PowerPoint 2010: Converting Presentations to Movies

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In previous versions of PowerPoint, converting presentations to movies  could be a bit of a laborious task. You won't be clicking your mouse to continue the presentation once it is a movie and you may find that the default transition time goes too fast (or not fast enough) for your liking. Using this method will allow you to make a movie from your presentation in which the video will play. by AJ George.

Articulate: A Complete 360

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

You can continue using the desktop version of Storyline 2 and Studio '13, but don't expect any future upgrades to these tools. However, there are some additional features in the 360 version. If you upgrade a project from Storyline 2 to 360, there's no going backward to version 2. This can be a major issue if you share files with other developers or content creators who cannot or will not upgrade from version 2 to 360.
