Many PowerPoint users might have the same needs as Jim Shuttleworth did. Uploading PowerPoint files to the web or watching PowerPoint files on Zune would require you to convert PPTX to WMV or MP4 video beforehand. Some people even tried to convert PPTX to WMV video by using PPTX to WMV converter online, but only to find unstable and failed result. If you want to convert PPTX to WMV video, this guide would be right for you. It shows you 2 ways to convert PPTX to WMV video.
Part 1: Export PPTX File to WMV Video within PowerPoint 2010
If you're using PowerPoint 2010 or its later version, you could have noticed that there is a new feature - "Create a video" option in the "Export" tab. That means, without any need to install 3rd-party PPTX to WMV video converter and PPTX to WMV converter online apps, you could save PPTX file into WMV video in clicks. The below steps would tell you how to export PPTX to WMV video within PowerPoint 2010 and later versions:
- Open your PPTX file within PowerPoint
- Navigate to the "File" menu option and click it.
- On the drop-down panel, click "Export" tab.
- Then you could see a "Create a Video" option.
- In the far right pane, select the quality of video that you wish to create..
- In the far right pane, select whether you want to use Recorded Timings and Narrations.
- Finally, select the number of seconds to spend on each slide and click the "Create Video" button.
- The "Save As" window will appear. Browse to the location to save output video, input a name for the file, choose WMV in the "Save as Type", and finally click the "Save" button.
In this way, you could export PowerPoint to WMV and MP4 video within Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 or later versions, but you have to do this one by one. Also, the output video formats are WMV and MP4 only. That's to say, you can't export PPTX to AVI, FLV or other formats than MP4 and WMV.
