When you prepare for a lifestyle video shoot of a rugged trail hiker and your model shows up in an evening gown you clearly didn't communicate clearly. Telling talent what lifestyle clothes to wear is simple, of course, but the selection, patterns, colors and accessories aren't as easy to define.

I ordereda Video Capture device from Tiger Direct and it came with Cyberlink PowerProducer and PowerDirector. When I plug the capture device into the computer and try to download the video, I get a couple things that I'm not sure about.

1. There are a ton of "Dropped" frames. What is that?

2. When I replay the video I downloaded, I don't hear the audio. Why is that?

Hey there,

I'm a little young to the business side of videography, and I've only just begun to get into contracts, rights and all that legal jargon. This is mostly because my strengths are in Cinematography, but unfortunately to make a living these days I need to put on a producer hat most of the time and... well that's not my strength at all. So I was hoping to get some feedback on a recent problem I had...

The analog switch is done. Like the Y2K scare, the sky did not fall and the machines did not take over. We've said all we're going to say about it. It is History. However, it IS a big moment in history, as video has been around for 6 decades, most of us are acutely connected to television transmission. As video creators, we producers are even more connected.

Looking for help with "Producer for PowerPoint".

This is free software (full name: "Microsoft Producer for PowerPoint 2003") which allows me to sync video with PowerPoint slides.
I use it often to upload WMV videos to our web.
It works well on my PC, but I'm having issues when using it on my iMac (details, below).

Two questions:
Is there ANYTHING out there for sale that does this as well or better?
Does anyone else use this software on the PC-side of their Mac?
If so, have you had any problems...and how did you resolve them?
