Well, I've managed to create movies and post them on the web. So not bad. The big question that I now have is how the heck to I keep the clarity of the original movie file. Here's what I'm using
1. Created images in Photoshop
2. Loaded images to Windows Movie Maker Timeline - saved as .swf
3. Converted to.flv with Free Studio Manager 2.2
4. Created Flash file in Adobe Flash CS4 Pro - added .flv to timeline
5. Added skin
6. Pointed Path to .flv in Flash
7. Saved as .fla and .flv and uploaded .fla, .flv and .swf to server
I am wondering if I have to keep the image size correct coming into the Windows Movie maker somehow, and then keeping the video sizes
consistant throughout the remainder of the process?
Since you are moving between programs, you should make sure that the setting of each program ensures that the output siz eis the same as the source.
Hope this helps!!
I've been searching high and low to understand NTSC vs. PAL etc.
IN Window Movie Maker how do you keep the ratio correct once you drop the images in ie. I read the images should be 720 x 480 going in so all 25 of the images I used to create my movie in Windows Movie Maker are 720 x 480 and the output shoud be NTSC 4:3.
So how does this NTSC affect image quality?
Then I convert using DVDVIDEOSOFT converter, the .wmv to .fla and upload it to Adobe Flash.
So there's that issue- how does the converter maintain quality?
Then there's the issue of Adobe Flash CS4, do not know what units to output on this software 720 x 480 or NTSC 4:3?
And if I decide to increase the size in Adobe Flash on the layers how does that affect the quality?
Then I have to size the player in HTML for my webpage.
Do I add something to the heigth to offset for the skin(play,pause etc. on bottom)?
thanks, thoroughly confused.
