Getting PowerPoint Content Into Flash
This tutorial will show you one way to move content from an existing PowerPoint
presentation to a Flash project. You might want to add more sophisticated animation
and interactivity to your presentation than PowerPoint offers, or you might
want to make your presentation more "web-friendly." This tutorial
will help you to move your existing PowerPoint slides--so you can save time
by not having to recreate your presentation from scratch in Flash. This method
works best for presentations with a lot of slides and a lot of text that you
don't want to retype and reformat in Flash.
This tutorial was created using PowerPoint 2000 and Flash 5.
