Training material distributed with Microsoft Producer

Hi all,

This is my first attempt at creating training materials to be distributed with Microsoft Producer. Producer is a companion product to PowerPoint which allows you to combine video, audio, PowerPoint slides and html into a single stream viewed via a browser. It's by no means a great product but it served a purpose for this particular client. I believe Producer may be discontinued in the near future which is a shame. Anyone know of any similar products (that don't require a special server)?

This piece is intended to be viewed in a classroom situation with the trainer explaining what's going on in the screenshots. The video is really only eye candy designed to set the scene. Takes a while the first time you run it, sorry! Also, I believe you need to have PowerPoint installed to correctly view it - I'm afraid I haven't tested to see what happens if you don't have PowerPoint installed as my client doesn't have this problem.

Technical(ish) notes:
- Shot on a Canon XM2 (GL2) with a wide angle lens and a Formatte matte box (Just about to upgrade to an XL2 - can't wait!).
- Lighting was a single 3 x 250w switchable and dimmable halogen unit with soft box.
- We recorded straight into DV-Rack.
- Title sequences created in After Effects.
- Editing done in Vegas.
- Slides created in PowerPoint 2003.
- Assembled in Producer.

All feedback warmly welcomed - I'm especially interested to hear if people had any problems actually seeing the thing! Like I said, first time with Producer and there is a real lack of resources available for learning the ins and outs.

Case Study Video

I was commissioned to create a series of video case studies for a software company. The subjects are pretty dry (warehouse management, retail management etc) but I have been contracted to create two of these a month for the rest of the year so my mortgage will be paid!

Here is an example of one and I'd welcome any feedback. (approx 5mb)

Technical notes:
- Shot on a Canon XM2 (GL2) with a w/a adapter
- Audio recorded (in a horribly noisy environment) on an AT835b shotgun straight to camera
- Lights used: 3 x Ianiro Lilliputs plus a 3x250w bulb switchable/dimmable unit with soft box
- Title sequences, flow chart and other 3d PinP effects created in After Effects (Flow chart itself created in Visio)
- Edited and assembled in Sony Vegas
- Logo sequence created by a third party (I'm not keen on it)
- Distribution is via the customers website, on CD, as a giveaway at trade shows on a 1Gb USB data thingy and on large plasma screens at trade shows.

You're very kind!

Vegas is a great piece of software and I've used it since version 3. It's a case of Vegas being the first video editing software I used and I just stayed with it.

I have to say that in some respects I wish I had come across Premier first, because of the tight integration with other Adobe products (specifically After Effects and Photoshop) but I've invested too much time in Vegas to change horses now.

Some of those effects were created in After Effects, not Vegas - specifically the title sequences and the "fact file" segments. I find After Effects more intuitive for 3d (OK 2.5d) work such as the virtual camera roaming around the flow chart.

Glad you liked it and thanks again.

I work with media services under information technology here at OU. I do a lot of media stuff for ton of different depts and sometimes private clients, but this is the first promo video we are doing for our actual dept. This is first 30 seconds of the estimated 3-5min web video to show new students what IT is all about. Enjoy. - RH

AMF's latest: "MOSES"

Greetings folks! Here's my latest directorial effort: "MOSES." It's a crime drama, about a wandering homeless man who's mysterious past is about to come to light.

I've been working with my independent study class in electronic media production at CSU Fresno to complete this film since the end of January. It's the result of hard work from over 30 college students, that's including talent and crew. It was an awesome experience. Hope you enjoy, lemme know what you think.

Here's the link. It's quite hefty. Sorry 56Kers. If there's a demand I could provide a smaller file. ENJOY!
(QT 6 or higher needed, 27 minutes, 166.06 mb, Size - 480x320)
Right click or option click and 'save target as' to download to your comp

Here's some screenshots:
