Adobe CS5 Question

Dear Experts,

I have a powerpoint presentation that I need to get into an SWF format. I have the full professional Adobe suite CS5, and I want to use this to make the conversion. I have tried a lot of free software but a lot of quality is lost in the conversion.

Can someone please guide me through which app in the suite I need to use and how to do it.

many Thanks,

    I may suggest to use Camtasia Studio by Techsmith.

    Adobe Flash is the most effecient tool in creating SWF files among other products of Adobe but I am not sure if they have features that will convert Powerpoint into SWF file as what Camtasia Studio can offer.

    Adobe has a product called Captivate that does what Camtasia does.  

    But some of the items in this link should help you convert PPT to SWF.  If you have tried some of those and the quality is not great, list them so that we can better suggest you alternatives.

    Yeap. I agree with CyanBlue. Check if it is included in your CS5 Suite. I am sure Captivate is in the eLearning Suite of Adobe.
