OT: free PPT to video converter

Today's freebie on Giveaway of the Day is Moyea's PPT to Video Converter.
I just tried it on a PPS file (with a lot of useless transitions) and it converted to an AVI that I dropped onto Vegas and played back successfully.
Export file types are:
AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV, 3GP, 3G2, MPG, VOB, FLV, DV. You can also convert a PowerPoint presentation to video for playback on portable devices like: iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Zune Movie (*.wmv or *.mp4), Xbox 360 Video (*.wmv), Pocket PC Movie (*.wmv), Creative Zen Player Video (*.avi), Blackberry Video (*.3gp;*.3g2;*.mp4;*.avi;*.wmv).
As of this moment, it's only available for another 17 hr. so, if you need something like this, grab it while you can.
Check the site daily as they have some useful programs every so often.

Thanks for the heads up. I am sure it will be useful along the way.

However, you do need to have a copy of MS PowerPoint running on the same PC.

If you were thinking of running this software, 'cos a client sent you a PPT file 'cos you said: "Yes I can!" BUT you DON'T have PP on your machine WITH this convertor - no dice. It does stipulate this in the downloaded support info.

Pity, 'cos I can really imagine many videographers and editors out there, may have MS WORD and but NOT the additional stuff that comes with MS Office. Interesting . . . . .

I wonder if this will run with the Microsoft freeware powerpoint viewer? I'd guess so, but haven't tried it.

Mike, is it more of a screen-cap kinda' thing, or more of an export-stills-and-stitch kinda' thing?
