    Default powerpoint to DVD converter

    I am wanting to convert a powerpoint presentation to DVD format for viewing on television, is there any simple free software available to do this. I need to keep the background music as well as the transitions in place and formated. Thanks in advance for any help

    In Powerpoint (Office 08) select

    File > Save As Movie...

    Then select any option you need. This will save the presentation as a .mov file. This format is called a 'Quicktime Movie'. If your version of Powerpoint doesn't have the Save as Movie option, select Save As.. and select a .mov file type.

    Open this .mov file in iDVD - it should allow you to then burn it to a DVD in the correct format (sorry, I haven't used iDVD so I can't help with these details).
