How to Import a PowerPoint into iMovie?

Step 1. Export PowerPoint as a Video

To import PowerPoint to iMovie, the first step is to convert PowerPoint to video. This guide will use PowerPoint 2016 to illustrate the entire process.

Note: This guide also applies to Microsoft PowerPoint 2010/2013/2016/2021. If you are using PowerPoint 2007, check out How to Convert PPT to Video in Office 2007 for more information.

>> Open the presentation you want.

>> In the upper left corner of the main PowerPoint interface, click “File” > “Export”.

>> Go ahead and click “Create a Video” from the "Export" menu. Then select the quality of the video you want to create from the “Computer & HD Displays” drop-down list. You can also decide whether to use recorded timings and narration in the second drop-down box. Next, fill in a number in “Seconds spend on each slide” based on your preference, or leave it at the default of 5 seconds.

>> Finally, click "Create Video" and save it as an MPEG-4 Video. Now you've made your PowerPoint presentation into an MP4 video.
