    To get the movie to resize with the browser, set the width and height parameters of the Flash object (in the HTML) to 100%. This will cause it to resize with the browser, regardless of screen...

    Howdy,

    It's entirely possible. Using fscommand and the VBA behind the slide, Flash can force Powerpoint to jump to certain slides, advance the slide show, rewind the Flash movie, close the slide...

    Howdy,

    A number of tools have been released, as of late, to help manage this conversion more effectively. I've not had the opportunity to try any of them, so I'll just provide the list:

    egriss,

    It's possible to insert the movie into Powerpoint. However, Powerpoint does not support the transparent feature of the Active X control.

    Howdy,

    It's also important to note that you can control Powerpoint from Flash and vice versa, using fscommand.

    Hope that helps,

    While it is fairly easy to get the movie into Powerpoint, it's sure to misbehave once you have it in there.
