CD ROM as business card

I know there was a thread about this a long time ago, and though I tried, I couldn't find it. I'm again thinking about putting together a CD-ROM version of a business card to give to potential clients. While EasyPhoto seemed the way to go for stills, I want to up the ante a bit.

I just bought a camcorder and have been filming my guys performing various tasks, with the idea of somehow dubbing the video with narration, and including clips in this CD ROM.

Does anyone have experience with transferring this stuff to Mpeg or Avi and then putting it into some form like this? Is there a good software package for that purpose?

I know all about these issues. I even have the software to make self-extracting presentations in any win 9x computer.

But since you have treated me like an arrogant jerk in the past
and you don't fell I contribute anything to this forum I will keep my information to myself.

And BTW have a nice day.

Stonehenge,

Our business card is on a CD. Currently we do not have any video
on it. However, we have self extracting slide shows set up of diffrent elements. IE: steps, raised patios, paver quilting, retaining walls ect. The WOW factor is pretty good for new prospects.

We did a job for a guy who does this for a living. He works for an advertising agency. He wants to help us take it to the next level. Video and the like.

If you like, I can send you one of my CDs in the mail.

Rex

I'd love it.

Tell me what the postage would be, and I'll pay for it.

Thanks!
