Step 1: Make a Video File From Your PowerPoint Presentation
The first step is to turn your PPTX into a video file. To do this, you’ll use a built-in option in the PowerPoint app. Follow the section below for your specific operating system, and you’ll have your presentation’s video file ready.
- Open your presentation in PowerPoint. Then, in the app’s top-left corner, click “File.”
- From the left sidebar, select “Export.”
- On the right pane, choose “Create a Video.”
On the far right pane, you’ll see a “Create a Video” section. Here, click the first drop-down menu and choose “Full HD.” This ensures your video file is high-quality. You can choose a lower resolution if you want to save storage, but that’ll degrade your video quality too.
- Next up, in the “Seconds Spent on Each Slide” box, enter the amount of time for which a slide is played in your video. The default is 5 seconds, and you can change this to anything you want.
- After configuring those options, click “Create Video” to start making your video file.
- An “Export Video” window will open. Here, choose the folder to save your video file in, and click “Export.”
- In PowerPoint’s bottom bar, you’ll see the video making status. When this finishes, your video file will be ready.
Step 2: Burn Your PowerPoint Video to a DVD
- Now that you have your PowerPoint presentation converted to a video file, let’s burn this video to a DVD.
- Start by inserting a blank DVD into your computer’s DVD writer. In your screen’s bottom-right corner, you’ll see a prompt. Click it.
- In the menu that opens, choose “Burn Files to Disc.”
- A “Burn a Disc” window will launch. Here, click the “Disc Title” field and enter a name for your disc. Then, choose the “With a CD/DVD Player” option and click “Next.” (Choosing this option ensures your disc plays on many media players out there.)
- You’ll see a File Explorer window. Here, drag the PowerPoint video file you created earlier, and Windows will burn it on your disc.
