Multimedia Authoring - Quicktime Dead?

Tom:

I have done some experimentation with Keynote, the latest version.  It does
just about everything I need, but the slide "effects" need a high frame rate
to play nicely in QuickTime, so that would rule out anything but a very
small web demo, unless I am missing something important.  Or, alternately,
you could just eliminate the effects altogether.  I'm still baffled by the
way it handles its QuickTime export.  Would you recommend bringing captured
video into Keynote uncompressed and using Keynote to compress it, or the
reverse? I'm going for the highest quality, largest size that would be
practical for the web.

Thanks,

Greg Smith
