PowerPoint to DVD?
on Mar 23, 2006 at 7:27:32 pm

Hey, I was going to do this for my mom - she is making a PowerPoint with pictures and other stuff in it for a Girl Scout thing that she will be giving to all the other girls to have. I said that I would put it on a DVD since not everyone has PowerPoint to view a CD on.

The problem: I have no idea how to do this. I have one way, but it's not ideal: Use my video card to export as S-Video, convert to RCA and record on a VHS tape. Then take that VHS and use my capture card to capture as an AVI and burn. But there must be an easier way. Any suggestions?

Powerpoint to DVD
on Mar 25, 2006 at 1:20:39 am

I remember doing this a while back. There is software out there that will convert powerpoint files to mpeg files (I think things like Powerpoint2DVD, PowerVideoMaker, Camtasia), some of which can be downloaded as a trial (Google "convert powerpoint to mpeg"Wink . It usually just records/captures what is on screen when you play the powerpoint. you can then burn the mpeg file to DVD with appropriate software (that converts is to compliant video_ts.vob files). I think I came across a "how-to" article or forum post that outlined several alternatives and their strengths/weaknesses (eg I think most programs have trouble with videos within powerpoint). I ended up using Camtasia Studio which worked fairly well. Hope this helps....

Larry

There is a program that you can burn on your disk that will include the Power Point software. So when you put the disk in it will auto run and and won't need the user to have Power Point or the latest Powerpoint

There are probably easier and more efficient ways but the most direct way I can think of without going to 3rd party sofware is to just save your PP presentation into a JPEG format. Use "File->Save As..." and scroll down the selection list for the JPEG format. PowerPoint will create a new folder and save each slide (named according to its PP slide number) into that folder. In your DVD authoring application you can then import those JPEG bitmap files as assets and make a slide show from there.

well ok now I can say even more
After converting many PowerPoint presentations, I have yet to find an application that combines all the features I want into a package that's priced in a budget that makes sense for most projects. The plug-in solutions generally copy most parts of a PowerPoint slideshow while failing to capture some transitions and completely bypassing any imbedded video, which is what makes screen recording an attractive alternative. For the best in class for the plug-in solutions, the Presentations to Video Converter app does the best job I've seen for a fairly pricey $199. One advantage to this app is the ability to convert PPT slideshows with or without PowerPoint installed on the converting PC.
And also there is feature to burn PowerPoint presentation to DVD, which is fery useful now for everyone.

Can I get a trial version somewhere on the internet? The features are intresting but I'd prefer to give it a try before purchasing the software.
