Jagged Video In Power Point

    The video clips that I embedded into my Powerpoint slideshow has jagged
    motion when replayed. It smooths out if you repeat it for about 4 or 5
    times, but never the first time. The video clips were developed using
    TurboCAD 10.x and AnimationLab 3.x, and range from 10 to 40 frames per
    clip.

    What can do to fix this issue?

    I am using an AMD Duron 1.8 GHz, 512 MB and Powerpoint 2000 on Windows
    2000 Pro.

    Thank you in advance ...

  2. At first I thought it might be the frame rate but since you mentioned
    that it smoothen out after few times playing, it could be a graphics
    card issue. The only way to test it is to playback your presentation in
    another PC.

    Wel, I am still a bit in the trial and error. I didn't realize that
    the video files are merely linked to the original copies on the hard
    drive. They are actually located on the network, and that might have
    been causing the jagged motion. However, that is a little of a
    surprise, since it is over a 10/100 MPS network. I am trying it out on
    my other slower machines to verify that.

    Thanks for yur input ...

    What's the codec?

    Why do you need anything that's 40 fps? How large are the video files?

    I am not sure how to find out what the codec is, but the size of the
    files range from 10 to 60 MB. Some of them have over 40 fames for the
    whole file, and the frame rate ranges from 5 to 10 FPS.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks ...

    Do the video files play OK in media player?

    40 frame sfor the whole file? I think you might be using the wrong
    terminology. Why would a file of 40 frames be at least 10 meg? a 40
    frame movie at 10 FPS lasts 4 seconds. Can you clarify?
