Hi and Welcome. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

What version of Power Point is this ?

2010
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Is it 2010 or 2011 ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well crap I just sent away from my computer I thought it was 2010 but it is the newest addition so it might be 2011. I bought it last week. I'll be back in front of the computer in about five minutes and can check.
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
There is no 2010 for Mac, only versions available for Mac are ......2004, 2008 and 2011. You can export the presentation file as a Quicktime Movie (.mov), then import the quicktime movie into iMovie application. In PowerPoint, click on File menu and select "Save As Movie". Adjust all settings there, and save it as Quicktime Movie.

(Refer this article : http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/saving-a-powerpoint-for-mac-presentation-as-a-quic.html)

Then you can import that Quicktime Movie in iMovie from File > Import.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

I tried that but the transitions and narration didn't save with it.
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Lindsay, I'm really sorry for the bad news. That is a known problem or limitation put by Microsoft. It’s not currently possible to retain the sound or animated transitions when saving a presentation as a movie in Office for Mac 2011. The problem is not on your end, but it is a limitation put by Microsoft.

If you want to save it as Movie by retaining everything, there is no direct way. But there is a work around. You can use screen recording options or softwares to record the presentation when it plays on your screen. See here : http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/16/screen-recorder-mac/

For third part app, see here : http://mac.appstorm.net/roundups/utilities-roundups/10-screen-recording-tools-for-mac/

Let me know if you have any questions.

Best Regards,
Ashik

Ok...thank you.


 

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Linday, you can also do the presentation in iPhoto too, so that you can export it directly to iMovie or iDVD (to burn to DVD). Let me know if you want to know about that..

If you are satisfied with my service, please rate me Positively.

I can do the screen recording but now how do I delete the recorded narration.
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Sorry for the delay Linday. Do you want to delete the narration when you record the screen or the narration in Power Point ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I figured it out. Thanks for your help!
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
You're most welcome Lindsay :)

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Don't forget to rate me Positively Lindsay, so that I will get credit for helping you.

Best Regards,
Ashik

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
