This tutorial will show you how to insert a Flash movie into your PowerPoint 2007 presentation.
Flash movies are animations and are created primarily in the program Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash), but other programs also have the capability of saving or exporting their finished products in a Flash movie format. These Flash movie files are typically small file sizes so they are perfect to use in PowerPoint 2007 presentations and on Web sites.
Special thanks to Sandi Bumstead for the idea, her expertise, and the sample Flash movie used in this article.
Note - It is very important that all components of your PowerPoint 2007 presentation are located in the same folder. If necessary, copy your Flash movie to the same folder that contains your PowerPoint presentation.
- Open an existing PowerPoint presentation or start a new presentation.
- Navigate to the slide that will contain your Flash movie.
- Click on the Developer tab of the ribbon.
- In the Controls section of the ribbon, click on the More Controls button (it looks like a hammer and wrench).
