Zooming not smooth in Prezi Video


Noticed that when i import a prezi into prezi video, after i start presenting zooming is not smooth (like in prezi present or next), like there is a very low frame rate.
Any suggestions?

Hello @Jesse_van_Akkeren, could you please send us a screen recording of the issue and let me know if you are using Windows or Mac?

Are you using Prezi Video desktop app or the browser version?

Hi Bart,

I’m using Prezi Video Desktop, on a Mac.
Where do you want me to send a screenrecording?

Hello @Jesse_van_Akkeren, if you could paste the screen recording here, that would be fine. Could you also tell me which MacOS you are running on and the release year of your Mac?

Hi @Bart ,

MacBook Pro (16 inch, 2021) (Silicon-processor), bought in 2022, macOS Monterey 12.6.
Unfortunately the screen recording seems to have a low frame rate so it isn’t smooth in Next as well.
I could mail a link to a prezi to you so you can compare?

Alternative: You could load a prezi of your own in Prezi Present or Next and Compare the Smoothness to Prezi Video…I Just tried with a simple template and Prezi Next zooms and pans smooth, Prezi Video is flickering, as if the framerate is much lower.

@Bart, Yet another solution:

I just made a video with a GoPro at 240 frames per second.
I’ll send you that one via mail/wetransfer.
Have edited this one but at 120 fps (video-editing software didn’t accept 240). You can still see the difference. The second part of that edited video is slowed down to 25% to make it even more clear how many frames from Next seem to have been “dropped”.

Hello @Jesse_van_Akkeren, thanks for the flawless cooperation. You can send me a wetransfer link via a PM that you can reach by clicking on my username and pushing the message button.

Done (pm sent)

Hello @Jesse_van_Akkeren, we have checked on this with our developers.

Please note that Prezi Video is limited to 30 FPS, while Prezi Next can produce more FPS if your system allows it.

I have forwarded your feedback though to our developers.

Thanks, 30 fps imo is too low for presentations with movement and zooming, particularly when presenting on a big screen.
