Tips: Video and Slides
Video (RealPlayer is best for the Web);
Slides (QuickTime is best) with or without commentary.
Processing Movies for the web:
SLIDES are better processed in Photoshop, adjusted to the size of the slide-show (350 x 270 pixels seems to be a good compromise), sharpened and saved as PICT files, then added to the timeline of Final Cut Pro. Add the sound track, remembering where the frame changes will occur after export. Export at 0.2 frames per second (i.e. one frame each 5 seconds) at full quality.
Then, in MediaCleanerPro, save it as a as jpeg quality 20%, using Qualcom PureVoice 8 kHz Full Rate for sound reduction. DON'T compress Video header, otherwise you'll limit your audience (including one of our Macs). DON'T 'Maintain Long Frames' or you'll increase the size by 50% for nothing.
An example on the web is:
And a couple of additional notes that may be helpful along the way:
