importing a Powerpoint presentation into Storyline

Nov 19, 2012

Our current process is importing Powerpoint presentation into Storyline. One of the reasons we do this, is that we use Powerpoint as our storyboard. Is their an option in Storyline to create a Storyboard besides, publishing to Word?

Also, if there are other members of the group, who Import Powerpoint presentation into Storyline, how does the finished product look? Can you fully utilize all the Storyline features or are you hampered? Do you feel it would just be easier creating the presentation in Storyline? For example, could you add text variables to an imported Powerpoint presentation.

Hi April, and welcome to the Heroes Community

I mostly import a PowerPoint presentation, then keep it in an "Inspiration Scene".

Many features do not translate 1:!, (animations for example), but I use the .ppt/.pptx file as the "spirit" of the Storyline file, and then pretty much build from scratch.

Once again, welcome to this vibrant community, and hope to see you around.
