Please help...I am frustrated!

Greetings, gang! Boy am I exasperated! For the last few days, I have been trying to transfer slide images out of PowerPoint so they can be integrated (as still frames) into Premiere Pro, to support a "talking head" on-camera presenter. I have used every solution I've seen on this and other forums and each time my resultant images are very poor. Camstudio, Camtasia, SnagIt and others...all with the same crappy result. Are there any suggestions that might help? Certainly, I could create graphics from scratch from within the titling facility in Premiere, but thought the other suggestions would work. Not!!!

So I'm putting my plea out to all the experts, gurus and the like on the forum, and I thank you in advance for any help you could offer.

I use File Save as "Jpeg" or in Power Point 2007 .png I think.


Has always look good to me. Even when I blow them up to fill up a full HD video. How complicated are your slides? Most of the ones I use are mainly text but some have had drawings and pictures.

Do you have access to the entire CS package? If so, Premiere likes it best when you run any graphics through Photoshop or Illustrator first. That is, import into one of the Adobe programs and use the "save as" or "export" command to save to the size and format you want, then import the resulting file into Premiere. This is what Adobe recommends.

Also, make sure you are saving to the right resolution -- preferably the same as your project. Don't go bigger -- Premiere hates this.

How are the images "poor"? Can you post a screenshot?

Hello,

We have the same problem with power point slides...what we found out is that the free OpenOffice suite offers better quality when exporting the slides. So open the power point document with OpenOffice and export from there, play a little and you find it gives better quality.
