Unfortunately, the Flash authoring software I use doesn’t give me any payback for reducing resolution. When, for example, you scale the video down to 1024 by 768, the file size remains the same and you lose clarity of text and interface in exchange for nice anti-aliasing. So I can’t see how anybody wins. I think, for now, scaling within the browser will do the same thing. I’ll consider saving to DIVX or something for smaller versions.
I could put in a series of interactive buttons, but there is a master button at the bottom that has a pause, just click if it goes too fast, or if you want to read long texts. Normally, in my video sessions I have no text at all, but since this is an introductory lesson and it assumes unfamiliarity with the Blender conventions, I decided to annotate heavily. Future sessions will not contain much in the way of text. This assumes that those watching have started at the beginning, and are, therefore familiar with the shortcuts that have been demonstrated in earlier lessons.
