You want to share your presentation with colleagues in other locations -- by publishing it on the Web, or sending it via email or on disc. But worried that what they see won't look the way you want it to.

Relax! You can ensure that your slide presentation displays the way you intended it (even if some of your colleagues don't have PowerPoint installed) by turning your presentation into a video.

Here are the steps:

  1. Create your presentation.
  2. (Optional) Record and add narration and timings to a slide show and Turn your mouse into a laser pointer.
  3. Save the presentation.
  4. On the File menu, click Save & Send.
  5. Under Save & Send, click Create a video.
  6. To display all video quality and size options, under Create a video, click the Computer & HD Displays down arrow.
  7. Do one of the following:
    • To create a video with very high quality, yet a large file size, click Computer & HD Displays.
    • To create a video with a moderate file size and medium quality, click Internet & DVD.
    • To create a video with the smallest file size, yet low quality, click Portable Devices.

      Tip
      You'll want to test these out to see which option meets your needs.
  8. Click the Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narrations down arrow and then, do one of the following:
    • If you did not record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements , click Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narration.

      Tip The default time spent on each slide is set to 5 seconds. To change that, to the right of Seconds to spend on each slide, click the up arrow to increase, or the down arrow to decrease the seconds.

    • If you recorded and timed narration and pointer movements , click Use Recorded Timings and Narrations.
  9. Click Create Video.
  10. In the File name box, enter a file name for the video, browse for folder that will contain this file, and then click Save. You can track the progress of the video creation by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your screen. The video creation process can take up to several hours depending on the length of the video and the complexity of the presentation.

    Tip For longer videos, you can set it up so that they create overnight. That way, they'll be ready for you the following morning.

  11. To play your newly-created video, go to the designated folder location, and then double-click the file.
