I don't know of any way to stream a truly 1024x768 WMV, MOV or even FLV file, although it's certainly possible to create one, Matt. At least from version 7 of the software.
On the other hand, it sounds like you were able to export it as a 1024x768 file that could be viewed online by your members. So I'm not quite sure what you're looking for.
Version 7 has project presets for high definition video, including 720p and 1080i -- but not custom resolutions.
Thanks for the reply.
I did see the 720p preset and this does produce a nice image. The SD preset made the output look muddy and the screen text was unreadable.
That being said, when importing my media into a project on the 720p preset I get the black letterbox bars on the side.
I did render a 10 second test area and changed the output size to 1024x768. I was afraid it would squash the entire video, but much to my surprise it just cropped it. So, while I have to work with the letterboxing I can output an actual 1024x768 video. I was also having a little trouble because I was using File - Export Movie to, well, export my movie. When I tried the Share task, set it to PC and changed the settings this was much easier and produced a much better result.
Thanks for the help!
FYI, I use PE7 to export it as a wmv. I'm playing with Expression Encoder to then encoded this with VC-1 for Silverlight clients.
It sounds like this solution works, then? If so, great news! Glad I could help.
