Hints & Tips

Linking to external files or URLs
Talking Slide supports HTML tags in the description text area, enabling you to include a Website or an external file in your slide show. For example, use the following HTML code in the description text box to insert Web content in your slide show:

<iframe id=IFrame0 frameborder=1 scrolling=Yes style='height:340; width:480;' src='http://www.reallusion.com/'><iframe>

The SRC variable can be linked to a URL, or a MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint file, or an Adobe PDF file. You can also link to a particular heading in your document by using this code:

SRC='file://test.doc#heading'

Reducing file size
Before uploading your presentation to a Website, you can reduce the file size for faster uploads. To reduce file size, do the following:

  • Select a small size for the template.
  • When using custom templates, do not select an image file for the background. Instead, select color as the background.
  • While exporting HTML, set the sound quality to low and reduce the image quality as much as possible.

Modifying templates
For advanced use, you can modify the templates as required. The template files are easily available from the C:\Program Files\reallusion\TalkingSlide\Template folder. To modify the elements of each template, do the following:

  1. To change the template background, replace the 1-01.jpg file with your own.
  2. To change the control buttons, replace Play.jpg, stop.jpg, next.jpg and back.jpg files with your own.
  3. To change the fonts, click Ctrl+Shift+E to edit the Style Sheet for description, heading, and subtopic text.
  4. To change the layout, open the template.htm file using Macromedia Dreamweaver or a similar HTML editor.
    1. Drag the components such as MainTopicLayer, SubTopicLayer and so on to change the layout of the file as desired.
    2. To change the Talking Head, media and list areas, edit the source code of the file. The variables included in xxxLayer(62, 55, 163, 163, %_LC); define the top, left, width and height of the respective layer (where xxx stands for the layer name). Change the values to re-position and re-size the Talking Head.

About multi-media files
Real Media files:
If you have imported .rm files in your slide show, visitors to your Website will not be able to view your embedded TalkingSlide slide show if they do not have Real Media Player installed on their system. For this reason, it is recommended that you add the following message to your Web content: "This page created with real video. You need to install Real Media player first. Download Real Media Player here."

Windows Media files:
If you have imported .wmv files in your slide show, visitors to your Website will not be able to view your embedded TalkingSlide slide show if they do not have Windows Media Player installed on their system. For this reason, it is recommended that you add the following message to your Web content: "This page created with Windows media. You need to install Windows Media player first. Download Windows Media Player here."

Macromedia Flash files:
If you have imported .swf files in your slide show, visitors to your Website will not be able to view your embedded TalkingSlide slide show if they do not have Macromedia Flash Player installed on their system. For this reason, it is recommended that you add the following message to your Web content: "This page created with Macromedia Flash. You need to install Macromedia Flash player first. Download Macromedia Flash Player here."
