My company is currently evaluating Adobe Presenter to
possibly move our training efforts towards Adobe Flash technology.
Currently we produce AVI videos which are converted to WMV for web
delivery. Since we have 100's of these videos, our preference is to
convert these AVI (or WMV) files and embed them into a slide in
Our videos consist of an instructor's desktop showing our
home-grown software and how to use it. So, unlike live action
video, a lossy solution won't work for us as it distorts the fine
details of our software interface.
I've tried having Presenter convert the AVI for me into FLV
but the results were not acceptable (keep in mind we need to expand
the video to completely fill the PPT slide. For an example, see:
For cases like this, is it better to try to find an separate
AVI to FLV converter or an AVI to SWF converter? If so, what
software is recommended? In my tests either the image is distorted
or the video contains oddities, like blurring then sharpening
throughout the video playback.
