Please Advise: How to edit in PowerPoint Builds

Anybody who can help me with this, if you email me or call and we can do a Face Time and solve this problem, I'll give you $50!

I am trying to edit in the PP slides but realize that many of them have builds, yet I only have the completed slide. Does anyone know of how to get the underlying slides?

Many thanks,

Ned

It's been a long time since I've done this, but I seem to remember exporting a movie of the builds.

You can also do a screen recording and manually step through the builds for editing later.

Thanks Jeremy.

OP HERE: After doing a lot of Googling I am learning that I need to Enable Editing or Enable Macros in PP. However, my problem might be that I have a Read Only version of this PP deck, it may be a PVC vs Mac issue, or perhaps because I am on Office 2011? But there is no button anywhere to allow me to see the individual slides for the build. Any ideas?

I'm not 100% sure as it's been a long time. It sounds like you have a presentation and not the original deck.

I thought you'd be able to "play" it with the builds? There is also the problem of Mac vs pc. Do you have Keynote? have you tried opening it there?

Wouldn’t the simplest solution be to contact whoever you got the deck from and ask the, for the editable version?

Yes, I did that, but it goes against my nature to bother a client for something trivial, so at first I try to solve it myself, ask editors I know and lastly post here on CC. It may be that my version of Office being 2011 does not have something that would enable editing, but I don't feel like upgrading just for this.

Others have said it could be a PC/Mac issue and some said that I may have been given a read only version because that appears in the heading: Read Only.

I have asked the client to open all the slides including their builds, save as JPEGs and give me those.

I do this all the time. You can open your PowerPoint in Keynote. Go through all the slides to make sure that they are all formatted correctly, and that all the builds will work. Export your keynote as a QuickTime. I usually will leave a couple seconds between builds to give me room to edit. I also like to use the hold frame function in Final Cut 10 to pause slides when they are on the screen longer.

Thanks but Keynote won't open the builds so I probably do have a Read Only file.

I have been able to open a read only PowerPoint in Keynote. Builds are the animations that are built into the slideshow. some builds are not compatible with Keynote and will have to be re-built.

Thanks everyone. I upgrade my MS Office and so I was able to get at the individual animations. Thanks!
