Microsoft Powerpoint has an integrated export function that allows you to turn any PPT presentation into a video. We show you how it works.
Powerpoint presentations can be converted into all imaginable file formats. In addition to the common image formats and the classic “PDF”, you can also convert your presentation into an MPEG4 video. This is especially useful when working with recordings or comments. How this works exactly is explained step by step in this article.
How to create a video from your presentation
Open Powerpoint and the corresponding presentation that you want to turn into a video. Then click the “File” tab at the top left to switch to the PowerPoint menu .
In the first step, open the PPT menu from the “File” tab.
There you click on the menu item “Export”. PowerPoint offers you numerous export options, ranging from the usual PDF document to a handout in Microsoft Word . In this specific case, select the “Create video” item.
Various settings are now displayed in the right-hand window:
Resolution: In this drop-down box you select the quality of the video to be created. You can choose between Standard (480p), HD (720p), Full HD (1080p) and Ultra HD (4K).
Recordings: Here you can choose whether or not to include recorded timings or comments.
Display time: Set how many seconds each slide should be displayed.
When you have made all the necessary settings, click on “Create video”. Give this a file name and close the process by clicking on “Export”.
