Powerpoint to DVD

I did a search but surprisingly didn't find anything on this: does anyone know how to take a Powerpoint (.ppt) file and get it onto a DVD? I've tried using my computer's composite out, recording to my computer and recapturing as DV but the image just looked to blurry. Does anyone know of any free technology that allows you to turn a Powerpoint file into an avi or mpeg? It's fine with me if it's done in realtime.

Composite video isn't going to give you very good results for anything unfortunately. You might try component video if you have that capability. Otherwise you'll need some sort of scan converter (hardware or software) as discussed in the threads above.

Wow, I don't know how I missed those! I must've been too specific with my search or something.

Thanks, Boyd!

Let me share my expirience with you.

After converting many PowerPoint presentations, I have yet to find an application that combines all the features I want into a package that's priced in a budget that makes sense for most projects. The plug-in solutions generally copy most parts of a PowerPoint slideshow while failing to capture some transitions and completely bypassing any imbedded video, which is what makes screen recording an attractive alternative. For the best in class for the plug-in solutions, the Presentations to Video Converter app does the best job I've seen for a fairly pricey $199. One advantage to this app is the ability to convert PPT slideshows with or without PowerPoint installed on the converting PC.
And also there is feature to burn PowerPoint presentation to DVD, which is fery useful now for everyone.
