  • Lookining for Alternatives - Power Point & Co.

    So i'm doing a very important presentation in 2 weeks, and i wanna be 'different'

    its a school project, which has some prize money layin' on top.


    I did a lot of stuff in adobe after effects and photoshop to create some eyecandy, now a lot of parts of my presentation will include video.
    Now i'm looking for a good presentation software that allows the seamless integration of videos, Open Office failed for me, it played in a tiny viewport, so did Power Point, the vid didnt even play..


    And even if things would work, open office and power point dont have as awesome effects as, lets say apple keynote.

    So any suggestions for me?

    Life's too short to live it fast.

      If you have the skills and software, you could present the project through a website / Flash app.

          So it's a fake business plan or is it a fake company?

          If it's a fake business plan, I can't think of anything fancy you could with it other than make sure you sound like you know what you're talking about, sound committed to the plan, and have goals and such clearly laid out, but isn't too complex or over-the-top.

          If it's a fake company, then a nice website, a fake printed portfolio of your fake clients, fake business cards, etc. If it's a group effort, get everyone in business casual or formal, maybe make so you have the audience participating in a company's meeting (or whatnot) so people get a feel for the operations of the business, etc.

            A Flash app sounds like it could do the job.

              try mediashout... it is a rather expensive program, but there is a trial period - and it basically plays every file type possible. I use it almost every day, and there is nothing better.

              It was designed for churches, but many concerts, seminars, and conventions are beginning to figure out how sweet it is. It can play a dvd from the disc, play an audio file while you display a bunch of images, play ppt files, works as a dj software, can display flash files and games, webpages, text files, etc... and it does all of this on the secondary screen without any controls visible.

                I think people try to hard with power point presentations. When it comes to giving an informative presentation you should realise a few things, graphic effects moving objects and such are just distractions, so are crazy fonts and multicoloured writing. A good presentation should include the key points within an easy access format such as bullet points, the colours between the text and the background should be contrasting but constant. But the most important thing, pictures and diagrams should be relevant, they should have an exact meaning specifying the point your making and not just because it looks pretty.

                    The guys who brought you "The Website is Down" have a new hysterical video about the clueless sales guy's travails with "Excel":

                    I'd warn about the language but the real danger here is someone hearing you giggle from your cubicle. ;)
