Hello.

I've got kind of a problem. Me and my friend are doing a school project about computers, their history etc. First, we wanted to do a presentation about this in PowerPoint, but because of compatibility issues (MSO vs. LibreOffice in school) we'd rather like to do a simple video about it, kinda replacing the standard presentation.

My first idea was to do things like this in Sony Vegas, or Camtasia - you know, just copy some text, add some images, simple effects, music, etc. But it's really not optimised for doing things like this - it's slow and even simple text formatting takes high amount of time.

My question is, is there any software that could help me in this situation? Maybe some plugins for programs like Vegas?

Thanks in advance.

PS. I know, the title may be a little misleading, I honestly had no idea how to describe my problem...

You know that you can save a PowerPoint as a video without extra software ?  :thumbup2:

 

MS Office 2010 : File - Save & Send - Create a video

MS Office 2013 : File - Export - Create a video

Thank you OTT - I didn't know that PowerPoint could be used to save visual projects as video. This opens up many creative possibilities. :)

 

Some time years ago I put a presentation together for my garden club. It was just a collection of photos combined with text to create a set of slides. After reading your suggestion here I tried a simple experiment and used PowerPoint to save the original slide collection 'as video'. Amazingly it worked! Ofcourse, in this case, to watch it is the same as watching a slide show but it could be edited together with video footage, music or recorded comments.    

 

Here is a link to some very good tutorials on PowerPoint:
