PowerPoint into FCP
on Oct 9, 2009 at 11:17:15 am

I have a clients presentation that has moving transitions that I want to capture into FCP 7. I know how to get still images from ppt to fcp but am struggling trying to record animated transitions in the ppt file that also has other flying in "bits" of the slide. Anyone else come across this?

Thanks

Hi Tim,
Microsoft Power Point have an "Export QT Movie" function.

You could try iUshowu and screen capture. Usually Powerpoint slides have to be rebuilt for Video standards.

Another thought is to use a screen capture program like ScreenFlow.

Just remembered this link http://www.dvd-ppt-slideshow.com/. It's another possibility, and they have a free trail version.

Thanks for your reply John

I found this one already and it seems to work OK although the ppt seems a bit soft. We are working in PAL

When ever I have had to do the same thing, I will bring the PPT file into Apples Keynote as it handles these things MUCH better then Power point.

In Keynote you change the slideshows aspect ratio to the proper video aspect ratio and export a video file of the presentation.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

I finally bought PowerPoint for my MAC.
KeyNote is much better but most of my clients use PowerPoint
and want all of their funky transitions and builds like they
built them in PP.
So I use SnapZ Pro to capture the screen playback from PP.

It works great and all I have to do is bring the file into
Final Cut - add audio and can then export the file
into whatever.
