I was checking some how to videos on creating Flash movies from ppts. Several of them suggested this software. Luckily my friend has it. I loved it. I just had to go through some online tutorials and expert advice. It is easy to use and effective.

Alexey Malov, thank you for checking on this page from time to time and helping those of us that run into complications. That says a lot for you and your company. A big "thank you" to iSpring and GOTD for making this available! I found it just in time before the deadline so I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it sounds very handy and it installed without any problems on my XP Pro SP2.

To all who asks:
This software requires MS PowerPoint. Why is it a requirement?

iSpring (like many other PPT to Flash converters on the market) uses some PowerPoint facilities to get the information about presentation content. It simplifies the development since parsing poorly documented binary PPT file format is a quite challenging task. PowerPoint objects rendering without help of PowerPoint is also challenging task.

There are hundreds of millions of people in the world who have PowerPoint installed. They don't care if PowerPoint to Flash converters require PowerPoint or not - they expect their presentation to be converted to Flash perfectly.

This product doesn't work with Open Office. What shall I do?
The fact is iSpring is a MS PowerPoint add-in and doesn't work in Open Office. PowerPoint and Impress are different products and their add-ins are not compatible.
But don't give up!. Impress can export its document as PPT format. You can still upload the resulting PPT file to slideboom.com where it will be converted to Flash. Then, you can embed it into your web site or blog.

Open Office can export presentations to Flash. And it is free.
Yes, that's true. If your presentations doesn't contain animations and sounds/videos, the SWF export feature of the open office will suit you well. Otherwise you can take a look at free desktop and online alternatives, for example:

iSpring Free
AuthorPoint Lite
SlideBoom.com
SlideShare.net

or even commercial ones.

I have vs. 3.1 installed from a prior GAOTD. Can I also now install 3.5, or do I have to uninstall 3.1 first? I'm afraid if I don't uninstall vs. 3.1, than 3.5 might be treated as an "upgrade" and then maybe revert to a 30 day trial status. Does anyone know the answer?

@86 allthumbz

- after the first slide, iSpring Pro slightly broke up the PowerPoint template’s background graphics (I can capture the screen and email my example to you, if you wish)


We will highly appreciate if you send us a sample presentation that illustrates the problem. You can send it to support[at]ispringsolutions.com and mark your message as: "Please forward this to Alexey".

- viewing the Flash output in my browser, when I clicked on any Web link created in the iSpring settings, it tried to search for the Web site locally on my hard drive. (I tried again, this time adding the http:// in front of http://www... and that solved this issue but should that really be necessary?)


Thank you for this notice. Sometimes http:// is necessary to avoid ambiguity. For example, there can be a file "something.doc" in the same folder where your Flash presentation is published. Turning it into the http://something.doc is wrong. Anyway, thanks for the comment, we will think on this issue and find a solution how to make it better.

- narration I recorded in PowerPoint (set to Auto Change with the slides) did not play in Flash file; I tried changing the setting from Force bitrate to Keep original bitrate and the resulting Flash file was 40% larger but still no sound; then I chose the option to detach the audio - a data folder was created with Flash sound files in it but they played no sound.


Make sure you are not using the "Banner" player template. Banner template uses a lightweight playback core with no sounds and slide transitions support. If you need to export the presentation without UI, use the "None" player (it has sound support). If the problem still exists we will appreciate if you send us your presentation along with the problematic sound files.

- when I chose iSpring Pro’s Advanced player and clicked the Customize button, nothing happened


Skin customization requires Flash Player ActiveX component to be installed. You can install it by opening the following link in Internet Explorer: http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash Please use just IE (not Firefox/Opera/Safari) since IE is the only web browser that uses ActiveX version of the Flash player. If this problem still exists, you may contact our technical support at the e-mail address in the beginning of my comment.

Easy activation and install on Vista Business. Integrated well with PPT - great skins for player.

Tried it on one presenation I had that used 'Appear' Entry Effect but these did not translate into the Flash Version.

Fast conversion process to Flash

Overall - a great piece of software, when I get the effects worked out

@88 I tried to install this on my Pentium 3 with Windows 2000sp4, IE6 SP1 (Directx9) with all updates installed, and halfway through the install I get the error:
c:\program files\commmon files\cps labs ltd\activeswf 2 oem\activeswf.dll
unable to register the DLL/OCX: Regsvr32 failed with exit code 0×3


It seems that Windows Media Format runtime is not installed on you Win2000. If so, you need to install it in order to install iSpring:

@78 I have converted a presentation and everytime the flash movie tries to open it says it need Adobe flash player 7 and up.

You need Adobe Flash Player browser plugin. To install it open the following link in your favorite web browser:
http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash and follow the instructions on Adobe page. After this you will be able to open Flash presentations in the web browser. The Generate HTML option will make the presentation opened in a web browser.

You can also generate your presentation in .EXE format - this will make it work on any windows based PC with no need to install Flash player.

No use to me so no doubt a screensaver is due as well :-(

Seriously though, Again this is a software for the few not the many so most will not give it the thumbs up.

It's bad enough having M$ Windows on computers without giving a program that requires M$ Office to be installed as well!!

Sure I have my copy but leave it uninstalled as there's better out there to use.
Not GOTD's fault of course but perhaps a software every visitor (Well almost) Can use would be good?

Quick note for those with activation problems.

If you had previously activated iSpring 3.1, it uses a different name & registration key than today's offer. So, if you have any installation management software, or multiple user accounts, or Vista, or depending on security settings, you may actually be prevented from properly updating the registry when running Activate today (it may revert back to the old settings). When you try to change an existing set of values, depending on system load, Windows sometimes can end up in a deadlock situation and the update does not happen within the time you need it to be within.

