An easier method of creating the same sort of effect is with Incansoft's GFX video writer. Ideal if you want to make basic presentation style films, for instance to upload to youtube. Very affordable, and quite effective!

Would have been perfect timing if it converted PPT to SWF as I'm pulling my hair out looking for a freebie that does this accurately. Next time.

Downloaded and registered no problem, but when I tried to convert a ppt file, the program hung. Read previous comments here and started powerpoint - got an error message that said "Something wrong with yoru powerpoint" or something like that, anyway, it's a good idea, but it doesn't work and there's not very good support for it at all.

After reading the comments above I've decided to install it.... On a sandbox just out of curiosity to see what it does, well... it doesn't do much, just the powerpoint not found error, I'm not going to expend more time to figure out whats wrong with it.
It Ran on winXp Sp3 with powerpoint installed and working well. I have never had to convert a ptt to video but if someday I have to, I guess I'll just use some screen capturer like snagit, it converts anything to video all by itself, no hassle, no blaming and pointing fingers to other applications that are oK .

Error: Load PPT File(S) Error,Please try again ! Or Your PowerPoint doesn't Work Well!
Tried on 3 different files, always the same error.
Windows 7 Enterprise, MS Office 2010 ProPlus -both 32-bit.
I see huge ammount of people having problems so I assume this software is not good at all. Thumbs down.

"iTopsoft Studio, the world leading consumer software provider, found in 2009"

It doesn't say "world's leading"...

and I do believe most of the world leaders are now in China. I'm sure glad somebody found them.

"We will always uphold "all customer-centric" business philosophy to offer you the most satisfied products and service."


The software they make might be good, but I just won't install anything in my computer where the maker has spent nearly zero effort in customer support. Makes it all too pathetic when they make their customer relation statement in Engrish gibberish.

Thanks GOTD, but perhap someone could at least review their website before promoting a product, and make it a tiny bit palpable.

I've tried to convert is various format and the files are just HUGE and the quality not so great even when converting into HD, and for some reason it doesn't convert the music that is embedded into the PPT
so, not so sure that it's worth it, have to test some more, but as far as installation goes, no problem on Vista.

First GOTD that I have installed that doesn't work (Windows XP SP3, Office 2007 on F drive). On attempting a conversion ZoneAlarm shows that it identifies the correct location of POWERPNT.EXE but then it generates a "Load PPT Files(S) Error,Please try again ! Or your PowerPoint doesn't Work Well !" (sic) message. There's nothing wrong will my installation of Office, the problem lies with iToolSoft PPT to Video.

Not sure if any of you encounter this problem: after installed and uninstalled the useless iToolSoft PPT to Video, all buttons in other programs, for example, in Photoshop when I filtered an image, all buttons (OK button, Cancel button,...) appeared without any text on that!!!

Then I had to use Revo uninstaller to kill all the rubish left, restarted the PC, and it's become normal now. Do not know if that craziness was caused by this software? But definately this program is not recommended.

An alternative is Wondershare PPT2VideoFree (though I still love iSpring [previous GOTD but if you miss it, it's worth buying] to convert PPT to flash, then you can you iWisoft Flash to video when needed.

"iToolSoft PPT to Video Convert PPTs to video formats: AVI, H.264, WMV, MP4, MOV, etc. Convert PPTs to 1080p HD-formats: HD AVI, HD H.264, HD MPEG-2 TS."
They're just talking about media-containers, the only mentioned codec is h.264, which isn't really a codec, but a standard for codecs. Pretty limited? No wait, their site mention mpeg2 too(and mpeg4 but H.264 is a MPEG4 based standard already).

Also their site doesn't mention a word about which codec(s) they use. Do they use system codecs? Do they deliver their own codec? Did they borrow some libraries from existing project?

Also, no word about which versions of Powerpoint are supported.

More information would be appreciated, I mean, there is a Technical section in their knowledge base, but it's empty.

Seems like this prog not independent of powerpoint being installed on your computer therefore powerpoint is a prerequisite. A program like this should be independent and convert ppt files regardless of whether powerpoint is installed or not. Seems to be useless unless it can use powerpoint's drivers or libraries.

Based on the above mixed comments I was reluctant to try this software - HOWEVER I decided I could delete it if it didn't work. It downloaded and installed flawlesly on Win7 64 bit and ran out of the bok without any problems. I converted the sample file and one of my own PPT's without a problem. For me this will work fine - Thanks GOTD.

I installed, activated and regisetered. Tried a few files and I got the message "Load PPT File(s) error, Please try again! Or your Power Point doesn't work well"

My Power Point works well. After opening my Power Point and testing a few files (on one ocassion my PP crashed), I tried converting again and it worked.

Hope this helps those who encounter the same start issue.

I find that your PPT must have large fonts in order for the 'movie' to be able to show the writing clearly.

Installed without any problem on Windows XP Professional SP3 32 bit.

Prompted for register 2 times - when starting the program and then again when starting first conversion of the sample file.
Using profile Avi - DivX Movie, the process took about 3 minutes for the sample.ppt (2.188 kb) to be converted to .avi file (3.6 Mb)

works fine with office 2000 pp on win7 x32. lots of output formats. I do agree the version of office would have been nice to know. it does bring up power point when converting but doesn't need power point when you play it. please remember this is a GIVEAWAY. you didn't layout any MONEY.

