When you want to give a high-fidelity version of your presentation to colleagues or customers (either as an e-mail attachment, published to the web, on a CD or DVD), save it and let it play as a video.
In PowerPoint 2010, you can now save your presentation as a Windows Media Video (.wmv) file, and distribute it confidently, knowing that your animated, narrated, multimedia presentation will play without a glitch. If you do not want to use the .wmv file format, you can use a preferred third party utility to convert your file to another format (.avi.mov, etc).
Some tips to remember when recording your presentation as a video:
You can record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements in your video.
You can control the size of the multimedia file and the quality of your video.
You can include animations and transitions in your movie.
Viewers do not need to have PowerPoint installed on their computers to watch it.
If your presentation contains an embedded video, the video will play correctly without your needing to control it.
Depending on the content of your presentation, creating a video may take some time. Lengthy presentations and presentations with animations, transitions, and media content will likely take longer to create. Fortunately, you can continue to use PowerPoint while the video is being created
Record and time voice narration and pointer movements
Note: To record and playback a narration, your computer must be equipped with a sound card, microphone, and speakers.
Good presentations include concise slide content which is supported and reinforced by a presenter's gestures and discussion. When creating a video version of a presentation, you'll probably want to “capture” the human element of the presentation by recording and timing voice narration and even laser pointer gestures.
You can record your slide show prior to sharing it with your audience, or you can record a narration while actively delivering a presentation to a live audience and include their comments and questions in the recording.
For procedures on how to record and time narration in a slide show, see Add narration to a presentation. And, for procedures on how to use the laser pointer, see Turn your mouse into a laser pointer.
