  • Powerpoint into edius

    Is there anyway of getting a powerpoint presentation into edius?

    I've tried screen capture, but it's not exactly smooth.

    no need for screencapture

    you can export pp to tif or bmp by using save as

    don't use jpg

      But that only gives me still slides of the end, none of the inserting of text/pictures that happen in the indiviual slides of the slideshow.

        Maybe camtasia, not sure about resolution, but give it a try, play in PP and capture.

            the only way to get a smooth product is by doing what I said and create any animations in Edius, I also apply 90x1 motion blur in Photoshop prior to use in Edius, removes all jitter of thin lines

            also, if a slide consists of several stages, you may export each stage as a unique bmp manually, time consuming

                Twinpact 100 and Pegasus are great for doing this...but I'm imagining that you have neither the time nor resources to use one of these..

                  I'm supplying a couple of dozen cd's with the powerpoint presentation on, along with the added extra info required. Play only on pc, but cheap!!

                  Thanks,

                    Do a google searech for 'PPTToVideo'...neat little package, and it works well..at lease for what I had to do...it is not free, but the trial worked for what I was doing.....There is another application " PPTmovie" .

                      Same as other ones I'd found, watermark and to be honest, the screen capture was probably as good in quality, this one wasn't good. Mind you, I was using my lowly office pc which has PPT on, and not my video editing model.

                      Anyway, CD made and burned now, so nobody else needs to worry, thanks.

                        And there is a fabulous package out of Canada called Power Videomaker Professional that simply converts PPT files to AVI, Mpeg of WMV and it can do it in HD if you need. You can even control the timing and it's NOT a screen grab.

                          How large are the power point slides?

                          If you have a power point that is larger than 720x480 then any conversion is going to drop the quality quite a bit.

                            For DV I used to just play back on a laptop and capture the S-video and any audio out to a storm, only problem is if the PPT has too small text as it doesn't show up too good in video, this happens with most PwrPoint to video captures no matter what is used.

                            I'm supplying a couple of dozen cd's with the powerpoint presentation on
                            I didn't notice the part about video cds till after I posted the above, a video CD is half the frame resolution of DV plus compression, you might be better off just to take computer video out into a settop DVD recorder and make computer dups of the DVD in Nero or something.

                              Basically i do a lot of dvd production for this guy.
                              He's running a charity match and wanted some promotional material supplied by sponsors to give to the participants.
                              This promo material was a PPT
                              He wanted some other info added to this.
                              He didn't want to pay :)
                              I didn't want to spend days on it :)

                              As all I do is produce dvds for him, he asked for a dvd.

                              It was far easier in the end, to add his new material to the PPT presentation and make a new one and duplicate this 24 times, supplying him with a PPT on cd - packaged so it'll just play onany pc.

                              Anyway, job is done, so I don't need any more info, but thanks for all the ideas, I'll follow up on the last link, in case I have to do this again.
