Microsoft PowerPoint is a very great tool to help make presentations for example public lecture, product introduction or business report conference. Because we can write out thoughts onto different slides and arrange them in specific order, decorate them with dynamic animations and transitions to make them lively. Yes, they are the features we also need when creating a DVD movie or DVD slideshow gift for family or friends.
To convert PowerPoint to video, you can use PowerPoint 2010 (free) or professional PPT to video converter (paid). At the same time, PPT to DVD burner (paid) can help you to burn PowerPoint to DVD and convert PowerPoint to video too. However, if you have a tight budget recently, here we will introduce you two methods to convert PowerPoint to DVD for free.
Tools you need:
1. DVD Flick
DVD Flick is a free software for you to burn video to DVD disc. It has simple intuitive interface but very Powerful DVD editing features. It also support JPG pictures, but other image files like GIF, BMP, PNG cannot be imported to the program.
