Basher customization in Preferences

The bashers are very helpful. Over time, I had ideas of making bashers more functional and customizable. It would definitely be very helpful to make the various bashers customizable.

It begins by having “Basher” as a new item in the Preferences window. It can have the following sub-items, corresponding to the available bashers:
– Bible Basher
– Slide Basher
– Alert Basher
– Stage Basher

Some ideas for various bashers are as follows:
Bible Basher: Same options as “Bible”, so that the content displayed by Bible as a service item versus Bible displayed through the basher can be distinctively different, i.e. a suggested Bible basher improvement elsewhere to display the passage on the current background.
Slide Basher: Same option as “Slides”? Coming to think of it, there’s no real advantage here, since I can already choose the most suitable and reusable background as the default background and customize the background in slide sets.
Alert Basher: Font size, ticker tape color, scrolling speed are helpful customizations. Tickers for general audience is generally more helpful if it is slower, so they can catch the message.
Stage Basher: Font size, ticker tape color, scrolling speed are helpful customizations, especially font size and scrolling speed. The liturgist may be awkwardly reading words as they leisurely appear, so it’s helpful to speed it up sometimes.

Bible Basher option to overlay text on current background

Currently the Bible Basher opens the default background (and default Bible, which is not a necessary component of this suggested feature).

I think it can be visually less jarring if there is an option to let the Bible Basher display the Bible verse(s) on the current background–be it a still background, motion background, or streaming video. This is helpful if the worship leader is quoting a Bible verse in the middle of a song while the still/motion background is playing, or when a preacher is quoting the Bible during as the pulpit is streamed live.

Here are some implementation ideas:
1. Have a checkbox on the Bible Basher slide/section (ctrl+1) for “Use current background”, so it can be toggled to use the default background or to use the current background (whether still/motion/stream is currently in use).
2. In Preferences, have “Bible Basher” as a separate customizable option under “Bible” (Oh! Here comes ideas for Basher customization!). That way the configuration for the Bible Basher can be different from the Bible configuration–Different translation, number of verses shown, text alignment, etc, and especially the option to display text on “current” background.

Associate Transition to Service Item

I would love to associate a transition to a service item or be able to enter a transition as an item into the service list to avoid selecting different transitions manually before each service item is placed on the screen.

Flexible projection layout

Create a system where the layout of the projection can be altered. e.g. songbook and number smaller in the corner, in a different font/colour, main lyrics in the center (+ location/alignment options as they are now), copyright at the bottom, etc. A bit like a master page in PowerPoint.

Alpha (Transparent Logos)

I would love to have an alpha or transparent logo allowed either toggleable or otherwise. I don’t want to re-render all of my backgrounds (300 approx.) with the logo on top. Or you could have an overlay to go on top of the live output. This would really help me out!

Tags for picture

It may be useful to be able to add tags for the pictures so it will be easier to search for appropriate background on the go.
