Play A Flash Animation In Powerpoint

Flash Animation

Flash player is helpful in playing moving objects and animations at any point. In Microsoft Power point we can play flash files and can make it more entertaining and presentable.

To Play Flash in Presentations: 
1) Install the Macromedia Flash Player on your computer.
2) In normal view in PowerPoint, display the slide on which you want to play the animation.

3) On the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then click Control Toolbox.

4) In the Control Toolbox, click More Controls (the button with the hammer and wrench icon). In the list, scroll down and click Shockwave Flash Object, then drag on the slide to draw the control. 

5) Right-click the Shockwave Flash Object, and then click Properties.

6) On the Alphabetic tab, click the Movie property. 

7) In the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), type the full drive path including the file name (for example, C\:My Documents\MyFile.swf) or Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to the Flash file that you want to play.

8) To set specific options for how the animation plays, do the following, and when you're done, close the Properties dialog box:
  • Make sure the Playing property is set to True. This plays the file automatically when the slide is displayed. If the Flash file has a Start/Rewind control built into it, the Playing setting can be set to False.
  • If we don't want the animation to play repeatedly, in the Loop property, select False (click the cell to get a down arrow, click the arrow, and select False).
  • To embed the Flash file so we can pass this presentation on to others, in the EmbedMovie property, click True.
9) To run the animation: With the slide displayed in normal view, click the Slide Show button in the lower left of the PowerPoint window (or press F5, or, on the Slide Show menu, click View Show).
