Alternate Output is almost here!

You've been asking and we've been listening. 
Coming soon to EasyWorship subscription: Alternate Output will finally be here to make your livestreaming even easier! Use the Main Output for your songs and sermons, Foldback for whoever is on stage, and Alternate Output for environmental in-house projection OR to give your online viewers a different display. It's entirely up to you. We love giving you as many options as possible so you can create the best worship experience for your church.

@Steve. I appreciate the challenges developers face these days and I understand the gravitation towards subscription-based licence but as Easyworship still offers both licences it would be fair to meet us halfway and to totally shut us out!

We are absolutely ready to test.  I would like to be notified as soon as it is available.  thank you.

This is great news, exited to try it out. 

How will it work with the alpha channel feature? 

Thanks Dan and Softouch, this is tremendous news, looking forward to testing it. Will this allow for simultaneous use to four separate outputs from our graphics card?

Margaret Adams, the alpha channel will work with the new alternate output.

David Ramage, the alternate output will be separate from the other outputs, so you can have 1. your control screen 2. your main output (FOH) 3. foldback 4. alternate output. And if you're using alpha channel on the main output and/or the alternate output, that would require a separate video port for each one. So if you're not using any alpha channel or NDI, and you want to use all the outputs, then Yes, it would be 4 separate outputs on your video card.

 So how is this going to work for a Church that purchased EW7 outright? Is there going to be an addon that they can purchase to add it to their release? Our Church has a strict "buy software outright" policy and refuses to "rent" software month to month.

Any new feature that is added to the current version of EW will only be available to subscribers until we release the next full version. So when the next full version is released, you will have the option to purchase that and it will include any added features from EW7.

What does that mean to be a subscriber, please.  We have a campus license, I just don't know what the terminology means to be a subscriber.

When you purchase EW, you have the option to get a one-time purchase of a campus or single projector license or you can purchase a subscription and pay a monthly or annual fee. One of the benefits to purchasing the subscription is that you get all the new features that are released as soon as we release them.

Dan, I'd be interested in the same email you sent Steve. We have an EW7

campus license also and while purchased more than a year ago, I'm uncertain about a new subscription for early access to features. As the wrong type of paying customer (in this instance) I feel disincentivize in potentially waiting artificially for new features I would otherwise get in a feature or paid upgrade. I'm generally more interested in purchasing software outright and upgrading based on needs or compelling new features. EW is fairly slow on the latter so a subscription isn't appealing unless there is a roadmap of other new features that I can decide on.

Thank you I understand now.  If there is any chance that we can purchase the one feature, I'd be interested, but between purchasing the full program less than a year ago and just having to upgrade our computer to address the need for streaming, we're not buying a completely new program.

Steve, I sent you an email.

Is these out yet? 

Not yet. They would have made a post about it if it was.

We are using it in the church, but some errors found: - The LOGO button should work as the CLEAR on the alternate output as it is used to send lyrics with no background. Because, today LOGO show Up all lyrics.
