Important folders and drives.

TFH Media
This drive has all created content for events split in the subfolders below

Weekend:  all assets for weekend services
Encounter: 

Make sure to drop files into the specific services folders ON the CG system.  The best practice is to NOT run presentations from flash drives

 

The Cloud:  the cloud is a synced folder between all three campuses.  A couple important folders to note.
The Cloud/Weekend Drop
The Cloud/Thursday Prayer

 

 

 


THE CLOUD:

'The Cloud' is TFH Production cloud folder.  It is used to transport files from our off-site offices to our three campuses.

On all of our systems 'the cloud' is located in the 'TFH Media Drive'.

All of the assets for weekend services are located within the "Weekend Drop" folder.

Adding Songs/Presentations to the playlist

New Songs

When a song does not exist in the library, the search will inform of no results in the "Pro Library", but underneath the library header there is a section titled "Song Select".  Song select is a service TFH subscribes to that will allow importing of song lyrics without having to manually type in text.

For example.  While searching for "Oceans" from HIllsong, no results show in the Pro Library, but there are results under SongSelect.  To get a preview of the lyrics on the songs, click on the song, a pop out window will show with a preview of the lyrics.

To add the song to the library click the "page" icon with the plus.

The Import Window will appear.  See pic below for specific import settings.  For Template, see description below for more info on templates.

Countdown Clocks

Production uses countdown clocks to ensure that the service stays on time.  

OPEN CLOCKS WINDOW
To open the clocks window click the clocks icon, if icon is not visible then use " view > clocks ".

COUNT DOWN TIMER vs COUNT DOWN TO TIME
Count Down Timer allows you to give an allotted amount of time to countdown (i.e. 38:00 minutes).
Count Down To Time allows you to give a specific time to countdown to (i.e. 7:30 pm).
To change settings click the "clock" icon to the left of duration.
Overrun will allow the clocks to show amount of time past "zero" and will start to count negatively.  This should always be on.

See all illustrations below.

SCHEDULER

ProPresenter: Scheduler


SCHEDULER

TFH uses scheduler as in ProPresenter to automate service start times and make it easier for ops at all three campuses to start ON TIME.

Opening Scheduler

Scheduler can be found in two places.

On the tool bar and in the 'view' dropdown on the toolbar.

Pointing to the correct locations

Scheduler will open a dropdown box.  To set scheduler up we are going to point to input two separate criteria of firing; 'playlist' and 'document'. The playlist we'll select 'weekend', the document will be 'weekend template'.  With the countdown being the first item always in the weekend document, it will fire that at the specified time.

Setting up the time

Announcement videos and countdowns now play BEFORE service with the end of the countdown happening at the turn of the hour.  We'll need to sum the time of the two videos together, and subtract that from the top of the hour. 

Using our example below, the first video is :45, the second video is 2:05. That gives us a total video run time 2:50.

 9:00:00 AM -0:02:50 = 8:57:10

Using that timing will have our videos end run time at 900am to start service on time.

See below for ProPresenters Tutorial, scheduler starts at 8:45 into the video.
