We are thrilled to announce major enhancements to our PowerPoint to video conversion engine and they are:
  • Support for embedded video (WMV & AVI) in video conversions
  • Support for Transition effects in video conversions
  • Improved conversion engine with fast conversion time and more accurate results
These are a few of the most requested features geared to take PowerPoint to video conversion experience to an advanced level. 

Support for embedded video (WMV & AVI) in video conversions
Now when you convert a PowerPoint presentation containing videos (WMV & AVI) to any video format (AVI, FLV, WMV or MP4), the video output of the presentation will play these in-slide videos as well.
  • Simply embed video in your PowerPoint 2010 presentation
  • Upload the PowerPoint presentation on authorSTREAM
  • Convert your PowerPoint to video
Take a look at how in-slide video plays inside a video created out of a PowerPoint presentation. 

Note: authorSTREAM supports this feature in PowerPoint 2010 and  only WMV and AVI video formats are supported for a video conversion.

Transition effects in video conversions
  • Add transition effects to your slides
