Is there a way to apply a template that formats both the Main Content tab and Recording/Alternate tab at the same time? Or to set a background template to use the foreground image from the Content tab automatically? We are wanting full screen slides output to our main projector and then using upper left corner slides over video feed sent to OBS for recording but all set up in Proclaim so the media person doesn't need to control both OBS and Proclaim - Can start the stream in OBS and then only control Proclaim during the service.

By default, they should all look exactly the same. The default is "Slide" for customizable items (Content, song, bible) and "Mirror" for non-customizable items (OSB, BibleTrivia, Video, Image Slideshow)

If you truly want them both the same and just PIP on your stream, you dont even need the extra screen, and can instead just use slides for both.

You only need the extra screen, if during some point you do want to use lower thirds or blank the slide being sent to the stream.

It sounds like you aren't seeing them the same for both like I described.... You could have setup a default Smart Media in the settings for your screen..

You can clear this by going to Settings > Default Media, choose the screen from the dropdown and then clear the chosen media by hitting "Restore default" on the right.

Thanks for your reply. We are seeing the same in both. I have set things up so that no one needs to touch anything within OBS once the stream has started. We have the video feed going into Proclaim and then a screen capture of the Proclaim Recording alternate screen going into OBS and the sound feeding directly from out sound desk into OBS. This way, with the right settings in Proclaim of exactly what we want sent to the stream, the media person only has to click through the Proclaim session during the service and not worry about controlling the changes for the stream.

The only way I have found to make it work so far is to convert the PowerPoint slides into image files and add then as Content/Foreground Images and use a smart media template applied in the Recording alternate screen tab to put the slide in the correct position in the upper right corner over the video feed. This is working, just takes a bit of work as I have to individually add each slide image twice to set it up.
