    • Processor requirements based on second screen resolution set to 800x600
  • Presenting to Screen 2 requires:
    • Second display (projector or monitor)
    • Macintosh capable of dual screen display without mirroring:
      • PowerBook/MacBook/MacBook Pro (iBooks do NOT currently support dual display without mirroring)
      • PowerMac/Mac Pro (with dual display support)
      • iMac w/Intel Dual Core processor (previous iMacs do NOT support dual display without mirroring)
    • NOTE: v1.3 can display presentation on a single-monitor (iBook/pre-Intel iMac) system

*NOTE: LiveWorship 1.3.16 DOES run with on Rosetta (Apple Computer's emulator for programs compiled on PowerPC to run on their new Intel based computers). Using LiveWorship on an Intel Mac may see some performance issues and DVD capabilities will not be available. LiveWorship 1.3.26 is Universal Binary and those using Macs with Intel processors will see an improvement using this version. Note that our method of importing PowerPoint files broke in 1.3.26 since MS Office is not yet Universal Binary. We have provided on our download page a stand-alone application that still runs in Rosetta that can be used to convert PPT files to LW presentation files.

You can use LiveWorship to build and edit presentations (without a projector or second monitor attached). One of the advantages of using LiveWorship is that you can present a slide to the second screen while still seeing the LiveWorship control interface on your primary screen. In version 1.3, we have added a floating window so that you can preview a presentation without a projector or second monitor. Your computer specifications may not allow a second screen to be used for displaying a presentation.

If you are using a Macintosh iBook or pre-Intel iMac, neither of these models are designed to have dual display (only mirroring of the desktop on both monitors). PowerBooks/MacBook Pro's, Intel iMacs and most PowerMacs and Mac Pro's have the ability to "turn off mirroring" so that you can have multiple display windows. While not recommended or supported, some users have indicated they have found a way (a "hack") to allow an iBook or pre-Intel iMac to have dual screen functionality. See installation instructions (for Windows or Mac) for more information on configuring the second screen display. You can still display a presentation on the primary screen in version 1.3, but the presentation will cover the interface and you will need to use the keyboard to control the display of slides.

On Windows, you can right-click on the desktop and select Properties, then select the Settings Tab. See the installation instructions (for Windows or Mac) for a screen shot and how to establish if you can "extend your desktop" to have separate display capabilities.

LiveWorship was designed for a primary screen resolution of 1024x768 and the second screen set at 800x600 for optimal performance.

There is a known issue in versions previous to v1.2 if you have plugged in a second monitor/projector after the program has been started. Try quitting and restarting the program to recognize that a second screen has been added to your system. For more information about installing and setting up your computer to recognize the second screen, see the help page on installing (for Windows or Mac) LiveWorship or upgrade to v1.2 or greater.

LiveWorship has a license that allows for multiple computers to be used for building and editing presentations. The limitation is that you can only have one computer presenting at a time. If your organization is presenting in multiple rooms at the same time (such as a youth room and main sanctuary) or if you have multiple campuses, we would expect that you have the resources to purchase multiple copies of LiveWorship. See our End User License Agreement for more information.
