    Anybody who can help me with this, if you email me or call and we can do a Face Time, I’ll give you $50!

    I am trying to edit in the PP slides but realize that many of them have builds, yet I only have the completed slide. Does anyone know of how to get the underlying slides?

    Many thanks,


    P.S. After doing a lot of Googling I am learning that I need to Enable Editing or Enable Macros in PP. However, my problem might be that I have a Read Only version of this PP deck, it may be a PVC vs Mac issue, or perhaps because I am on Office 2011? But there is no button anywhere to allow me to see the individual slides for the build. Any ideas?

    Can you open your file in PowerPoint? Is it a .ppt?
    If it is, you should be able to open it and edit the slides and output .jpg’s or .png’s of the slides. Just export each part of the build as a separate graphic and do the build in FCP.
    If your file(s) are not .ppt’s but are some other graphic format, there’s not a lot you can do. See if you can get a copy of the original PowerPoint .ppt file in that case?
