I need to record a narrated set of powerpoint slides. I
understand how to import the presentation and this is ok but then
you would have to record separately each slide's narration and
import it - very tedious and the flow is rather choppy. I tried
just playing a powerpoint show on the screen and capturing in
Captivate as a demonstration, using the right arrow to advance.
However, the slides don't all show in the edit window (although the
entire sequence does play) and the narration is out of sync with
the slide movements when played back. (The slides tend to change
out faster than the background narration.) Obviously this isn't the
right way to do it. Does anyone have ideas on how best to create a
narrated powerpoint? Many Thanks! Gary
Hello, GShep -- recording the audio for each slide and
importing the file is a bit tedious but makes a perfectly sync-ed
presentation. There is no reason why it needs to be "choppy." I
record the whole thing, then cut it up with a sound editor.
Assuming transitions are accurate the result should be virtually
seamless. Some of us have a really hard time doing two things at
once (reading a script and mousing / clicking), so this lets you
focus on one thing at a time.
