Outputting a presentation to video is one of the most amazing features in the up-coming MS PowerPoint 2010. And it is easy to do that. I will show you the exact practice with PowerPoint 2010 beta.

1. Go to your PowerPoint 2010 presentation. Click File > Share > Create a Video (under File Types).

2. Customize the video settings as necessary. For example, select a proper video resolution according to your terminal device, choose to or not to use recorded narration and timing, etc. Then click the Create Video icon.

3. A Save As interface appears. You should see file extension of the original PowerPoint presentation has changed from *.pptx to *. wmv. Click Save.

4. A green process bar is displayed below the current slide to show you a real-time conversion of your PowerPoint presentation.

5. When finished, you can find the PowerPoint-made video in the pre-set location.

However, every coin has two sides. Though with nearly-perfect new features, PowerPoint 2010 has a long way to go.

Limitations of Converting to Video Feature in PowerPoint 2010:

  • I. Only supports one video output format – WMV. Cannot create other video formats like MP4, FLV, AVI, etc.
  • II. The maximum size for output video is limited to 960*720. HD WMV file sizes such as 1280*720, 1440*1080 and 1920*1080 are NOT available.

So what is necessary if you want to turn a PowerPoint 2010 presentation to WMV of higher quality or to convert it to other video file formats like MPEG and AVI? A dedicated third-party software tool like PPT to Video Converter.

Moyea PPT to Video Converter enables you to

  • Convert PowerPoint 2010 presentation to 100+ video file formats, including ASF, AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, 3GP, 3G2, VOB, TS, DV, WMV, RMVB, etc.
  • Select HD video sizes like 1280*720, 1440*1080 and 1920*1080
  • Customize video parameters with Profile feature to make it best

And by converting PowerPoint 2010 presentation to video with such PPT to Video converter, you benefit a million:

  • - You can watch your video presentation on any computer, even a Mac, without PowerPoint.
  • - You don’t need to worry about dynamic components, e.g., animations, transitions, sounds, narrations, movie clips, flash, embedded in PowerPoint. They can be retained in output video.
