I'm trying to use Presenter with some screen capture and
other video an I cant seem to get the video to show up at the
correct size. If the video is scaled for screen capture it looks
really bad. I can build new resources or export to any type or
video/swf or FLV but I don't seem to be able to control how to get
this to work once in comes into presenter. Real video is OK as that
Personally, I record in Camtasia at 800x600, then have it
resize to 640x480. When I import that file into PowerPoint, it has
a huge white border around it, and I have to resize the video until
there's no white border left.
It's still quite large on the screen, and the fact that
PowerPoint / Presenter seem to resample/rescale the video seems to
lower the quality some, which is why I often use heavy zoom effects
I've tried using Captivate for creating the videos, but
honestly, it's faster and provides a better end result if I'm using
Camtasia. What software are you using?
Yes I'm using Camtasia too, I've been a user since version
to, I really like the presenter layout, for longer content I just
can see why you cant set video to be the correct size (100%) by
default screen recording always looses quality when not at 100%.
Unless I se any other ideas I'll try and work around it.
