Importing Power Point  slides

I have been trying to resolve this for the past two weeks. I
have been successfully importing Power Point slides into Captivate
1 for the last year. Although have not done anything different,
Captivate is no longer importing the jpg logo (height 0.58" width
1" displays top right corner) on the PP slide . Everything but the
logo is displayed in Captivate. The logo is on the Slide Master . I
replaced the Slide Master, copied the logo onto each individual PP
slide and recreated the entire power point presentation without any
success. Can anyone provide a cause and resolution? Thanks.

I have also had inconsistent results with PowerPoint imports
in both Captivate 1 and 2. There seem to be less in version 2. The
problem that I have been experiencing is with fonts. I will have a
slide that clearly is within the frame in PowerPoint, but when
imported into Captivate flows off the bottom of the slide. This is
also incosistent from slide to slide. Here's what I have been
doing. It's isn't ideal, but hopefully time will get this issued
ironed out.
1) I go through my normal import procedures for PowerPoint
presentations by look closely at the thumbnails provided before the
final import. If it looks like there is going to be a problem, then
I bail out at this point.
2) I go back into PowerPoint, call up my presentation, and
the do a File > Save As> and then select the file type at the
bottom as JPEG. It will then ask you if you want to save all. I put
them in another directory and PowerPoint saves each slide image as
an individual JPEG image.
3) I go back to Captivate and import these as images in the
file creation sequence.
This usually results in a pretty clean set of slide.
Hope this helps.

  • Importing Power Point Slides into FCE

    Hey all,
    Have a project where I need to use a customer's power point slides in the finished video. Can I import them someway? Or maybe import into Live Type????
    Trying to avoid having to type all of them.
    Thanks,
    Al

    You can save a PowerPoint slideshow in many ways.
    One possibility is to export a set of images with the format you like: jpeg, tiff, png, etc.: make sure to select the correct DPI (as defined in PPT) in the Options of the save as dialog. For example 180 dpi make a standard slide of 1800x1350 pixels that might fit well in standard DV sequences (default 72 dpi makes a low quality 720x540 image).
    A second possibility is to export a movie; also in this case you can choose some parameters like the size of the frame. The default codec is Animation that is good, but requires a conversion of the movie in order to properly import it to FCE.

  • I cannot import Power Point slides into my presentation...

    Hello, have created brand new project with Captivate 7 and tried to import a Power Point slide I made seconds earlier, and I get an error message.  I tried the same with a new project in Captivate 6 (I have 6 and 7) and I get the same message.  See image.  Power Point was closed when I tried to import it.  Any ideas what could possibly be happening?
    Thanks for any help!!!

    As per the Captivate 7 manual:
    1. In an open project, Select File > Import > PowerPoint Slides.
    2. Navigate to and select the PowerPoint presentation file format that you want to import.
    3. Click Open.
    4. Decide where to place the imported PowerPoint slides in the Adobe Captivate project. Add the slides to the end of the project, or click a slide in the list and add the PowerPoint slides after that slide.
    5. Click OK.
    6. In the Convert PowerPoint Presentations dialog box, do the following:
    a. Select the PowerPoint slides to convert to Adobe Captivate project slides.
    b. Set navigation preferences for the selected slides.
    c. If you want to link to the PowerPoint presentation, select Linked. If you want to embed the PowerPoint presentation, deselect Linked.
    7. Click OK.
    The PowerPoint slides are imported into the Adobe Captivate project and they appear in the designated location. If necessary, you can change the order of the slides.
    Hope this helps!

  • Import power point slides

    Hi,
    I did a lot of internet research on this topic but couldn't solve it yet. Hope one of you can help with that issue.
    The problem is that when I save a power point slide as an image file (bmp, jpg, png) and import it to indesign the image quality is getting bad. After resizing the picture the quality is at the worse.
    Same problem occurs when I resize the image with an other software. Then the quality of the image is also very bad.
    Has anyone an idea how to solve that?
    greets tim

    Thanks for your reply.
    I tried this already and It's the same problem. PDF quality is perfect - when I import it into indesign it's getting worse.

