What's your export format?
The WMV file is playing just fine in Windows Media Player but once it's in PowerPoint, my titles disappear and turn black.
I've tried the Adobe Encoding option and turned it to an Mpg and a Avi and they both won't even open on my computer. It keeps popping up as an error.
I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'm very new at video editing and have a very tight deadline!
Kaylynn, WMV is the only way to go for PowerPoint, it doesn't like much else.
What version of PowerPoint are you on?
I agree with Matt. Something weird is going on with PowerPoint. Not sure this is a Premiere problem.
>it will just flash the words for a split second and then turn to a black screen.
An issue with the infamous "Optimize Stills" option perhaps?
I don't know what "Optimize Stills" means. When I say I'm very new at video editing, I mean brand new. I was able to put together a 45 second news-clip-style video of our latest staff function but this is pushing eight minutes and is an integral part of our organization's upcoming forums next Tuesday.
Do you think I should be contacting Microsoft about what the issue might be with PowerPoint, instead of worrying about my file?
The weird thing is, when I just Export-Movie, it comes out fine in Windows Media Player but wonky in PP. When I Export-Adobe Encode-WMV, it won't even open on my computer or play in Windows Media Player. Any suggestions on compressing the file further without any problems?
Matt, I'm on PP 2003.

That's not good.
You could try to export as an AVI, and if that looks okay, encode using the standalone Windows Media Encoder.
If you haven't already, try rendering your timeline first before export. I had a weird, yet similar problem once that was solved this way. It's a long story.
