looks like it does video + audio + ppt slides
The BMRC has been doing some work with
Synchronized PowerPoint plus video using RealVideo with
a tool called
which was developed by Brian Smith's group at Cornell.

These presentations have timelines with the slide timings shown. You can
also jump around between different slides, either with the video still
playing, or with the video synchronized to the slides.
How to use the Berkeley Media Resource Center Real/PPT Tools
Examples are at
Visual Basic program that will start PowerPoint and capture the slide
FIXME: What is the redistribution policy of this software?
- Unzip the file in
- Go to
d:\Program Files\BMRC, create a short cut for
TestOpenPPTAPPProj.exe and add it to your start
FIXME: we should have an installer do this for us.
TestOpenPPTAPPProj.exe and modify the
'Presentation to Open' to point to your presentation
Select a 'Path to Store TimeStamp Information' and then
press 'Load Presentation, Start Timestamping'
FIXME: eventually, we would like to have a file that
we could click on that would automatically load a particular
ppt file and start it up in slide show mode.
- A file with a name like
will be created with the timestamps in the format:
"FirstSlideShown: img001.gif At: 22:01:49"
"img001.gif TO: img002.gif At: 22:01:50"
"img002.gif TO: img003.gif At: 22:01:50"
"img003.gif TO: img004.gif At: 22:01:51"
"img004.gif TO: img005.gif At: 22:01:51"
"img005.gif TO: img006.gif At: 22:01:51"
"img006.gif TO: img007.gif At: 22:01:51"
"img007.gif TO: img008.gif At: 22:01:52"
"img008.gif TO: img007.gif At: 22:01:53"
"img007.gif TO: img006.gif At: 22:01:53"
"img006.gif TO: img007.gif At: 22:01:54"
"img007.gif TO: img008.gif At: 22:01:54"
"img008.gif TO: img009.gif At: 22:01:54"
"img009.gif TO: img010.gif At: 22:01:55"
"img010.gif TO: img011.gif At: 22:01:55"
"img011.gif TO: img012.gif At: 22:01:55"
- Convert the powerpoint talk to gifs:
File->Save As->Select gif in the 'Save as type' entry field
FIXME: Powerpoint 2000 saves the file with the name
SlideN.gif instead of
so we will need a small script to change the names
FIXME: Ideally, we could extend TestOpenPPTAPPProj so that
it will save the gifs automatically with the right names.
We would also like to generate PDF at the same time if possible.
The idea is that we would have a common set of settings
that would be used for each talk.
