Can Open with Keynote ($29 from App Store) and export stills or movie

THanks, Richard.
Is keynote a download from Apple or do I have to order it? I have a quick deadline, you see.

Hi Scott,
I've never worked with PP on FC, but I understand that FC needs some software to be able to read those files.
Natively, FC can't do it; so I would start by installing PP.

Open the PowerPoint Project first. Output stills to .png files - then import into FCP.

May have to make a stop in PhotoShop along the way to tweak.

Actually a $19.95 download if you want to try Richard's Keynote tip.

[Russ Haskell] "Actually a $19.95 download if you want to try Richard's Keynote tip."

To clarify that you purchase it from the Mac App Store, which is only available if you have 10.6.6 installed for your OS.

Microsoft also has a free download of a player for powerpoint, called Producer, you might see if it can also export the slides.

I would export slides as targa or tif myself, rather than .png, to maximize the quality. Though .png files might be smaller.

If you get the full application, try to fix the slides there first before exporting, to save time later in photoshop, etc.

An FYI for the OP, Microsoft Producer for Powerpoint is Windows only. Strangely enough, the overview for it is completely devoid of any useful information (yeah, ok, Bill, it'll create "rich media presentations" ... but what does it do?). That is very unlike Microsoft :-)
