Benchmark Presentation for PowerPoint to Flash Conversion

Created: Wednesday, October 3, 2007, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:47 pm



There are scores of PowerPoint to Flash converters out there, and they all do some things right, and they all have their problem areas. In such a scenario, it’s difficult to rank them all. So I decided on a points system, and created a benchmark presentation. This benchmark presentation has 24 slides, and I provide 5 points for each slide for a total of 120 points.

Benchmark Slide 03  Benchmark Slide 07  Benchmark Slide 09

Benchmark Slide 12  Benchmark Slide 14   Benchmark Slide 16  

Benchmark Slide 18   Benchmark Slide 22   Benchmark Slide 23

And then I provide another 80 points for:

  • Program interface (10 points)
  • Support options (10 points)
  • Output (10 points)
  • LMS options (10 points)
  • Integration with quizzing features (10 points)
  • Output to a non-Flash format (5 points)
  • Output to Flash based screen savers and EXEs (5 points)
  • PowerPoint 2007 compatibility (10 points)
  • Pricing (10 points)

This gets me the score for the product — anything up to 200 points. Then I convert this score to percentage points. Watch out soon to see how the different converter products score.

And the benchmark presentation is not available as a free download now, although you can request access through the feedback form.
