Unlock the Potential of Your Presentations with Import From PPT

It’s no secret that videos perform better. But concerns around the time, effort, knowledge, and money required to produce a high quality video are what often stop us from creating said videos. That’s exactly where Import from PPT can be your handy little helper.

Using this feature doesn’t require:

  • large budgets
  • hiring a crew
  • hiring presenters
  • any prior video production knowledge
  • lighting, mic, and other expensive shoot equipment
  • long hours spent in shooting and editing

The Import from PPT feature analyzes the content and structure of your slides, infusing them with a new dimension of visual storytelling. It reimagines your static slides into dynamic video frames, breathing fresh life into your presentation. It's like giving your ideas a vibrant canvas to paint upon, enabling you to communicate your message with impact and flair.

Here’s how you can Convert a PPT into a Video Presentation

Beyond visually captivating slides, Import from PPT recognizes the importance of captivating your audience's senses. It seamlessly integrates music, voiceovers, and sound effects into your video presentation, transforming it into a multisensory experience.

The combination of stunning visuals with the perfect soundtrack elevates your presentation to new heights, creating an immersive journey that enthralls your viewers and keeps them engaged throughout.

Step 1: Keep your PPT handy

You might already have a PPT that you want to convert into a video presentation. Else, prepare a PPT. Go about it as you usually would – no tricks here!

Step 2: Upload the PPT on Rephrase Studio

Navigate to the ‘Import from PPT’ feature on Rephrase Studio and upload your PPT.

Step 3: Adjust the generated video frames

Once your PPT is uploaded, it’ll be converted into video frames. If you have 12 slides in your PPT, you’ll see 12 video frames generated. Each element – text, images, AI avatar – can be adjusted in each frame.

See if you’d like to make any adjustments. You might want to change the position of the AI avatar auto-inserted into the video frames or you might want to resize any particular image. It’s up to you to decide.

Pro tip: If you’re super happy and confident with your PPT, you need not worry too much about making adjustments here. Just focus on how you’d like the AI avatar to appear!

Step 4: Pick your favorite AI avatar

Building on the last pro tip, pick an AI avatar to present the contents in your video presentation. With over 30+ AI avatars available, you can make your video presentation more diverse and inclusive – making it relatable and relevant to both regional and global audiences.

Step 5: Choose the right language and accent

We understand that not all presentations would be in English. This is why you can choose the language and accent for an AI avatar that best fits your needs.

Step 6: Add your script

While your presentation slides – which are now video frames – will have content on what you want to talk about, adding a proper script will help you explain each and every element of your PPT easily. It’ll be like giving a TED Talk to an audience without actually having to be there in person!

If you’re just getting started with writing scripts, here are a few tips for you:

  • Keep it conversational
  • Write like you’d speak
  • Avoid technical jargon
  • Add pauses between sentences
  • Use simple vocabulary
  • 5-6 sentences per video frame

Pro tip: To create a captivating ambience for your viewers, add some music at low volume to your video. It’ll ensure intrigue while not overpowering your AI avatar’s speech.

Step 7: Hit Export!

Once you’re confident with everything, can you export your work to get the final video. The tool allows you to export your creation as a high-quality video file, ready to be shared across platforms and devices. Whether you're presenting at a virtual conference, pitching a business idea, or delivering educational content, your video presentation will leave a lasting impression, setting you apart as a captivating storyteller and expert in your field.

Pro tip: When exporting, you will get the option to add captions to your video. It’s a good idea to switch this ON to make your video presentation more accessible for all audiences.
