I currently have a video file Windows Media Audio/Video File (.asf). Once I press play the video will open two separate windows, one will be the presenter camera recorded and the other will be the powerpoint presentation. When I try to insert this video file into Premiere Pro CS5 to create a video lecture, Premiere will read the main video file as the presenter camera, I cannot get to open the PowerPoint recorded. Is there a way to convert this file into two different separate video files, the PowerPoint and the presenter? Please let me know if you can. I really appreciate your help
Hmm... does your original file somehow "encapsulate" the PP file, so the 2nd display is actually a PowerPoint file?
If so... as far as I know... PPro will not load a PP file, you must convert the PP file into a video
PowerPoint 2010 to WMV http://forums.adobe.com/message/2669100 may help
When I press play I have two recorded video windows opening separetly. This is the type of video format .asf / WMV. Premiere recognize the presenter video as the primary and the powerpoint video window will not play The bottom line is that I need Premiere to recognize the two video windows and not just one. This was a bunch of lectures that were recorded that way, I cannot change the PPoint file. The lectures are already done and the .asf file is what I have to work with.
>powerpoint video window will not play
Well, that only verifies my understanding... PPro does not work with PowerPoint files
Sorry... I think you will need to use different software... since WMV and PowerPoint are both Microsoft formats, you will most likely need to use a Microsoft product

This is not a PowerPoint file, the recording captured the computer screen at the time, it could have been a movie playing, pictures showing..anything. It happened that at the time of the recording a PowerPoint presentaion was showing on the computer screen, so that image was recorded into .asf / WMV file format. Now the question here is about the file format not what was captured on the computer screen at the time of the recording. Sorry for such a confusion.
OK... a little further along... what is the codec of the screen capture?
Some notes on screen capture software... may or may not help, depending on what you used (some notes for other software, but still about screen capturing)
