How to change video export values in powerpoint 2013

Hi!

 

I have actually asked help for this issue a while ago but since it seems that nobody has been able to help, I will post this question again.

Does enyone know how to change fps and resolution values when exportin presentation into a video with ppt 2013?

The problem is that powerpoint automatically exports the video with 30fps but I want to create the video with 25fps. Another issue is that you can only create resolution up to 720p but I have a need to export as 1080p.

 

Shyam Pillai helped and kindly informed that he has created a video tool add-in for ( http://skp.mvps.org )  ppt2013 for this problem but unfortunatelly this add-in does not work. It causes the powerpoint to crash and advices to deactive this add-in to avoid further problems. So that was an dead end there.

Has enybody else downloaded his add-in and got it working with ppt 2013? If you did, please tell how you managed that?

 

I once saw some forum that told that user can use coding to change these values and ppt would then create the video with wanted values, but I just can't find that information from the web any longer.

 

Please help, this problem is killing me...

Answer
This assumes the presentation in 16:9

Open the vb editor (ALT f11)


INSERT > Module and paste in the code below

Sub MkVideo()
If ActivePresentation.CreateVideoStatus <> ppMediaTaskStatusInProgress Then
ActivePresentation.CreateVideo FileName:=Environ("USERPROFILE") & "\Desktop\test.wmv", _
UseTimingsAndNarrations:=True, _
VertResolution:=1080, _
FramesPerSecond:=25
Else: MsgBox "There is another conversion to video in progress"
End If
End Sub

Go back to the normal edit window VIEW > Macros > Run

It may take quite a while!


The video will be on the desktop called test.wmv

Have a look here:

I posted a few lines of VBA code that will do the video export.

If you start typing the code, you'll see that there are also parameters to control FPS/resolution and so on.
