Executable PowerPoint files

Apr 12, 2012 5:14 PM

For church, I create PowerPoint files with the slides synchronized with inserted music (mp3 files). Do any of the Adobe products allow converting these files to executable files that are easier to run and to pass on to other people?

    Hi

     

    You can use Adobe captivate to generate executables by importing Powerpoint files

    But note that Presenter assets will be lost. Synced animations are also lost

     

    thanks

    Does publishing as a PDF not meet this need? You will end up with a single page PDF that plays the presentation. It requires Reader 9 or newer.

    You should publish to PDF through Presenter, not save as PDF through PPT.

    Well, best option is to do the trial version, available here: http://www.adobe.com/products/presenter/

     

    But as an example, here is a POC we did. It show the timing and audio in the presentation and being played back in a PDF.

    Presenter is a Windows only application, so no Mac version.
