there's no easy way.
you either must:
1. pay someone to do it for you.
2. learn as2 and do it yourself
3. create a powerpoint presentation that can use as3
4. don't use powerpoint.
An AS3.0 SWF works fine in PowerPoint.
I only have difficulty when I try to embedded an AS3.0 SWF into a PowerPoint 2007 presentation and publish the slideshow using the plugin "Adobe Presenter 7."
Presenter 7 exports slideshows and creates a viewer.swf to display the shows inside a webpage. The viewer.swf is scripted in AS2.0, so that's why the embedded AS3.0 SWF doesn't function inside the viewer.swf.
i've never used adobe presenter but it doesn't make sense for the latest version (7) would fail to support as3. i see nothing about that limitation at
and, in fact, because one of the following:
Flash Player 8, 9 for Win and Mac.
Flash Player 9 for Linux & Solaris.
i would infer it does support as3.
Seems like Presenter 7 would support AS3, but it doesn't appear to. I've embedded multiple AS2 SWFs and all function without difficulty. But any SWFs scripted with AS3 don't function when published using Presenter 7.
did you search the help files for as3 support?
I found answer to why Presenter 7 does not support AS3 in this thread: http://www.connectusers.com/forums/cucbb/viewtopic.php?id=1890

"When content is created, there was another problem. Adobe Presenter 7 (the latest version) does not allow embedding other flash animations which use AS3. We are limited to AS2. According to a forum post elsewhere, this has been done to make sure all the Adobe Presenter generated content will be compatible with Connect Pro which is expected to run in Flash Player 8, 9 and 10."
Looks like my options are as you originally posted. I think I'll do my best to find another tutorial that has instructions for scripting a drag and drop game in AS2.
Thanks for the recommendation. I went ahead and made a feature request to add support to Adobe Presenter for the ActionScript 3 library.
HI Every One !
i had the same issue when creating a SWF file using Captivate 5.5 and trying to publish using Presenter 7. noticed that Captivate 4 gives you the choice AS2 or AS3, then I realized that it's clearly in the presenter 7 help file that says " Presenter 7 DOES NOT Support AS3" . thank you.
