I have a long (one hour) video lecture that I would like to
put in the sidebar and use something like cuepoints to change the
slides as the movie plays. Kind of like the old Microsoft Producer
(if anyone remembers that) would let you do. Is this possible with
Presenter? Whenever I go to put a video into the sidebar, it wants
me to capture a new movie instead of import the movie. My PPT has
90 slides. I would hate to think that I would need to create 90
different video clips (1 for each slide) to get this thing to look
and function the way I want it to. Any help would be appreciated.
Discovered an "okay" way to do this, as I understand that
synchronizing slide timings to video is not a supported feature in
Presenter. If you have an flv file with a timecode, I have been
told you can use the timecode in the audio editor. I have not yet
been succesful with this, but did duplicate the audio track for my
video, import it, and then use the sync feature to get timings
right. The video and audio should sync up if it is a duplicate
file. You can then mute audio playback in the video tab.
It's a little confusing, and has drawbacks like large file
size and the possibility that audio and video can get out of sync
if the viewer manipulate playback controls. I would love to hear
ways to improve this process.
