i am using publish to video from storyline 360. The video output quality is good but the audio quality get worsen with lots of hissing sound. I already maintain 100% output best video output setting during publishing output. Is there any bug in Storyline 360 video output quality, where the audio quality is remain a concerned.

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for the follow-up. After some further troubleshooting, I was able to improve the quality using the following steps:

  1. Changed publish output to Articulate 360 to test if audio quality also reduced there. I then noticed in Properties>Quality settings the audio bitrate was set to 16kpbs. Changed to 128kpbs.
  2. Published to Articulate 360. Audio fine.
  3. Changed publish output back to Video>Audio Quality = Very High and audio quality was improved in final render.

My conclusion: The audio quality in the Video publish is dependent on the audio quality properties setting from the other publish options (360, Web, LMS)?
