Another data shows that in January 2008 alone, nearly 79 million users had made over 3 billion video views on YouTube, compared with PowerPoint presentation, video is easier for sharing and delivering. When searching news or information, we disposed to accept the videos because it is very concrete. But when we want to show our opinions we usually make a PowerPoint presentation because it is easier than making a video. Is there any good solution to combine the advantages of PowerPoint and video? Yes, there are 5 ways for you to convert PowerPoint to video!

Part 2, using Windows Movie Maker to create a PowerPoint video.

If you use Windows XP or vista, it’s free and it comes installed on your computer, if you don’t have this program, you can download it from Microsoft.com. If your presentation is created with text and pictures, Windows Movie Maker is the best choice for you. Step 1, save your to PNG or JPG format. Just click the office button, save as, other formats, in the save as type drop-box, select PNG or JPG format.

Part 3, create a PowerPoint video online in sildeshare.net

Slideshare.net http://www.slideshare.net/ is a famous presentation sharing website. You can upload your presentation to this site then start the conversion process, after this, download your video to your computer. This is the easiest way to create a PowerPoint video, but you cannot add animations or sound in your PowerPoint.

Part 4, using Comtasia to record you presentation and create a PowerPoint video

Download Comtasia http://www.techsmith.com and install it on your computer then follow the steps.
Step 1, save your PPT file as PPS file
Step 2, Set Camtasia studio to record the whole screen
Step 3, Play your PowerPoint PPS file and Press "F9" to start recording the screen
Step 4, when you reach your last blank slide, Press F10 to tell Camtasia Recorder to stop
recording. You will be prompted to save the captured slideshow, so choose a directory and enter a filename.
Step 5, save your capture in AVI format

Part 5, Make QuickTime movie on Mac

In PowerPoint, export your presentation as a QuickTime movie "PowerPoint Movie", click file>> make movie. You can save your PowerPoint file to MOV file. The effect of the output is similar with Slideshare. It cannot retain the sounds and animations original in your presentations.
If you are using keynote, just export your presentation to QuickTime file directly.

Advantages and disadvantages:

If you want to retain the dynamic elements, definitely, PPT to Video is your choice. Windows Movie Maker and Slideshare.com can be conceded for those people who want to convert the presentation only include text and images in. Camtasia can record the screen and sound when your play your PowerPoint, but it is pay software and the price is $299.95. For Mac users, you can use the third and fifth method, I don’t know if there are some other programs which can convert PowerPoint to video with animations and sounds.

Internet gives us a convenient platform to share our knowledge worldwide, and video has become more and more pop in the internet. I hope you can use these methods for sharing your presentation easily.