  • Importing power point slide into captivate

    Not sure what I am doing wrong. I imported an animation slide
    from power point to captivate last night and it worked great (using
    Captivate2) I tried this morning (using cpativate 3) and the
    animation will not play, it just looks like a picture. Is there
    something different I have to do using Captivate 2 version vs the
    Captivate 3 version? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi again yankeebrit
    Well, where there's a will, there is often a way...
    You could accomplish it by using what I refer to as 'The
    Camtasia Approach'. Basically, it goes like this. Configure the
    PowerPoint to play in a resizable window. Start the slide show in
    the window, then set Captivate up to record the slideshow as it
    plays. Then, when you know animation is coming, press the F9 key to
    begin a full motion capture. When the animation ends, press F10 to
    stop recording in full motion.
    Using that technique, you are able to get what you want from
    Captivate 2.
    Just a thought... Rick

  • Change  advance on power  point slide  after import

    How  do I change a power point slide that was imported to advance on click but I want the slides to advance automatically? 

    Hello,
    Watch the imported slides, they all have a Click Box inserted at the end of the timeline (see screenshot in the red rectangle). Delete that click box and the slide will advanced automatically.

  • Power Point Slides Change Color After Importing

    I built a lot of training material (22 Captivate
    modules/movies)- Power Point slides for text, mixed with software
    simulations. Several of the modules need updating, however, since
    we upgraded from Office XP to Office 2007, I have been unsuccesful
    in importing the edited Power Point slides. Instead of the gradient
    pale-blue background with black text (as it appears in my Captivate
    movies as well as in Power Point) the moment you choose your slides
    to import into Captivate, they become purple with teal text. I had
    a co-worker access my files on a share drive and attempt it on her
    machine, with the same result.
    Anyone else having Captivate anomolies after upgrading to
    Office 2007?

  • Error importing a power point slide into Captivate 4 project

    I am trying to add a Power Point slide to an existing project.  I am using Power Point 2007 and Captivate 4.  When I try to insert a Power Point slide, I get the following message:
    Error Message:  Unable to load nsImportPPT.dll(999)
    Can anyone help with this issue.  Thanks!

    Hi,
    nsImportPPT.dll is an "Adobe Captivate 4" dll and should be present in the "Adobe Captivate 4" installation directory (which is "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 4" by default). Please check if this file exists there.
    I think 999 error comes when the DLL is not found. Try Re-Installing your Adobe Captivate 4.

  • Importing Power Point and Embedding Video in Captivate Question

    I am new to Adobe Captivate, but I have heard the following:
    1)     I can import a power point slide directly into Captivate 5.5.  
    2)     I can add a action buttion that when click, can play a short video embedded within one of the slides.
    My objective is:
    1)     When I click that action buttion, I want to play that short video embedded within one of the slides.
    2)     Each slide will have an action buttion, and embedded slide of video (different video).
    3)     When the video is completed, it returns back to display the original slide
    4)     The user can just look at the slide and just move to the next slide without showing the video.
    To accomplish this in Captivate 5.5, can I do this ?
    1)     I understand that one must place a button on the converted slide and also embed the video to another slide.  This is done by using the tool bar.
    Is it possible to do this using programing scripts or anything ???    I would have a many slides to do, and I would like to automate this process.
    I would appreciate any suggestions and help.
    Thank You,

  • Importing Power Point without click boxes

    When I import Power Point, I don't want click boxes to come
    along because I just have to remove them all later. That requires a
    lot of time when your power point is really huge. Is there any way
    to import without the click boxes so the slides will transition
    smoothly without my havign to do anything?
    Thanks!

    Hi janablessed
    When you create a project based on PowerPoint, note the
    screen you see. Look closely near the bottom of the dialog. See
    that drop-down choice labeled "Advance slide"? Click it and change
    it from "On mouse click" to "Automatically".
    Cheers... Rick

  • How to import power point sound on keynote ?

    how can I import power point diaporamas with the sound on keynote ?

    Sorry, Adobe Reader only reads PDF files, not PowerPoint files.
    However, if you bought Keynote for about US $9.99 in the App Store, you could open PowerPoint files.

  • Is there a way to replace a Power Point slide in Captivate and keep the CC notes?

    Hello,
    I have a lot of Power Point slides in my Captivate project. The Power Point presentation is on a Share Point, so it is impractical to "link" the Captivate project with the Power Point presentation.  Now and then we need to make changes to the Power Point slides and then replace the old slide in Captivate with the new slide.  We have a lot of CC notes and TTS attached to each slide, so I lose all of that when I replace the slide.  Is there a way to keep the synchronized CC and TTS notes in place, and just replace the acutal slide?
    Thank you!
    Ryan

    1 - simplest way:
    drag the sound file on to the audio well in the Inspector > document > document tab
    music can only start on the first slide and will play untill the music ends, you can only have one music file in the presentation
    2 - more control
    drag the sound file on to any slide, add the  images on to the same slide and use Builds to reveal each image in turn
