  1. Wow, what a great demonstration! Thanks much. I can't say that it's crystal clear me exactly how it all works at first glance, but I get the general idea and with a bit of study using your example I should be able to get up to speed quickly. Thanks again.
  2. According to the docs, Hide Child objects: Will hide any objects inserted as a Child of a main object I thought that meant that if this option is checked with the parent object selected, all attached child objects would be hidden but as does not appear to be the case in my testing, there must be another explanation?
  3. Yep, exactly what I typically do. In fact I was working on a pretty large project using Premiere Pro and given the constant changes along with some "go back" requests, I was using a naming convention along the lines of Project_01, Project_02, Project_03 etc. etc. to make sequential changes. I was up to over 40 "Save as" before that project was wrapped up. Hopefully other than Cntrl+S being an option with PTE 10, there will be a "Save as" option in order to use this strategy. And I still would like to see my "Revert" option. Not a big deal either way...
  4. Thanks for the input Igor. Ctrl + S in O&A will definitely help. Never been a fan of Auto Save myself. I can understand how in principle it can help, but I prefer to manage my own save points. For example (assuming the Cntrl+S feature is present), I may be working in O&A and add/adjust a number of keyframes, then SAVE. Make several other changes then SAVE. Finally get a brilliant idea of something I want to do only to find out it was a bad idea (happens often!). I don't want to lose the changes I made during the first two SAVEs but at the same time I don't want to save these last misguided steps. Seems the only option at that point is to close the program, don't SAVE, then reopen. Having an option to simply "Revert" would be work well. Not huge issues but just wondering if perhaps others work the same way.
  5. May be missing something basic but when working in the Objects & Animations area, is there any way to save changes you've made without having to "close" first? Also, at least with my workflow there are times when I get into all kinds of "trouble" when mucking with numerous settings and I just want to bail out and get back to where I started. Is there any way to "Revert" as one can do with other programs without having to close & reopen PTE?
  6. Very good demonstration-- thanks. Also quite helpful that it includes a number of other useful tips along the way.
  7. Thanks Barry. That's one of many of your excellent videos I've watched. However these folks are more of a PowerPoint mentality than a slideshow of images. I understand that anyone with an imagination should be able to watch the video and easily see how their vision could be created with PTE, however I was looking more for a finished project/show that might be more in line with a corporate type presentation. You know-- boring stuff like pie charts, org charts, and quarterly reports. :-) In the meantime I've started to put something together myself based on some of their existing material.
  8. +2 on the thank you. Potentially a very useful tool.
  9. I have a client who wants to be able to incorporate training type videos into their eLearning system. Although there's tons of really great sample shows out there, I'm trying to find one with more of a "corporate" look. Ideally with some video & voice over, perhaps some basic fade in/out text overlays-- stuff like that. Perhaps someone here can recommend a PTE along those lines that I could show them?
  10. Thanks DG. I've been working my way through the online manual.
  11. Thanks for the detailed response Lin. Makes perfect sense. Our main video production machine does have enough HP but for all the other reasons you pointed out it seems it would be worthwhile to selectively set overall image size to suit what's going on where it appears in the presentation.
  12. Working on producing a project that will ultimately be projected on an HD projector at 1920 x 1080. For some slides where there will be little to no animation so I assume there a resolution of 2,000 px will suffice. However a few of the slides will have quite a bit of "zooming in" so there I would think a higher resolution source image would work best in those cases. My question is are there any downsides to importing all images whether they will have any animation or not at their full, native resolution of 5,616 × 3,744 px? Might that cause a noticeable slowdown or perhaps result in a loss of quality when downsizing?
  13. Denis & Dave-- Thank you very much for the input- and the sample! I was thinking that somehow there must be a way to "group" and even did some searches for the parent/child thing but didn't come up with anything. The style will be a huge help in beginning to understand how things work.
  14. Here's a sample digital wall I forgot to include...
