Techie Tip of the Week: Saving a PowerPoint Presentation as a Movie

Macintosh users have been able to convert PowerPoint Presentations to a movie format for years. But until Office 2010, on the Windows side, if you wanted to convert a PowerPoint into a movie, you had to install 3rd party software like Captivate, Jing, or Camtasia. With the advent of PowerPoint 2010, however, Windows users can now save their PowerPoint files into the WMV movie format, which can be then uploaded to YouTube or other video hosting services.

To save your PowerPoint into a movie format:

  • PowerPoint 2010 (Windows) — WMV file format
    1. Create your PowerPoint Presentation.
    2. Click the File button, and then click Save & Send.
    3. In the File Types section, click Create a Video. Select the desired options, and then click Create Video.
    4. In the File name field, enter the name of the presentation/video.
    5. Click Save. Your presentation is now a WMV movie!
  • PowerPoint 2004/2008/2011 (Macintosh) — MOV file format
    1. Create your PowerPoint Presentation.
    2. On the File menu, click Make Movie.
    3. In the Save As box, enter the name of the presentation/video.
    4. Click Save. Your presentation is now a MOV movie!
