Assemble Everything

Created: Sunday, August 5, 2007, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:19 pm

Before you start inserting your Flash movie on a PowerPoint slide, you should follow these good practices to assemble all the stuff:

  1. First of all, make sure that you have all the four prerequisites in place.
  2. Place your saved PowerPoint presentation in a new or existing folder. Copy your Flash SWF file to this folder.

    If you need to insert the Flash SWF file into a new presentation, then save the Flash SWF file into a new folder. Then create a new presentation and save it in this folder.

  3. If the presentation is not open, launch PowerPoint, open the presentation and navigate to the slide where you want to insert a Flash SWF movie.
  4. Thereafter, the process in which you insert the Flash SWF will differ a little if you use PowerPoint 2007 or a previous version of PowerPoint.

If you use a version of PowerPoint that’s pre-2007, proceed here…

PowerPoint 2007 users should proceed here…
