Is there a way to import native PPT animations into Storyline?

Sep 20, 2013

I'm looking for a way to import the animations that you are able to create in MS PPT into my Storyline project.

Has anyone figured this out?

Hi Jami, not all the animation options in PPT are supported in Storyline. If you are using animations that are supported in Storyline (Fade In, Fade Out, Fly In, Fly Out, Grow, Shrink etc.) then all you have to do is use the Import PowerPoint option in Storyline to import the PPT slide into your project. The PPT animations should carry over to Storyline. 

If you are using things like motion paths or other unsupported animation types in PPT they will not work in Storyline when you import the PPT slides.  In these cases, the only thing I can suggest is that you use the save as video option in PPT (2010 or above) and save the animations as videos and then import them into Storyline as videos.
