Play an Adobe Macromedia Flash animation in a presentation

If you have an animated graphic that was created by using Adobe Macromedia Flash and saved as a Shockwave file with an.swf extension, you can play the file in a Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010 presentation.

To embed or link to a Flash animation from your PowerPoint presentation, see Embed a video in your presentation.

Note s :

  • There are some limitations when using Flash in PowerPoint 2010, including the inability to use special effects (such as shadows, reflections, glow effects, soft edges, bevels, and 3-D rotation), the fade and trim capabilities, and the ability to compress these files for easier sharing and distribution.

  • The PowerPoint 2010 64-bit version is not compatible with 32-bit versions of QuickTime or Flash. You must either, install a 64-bit version of QuickTime or Flash, or a 32-bit version of PowerPoint 2010.
