Inserting Flash Into PowerPoint

  1. 1. How to Insert Flash into your PowerPoint Presentation
  2. 2. • You can only insert .swf files • You should create a folder on your desktop that contains your PowerPoint document and the .swf file. i.e., C:Documents and Settingscomputer nameDesktopfile name.swf • Remember the path – you will need it later
  3. 3. • On the “Developer” tab, go to “Controls” group • Click the icon of hammer and nail for “More Controls”
  4. 4. • On the “More Controls” window scroll down and select “Shockwave Flash Object” in the list • Click “OK” at the bottom • You will get a “+” on your screen. Position it on the slide, hold down the left mouse and make a shape which your flash will be positioned in (can be resized later)
  5. 5. • Right click the control (box) you draw • Click “Properties” in the right-click menu • Go to the “Properties” window
  6. 6. • On the alphabetic tab, click the “Movie” property • Type the full drive path in the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), i.e., C:a.swf) • To make the Flash play automatically when the slide is displayed, set the “Playing” property to “True“ • To embed the Flash into PowerPoint, set “Embed Movie” property to “True” (it doesn’t truly embed - more on that later)
  7. 7. • Finally close the “Properties” window and save your presentation • NOTE: You cannot view the .swf file until you go to slide show
  8. 8. FYI • The file doesn’t truly embed so if you are going to play the PowerPoint file with the flash inserted onto another computer, you must change the path name in the Properties dialogue box on the flash slide – Copy the folder (with your deck and the .swf file) onto the computer – Right click on the drawn object – Select “Properties” – Replace the computer name with the new computer name. C:Documents and Settings computer nameDesktopfile name.swf. Everything else should remain the same – You should also double-check that “Playing” is set to “True” (It sometimes reverts back to false)
