Exporting PowerPoint to a Video

Exporting PowerPoint to a Video

**Please note – to export to a video format, make sure you have created automatic transitions between your slides.
  1. Select the transitions tab.
  2. Select the first slide you would like to set the transition time for. In this instance, I knew my audio was 3 seconds in length, so I selected for this slide to be 5 seconds. This allows time for the slide to appear and the audio to start playing. Make sure that you uncheck “on mouse click.”
  3. You will need to do this with each slide to ensure your video runs on your desired time length.

  1. Another option is to “Rehearse Timings.” This allows you to listen to your audio and advance the slides as you want. When the slideshow is completed, PowerPoint will automatically generate your slide transition times.

  1. Make sure you save your PowerPoint file before exporting to a video. Select file and save, or save as if you do not have a copy already created.
  2. To export, select File, and then For Office 2013, select “Export” – For Office 2010, select “Save & Send”.

Office 2013

Office 2010

  1. Select “Create a Video”. You will want either, “Computer & HD Displays” or “Internet & DVD”. Both formats will work for a traditional monitor. If you are planning to use the video on a projection system, you need to save it in the “Computer & HD Displays” format for the best quality.
  2. If you have audio included with your PowerPoint, your default will be to use my recorded timings and narrations. You have the option of saving the PowerPoint as a video without using your recordings if you choose to do so.

  1. Once converted, your video can be used directly in the classroom and/or loaded into a video library like YouTube.
