Building a video presentation for site
What is the best way to give a video introduction to a website?

Msg#: 4190296 posted 5:43 pm on Aug 21, 2010 (gmt 0)


I need to be able to give a 3 minute overview of our business model to prospective clients, as a video. It needs to be very professional and slick, and explain a few difficult concepts. It needs a voiceover and needs to show different slides.

What's the best way of building such a video? Does anyone here have any experience doing this? Is it best just to use Flash to create one from scratch, or is it best to export something from Powerpoint and then somehow add in a voiceover?

I've never done anything like this before so any information would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks for your help

If you wanted to do this yourself it's pretty big learning curve. For starters you would want a decent editor, Ulead Video Studio is adequate without getting into the high end software.

Any decent editor is going to have an option for voiceover, generally you would rough in your visual resources for the video portion. A built in recorder will allow you to record as the rough video is playing. Once you have the audio you can tweak the video...

You would keep this in a high quality format, if for example you were using DV cam just keep it as DV. You'd export or use other software to convert to web friendly format.
