    Hi all,

    I'm hoping that someone might have some insight into this subject. I'l try to make the question as simple as possible.

    Currently, I have been creating online training videos using PowerPoint 2010 . This version has the ability to save a PP presentation to a Windows Media Video. I create the slides, and then record a narration with each slide.

    The quality is fine, and it works just as it says. However, even with my home computer that is 4GB RAM, Windows 7, etc, etc, it takes about 1/2 hour to save it as a WMV. Also, the file ends up being about 120Mb in size (for a 30min video). Now, that's not to bad. Except that I'm doing this for a client at work and when I use my (older) laptop, it takes about 3 hours to save it as a WMV.

    My question...is there another, more efficient way, to convert a PowerPoint file as a video? Or am I thinking about this the wrong way entirely. Perhaps there is another way to get to the end result? Maybe there is inexpensive software that produces the same product? Or an online service with subscription?
