i made my first podcast and i was able to add slides from keynote (that i had exported as jpgs - doh!). you can set up chapters or segments so each slide can be navigated to very quickly (thinking for my students now). the video exported is made to fit an iPod video screen perfectly, but i scaled it up more than double the size and the quality of the image was still very, very good.<br><br>my only complaint is that i cannot figure out how to add radio and other sound effects. but, i have to run to class and i'll fiddle with it more later.<br><br>oh, the segment i tested was 11 minutes long. the file (described a bit above) was less than 7 MB in size. that just blows my mind that they keep it so small. very, very cool. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
I think podcast could be really helpful for students for reviewing classes or lectures. you could make a podcast and add the class slides as the art work....<br><br>----<br>:) "In my experience, there's no such thing as luck." - Obi-Wan Kenobi

that's exactly what i did. it looks beautiful and the file size was very small. i doubled the size and the quality was still great.<br><br>unfortunately, i just tried viewing my podcast here on campus and the campus computers don't work with that quicktime. and, i can't install the quicktime stuff to make it work. looks like i'll be using sorenson squeeze and making it a flash file to be viewable by all browsers. <br><br>the quicktime version allowed each slide to be a chapter, so students can jump to any slide being discussed. this is very nice. my flash file loses this ability. makes it suck enough that i don't know if i'll use flash or not. i have to check out sorenson squeeze 4 to see what it adds over 3, which is what i have. bummer.<br><br>but first, i am going to talk with IT and see if this can be fixed.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
very cool. <br><br>Is the quicktime file compressed with H.264? Most of the PCs here don't have QT 7 and they choke on it. I've been using the Sorenson codec to compress but leaving it as a QT file. I haven't tried the Flash export. Its not on this computer, but I have it (Squeeze 4) in my office if you want me to check something out.<br><br><br>
wait, are you talking about squeeze 4 for flash? i was talking about the stand alone squeeze 4 that produces a flash file, but is it's own application (there is a difference). if it's squeeze for for flash, does it come with flash or did you pay for it as well? i ask because i am installing studio 8 with flash professional in the background as i type. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
yep. that's it. that's what i think i'll need unless i can get my university to upgrade it's quicktime. with over 22,000 students i am guessing that my request falls on deaf ears. then again, the person who heads the whole IT department wants me to call her tomorrow about something so i'll try and grab her ear??? <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
