Default Way to Save PPT as Video within PowerPoint
Microsoft PowerPoint software is very versatile and has multiple features you can use to enhance your presentations. While creating PowerPoint presentations with images, picture and music is well commonly known, very few people are able to save their presentations as videos. Actually, the procedure to save PPT as video is quite simple:
Open PowerPoint and create a presentation. After creating the document, the next step is to save it as a video. Press ‘File’ on the upper left corner of the open document. Click on ‘Export’ and then ‘Create a video’.
The ‘Create a video’ option will bring two drop down boxes and a time value box. In the 1st drop down box, you can choose the quality of video you want. While the second drop down box is used to edit narrations or timings on the presentation. You can choose to include or exclude these narrations or timings with this option. This option is only available in presentations with timings and narrations.
The time value box allows you to edit the amount of time each slide will last in the video. The default time is normally 5 seconds.
Click on the ‘Create Video’ button. Under the save dialogue box, choose the file destination and click ‘Save’. Wait until the progress bar is done creating the video before you can view it.
PowerPoint presentation is still the preferred method of making proposals or passing knowledge to an audience. The conversion of a PPT presentation to a video enables the presentation to be viewed anywhere. If you want to record PowerPoint with audio and other effects, it’s better to get a PowerPoint recorder like Screen Grabber Pro. If you simply need to turn it to a video for sharing online, you can just use the default way to convert PPT to video.
