Yes, it’s the next big thing, and hordes of people want to do create a DVD from their PowerPoint slides. And since we live in a world where people want to do the in-thing, everyone else wants to burn a DVD of their PowerPoint slides. But why? Ask them about the advantages of doing so, and many are confused. They might answer that there must be advantages using this approach since so many others want to create DVDs from their PowerPoint slides! And of course, we will look at these advantages of this approach.

We will also look at some disadvantages. So are we asking you to abandon the very idea of creating a shining DVD disc from your PowerPoint presentation that you can play on your TV via the DVD player? Not really. So why are we putting up a layer of skepticism right at the beginning of this article? Well, actually this is not skepticism for the idea, it’s more related to not being aware of how to do it, and of learning, if better solutions exist for you.

Exporting a PowerPoint presentation as a video (movie) clip is a feature that was only available to PowerPoint:mac users. And although newer versions of PowerPoint on Mac no longer have this feature, you can still get it to work if you have a copy of PowerPoint 2004 installed.

1. Fine Tune the Presentation

Choose Slide Show | Slide Transition and select an automatic timing in seconds to advance the slides. I chose 10 seconds, and a Fade Smoothly transition option and set it for all slides in the presentation by clicking the Apply to All button.

Learn how you can create videos (movie clips) from your PowerPoint slides using Windows Movie Maker.

Note: This post was first written in 2007. Since the content of this post is still applicable to newer versions of PowerPoint, we have slightly edited the post to make it relevant.


Many people use PowerPoint as a video editor, and use the export options in PowerPoint to create video clips. If you use the newer versions of PowerPoint, the output quality can be amazing, but when you upload these video clips to a site such as YouTube or Vimeo, then the quality can get degraded. Why? That’s because these sites compress your video clips, that can lead to the reduction in the video quality. But did you know that there’s so much you can do even before you export the video clips, right inside PowerPoint to make the degrading effects of this compression minimal? In this post, we will look at some ideas that will help you.
