I'm rendering to see how a .mov looks, but any help to keep the graphics sharp would be appreciated.

This is for a webinar, so, small screens.

Thanks,

Ty Ford

Are you playing back as better quality or better performance? Sounds like the latter which lessens the quality a little for much better RT playback.

It's under the View dropdown menu at the top right. Choose Better Quality.

I have noticed that PPT slides look blurring while playing until they get rendered.

You already got the most likely answers, but, I'll be the one to ask: how are the slides set up/generated?

Did you have powerpoint export a movie file or individual stills, and if stills, what frame size and format?

When I'm doing these (in fact, doing one today), I pre-format the slides from 3:4 to already be 16:9 (Surprising, how many users don't know you can change that, and they do horrible stretches instead to fit a frame), apply drop shadows on the bare text lines to make them read better, and I output full HD size .tif files.

I also always make one extra slide that's just a bare background in the same style as the original slides - makes it easier to do fixes later.

Thanks Everyone!

Mark, These were individual jpeg files. I wasn't the one exporting them, so I can't really answer much more.

This will be a 4:3 presentation and that's the way the slides are formatted.

Regards,

Ty Ford
