Converting a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to a video is not a difficult task. Because it can be used by many users and provides dozens of third-party software, Now Microsoft has added a feature in PowerPoint 2010 that presentations can be saved as a WMV (Windows Media Video) file. The video also includes all the accessories included in the presentation, including animations and audio. If a video is included in the presentation, it is also included in the WMV (Windows Media Video).
To convert a presentation into a video using PowerPoint 2010, click Save & Send from the File menu and then select Create a video from the options that open on the right. You will be presented with various options regarding video, including video quality, size, etc. Choose the options you need. This choice of options will directly affect the video file size. PowerPoint currently only supports WMV (Windows Media Video) format. However, this is not a problem as it is not very difficult to convert the file from this format to other video formats and software is widely available for this.
If you don’t have PowerPoint 2010 available, then third-party software will help you in this regard. You will need third-party software for this.
