Q: Despite following the directions in the “Creating PowerPoint movies” video, the movie of the PowerPoint presentation is very pixelated. Additionally, it does not contain any of the animations. What could be causing this problem?

A: There are some issues with saving a PowerPoint presentation to a movie. For one, animation effects will not appear in your QuickTime movie, nor will sounds associated with animation effects. If you must have animation effects and sounds in your movie, check out Snapz Pro X from Ambrosia Software, Inc., which can record your slideshow as you present it on-screen, with all its animation effects and sounds. Then you can save the recording as a QuickTime movie. Pixelation won't be an issue using Snapz Pro either, as you can set the recording to a higher resolution to match the full-screen version of your slideshow. Unfortunately, this issue has not been rectified in PowerPoint 2011 either. So, for the time being, this try this workaround.
