Adobe Presenter: Create PDFs containing Animation and Multimedia

Very few people are aware that Adobe’s PDF files actually support movement and multimedia! Yes, you can have animations and transitions within PDFs, and also these PDFs can contain audio and video files. So why do the PDFs typically created from within PowerPoint using PowerPoint’s built-in PDF output — or even created using Adobe’s Acrobat Pro program not contain these niceties? Was that a little confusing? Let’s make this easier. Imagine you have a PowerPoint presentation that has some animation and an embedded video clip. Convert that to a PDF and all the movement and multimedia is lost! The solution is not very obvious, but Adobe creates a PowerPoint add-in called Adobe Presenter — this lets you directly publish your presentation into a PDF with all the movement and multimedia preserved.

Learn how to create PDFs containing animations and multimedia within PowerPoint using Adobe Presenter.
