Why am I not able to adjust the transition timings when using autoplay? This is such a drawback to an otherwise great bit of software. I'm afraid, until this is introduced we will have to go back to good old powerpoint..

Hi Sam,

please have a look at http://prezi.com/learn/auto-play-prezi/. It explains how to modify the auto-play interval.

Note: there are a few camera speed settings for autoplay, but all of these relate to the entire prezi. There is no feature right now which woud allow customizing different camera speeds within an auto played prezi.

I had already looked at this but it does not appear to work. I followed the steps but when I autoplay my prezi, each interval last only 4 seconds and not the 20 seconds I selected.

This doesn't work...the clock isn't there. I tried the presentation setting in the "edit" mode and outside of it

Zoli, as per my previous reply to Cathryne, the interval settings do not appear to work on my Prezi. Do you have any idea why this would be the case as setting the speed setting for an entire Prezi would be a good short term solution whilst Prezi add an option to set timings per path *hint hint..

Very strange, can you share the URL of the prezi?

Hm, I can't see any obvious problem in your prezi. Only th video in the coffee cup is not loading. Please try creating a new prezi and successively copy+pasting content over to it. Check and backup in between to see which item in your prezi might cause the problem. The video seems the most likely culprit, just a gut feeling, though.

Hi Katrin,
Following the instruction here http://prezi.com/learn/auto-play-prezi/, I can control 4, 10 or 20 seconds for two modes: offline Prezi and online in Edit/Show mode. However, could you tell me how to control speed of Auto play for Prezi on viewer mode. Viewers just click on a link and go to Prezi, they can't access edit mode and of course they can't access Edit/Show mode.
Many thanks.

For a prezi published on prezi.com there is an auto-play option also: in the "More" menu item right below the prezi.

I meant how to adjust the speed of Autoplay on Prezi.com. I can't hold the Play button or anywhere else to show speed option. Do you have any solution for this?

No, sorry. For embedded prezis only one speed is available. We hope to find the time to improve this in the future, but I can't promise anything.

Thanks Karin, so it's the same as questions about embedded Prezis now.

Hope to see some good changes in the near future. Ah, Prezi has really good support specialists and you're one of them. Thanks.

Hi All,

I'd like to announce the release of PreziFly, a free software tool for auto-playing online or downloaded Prezis. Using its graphical interface, you record custom slide times as you advance through your Prezi. Then PreziFly will build an executable player file to play your Prezi automatically. PreziFly can also play an audio track of background music or narration or both, bridging the transitions between path stops and providing a smoother experience.

You can distribute the player file and audio track to users or use the player file to auto-play and auto-loop your Prezi at trade shows or conventions. Full support for pause and resume is provided.

PreziFly works on Windows PCs or in Windows partitions on Macs. It is easy and convenient, and it's free. See http://www.myreckonings.com/prezi for more details and to download the software. You can also download demo player files for online and downloaded versions of a new Prezi describing PreziFly at

http://prezi.com/8vvkz5o9ykp_/

The combination of PreziFly and Prezi’s new theme, font, and color facelift moves the entire system into a compelling presentation vehicle for both “podium” and “web” presentations, both delivered in person and unattended. This functionality makes Prezi a platform with appeal to the corporate world. It is a full-up method to produce exciting presentations in a variety of venues.

Cheers,

Hi All,

I'd like to announce the release of PreziFly version 1. 2. PreziFly is a free software tool for auto-playing online or downloaded Prezis. Among other new features, this release is required to work with the latest changes to the Prezi button layout.

Using the PreziFly graphical interface, you record and edit custom slide times in milliseconds as you advance through your Prezi. Then PreziFly will build an executable player file to play your Prezi automatically. PreziFly can also play an audio track of background music or narration or both, bridging the transitions between path stops and providing a seamless experience.

You can distribute the player file and audio track to users or use the player file to auto-play and auto-loop your Prezi at trade shows or conventions. Full support for pause and resume is provided.

See http://www.myreckonings.com/prezi for more details and to download the software. There are also new video tutorials there on using PreziFly.

Cheers,
