[Chimera-users] ppt and movies

I have recorded a movie of a pdb in chimera with the following command:

movie record supersample 3
movie stop
movie encode bitrate 6000 mformat avi output ./pol_b_movie.avi

I can import it into ppt (2004, V 11.3.5)  on my Mac (OS X 10.4.11)  
and it plays fine in the editing mode, but when I go to the slideshow  
and start the movie, there is a blank screen for the duration of the  
movie. When it is done, it shows the standing slide again. Any idea  
what might be going on?
Also, is there a better way to improve the resolution then setting  
the bitrate to 6000, 30 f/s? I have tried the supersample 3 option,  
but this does not seem to make much of a difference in the final movie.

Any input is appreciated.
