I have a client that wishes to play a tour from a DVD in their reception. The only way I can think of to do it would be to record the screen with screen capture software. It needs to be fairly high resolution say 1080p. In the past I have tried a couple of screen capture programs but they never produced very good results.
Any advise appreciated.
Steve

Hey Steve!

Are you on Mac or PC?

On Mac:
QuicktimePlayer can record the screen as movie - for free.
This one is great: http://www.syniumsoftware.com/de/screenium/


But - @Alexandre: doesn´t PTP2 provide automatic tours?

I have a PC.
Also have a copy of QuickTime player so will see if it will do the job on the PC.

Steve...

If you only have a PC you cannot use the QT option... Besides, its highly limited..

You really need to go with the option that Alexandre suggested... There are other options but they can be really expensive...

It is difficult to create good quality video from a PTP/krpano tour.

Perhaps instead of a movie create a PTP autotour and run it from a PC to a big TV/monitor?

Or go and shoot a video.

Or create a video using still images with other software:

Can´t you use an auto-running tour for that purpose? Why a video?

I talked to my client again and he wants to run the video from a USB drive on the TV. The TV will only run AVI files. He had a PowerPoint presentation that he said would be OK to use. I extracted the stills and audio and using Pro Show Producer made up a slide show and outputted to an AVI. I hope it is OK, works on my TV, a little cropped so may need some adjustment.
Incidentally if any one wants to extract audio and images from a PowerPoint file just rename it with a .ZIP extension and open the file with WinZip and all the individual files can be extracted.

Most recent flat screen TVs have a PC (VGA) input.

Thanks for that tip.
