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.

If you're interested in sharing your PowerPoint presentations as DVDs to be played on a DVD player, this program gives you a simple, no-fuss way to do it. Wondershare PPT2DVD burns a completed presentation to a DVD, and includes all aspects of it, including transitions, music, videos, and so on. PPT2DVD is exceptionally easy to use. Import your presentation, then choose the proper standards for playing on DVD, such as NTSC, PAL, or SECAM, as well as the aspect ratio, either 4:3 or widescreen (16:9). If you're not sure of the standards, just choose the country where the DVD will be played, and the program chooses the right standards for you.
You can also choose the output quality, and other specifications, such as the size of the margin around the presentation, or simply leave the default. After that, choose the DVD title menu, the play options (such as auto-play mode or not), and PPT2DVD builds a preview of what the presentation will look like when played as a DVD. That way, you can go back and edit it if you're not satisfied. Once you're satisfied with it, the program burns it to DVD. You can burn to normal DVDs or high-definition DVDs. Videodub more.

Mpeg1, and mpeg2 suitable running over the Web, or via a variety of PC-based video players. Why share presentations via a DVD rather than PowerPoint? Sending big PowerPoint presentations via e-mail can be problematic, because some mail providers and ISPs have a limit on the size of files you can send.
And if for some reason you need to send a presentation to someone without a PC or copy of PowerPoint, this is a good solution. Most people won't likely need to share presentations via DVD, so won't want this program. But for anyone who wants to share that way, PPT2DVD makes it easy. Note that the program makes an odd change to your system if you use Vista; it turns off User Account Control (UAC). So you'll need to turn UAC back on after installation, if you want to keep using UAC. Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
