Re: Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 Beta
Corporate Video production commonly involves including a live speaker’s PowerPoint into a video capture of his/her live presentation for later viewing/distribution. We used to have to export TIFF’s from Powerpoint and manually insert them into the Premiere timeline over the top of the speaker in appropriate places.
Looks like Microsoft will make us video editor’s job a little easier with the new export to WMV feature in PowerPoint 2010.
Hopefully export settings will improve in the final release. Here are some settings I found that allow an acceptable quality in a DV NTSC Standard definition project:
To access Microsoft PowerPoint’s 2010 (Beta) PowerPoint Presentation to WMV: In the PowerPoint program select “File” – “Share” – “Create a Video”.
In the Beta, there are 3 very basic settings:
1.) “Computer and HD Displays” 960×720
2.) “Internet and DVD” 640×480
3.) “Portable Devices” 320×240
Select the setting “Computer and HD Displays” 960×720.
Import the WMV into Premiere and “Interpret Footage” to D1/DV NTSC .9091 and scale the clip to 75%
