PPT to Video file - Wondershare Software...

PowerPoint presentations do a great job of presenting complex information to audiences, but they take a lot of time and effort to create yet tend to have a limited lifespan, typically the duration of a project. Wondershare's PPT2Video Pro can help you maximize the usefulness of your PowerPoint presentations by converting them into video for posting online, in product manuals, as training materials, and much more. With 130 different file formats available, including HD, you can probably find something useful to do with your old presentations.

To use PPT2Video Pro, you need to have PowerPoint installed, not just some presentation files to convert. The developer recommends having Microsoft Office 2000 or later and claims to be fully compatible with Office 2010. The program's customizable interface has a big-box software look that's sort of a cross between an antivirus utility and a media player. However, it's actually the familiar Windows dialog: a tabbed main display with left-hand navigation pane, only colorfully skinned. Operation is a cinch--three easy clicks to completion--with just a few settings, such as TV format (NTSC, PAL, and SCAME) and video resolution. We like that the conversion choices display their familiar file type icons, which helps distinguish between similar but not necessarily compatible formats. PPT2Video Pro also offers the capability to import and batch convert up to 12 PowerPoint files at one time. We didn't test its full capacity because we didn't have so many PowerPoint files on hand, but nevertheless we were impressed with the speed with which it converted even large, multimedia-heavy presentations.

Wondershare PPT2Video Pro does a lot more, such as simplifying the process of uploading converted videos to Web sites like YouTube, playing presentations on portable devices, and even watching them on Apple TV. What it does best is make it easy to convert your PowerPoint presentations into a wide range of formats that maximize their impact.

After the PPT to video conversion, you can play your presentation video on most video players, share on video sharing sites like YouTube and Hulu, and distribute on portable devices like iphone and iPod.

With Wondershare PPT2Video Pro, you can:

1. Create Videos from PowerPoint presentations for sharing on blogs or video sharing websites like YouTube;
