Whether you're creating a slideshow for school, or creating a presentation for work, people can't deny that PowerPoint is always a loyal friend. Now, this loyal friend has many different functions. You can make it fancy, plain, save it as a PDF, or better yet, a video!

The best thing about making your PowerPoint into a video is that if you have a timed presentation, you can get used to the length by using the video.

In this article, I am going to walk you through how to turn your fantastic PowerPoint into an outstanding video. It's very simple! Then you can even animated specific slides like a multimedia venn diagram or a visual timeline.

Here is what you will need to do:

  1. Make your PowerPoint presentation
  2. Use Kapwing
  3. Save it!

Step 1 - Access Your PowerPoint Presentation

I always suggest saving a PowerPoint version of your presentation in addition to your new video. Once you've done that, head to PowerPoint and click on 'file' on the top left in the menu bar. Click 'save as' and change the format to be "MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)"

Step 2 - Open Kapwing and Edit!

This is my favorite part. Getting to edit it! When you are ready, locate Kapwing's workspace and choose from a bunch of awesome tools. I always like to use  the studio editor since you can locate all of the tools there. You can also use one of Kapwing's templates to start editing.

Upload your video and, like I ALWAYS say, the world is your EDITING OYSTER! I personally would add some background music and some fun photos or animated texts. Maybe a frame too! Whatever your heart desires.

Step 3 - Save and Publish

When you are all finished editing, click on 'publish' and watch your new video start rendering. This may take a few moments but don't worry, it's working! After it has finished, save it to your files for whenever you are ready to use it.
