Flash movies?Views: 643

Hello Everyone,

I'm wondering if someone can point us in the right direction?

Some of you may know about our month long celebration and the huge give-a-way we are doing through a fund raising effort. Another Ryzer, Kathy Browning, has just completed a slide show as a viral marketing tool. We are tryng to figure out:

1. How can we make it load automatically as a slide show?
2. Can we somehow convert it into a flash movie that can be passed around?

Right now, as is, it's a 3MB file which is not good for viral email marketing.

We appreciate any help!

Namaste,

Barbara C. Phillips, NP

Hi Barbara,

What format is the slideshow in now?

I can create Flash movies. As a viral tool, you typically don't want to send that actual file, but rather send a link to the file so dial up customers aren't inconvenienced by a large email attachment.

Barbara,

Scott Stratten, moderator of the Un-Marketing forum, specializes in doing exactly what you're talking about--viral marketing via flash movies.

Might want to check him out. His website is

Good Afternoon,

The slide show is in powerpoint.

We now have it so it loads immediately as a show. It's about 3mb in size and we would like to get it down so it's easily passed around, which is why we thought of flash.

Thanks!

Barbara

Hi Barbara,

If you want a cheap and fast way to convert Powerpoint to Flash, download Open Office ... it is a free office suite compatible with MSOffice formats, but allows you to export Powerpoint to Flash (as well as Word/Excel to PDF). It is a large download, but available for free from www.openoffice.org

The only downside is, the slideshow only progresses when you click on a frame. To create a slideshow that automatically advances, has animations or requires a user interface (i.e. "Next slide" buttons), then you likely want someone who can replicate the Powerpoint presentation in Flash. It's not too big of a job is you're only looking for a basic slideshow and already have a presentation to work from.

Hi Barbara,

Robin Good has an article where he reviews the various tools for converting PowerPoint to Flash.  He also includes pricing.
