although quality can be an issue you could use the screen capture codec of windows media encoder (a free download from microsoft). I have used it a few times in the past and it does work. Depending on what you are trying to achieve another approach would be to use movie maker to create a movie that contains the "non-video" components of your presentation (assuming these are images or powerpoint slides).

Re: USB 2.0 for DV-AVI files? 12/6/2003 3:11:43 AM   (Total replies: 0)
IEEE 1394 is the same as i-link and is also known as firewire. You need a IEEE-1394 input on your pc to capture video. If you do not have one cards are cheap these days although bear in mind you need a cable as well which can be almost as expensive as the card. If you have a dv input and you are running XP your PC will recognise when you connect your camcorder and will give you a list of available editiing software to use. I find that movie maker is good enough for most jobs.

colour effects 10/2/2003 5:16:23 PM   (Total replies: 1)
For those of you who want a bit of fun but don't understand XML (i am by no means an expert) the XML snippet below contains the code to create your own colour effects in Movie maker. To use it cut between the "begin cut" and "end cut" lines below and paste it into a notepad file which you then save as as a file with an .XML extension eg myeffects.xml in a folder called AddonTFX (This has to be in the locale ID folder in the folder where movie maker is installed) in my case the full path ...

Re: Best DVD Creation Software/MyDVD a warning 11/29/2003 2:18:01 PM   (Total replies: 2)
i bought mydvd 5 the other day following recommendations here and elsewhere and i find that when trying to edit chapters it abnormally terminates. The Sonic knowledgebase says that this is a known issue which affects "some computers" and will be fixed in the next release, slated for late nov 2003 (i.e. now). I couldn't contact their support as it was thanksgiving on thurs, then a day off to recover and now the weekend. I will be chasing them next week and will update the thread if i learn ...

Re: Timing Capture Add-In 7/6/2005 4:12:23 AM   (Total replies: 1)
I think there is an option with powerpoint to catpure the timings of the slide. Another approach which we have used when we cannot load software onto the presenters PC is to use pencil and paper to record the timings manually (in the end we wrote a small VB stopwatch app that would record timings).

If you are looking for a way to change the title of the slide in the table of contents you can do this by pressing the table of contents tab on the main producer screen and then change the text for the TOCentry.

i just went to the Prelinger Archive and it is BRILLIANT. if you've got the bandwidth you can download some real gems. you can import the mpeg1 versions directly into moivemaker and the quality in a smallish window if excellent. there's 1930 to 1970 adverts, propaganda films, social documentaries and some hilarious anti-porn and drugs stuff.
