How to Convert a PowerPoint Presentation into Video

PowerPoint is the most widely used tool for designing presentations, but one huge thumbs down of PowerPoint is it’s compatibility issue. Your presentation can only be presented on a PC with PowerPoint installed. You may not find many PowerPoint users dime a dozen because of its hefty price tag. However, if you convert PowerPoint to movie, things may be different, because converting PPT to movie means no constraints on the compatibility.

You can also share your presentation on social networking sites for maximum publicity and exposure.

1. Convert PowerPoint to Video in Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker comes by default with Windows O.S. It is completely free and doesn’t require you to spend a penny

Step 1: Open Microsoft PowerPoint. Go to File -> Save As. On the “Save as type” option, choose any image format you wish. There are 6 image formats you can choose from: … * Gif, * jpg, * png, * tif, * bmp. However, JPG and PNG formats are the most recommended because of their small size and quality retention.

Step 2: Click “Save” and a dialog box will appear, Choose “Every Slide” option. A few seconds later, a window should appear “Each slide in your presentation has been saved as a separate file in the folder: ***”. Open the folder, you can find all the exported images here.

Step 3: Run Windows Movie Maker, import all the photos you have exported and add them to Storyboard.

Step 4: Add music files, video effects, animations and transitions you like in the Storyboard

Step 5: Export the storyline into a video format. Preferably the local playback for maximum quality. .

One major drawback of this process is, the original transitions from the presentation file will be lost and you will need to configure transitions through Movie maker, this might take a couple of minutes

PowerPoint Sharing Websites

SlideOnline is an intuitive platform for sharing PowerPoint Presentation online. This site allows you to share your PowerPoint presentation through blogs, websites, YouTube and even iPod. I

After uploading your presentation on the site, the presentation will be converted into a Flash Video/File. An email will be sent to you as soon as your PowerPoint video has been processed. However, this process may take some time depending on the size of the PPT file. Alternatively, you can choose SlideShare or Authorstream.

If you are using PowerPoint 2013

PowerPoint 2013 has an intuitive feature. It lets you export the presentation into a video format directly without any external plug-in hassle.

Click File – Export Tab. Choose ‘Create a video’ and select your desired format (.WMV or .MP4) from the dropdown and click OK..

For a much quicker conversion, you can use a video converter or screen cast.
