How to insert flash to power point and keynote

  1. 1. How to Insert Flash to PowerPoint and Keynote
  2. 2. PowerPoint and Keynote are the most commonly used office software to make slideshows for presentation or else. When giving a presentation, the use of video is an important trick to attract audience. Thus, we always need to insert videos into PPT or Keynote, and Flash video is one of the most popular components. This step-by-step article describes how to add a Macromedia Shockwave Flash to a PPT or Keynote slide to play a Flash file (*.swf) during a slide show.
  3. 3. How to Insert Flash SWF to PPT PowerPoint 2007 Make sure that the Flash Player is installed on the computer. Then, follow these steps: 1. In PowerPoint, display in normal view the slide on which you want to play the animation. 2. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click PowerPoint Options. 3. Click Popular, and then click to select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box under Top options for working with PowerPoint, and then click OK. 4. On the Developer tab, click More Controls in the Controls group.
  4. 4. 5. In the list of controls, click Shockwave Flash Object, click OK, and then drag on the slide to draw the control. 6. Resize the control by dragging the sizing handles. 7. Right-click the Shockwave Flash Object, and then click Properties. 8. On the Alphabetic tab, click the Movie property. 9. In the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), type the full drive path, including the file name (for example, C:MyFile.swf) or uniform resource locator (URL) to the Flash file that you want to play.
  5. 5. PowerPoint 2010 Note: PowerPoint 2010 now has direct support for Flash (*.swf) and inserting videos from websites that make use of embed code, such as YouTube. You need to have Adobe Flash Player installed and this is only supported on 32-bit version of Office 2010 and PowerPoint 2010. Make sure that the Flash Player is installed on the computer. Then, follow these steps: 1. In PowerPoint, display in normal view the slide on which you want to play the animation. 2. Click File, and then click Options. 3. Click Customize Ribbon, and then check the check box labeled Developer in the right list, and then click OK.
  6. 6. 4. On the Developer tab, click the More Controls button in the Controls group. 5. In the list of controls, click Shockwave Flash Object, click OK, and then drag on the slide to draw the control. 6. Resize the control by dragging the sizing handles. 7. Right-click the Shockwave Flash Object, and then click Properties. 8. On the Alphabetic tab, click the Movie property. 9. In the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), type the full drive path, including the file name (for example, C:MyFile.swf) or uniform resource locator (URL) to the Flash file that you want to play.
  7. 7. PowerPoint 2003 and Lower For PPT 2003 and lower, the method is quite complicated and not easy to operate. You can refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291875 for detailed description. Personally speaking, if you want to insert SWF to PPT 2003 or lower version, I recommend you to use a SWF to WMV Converter to convert SWF to WMV and then insert the WMV video to PPT instead.
  8. 8. How to Insert Flash SWF to Keynote Not like the MS PowerPoint, Keynote does not support inserting SWF files since Mac-based software don't support Flash. Therefore, if you want to insert SWF files to Keynote, you need to convert SWF to MOV for Keynote accepts QuickTime video formats. After the conversion completed, you will be able to import the converted flash SWF to Keynote and play on it.
