PREZI NEXT EXAMPLE

As you can see from this example, there are some fundamental differences between Prezi Classic and Prezi Next:
 

  1. To start making a presentation in Prezi Next, you first have to have a fairly clear idea of what you want to present before you can even begin designing anything. Also, you have to choose a template to begin, vs. with Prezi Classic you can start with a blank canvas.
     

  2. In Prezi Next, the idea of sections and subsections is core to its functionality. To navigate from one top level section to a sub-section of a sub-section, for example, the way to do this is to explore using your mouse roller or trackpad, or by clicking on the hierarchy frames that appear as you drill down on the left side of the screen. With Prezi Classic, you can see all the objects on the canvas at once, even though they might be so tiny they are but a pixel. The benefit of this is clear, however, in Prezi Next you have a cleaner looking overview which is a real big improvement over Prezi Classic.
     

  3. In Prezi Next, you are somewhat limited in changing to custom fonts, colors, stylesheets and all the design details that you have control over in Prezi Classic. While there may be some workarounds developed over time, Prezi Next is a presentation design platform that seems to be designed to have you spend more time on the structuring, ordering, and content of your presentation than on making design decisions.

PREZI CLASSIC EXAMPLE

BUT WHY?

We can only speculate, but we think that the executives and investors of Prezi took onboard the feedback they have been receiving for years about how Prezi was too complicated to quickly put presentations together, put people in a situation where they were slowed down in creating their presentation by the abundance of options to choose from, and because people's mindset of presentations is still about slides and ordering those slides.

 

We think the Prezi Next approach to creating presentations is a good one and will only improve over time with customer feedback. 

OUR APPROACH TO CONVERSATIONAL PRESENTATIONS

Prezi Next is a great option for your presentation as it does lend itself to conversational presenting more than PowerPoint, in that you can zoom to different sections with greater ease than PowerPoint as well as provide your audience with a better sense of the purpose of your presentation.​

Prezi Next vs Prezi Classic

This isn't really a fair fight because Prezi Classic is no longer available to new subscribers of Prezi.com. While Prezi Classic is available for legacy subscribers who already have Prezi's saved in their account, and they are able to share those editable Prezi's with new subscribers, the fact remains that as of writing this Prezi Classic is no longer available to new subscribers of Prezi.com.

 

THE GOOD NEWS

The good news is that your older Prezi's as still available to edit and present with - and the better news is that they are automatically presenting through the smooth HTML5 browser player which is far better than the Flash player, which we know is on a long path towards being non-supported. Prezi Next is easier to create presentations and edit presentations where you have a clear idea of what you want to present, along with some analytics tools to help you know more about what presentations people may be looking at on their own. You can also see which slides or frames people are spending more time on viewing - if that's important to you. Also, there's no more spinning options so the biggest gripe with Prezi about making people seasick by watching all the spinning and zooming is now not an option.

 

THE BAD NEWS

There is a lot less freedom of design in PreziNext - which arguably could be a good thing, if the point of your presentation is to have a conversation instead of wow your audience with a cool new design that looks like nothing they have ever seen. Also, the ideation ability that a free and open canvas gave you to first visualize your ideas in a mind-map, only to then refine your ideas into sections in a certain order - is gone from Prezi. All that ideation and content structure forming needs to happen outside of Prezi.
