Prompt! Lite is teleprompter software for on-camera performers and announcers.

When on-camera talent performs, they read what they speak from a teleprompter. Traditionally, this task is performed by a dedicated computer with an application to edit and scroll the text at a user driven speed using a piece of hardware called a "scroller". The Video output of the scrolling text is reflected from a half silvered (pellix) mirror and the camera shoots through the other side of the mirror so that the talent is looking into the camera but reading the reflection of the text.

I downloaded this app for my MAC a long time ago and it worked very well, except that I had to do longer scripts in 2500 character pieces.

However, one day, for no apparent reason, I started getting an error message about an Xtra (Vector Shape) missing from the folder. Then I started getting a different one as well: Xtra (font) missing. As a result, I can no longer run the program.

So I completely uninstalled everything I could find on it, reinstalled and it still had the same. So I uninstalled it again, bought the upgrade, installed it, but no change. I contacted support, who kept emailing me directions, which I could not figure out. I'm pretty good at following directions, but this guy was apparently a total geek who could not communicate except in Geek-eze!

Anybody have any idea how to fix this problem??

You should redownload the app as it sounds like you have moved the app and lost some of it's components. Reinstalling should fix your issue.

Fantastic app. Works as described. I've tried many software teleprompters but this one has lots of features. I bought both the Mac and PeeCee versions and share the files between both versions. What I like the most is being able to share files with my voice-over and they use the software and make adjustments to their settings and when they use my version, the settings (speed, font size, etc) are saved and used.

I only wish that there was only one application so I could switch between having a windowed app and one with black in the background. Not a big deal to switch though.

Cut the crap and call this a demo, not a free version. A 2500 character limitation is essentially a demo since there's not a whole lot you can do. This is the kind of sleazy tactic that causes me to not consider their "full" version for a second. Adios

Prompt! Lite is teleprompter software for on-camera performers and announcers.

When on-camera talent performs, they read what they speak from a teleprompter. Traditionally, this task is performed by a dedicated computer with an application to edit and scroll the text at a user driven speed using a piece of hardware called a "scroller". The Video output of the scrolling text is reflected from a half silvered (pellix) mirror and the camera shoots through the other side of the mirror so that the talent is looking into the camera but reading the reflection of the text. This requires lots of hardware and software to achieve the same results as Prompt! and a laptop computer or computer monitor. By placing the laptop computer between the talent and the camera the talent can read text from the top of the laptop screen and still appear to be looking at the camera if the camera is far enough back using a long lens. Trial and error is the key to getting a natural look to this process, but the further the camera is from the subject, the better. If the talent will be controlling their own scrolling, then mouse control is best, and if you have long mouse cord, that's even better. There is a built-in function to allow someone else to control the speed by using the keyboard or mouse. Use both if you like. Prompt! also mirrors the text and displays at multiple resolutions.
