Topic: FLV files with Alpha Channel in Connect using Presenter 7
We want to incorporate video in our training by using FLV files. I have recorded a video using green screen (shot in DV mode 720 x 480) imported into Premeire PRO CS3 as an AVI file. It was trimmed and exported as an MOV file. The MOV file was imported into AfferEffects CS3 and the background removed using Keylight 1.2. The file was then exported to an FLV file using alpha encoding for transparency. The FLV file was inserted into a PPT 2003 slide using Presenter 7 import movie option.
The transparency works fine but the image is very pixelalated. I have placed the results on an external site so you can see what I am talking about http://www.lambobuilder.com/testvideo/
My questions are:
1. What type of video capture should be used with the end result being as I described. I have High Def camera capable of HDV 1080P or simple DV.
2. What FLV settings should be used? I do not see any difference between export and rendered versions out of AfterEffects.
3. If I had to give up the AlphaChannel, is there a better way of accomplishing what I am trying to do?
Are there currently any resources or white papers available to help educate me?
Thanks in advance