#2 Stevieboy, I have checked this site with 2 well-known security companies (Zonealarm and AVG Security) and both say that the host site is completely safe. Concerning WOT, you must realize that it is merely the accumulation of users' perceptions. If something happened to their machine, regardless of the cause, newbies, immature users, etc. can "vote" their opinions. It only takes 1 vote to mark a site unsafe. You can still use WOT if you realize that you must investigate each "bad" site to see why people voted the way they did about a site. By reading their reason for a negative vote, it is often easy to see whether the vote was accurate or not. It's too bad that WOT allows anybody, whether they have any computer or internet knowledge or not, to vote. That's why I don't use it anymore. The AVG Security toolbar is FREE and EXCELLENT. But I do pay for the Zonealarm protection; it comes with my firewall.

This program stinks, and here is why.
First, the company who made it didn't have a good reputation to start with, so after a little bit, I decided to risk it and install.
Install went great. It activated successfully. However, there was a huge problem with the program. And no, it said I had a version of Powerpoint [Microsoft Office 97] and launched. However, I tried to convert their sample file. Ten minutes later and I'm still waiting. So I gave up.
Not only did their reputation suck, their product sucked, too. Thumbs down.

I got 2 or 3 different error messages. Once adding a file and clicking the "play" button, I get a window asking do I want to open or save the ppt file. If I open it, it opens in PP, but if I cancel or click save, it closes the program. I'm trying to convert a 6 Mb ppt file to wmv; Task manager says its running and using 50% cpu but it's been like that for 1/2 hr. The blue progress line has moved about 1/5 the way across and that's as far as any of the 3 files I've tried to convert has moved. Got an error message when I tried to report it! I'll use iSpring and convert to flash and from there I have a number of converters that will convert to whatever.---UNINSTALL!--

Downloaded and installed easily (Vista business 32). I have my Office 2007. After registration and try to open a file, it popped out this message: "I am sorry that Your version of POWERPOINT is too high to be supported by this software ,Please install a lower version and try again or contact the author to update,the software will be closed !". That is the original sentence, with mis-typings! I can't imagine a comercialized product comes with such basic typing errors. Uninstalled.

I still love the iSpring (previous GOTD) that converts PPT to flash in high quality outputs (see my blog http://tuttiitipi.blospot.com). You can then find another program to convert flash to video if you want.

#12 from what I can read you have misquoted their website, the copy and paste quote as of 14:43 GMT is:

"Turn any PowerPoint presentation into video with the need for Microsoft PowerPoint."

Notice it says with the need for ...

The human brain will auto-correct the flawed grammar and add what it optimisticaly would like to see and change the "with" to "without". But we are talking non-english speaking developers here, that may have been their sole disclosure that it needs PowerPoint of some shape or version installed to work. For me I won't bother installing it since I do not know what machine to install it on as there are no specific requirements stated for it... not worth my time! I would rather use a dedicated screen recorder and play a PPT in the powerpoint viewer and record it all in realtime, and resize etc in post production.

Yes, I'm getting similar messages: must have POWERPOINT installed. I have a legal copy.

Yes, I closed my powerpoint application, reinstalled the itools software. Same issues: "must have POWERPOINT installed."

Yes, I ran the powerpoint application while attempting to use the itools software. Same message: "must have POWERPOINT installed".

Went to the itools website - and thought this would be a wonderful prgram. It might be, but likely many of us will never know. Windows 7 bugs? GOTD - you are awesome - this program isn't. It should be deleted until bugs are fixed.

Given that I have office 2010 beta install at deafult location,
The software doesn’t ask you where your powerpoint software is. It comes up with “There is no PPT application in your computer, please install it first!”. Then the software quits working.

#17 read the system requirements:

"System Requirements: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7; Intel or AMD of compatible processors at 1GHz minimum; display graphics minimum resolution of 800*600 32-bit color RAM 128 MB; 30MB space for installation"

There is NO mention or office or power point installation pre-requisit or which verion of the powerpoint API it requiures i.e. 95, 97, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010 or even if it's just the free powerpoint viewer... The fault here is with the vendor not describing their products needs properly. Not impressed.

The output quality is appalling for most formats, particularly .flv which I would have thought would be one of the most useful. Some of the HD ones are passable but I wouldn't want my name associated with them. Overall, very disappointing. I have yet to find one of these that works properly for Powerpoint.

OK, now I've really gone off this application. After my experiences in 16 - where I forgot to mention I got an error message first time around when I hit the processing button and a pop up declared in bad english that my powerpoint file wasn't working. When I tried to open the Power Point file after I had to force the close of Itoolsoft, I got the same error message in the same bad english and the program wouldn't open. PPT has never done that before. When I uninstalled the Itoolsoft program, PowerPoint opened flawlessly.

Not only is Itoolsoft buggy, but it messes with the proper functioning of the Power Point program.

Installed and registered easily. Everytime I open the program, however, I get the error message that Microsoft Power Point Has Crashed. But then the itoolsoft program finishes opens without further dramas. I liked the interface screen which shows the simple steps needed to convert ppt to vid. I soon had the conversation in progress without any trouble. It took a long time to convert a 3 minute vid: roughly 10-12 minutes. The result was fuzzy looking pictures and shocking sound quality. So I changed the settings to original video and sound quality for the next run through. (The default setting is Higher Quality for both. I'd hate to see the result of the lower settings.)

I noticed in the first run through that the CPU was flogging itself at 100% usage. The second time the CPU usage was very low which made me wonder after waiting 30 minutes if anything was happening or if the program had secretly crashed. Admittedly, I saved the second version into the same place as the first one, and I hadn't got a request to overwrite, so perhaps saving the same file name into the same place as a previous one is a no-no with this program.

In any event, I think this software needs more work until it will be really useful.
