When I have created my presentation and I export it – the text and images seem to not be as good quality as the ones when I preview in slide-effect – I have also noticed the example presentations on the websites also show good quality video – Can you please tell me what are the best settings for exporting to AVI and then FLV – I’ve tried using 640×480 – 700 bit rate and that is not great but when I increase to 1200 bit rate it gets better.
Well, for the website movies I used the standard preset values for FLV output (“Flash Movies – Low Quality” – for the small, and “Flash Movies – Hi Quality” for the one on the home page).
The most important setting for the quality is effectively the bitrate, 1200 is good but uses a lot of bandwith, and 500-700 does not use much bandwith but may be too small for dynamic novies… it is a trade-of.
With the parameter image=https://www.slide-effect.com/movies/sample4b_h.jpg to specify the still image shown when not playing.
About the pro version, I am working hard on it actually (and the new standard version too). Really, it depends of how many features I want to add … I won’t give any date, but I hope I can still release it this month.
