One way to ensure totally crystal clear transfers from PPT to Captivate is to configure PPT to play in a window. Then use Captivate to record the PPT as it plays. Because the images aren't changing size, the fidelity should be crystal clear.

Thanks Rick, that's a great solution, but I don't believe it will work for this particular scenario. I should have mentioned that teams are sending me their powerpoints with text on them and all I really want to import is the actual screenshot image that they used as a background. I add the text later in captivate via a caption. Would you know of a way to have captivate pull just the image from the power point slide and convert it as a background in captivate. I'm basically making each slide in my captivate project a full size view of the screenshot.
Perhaps this sounds stupid but if you have the PPT's, why not just delete everything that you do not want to import? I do not see any direct way to import only the backgrounds of the PPT, since the slides are important as a whole eventually with animations. And try to have a similar resolution for the CP as for the PPT to avoid blurry effects.
