That would be super, and open many options to extend/expand a story’s presentation.
I realize the concerns with file size, but would suggest that with the quality that phone video cameras can produce these days that a smaller size would negate that quality. And with the higher resolution displays that are in use today, that people are becoming used to high quality at larger sizes. Perhaps the option for a premium size and resolution version could be provided/offered (at an extra cost if need be?). If not needed for a particular project, it wouldn’t have to be used.
Bandwidth, storage, and hardware will continue to improve - especially with 5G, so I am one to think ahead and wish to create content that will not look dated soon after production.
As to time per slide - I think 15 secs would provide plenty of time. I think 10 secs might be a sweet spot. But 15 would make it easier to fit that in without worrying about getting a clip to fit - especially one that couldn’t really be cut off.
Thanks for resurrecting this platform. I don’t know if you are aware, but your system is the only one that I have found where I can take many photos taken on location, place them in order, then get on the phone with a professor, tour guide, etc, have him scroll through the sequence while giving narration and record the sound track. Then I can go back and EASILY customize the slide durations to accommodate the recording.
One more thought about the “video as a slide” (and another feature without concern for the technical aspects) is that a lot of videos have sound attached - so pausing any sound track and having the video’s audio play would be a major bonus.
