Converting Powerpoint Slideshow To Dvd

Question

I am creating a Powerpoint slideshow for a class reunion with close to 300 slides. Will Roxio Creator 2009 convert this so that I can make DVD's to play on PC and TV without losing the transitions, etc? If so, how?

 

Thanks for any input.

C2009 does not accept PowerPoint slideshows. You will have to convert it first to an C2009 acceptable format suchas DV-avi or mpeg2 using a 3rd party conversion program.

What conversion program do you recommend?

 

Just curious, unless you are doing slide show "builds", why are you making a Power Point Slide Show? Why not do a Video wave project? You can add transitions, narration, overlays (sort of like builds) and your own music.

 

If you do this slide shows reasonably frequently, look at PhotoShow premium membership (fee per year). I just did 4 Photo Shows for my 50th reunion. It has some nice transition themes. You can add text on the images and upload your own music. You can post links to it and you can burn DVD from it via either a download of the mp4 file or simply by making a PhotoShow with the desktop version. You can get 720 high definition if you want. No, I don't work for Roxio but doing the reunion this way saved me a lot of time. Here is an example of a PhotoShow from the reunion and here is a different one of my favorite place. No, I am not in all those pictures; the person who had the camera take them and no, I am not the fisherman.

 

In both Video Wave (which you probably have if you are posting here) and in PhotoShow, you can mix video and images.

I have done a slideshow in Videowave. So if I want to do Videowave - save all the slides (300) as jpg's?

My reply was giving you an alternate to converting the Power Point presentation to a DVD. I'm sorry if I confused you. I had assumed that 90+% of the images you were going to use were pictures.

 

What do you intend to do with the slide show other than make the DVD? If you are going to show the DVD at a gathering, you can rent a projector that will play and project the slide show on a screen. If you make the DVD without a menu, it will repeat until you shut if off. This is great for unattended viewing; people watch it and then can see it out of the corner of their eye the rest of the evening and discuss the pictures.

 

If you want to narrate it live, you can use the Slide Show Assistant that you can burn to a DVD and then use a DVD remote to play it one slide at a time. (I can't see anyone doing that with 300 images.)

 

Can you give me more information about just what you want to do?

I am planning to show the slideshow at the reunion. Have a projector, etc. for that. Then, wanted to give the same slideshow as a DVD to all attending so they can watch it on their TV or PC when they return home. I inserted all the photos scanned from the yearbooks into Powerpoint, then I added names, etc. to each one - as they appeared in the yearbooks.

Do a google search for "PowerPoint to DVD" and you will get lots of hits. Of course there is very free software to do the conversion.

The tool that REDWAGON recommend (Acoolsoft PPT to Video) can help you convert your PowerPoint to MPEG. The animations, transitions, sounds and other elements that you add to PowerPoint will be retained after the conversion.

Then you can burn the video to DVD with Roxio Creator.

 

There is also another tool from Acoolsoft that can help you directly burn your PowerPoint to DVD: PPT to DVD. Maybe you can have a try.

As I know, you can convert PowerPoint slides to DVD with Wondershare PPT2DVD directly!

This converter is a professional one that can retain all elements such as animations into DVD.

 

Hope it helps!

Alice and oviamy MAY be spammers (and the same person) but there is not way of knowing unless they come back and answer your question. I doubt it. The reason that the post was not deleted was because it recommended a program that did something that the Roxio program did not do.

 

I would try the free program that Redwagon suggested first. I don't ever buy anything from a potential spammer because you never know what mailing list they will add you to.

 

If they come back, I am willing to remove this post and to apologize.

Before running to an automatic tool, I would suggest you to convert the slideshow to video with the help of the inbuilt Windows movie maker tool. For this you will be required to do this

 

Save all the slides as images

Export all into Movie maker

And then convert powerpoint to video with the help of it

 

In the movie maker, there are different transition options for the videos. You can use them and embed them in the video. However, if you still don't want to do this, go for a trusted third party converter tool like Roxio.

Good day! I too was looking for a way to convert a PPT to run on a "dumb" DVD player (not computer, no opsys, no apps). I tried a few "free-wares" but was neither comfortable nor impressed. One or two apps for sale were interesting, but I'm/We're broke. Win 7, PowerPoint2007, and Roxio 2011 were already paid-for, so why not have a few hard attempts? And it worked! And it wasn't so hard after all!

1. Open your PPT to the "Normal" or "Working" view, not Slideshow.

2. Go File, Save As, Other Formats, Saves As Type=JPG.

3. Select "Every Slide." PP will then rip the presentations slides into individual jpegs and place these in a destination folder.

4. Launch Roxio (in my case, this is Creator 2011, v 1.3.1.166, SP3, 5.0.0.0.)

5. Select "Photo," "Create Slideshow."

6. Click Add Photos, and point to your source folder.

7. Do Ctrl-A to select all, then click Open (give it a few moments), then click Next.

8. Under Transistion Style, about mid-way down, select "DVD Projector."

9. You'll be advised that this will be DVD only, no music, no trans, etc....no problem; that's actually what you'll want (I think...)

10. Thus far, I haven't found that changing the "seconds-to-display" changes anything on the actual DVD.

11. "Burn to Disc."

12. Change your title(s) as necessary.

13. Please, dear God, set Intro Audio to Mute; I blasted a roomful of firearms students and they almost blasted me...

14. When the DVD pops out (done), put it into a "dumb" DVD player, let it spin-up, then use Play and/or FWD-BCK and it runs just like your grandparent's slideshow of your parent's baby pictures.

Be Brave; Experiment!

TT

I don't understand your problem. You do have Power Point program, how else could you create presentation?. Save your presentation in Power Point as .WMV file, then you can insert it into Roxio Video Waves. End of story. Do I miss something?

Perhaps asking what verion of Power Point the person was trying to use. I know early versions did not have the ability to output other than to a pps or pack and go.

Echo? Spam. There are other programs that were listed. michaelholmes looked at the title and then spammed this 4 year old thread.

 

Time to close it.
