Converting from SWF files

Nov 04, 2013

I have SWF files that I am trying to get into PowerPoint and ultimately use in Articulate. Is there a way to convert AND save into PowerPoint?

Hi Jessica and welcome to Heroes!

Is there a reason you're looking to convert it? You can insert an SWF into Presenter as is, and you'll see described in this tutorial, there are two ways to insert SWF files into a course, and each has its own benefits. The method you choose depends on whether you want the SWF file to be synchronized with the slide or if you want it to play independently of the slide. Here's how to decide:

  • If your SWF file is a movie that requires no interaction from learners, insert it as a video. This synchronizes it with the slide's timeline.
  • If your SWF file contains interactive elements, insert it as a Flash file as described below. This plays your SWF fileindependently of the slide's timeline, so learners can proceed at their own pace.
