Why Convert Your PowerPoint Into a Video ?
Here are four great reasons to convert your PowerPoint into a video:
- The device on which you want to display PowerPoint files does not support PowerPoint files (such as Smart TV or handheld game consoles).
- You want to share your presentation on Youtube and other video sites.
- You already have a finished PowerPoint presentation and don’t have the time to recreate it from scratch in a video editor.
- Your recipient doesn’t have PowerPoint installed on their device, but can open it in a standard video player app.
- You don’t have the time to learn a new piece of video editing software to create a presentation video.
