Play 4:3 PPT on Wide Screen without Distortion


J

Jeffery

As the 16:9 HDTVs and LCD monitors become more and more popular in our
life, how to play the 4:3 PPT presentations in full screen mode on
these new babies without distortion is a big problem to many people.
It seems impossible to make it on the face, but how about if we try to
add something to fill the blank part of the screen. Please follow me,
I'll show you step by step.

Assume we have a 16:9 wide screen, and try to imagine a rectangular of
which the width is 16 inches and the height is 9 inches. The
rectangular comprises two rectangle regions, one is the gray on the
left, and the other is the white on the right. The white part
represents the original presentation, while the gray part stands for
the blank part of the screen. Be sure, if we play a presentation on a
HDTV it will not be displayed like this, but two black (or gray) bars
(known as letterbox bar ) on the left and right sides of the screen.
Here, we just concern the layout. What we should do now is to add
something to replace the gray part. Before I experienced PPT to flash
conversion tools, I have no idea what is appropriate for the little
gray.

Articulate Presentater, Wondershare PPT2Flash Professional, FlashPoint
and Pointecast Publisher are powerful tools to convert PPT
presentations to flash-based ones. Articulate has said they would
announce a new version of Presenter that supports PowerPoint 2007
before April, but until now, it's not available. Wondershare PPT2Flash
Professional and Flash Point have released the new version that
support PowerPoint 2007, and they do able to convert .pptx files, but
only PPT2Flash Pro can do it well (most SmartArts converted by
FlashPoint are in terrible condition). Here, take PPT2Flash
Professional for example to show how to use this kind of tools to
solve our problem.

Firstly, after installed PPT2Flash Professional (the version I
installed is 4.1.0 Beta, it's available for free), open the
presentation in PowerPoint, we can find PPT2Flash on the menu bar,
click the cascade menu, choose Player Templates, in Player we could
see the player's frame. In the full style mode, there is a panel at
the left (there is another template that display the panel on the
right) of our slide. It is exactly what we need. With this panel a 4:3
presentation becomes a 16:9 presentation (maybe not excatly 16:9
proportion, but much better).

Then, let's have a look at what we have on this panel, Company logo;
Author Info, which includes E-mail, Bio, Name, Photo; Toolbar,
including Flash Title, Attachments, Notes; Control Bar. Users can
manually set which items will be displayed. After personalized the
player template, publish the presentation, we get a flash presentation
with 16:9 aspect ratio.

Now we can play the presentation on 16:9 wide screens by setting its
aspect-ratio control to Stretch or Full.

Please stop advertising for Wondershare products. The solution needs a very
few words: Open a new presentation, set the slide size to a 16:9 format
(built-in in PowerPoint 2007) and copy the slide contents into the new
presentation. Big advantage: It is still editable!
