I make cd-rom presentations all the time. They are fairly simple to do and make a great presentation to prospect customers. I would not use them in replace of business cards (though I have made them on disks the size and shape of business cards) (also you will croke your cd rom before you make to many) There are so many ways to do make them i.e.. different formats and such, that going into it in detail is hard to do here. Also the cost of the programs can get a little outrageous and depending on how much editing you do, the graphics programs are even worse. To start make sure you have a DV camcorder, and digital camera. Basic photo editing software such as MGI photosuite 4 ($50)(www.mgisoft.com), and simple video editing software like Pinnacle Studio DV software ($90 @ Best Buy) or VideoWave 5 ($130) or Cinematic ($90)(both at www.mgisoft.com) to start (I use all 3 plus about 6 others). This will allow you some flexibility and will offer you some options. You could also do this with just the DV camcorder and Pinnacle software, but adding pics and slide shows is more difficult. Also a program like Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 or home studio ($130-$600 @ www.cakewalk.com) will help you add some great audio mixes to your work. And once you have a master, something like clone disk ($? www.?), or Nero burn ($30-$90 @ www.nerorom.com or free) will help you mass produce. I can help you allot if you need it and show you were you can get allot! of stuff for free on the net, so feel free to email me if you decide that this is for you and I will help you through the process. Good Luck.
