Publish a video - Video is flickering or in bad quality
Apr 01, 2020
I wanted to publish a video for an app instruction.
Therefore, I recorded all necessary content on an iPad (screen recording) in an MP4 format. I inserted the movie into Storyline 360 as well as a separate audio file and aligned the audio file (movie file was not edited within storyline) to the movie-file.
Afterwards, I published as a 'video' and used the suggested Dimensions and selected the video quality to be 'very high'. The quality of the movie which was created was very poor. It was very blurry!
After some research on these forums, I created a new project and imported the movie-file again but changed the 'Compression' to 'None' in the Video Options (before it was set to Automatic). Again, I aligned the audio file and published the as video with the same settings as the previous one.
This the time, the published video was sharp (good quality) but it was flickering – meaning it jumps back and forth (like a DJ does with the disks) – instead of a steady flow. The movie-file I inserted has 43 fps, whereas Storyline convert everything to 30fps when publishing.
Is there a chance to either increase the quality of the video (when Compression 'Automatic' is selected) to have a 'sharp' result or a way to adapt the FPS when importing the video in order to avoid the flickering? If you have any other suggestion to solve this issue, I am happy to hear them.
