My company recently purchased Presenter 6 to run on
PowerPoint 2003, which was great - we were able to produce some
really high quality content by incorporating screenshots, clip-art,
Flash animations and Captivate movies.
Then the dreaded upgrades began. We move to PowerPoint 2007
and were forced to upgrade to Presenter 7.0, which at the time
didn't seem like a big deal. However, since upgrading I've noticed
that graphics and in particular Captivate SWFs displayed in the
Presenter output are of a pretty low quality. I've set the image
setting to High in Presenter but it makes no difference.
I'm pretty sure it's not Captivate because the SWF output
looks perfectly good if played on its own directly in a web
Has anybody out there noticed this with Presenter 7 and if
so, have you got any idea why it happens and what I can do to fix
There is no reason that Captivate swf that played fine on
Presenter6/PowerPoint2003 should show up in degraded quality in
The image quality settings won't change anything in the
My best guess would be that the Captivate swf contains some
screenshots and the size of the flash object inserted into the
slide is not letting flash player draw the image properly.
Try adjusting the size of the flash object that gets inserted
into the slide to be same as how it appeared in
