Try outputting the ppt slides out of MSPP as jpegs and then import them into your flash library to use.
Might be some settings FLash does not like or can't parse during the import process. Just a guess.
Or try converting the PPT to PDF and then export JPG or PNG from that for import into Flash.
What I did is to convert the ppt to jpg (just did save as jpg from ppt), but the characters are not clear as ppt, some are messed up, especially the horizontal strokes.........
If you look at the jpg file, every character is fine. But once I import them into flash libaray, and then drag them on the stage, the characters are messed up. it is strange, because I thought once it is converted into jpg, it becomes a picture, so I could not understand why the horizontal strokes are gone...................
It sound like the jpeg that PPT makes is being distorted by flash or just isn't giving flash what it needs. I know this is a pain but try opening the jpeg into Photoshop or fireworks and see if the image looks good there if it does save it using the jpg compression filter at 100% out of these programs. This is purely to see what is happening with the jpeg on the way out of PPT.
Then try importing the new saved jpg into flash.
Also before you do this make sure you are exporting out PPT at the highest you can.
I aways save jpgs at 100% quality and use Flash to compress it more if I need.
I just noticed that after I imported the jpg into Flash, they showed as bitmap. Therefore the quality of the image is poor.
Do you know how to fix it?
jpgs are a bitmap based (raster image) file format (type) anything that uses pixels will show up in teh library as a bitmap (type).
If you double click the image in the library it will open the bitmap properties box. If the file that it lists says yourfilename.jpg it is a jpg.
Did you fix the distortion? If not did you run the tests?
I gave up other means and typed all the content in Flash. Now it looks good. Spend a lot of time retyping everything.....
