Okay.... .... i have a .mov movie that is encoded in H.264, 1139 x 769, millions...with a data rate of 9.22mbits/sec. i need it to play on a WINDOWS machine using powerpoint. (what a drag) i just bought quicktime pro, which allows me to export as an .avi, and the file seems to playback through windows media player... but the quality is horrible. how do i maintain the quality of the video in powerpoint? right now, i am trying an export image sequence as png's, and then i'll try using windows movie maker to put it back together again....? need this done in two hours... r.
