I’ve been playing around with LR4’s slideshow module the last couple of days. While it’s still not terribly sophisticated (in my opinion), it does seem to be a whole lot better than it used to be. One of the things that seems to work better is transforming a created slideshow into video format (mp4). You can select a number of different resolutions, depending on what you intend to do with it once it’s created. The video embedded here is in 720p, which made this 4 minute slideshow something like 55 MB.
Let me know if you have any problems with it.
Well, that’s sort of interesting. WordPress, apparently, still wants to “dumb” it down. Even though it started out at a fairly high resolution, it gets changed in the upload process. If you want to switch to a “fullscreen” view while watching, it looks a whole lot fuzzier than it did in its original version.
Same old problem, I guess. Time for some more research……….
OK. I’ve tried the Youtube approach to try and get better resolution.
Yep, that works better. Just switch the resolution at the bottom right and watch it in full screen mode. The detail is much, much better. Hopefully, I won’t be hearing from any of ZZ Top’s lawyers……….
