Using PowerPoint Slides in a Video Presentation

This is often a problem, because, even though PowerPoint can output JPG files, they look terrible.

I recently completed a job that had over 650 slides from PowerPoint included - 7 hours worth. To say I am experienced with this is an understatement.

One solution is to print the files as Acrobat PDF files. Even though the sildes will be created as JPGs within the PDF, the quality is considerably better.

Another solution is to output to TIFF files; this format is lossless, and has much better output at the expense of file siaze.

However, none of this can work well enough if you don't set the page size properly.
