PowerPoint to Flash


I'm looking for a good tool that will convert PowerPoint presentations to single flash files (and can handle the transitions and any animations).

There appear to be quite a lot and I have tried demos of a number including products at, and . Breeze is far to expensive.

I would like to be able to e-mail my presentations to attendees after courses and the flash file route gives them a much smaller file to receive and me marginally more security on my information.

Has anyone any experience of using any of these products that they would be willing to share?

  1. Do you need flash
    Articulate seems to be winning all the prizes e.g. Brandon Hall gold etc.

    I downloaded a demo and ended up with 100s of files, where I had hoped for just one.

    So what I use now is Impatica which creates one file plus an html link and a java player. Personally I find this a lot neater plus it compresses files by around 95%.

  2. Email & Flash Don’t Mix
    If you are looking to email content to delegates I would suggest that you DON’T use Flash – this format is often blocked by IT or Outlook or Firewalls or all three.

    Why not go for a product that allows you to upload your content and give delegates usernames and passwords to the site – you could also include knowledge assessments and online questionnaires (happy sheets). This way you add value to delegates and their managers as you can give feedback on how successful the programme actual is.

  3. tool i have used
    I’ve used a product called Content Point from Atlantic Link in nottingham.

    It compresses the PowerPoint by a factor of ten to one, and generates small courses that can be emailed.
