You can export your presentation slides created within PowerPoint into a video clip in either WMV or MP4 formats. This is probably the easiest way to create quick videos from your slides, and is best suited for converting photo slides to video clips. You can also use this technique to create video clips from PowerPoint that can be uploaded to YouTube or other video-sharing sites.

PowerPoint's video export features respect sounds, animations, and transition effects. For the latter, you can also override the slide transition delay as required.

Follow these steps to export a PowerPoint presentation as a video clip in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows:

  1. Open the presentation that you want to export as a video. Click on the File menu, as shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1, below, to open Backstage View.
  2. File option
    Figure 1: File option
  3. Now, choose the Export option, as shown highlighted in blue within Figure 2, below, to view the Export panel. Here, select the Create a Video option, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2.
  4. Export Panel

  12. B. Recorded Timings and Narrations

  13. Here, you can decide whether you want to export your presentation along with all slide transitions, narrations, and laser pointer gestures as it is, or you want to make some changes. Click the down-arrow to open the drop-down menu, as shown in Figure 5, below.

  15. Let's explore the options as shown in Figure 5.
  16. Don't Use Record Timings and Narrations

  17. When you select this option, all the slides within the exported video will be set with a delay time that you specify within the Seconds spent on each slide box, marked as C within Figure 3, previously on this page. Also the narrations will be lost.
  18. Use Record Timings and Narrations

  19. This option makes sure that slide transition times within the exported video will be same as the transition time within the presentation (unless you record the timings and narrations, as explained next). If any of the slides do not have slide transition times, you can specify a time within the Seconds spent on each slide box, marked as C within Figure 3, previously on this page.
  20. Record Timings and Narrations

  21. This option allows you to record the slide transition time and narrations manually. This provides you with more control over the slide transition timing within the exported video.
  22. Preview Timings and Narrations

  23. Select this option to see how the exported video will play.
  24. C. Seconds spent on each slide

  25. If you want to override the slide transition applied to the slides, and want all slides to follow the same transition time in the exported video, enter the required transition time (in seconds) within this box.
  26. D. Create Video

  27. Once you have made all required settings for the video to be exported, click this button. This action will summon the Save As dialog box, as shown in Figure 6, below.
  28. Save As dialog box
