10 Easy Steps to Make A Powerpoint Video

If you are a VA like me, then you can learn this task from this post and add this in your service list.

It took a while for me and my little niece to find a quick and easy way to make use of her four ppt slides and the audio files that we recorded in my laptop. You can find the video here in youtube. Though we didn't make a professional looking video yet, we are well on our way.

Step 1: Once your ppt slides are ready to be saved, click "Save As" and select "Windows Media Video" from the drop-down menu.

Step 2: If you are looking for a very simple way to record your narration then you can use your laptop microphone or your smartphone to record and save the audio files.

Step 3: You can make use of the Windows Movie Maker to mix the video file and the audio files. OR you can download the free video editing software "Videopad Video Editor" and install it on your computer. This is what we used to make our video.

Step 4: Open Videopad Video Editor and click on the "open" icon and choose the saved .wmv file. You will see your video file in the below mini 'Video Files' tab.

Step 5: Click on 'Audio Files' tab and then "Open" to add the saved audio files. You will see the audio files in the below mini tab of  'Audio Files'

Step 6: Drag and drop the video file in the Video Track of the "Timeline" as shown in the image below.

Step 7: Drag and drop the audio files, in their corresponding sequence, in the Audio Track of the "Timeline" as shown in the image below.

Step 8: Now, all you have to do is to play by clicking on the "Play" button to adjust the audio files to match the time sequence of the video files. You can play around by adjusting the video and audio files a bit to bring it to your satisfaction.

Step 9: Once you are satisfied with the video, save it as .mp4. You will be asked to choose the file format, resolution and maximum frame rate. If you knew about these formats, you can choose your own. Else, I recommend you to choose the ones that I have shown in this image below.

Step 10: After clicking on "Create" button in the above window, wait for the video settings to be applied and the video file is ready to open. You can open the video file in any of the media player.

Good luck with your video-making efforts using your ppt presentation and the voice narration. If you want to share your video-making experiences using any other video editing software other than this, then please leave your thoughts in the comments.
