    Default The toughest question ever - how to convert animated slides to still jpeg images?

    This is a puzzle yet to be solved by anyone in the entire computing world.

    I have an animated PowerPoint presentation.

    I need to create jpeg images of every frame in the presentation to show the
    animated build up across multiple jpeg images.

    For example I have 1 PPT slide with 5 stages of animated build up - I need
    to create 5 jpeg images.

    Does anyone have a solution for how to create the jpeg images other than
    taking screen shots of every single page?

    Hope you can help, for centuries this problem has gone unanswered.....

    Its very easy as you said you have 5 page PPT so use Printscreen button to capture the image.

    That is what I thought to be honest, but didn't think it woul really be that simple as I don't use powerpoint that often.

    I principle it is very simple to save a .ppt or .pptx as .jpeg - you just "save as Type .jpeg" - the whole file or an individual frame. Problem are the animations. Those are PP internal and not seperate frames. I don`t think one can extract them easily. Even uploading this slide show test ( Power Point color fading on Vimeo ) to Authorstream (which is a PP upload site) did not work. They could not convert the animations correctly. I had to capture it as a video to be properly shown.
    If the OP really finds a way to do it, I would be interested to know how. The program that Cithel posted seems to do the same thing that you can do with PP Save as....

    Sorry I misunderstood what you wanted to do. For some reason I thought that you wanted to export a bunch of slides as a batch job.

    If I'm correctly understanding what you want, there is a method for doing this but it isn't a one step process. I've never seen a PowerPoint animation frame grabber. But I have seen a flash frame grabber.

    Anyway, using PowerPoint to Flash you can convert the animations to a flash file and then using FLASH to JPG Converter you can create jpgs of each frame in the flash file.

    Its a kludge but it might work...

    I'm trying hard to get that "toughest question ever" line on my resume If it doesn't work I'm out of ideas.