I will not post the information for manually changing the registry as that is against Giveaway Of The Day's policies.

I manually deleted the pertinent old registry values before running Activate this time, to prevent the possibilty of such a problem. This would not be a recommend task for anybody who does not understand the registry (probably about 70% of the visitors here).

Thanks for the update!

I've used this PowerPoint plug-in for over a year now-- it does exactly what it says, and it does it well. If you're using MS Office, grab this one! It shows up as a nice tab in Office 2007, and is very easy to use.

For those complaining that it doesn't work with OpenOffice, it's true. And, the SWF conversion in OO Impress isn't going to give you anything even close to what iSpring will do with a PowerPoint.

Thanks GAOTD! I have the free iSpring on my laptop, but I'll replace it with this!

Hi,
I tried to install this on my Pentium 3 with Windows 2000sp4, IE6 SP1 (Directx9) with all updates installed, and halfway through the install I get the error:

c:\program files\commmon files\cps labs ltd\activeswf 2 oem\activeswf.dll
unable to register the DLL/OCX: Regsvr32 failed with exit code 0x3
Abort retry ignore

I tried to quit all programs and try again. Also tried to manually unreg and reg the dll with regsvr32 and it gives the error:
"the specified module could not be found" on both /U and no switch even though I am right in that folder and the DLL is there.

also tried uninstalling, running advanced windowscare then rebooting, reinstall. didn't work. also tried disabling antivirus and firewall.

I am logged in an admin account.

Thanks

Ron (17), there is only one PowerPoint and it is from Microsoft. OpenOffice has its own presentation software (Impress) that is comparable and compatible with PowerPoint but it's not PowerPoint. Just like all copiers aren't Xerox machines and all PDAs (even all Palm PDAs) aren't Palm Pilots.

Computermom (77), if your presentation is setup to play according to your timing, try adjusting the iSpring settings under Playback and Navigation. The Flash files can play automatically.

To all who have complained about non-support for OpenOffice Impress. I have OpenOffice installed but rarely create presentations. So I was unaware of this but, according to OpenOffice, Impress already has the ability to create Flash files: Read toward the bottom

Alexey, you appear to be from iSpring so I direct my observations to you:

- after the first slide, iSpring Pro slightly broke up the PowerPoint template's background graphics (I can capture the screen and email my example to you, if you wish)

- viewing the Flash output in my browser, when I clicked on any Web link created in the iSpring settings, it tried to search for the Web site locally on my hard drive. (I tried again, this time adding the http:// in front of www... and that solved this issue but should that really be necessary?)

- links within the PowerPoint presentation worked fine

- PowerPoint animations worked fine

- narration I recorded in PowerPoint (set to Auto Change with the slides) did not play in Flash file; I tried changing the setting from Force bitrate to Keep original bitrate and the resulting Flash file was 40% larger but still no sound; then I chose the option to detach the audio - a data folder was created with Flash sound files in it but they played no sound.

- when I chose iSpring Pro's Advanced player and clicked the Customize button, nothing happened

- iSpring zipped its output with no problem

Overall, I like today's giveaway and hope my issues can be resolved.

Installed no problems but have yet to test in PPT. Unlike many who cannot seem to find a use for this, I will. As a volunteer computer tutor and involved in social and church groups that require some educational input, this peeks my interest. I might even try it on my personal web page. Keep the comments coming. Even the negatives help me decide if something is useful and thanks to GAOTD and submitters.

OpenOffice.org already exports directly to .swf format, so you can create a presentation (or I think any doc) in OpenOffice, or read a .PPT in OpenOffice and then export to .swf directly.

There are also a number of totally free .ppt to .swf apps, as well as a few online services which allow you to convert and use any way you like, even commercially, though I think for heavy duty commerical use you might want a locally installed product, not an online service, and especially for company confidential information and intellectual property you wuld absolutely not want to use a web service where you have no control.

#17. OpenOffice.org is not actually a free version of MS Office. It is a separate office suite that is compatible with MS Office files...as well as other suites, such as Lotus, WordPerfect, etc.

The presentation software in OpenOffice.org already has the ability to output a presentation in the flash (*.SWF) format. It will also output PDF documents * HTML web pages as well. And it does all of this for free. There is even a portable version that can be carried on a USB stick at www.portableapps.com.

Downloaded with no problems, nice intuitive interface. The conversion keeps the slide transitions and animations (although you have to click on the slide to activate). I sent the Flash file by e-mail as a standalone executable file, also used it to create an html page. Very versatile. I also like that you can add references with links, and that you can see notes. Very well done!

Dear #21- I'm a home user who loves to make slide shows using PowerPoint. It's quite easy and it's a fun way to show my pictures, etc. People can abstract any pictures they want from it as singles. I time the slides to run at certain rates for certain parts. Having the option to use Flash will add a nice polish. I'm going to start playing with it now. Maybe you should broaden your client base.

Can you download this software and THEN get MS Powerpoint, or does Powerpoint have to be in place before today's GAOTD offering is downloaded and registered?

I understand that iSpring is a Powerpoint plugin, but I want to know if I'm wasting my time downloading this iSpring software without Powerpoint on my computer. I'd like to buy Powerpoint later, and then use the iSpring plugin with it.

Powerpoint won't even load it up after crashing once. I try to re-enable it, and it tells me that the registry key can't be changed.

It's a shame, too, because it seems like a really nice program!

FYI -- if you want to put your fully animated, personal PPT online, try Slideboom rather than Slideshare (which does not seem to preserve the animations). They even offer a link to the free version of iSpring for anyone who missed this giveaway.
