Steve suggested: >>There are some other commercial apps that offer trials or >>limited free versions; One is Video Scout Hi Steve, Thanks! I believe that was the one I found this morning that *almost* seemed to work. (I wasn't able to get the resulting avi file to run on the 1 device I had sitting around for testing this morning. (My Zen MP3 player.) I did manage to change the format from the default to the 'IMA ADPCM' format but I must have had one of the other settings off (or a delta in a setting only available through the 'pro' version of the software) beats me - at any rate I found no joy there.) >>But have you considered using Acrobat 9s Presenter to do this >>Most high end "Toys" can use PDF|Flash, Good point! I have started (a little bit) looking at other solutions. Unfortunately I have a large number of potential content creators who are already familiar with and use PowerPoint. I might be able to squeeze a few bucks for one copy of some software to let me batch convert a bunch of existing files ... but I'm probably not going to get approval to widely deploy a new app and train and support folks on using it. Thanks! RonL.
