Saving as powerpoint for powerpoint user

Postby Vaughn » Fri Mar 28, 2008 8:11 pm

Im making a Slideshow where im integrating Audio and manipulating variable secund for the different slide
The file has to be opened with Power Point for and exposition in a museum

I dont have Power point myself
Can I count 100% that it will open and work the same in Power Point as in OOo?

I have two Soundfiles timed to the 48 slides triggered from two different slides
one In the beginning and one halfway through

Thank you

No, in fact it's almost guaranteed not to work. The export to PPT has problems with embedded audio.

I don't know what to recommend. Even if you create the show in PowerPoint, it wouldn't be guaranteed to work on the other end. E.g., fonts may be missing or different compared to your system.

You can at least test the Impress-exported file by running the PPT file under the free "PowerPoint Viewer" (Google for it). If it doesn't work, you may have to find a copy of PowerPoint and re-attach the audio.

Definitely check out this thread: Sound Won't Transfer to Power Point.
