Convert PPT to video for Free

Updated on August 17, 2013

Convert PowerPoint to Video for Free - No Watermarks with Sound and Animations

One of the easiest ways to make a video is make a slideshow and then record it while it is playing on the screen. This is also known as recording the PPT. In this lens, you are going to see another free way to convert PPT to video. You may ask what is the difference? Both ways I am going to get a video. There is a huge difference and if you are a PPT pro, you may prefer to convert your PPT or PPTX to video rather than recording it. Why? While converting, your PPT is converted from PPT format to video format and that's it. So, there won't be any difference between your slideshow and the video. But, while recording your PPT, if something pops up in your computer, you have to do the whole recording once again. If you have many PPTs to convert to video, this is the best method. Above all, this software is free and there won't be any watermark on your final video.

If you are Windows 2010 user, you have to just save your PPT as video.

Free PPT to Video Converter

There is a free software PowerDVDPoint Lite, which will help you to convert PPT to video. Download this software from here. After downloading the freeware and installing it, click Convert to Video Files and then Add Presentation. Select your presentation and click Next. In the next page, select WMV or MOV (both formats are accepted by YouTube) and click Next. You can also change the configuration of your video in the next page. Finally, click Ok and your video will be generated. For a detailed step-by-step instructions, please watch the below video.

There are few more things that makes this software the best out there:

#1 Freeware.

#2 No watermark on the final video.

#3 Sound and animations of the PPT will be retained.

One feature that this freeware is missing is HD video format output. But, sometimes this is not a deal breaker, especially if you are not a pro video maker.

Do you prefer a free tool with few uses or a paid tool packed with uses?

HD videos make a huge impact on your viewers. With Camtasia, not only can you produce HD videos, you can also edit your videos. You can edit out the Umms and Ahhs and also those extra clicks with ease. One other feature I mostly use in my Camtasia is audio editing and all put together Camtasia is the best video editing and rendering software I have ever used.
