Video export your way


PowerPoint will export videos; some versions even give you a bit of choice as to the resolution but if you need more control?

PowerPoint doesn't go there.


But with a bit of VBA, it's simple to get more control All you really need to do is:

Change any of the stuff after CreateVideo to suit your taste:

At low resolutions, the export is almost instantaneous for small presentations. At higher resolutions, it can take a while; if you try to launch the WMV while PPT's still working on it, Media Player will tell you that the file's open in another application. No harm done. Once PPT's done exporting, it'll open in media player and you know you're good to go.

See How do I use VBA code in PowerPoint? to learn how to use this example code.

But I don't want to touch VBA!

In that case, pay a visit to Shyam Pillai's site where he has a Video Tools add-in for PowerPoint.
