    Convert ppt to avi/mpeg (97)

    I am creating a PowerPoint presentation which needs to be converted (eventually) to VHS format. Lacking a video card on my PC, I was wondering if there is any other way to convert the presentation to avi/mpeg format? If I can achieve that, I can burn the avi/mpeg to CD, and then to VHS from there.

    Thanks - I knew I'd seen it somewhere, but I couldn't remember where!

    Actually, this does sound like it will get me started along the right path; thanks very much!

    Now, for the fun part...see, I am putting together a slide show (with music) of scanned pictures of a high school's football teams from old yearbooks. Here's the kicker...they want this to end up on VHS. (The person they originally had lined up to do this backed out at the last minute, so it's kind of a rush job.) Since I do not own a video output card (and the amount I am being paid for this does not justify buying one), I decided to try to make an .avi file, burn that file to CD as a .vcd file, and use a DVD player to copy it to VHS. I hope the quality doesn't suffer too much from generation to generation. I also hope I am lucky enough that, between my 2 DVD players and 3 VCRs, I can come up with a combination that negates the copy protection. If not, I may end up buying that card after all... <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    Thanks again!

    If you're not being paid too much, just point the camcorder at the computer screen (or even at the yearbook) <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I thought of that... <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>...my wife convinced me it might not be the thing to do. As luck would have it, one of my co-workers has a video output card at home, and has offered to do this for me. I may have to split my fee though... <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>
