What people around the world eat weekly, and the price

I thought this info was a good candidate for a quick slide show.

Tech notes:

CorelDRAW and Photo-Paint were used for the basic slide preparation. I wrote the music, and generated a midi file from my chord changes using Band in a Box. Then I edited that MIDI file in Cubase SX. From there I generated a stereo WAV file.

While there are some programs that generate Flash FLV files, their file size remains large since the codec doesn’t appear to discern between unchanged frames. Also, you usually need several files to set up FLV’s to play. this is the technology behind YouTube.

I used another program that generated a single and relatively simple SWF file from single images. There are still transitions at least. With stereo audio, the entire production comes to only 1.6 MB for a minute long show. I like that kind of efficiency.
