Learn How To Use CMG Pro Titles and Layers

By September 11th, 2018Tutorials

CMG Pro Titles and Layers are .PNG graphics with transparent backgrounds. These are useful for customizing the look of your announcements and screen visuals by using pre-made graphics that match on another and can be overlaid on any background. They can be used in ProPresenter, MediaShout and EasyWorship. They also work in Adobe Creative applications like Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects.

  4. Command-click (Ctrl-click on Windows) and drag your desired moving background over top of your new slide with the PNG graphic
