Now that you have exported your slides from within PowerPoint, and reassembled them in Flash, it's time to export them as an SWF that you can distribute and share.

Exporting to an SWF

Before exporting the Flash (.FLA) file to a (.SWF) file, make sure that the (.WMF) file dimension and the Flash movies dimensions are the same. Follow these steps to set the dimensions and export to Flash (.SWF)

  1. When the (.WMF) files are imported into Flash, click on any of the imported images to see the dimensions in the Properties panel of Flash, as shown in Figure 12.
  2. Properties panel

  3. The figures above always show the imported .WMF file dimensions that Flash reports in the properties panel.
  4. Now click anywhere on the gray area to change the document dimension as shown in Figure 13.
  5. Document size

  6. Click the Size button highlighted in red (refer to Figure 13 above) to bring up the Document Properties dialog box, change the dimensions to match those of the imported WMFs, and at the same time change the Frame rate to .25 fps (see Figure 14). Click OK to get back to the stage.

  8. This step is optional. You can even make the Flash movie interactive by adding navigation buttons on the slides. If you want to keep this navigation simple, you could add two buttons on each frame linking to the previous and next frames, and two more buttons to link to the first and the last frame. And of course, you might want to add a pause button if your individual frames contain animation.
  9. From the File menu, choose Export | Export Movie, as shown in Figure 15.
  10. Export Movie

  11. Note: Another way of exporting a movie is by choosing File | Publish, this doesn't provide you with a dialog box that lets you choose an output folder, and is dependent on any setting you might have chosen in the File | Publish Settings option.
  12. Choose the output folder. This opens the Export Flash Player window. Leave the default settings unchanged, and just click OK to export.
