Our church, (Charleston Harbor Bible Church) is used to using "The Celebration Hymnal" and some of the songs are different in Song Select On-Line.......I called Integrity Media and they said that for an ad-on for Song Show 7 to display exactely what is in our hymnal it would be like a total of $320 or something like that. Does anyone know how to get this to work?
Thanks!

I'm guessing you would be buying the Integrity Worship software, which would contain thier song database, and use the SSP Integrity module (formerly promodule) to connect SSP to it.

The songs in Song Select don't always match our hymnal either. But I just clone the song, edit the lyrics and verse order to match our hymnal.

I then put a (HFG) in the title to note that it has been edited to match Hymns for the Family of God. Anything in the title in parens will not show up on the screen.

Thanks for the tip about the Parens! I didn't know that. Of course there are a lot of things that I don't know about this software.

Another way is when you edit a song, make a collection called HFG and put all the HFG songs in that collection.  i would then put the number of the song in brackets eg: song title (234), so you can do searching on song numbers as well as the titles.

Hope that helps.

Our church also uses the Celebration Hymnal. Most of the differences between what is printed in the hymnal and in CCLI's Song Select are small. E.g., in the hymnal only the chorus of the song is printed, and in CCLI's Song Select all of the verses and the chorus are available. As long as the Author(s), copyright holder(s), year all match you can use the number in CCLI.

Sometimes you cannot find the song in CCLI's Song Select--if so, look for it under each individual author as sometimes it is listed by the last person, generally the one who created a choral ending or setting. You can also usually find it if you do an advanced search. If you search by catalog, in this case Ingegrity, you want the "Hosanna!" Music You will get 2000+ hits, then do an advanced search with Catalog > contains > integrity; Title >contains > song title; Author >contains > name. You get better results with "contains" rather than "is exactly" as field limiters. Sometimes when you search by the author, especially the person who wrote the choral setting, you only get the part he wrote. When in doubt CCLI will always be delighted to help you and will direct you to the correct song number with the correct information.

For example, in the hymnal # 225 is “Come, Christians Join to Sing.” If you search by title you will find the song, plus 10 others. You then need to read the catalog list and find “Word Music LLC . . .” That is the song, but only Lee Harrington is listed as the author on CCLI’s Song Select. The hymnal lists Christian H. Bateman and David Evans. In this case I would add those two names to the SSP General page for this song.

In the hymnal # 80 is “I Stand in Awe” by Mark Altrogge. In the hymnal only the first verse and chorus are shown. In CCLI’s Song Select there is a second verse. You have the option of including it or not. A similar situation exists with # 530 “I Will Call Upon the Lord” by Michael O’Shields.

A search for hymnal # 324 “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” will give you 25 hits. The basic song is public domain, however the version in the hymnal is copyrighted by Integrity. None of the listings in CCLI’s Song Select match what is printed in the hymnal. This is a time to call CCLI.

RE: Windows 10? by osborn4 in Windows 10

Have you looked at getting SSP to work properly when the magnification level of the desktop display is > 100%? With screens getting higher and higher res, I would be good to run at 125 or 150%

Using Digital Juice Overlays by fire in Version 8.1

Does Songshow 8.1 support Digital Juice overlays rendered in Quicktime Move file format with the compression being Animation?

If I render them in Quicktime Move file format with the compression being H.264 I seem to lose the alpha channel.

I can get them to work using AVI (type 2) file format with no compression but the file size is huge.  Any thoughts?

User experiences a range check or parsing error with a program or slide show. (TS277) by George in Troubleshooting

Symptom:
When attempting to open a program from a previous version the user receives a "Problem Parsing..." error.  This may also present as a range check, parsing error or general unexpected error with a program or an individual slide show being added to the program.

Possible Cause:
It has been found that older content from early Version 7 builds may have corrupted or incorrectly converted text elements in them that are causing this error.  In each case the issue was related to a text box in a slide show, either added individually or a slide show that existed in an old program.  The exact root cause is still unknown.

Possible Solution:  
If the user creates the Program/Slide Show from scratch this issues will not occur.

Possible Solution:  
If the user is able to determine the suspect slide show, the Text Box on the offending slide(s) can be identified, deleted and replaced as needed to resolve the issue.

Song text import from PPT fails (TS276) by George in Troubleshooting

Symptom:
When attempting to create a song via the Microsoft PowerPoint Importer, the user receives a message - "Unable to load PowerPoint text".

