    Power Point 2003 to Flash - audio problems

    KarenE4
      We are trying to publish an existing 2003 ppt to Flash. The ppt contains multiple .mp3 files per slide. On conversion, most audio clips are lost and some overlap. Does Presenter allow for the insertion of multiple mp3 files per slide and to be in sync with custom animation? Please advise. Thanks!!

          "Does Presenter allow for the insertion of multiple mp3 files per slide"

          No. Presenter is a single audio thread tool. You can add additional audio through a SWF or FLV file on the slide, but that is the only work around.

          "and to be in sync with custom animation?"

          Yes, you can sync animations with the audio of the slide. But understand that syncing it with SWF's or FLV's is a challenge that is not worth undertaking for most. I have seen some... creative solutions posted here for that, but most of us are best off just letting that path go.

            Thank you for your response. Would Captivate be a better tool for a conversion with multiple audio files? Any other product out there that could do this? It seems important to be able to keep audio clips small so that load time isn't a burden to the user, but that means lots of mp3s!

              The only hang up I have is the need for multiple Mp3's per slide. Presenter allows you to have one and Captivate allows you to have an audio track with background audio for the presentation.

              To truly find if Captivate is the better solution (and you may find yourself rebuilding your slides in Captivate rather than importing them) download the 30 day trial version and see if it works for you.

                Hi, I use Audacity to create MP3 files and then import them to Presenter via the Audio Editor.