Possible Cause:
If the PowerPoint slides have any image objects in them it will prevent the text from being captured.  This is only for objects - A properly set background image should not cause this issue.

Possible Solution:  
This can be resolved by either removing the image objects altogether or setting it as a background if that is what was originally intended.

Song text import from PDF fails and SSP locks up. (TS275) by George in Troubleshooting

Symptom:
When trying to import text from a PDF file for a song using the PDF Importer, the text is visible but when the import is attempted the song is not imported and SongShow Plus stops responding.

Possible Cause:
There is a new version of the Acrobat Reader called "Adobe Acrobat Reader DC", the latest version is 2015.007.20033.
With this installed and an attempt to import any text caused the condition. 

Possible Solution:  
If this is uninstalled and replaced with the prior version of the Acrobat Reader (11.xx) then it works as expected.

I think that's a different "splash" screen. We're talking about on that comes up before SSP starts.

Templates or slides are slow to render or populate. (TS274) by George in Troubleshooting

Symptom:
When viewing templates or slides in the slide builder they are slow to populate, render or display.  These may also display slowly in SongShow Plus from a program.

Possible Cause:
If templates or other slides contain embedded images, this will slow down the display process.  This can change depending on several factors such as image file type or size.

Possible Solution:  
When adding media content, images in this case, they should be referenced rather than embedded whenever possible to avoid this bad behavior.

RE: Stage Display Question by George in Version 8.0

The Stage/Main mirroring is only controlled through the set up -- there are unfortunately no more granular or toggle on/off settings for this that you can do "on the fly" mid service.

Pan/zoom -- continued weirdness? by akins in Version 8.1

This is one of my most-used advanced effects. The implementation has always been strange and that seems to have continued into vs. 8.1. In vs.7, it worked well but the multi-zoom input section was a little hard to get used to and difficult to use since the scroll ribbon moved to the left after the values were entered, thus requiring a good amount of scrolling just to set it up. I think that the changes for vs. 8.1 are even worse! First of all, what is "percent" zoom suppose to mean? For example, is 10% suppose to indicate that the image will be 110% the original size, or 10% (that is reduced to 1/10th the original). If my measurements are correct 10% actually means 200%, that is, doubled in size. I haven't made a measurement for "100% zoom," but it looks like an enormous magnification -- not doubled as one might reasonably expect. Even using "percent" is a poor choice when the "percent of what" isn't provided. The zoom multiplication factor, as in vs. 7, makes more sense and is easier to understand. Since this new "percent" is restricted to 0-100, how does one zoom out?

The other problem with the "new & improved" input procedure is that there can only be 2 intermediate points, whereas vs. 7 allowed more (I never checked the maximum allowed, but I believe I once used 4.)

All in all, it looks like a botched job at improvement. I hope I've missed some key instructions that make this a more reasonable effect.

RE: Locking Content on Stage Display by kladner in Version 8.1

If you are only wanting to put a timer up you can use the instant message feature in the improv collection panel. I put a timer on the bottom right of the stage display using this feature every week.

RE: Question about audio files by George in Version 7

William - I did not see your other post - was this in Version 7?  I was looking at the setting is Version 8.

That said, there are similar presets in V7 as well.  In fact, you can go to Tools > Preferences > Program Panel and change the setting for that feature to No.  Look for "Set Background to black..." - it is near the bottom of the first Page.


I have moved this post to Version 7.

RE: Download an older version by George in Windows 8

I would recommend that you contact an admin at the church or other person that runs the worship that uses SongShow Plus and would be familiar with this.

They will know if they are current or intend to become current and they should also have the information you need.  If not, a church contact would need to contact the support team to check up on this.

As previously stated you could use the current version of SSP by downloading from HERE, but if you must get an older version, the only way to get that is to log in with the church credentials and download from the ones that are available to that account.

RE: Environmental projection effects by dreece in Version 8.1

At this time, what is sent to the environmental projection output is a mirror of the media item's background. There is no option to modify this in any way. We've considered some options to provide the capabilities you've requested since that would be helpful. In helping us determine please describe in a bit more detail what you would like to do with the environmental projection background. For instance, do you simply want to apply different effects to it or do you want a completely different background altogether. What effects do you want to use and why? Will a single set of independent settings be set on a per media item basis, or be applied to all media items presented?

UPDATE:

It was found that if users will un-check the "Use Presenter View" check box in the slideshow control tab that should control this behavior.
