Any help regarding converting my ppt file(.pptx) (with narration) to a video format (like.mp4) on linux? I used to do it with MS Powerpoint 2019 on windows but now idk how to get it done on linux and i don't really wanna use Windows for this one feature. Any help?
I am using POP OS latest.

another approach would be this: use LibreOffice impress or what to get ppt . Export each ppt frame as a .gif. use GIMP to make an animated Gif . I've done it you need plugin (gimp gap from memory) . Then :
To convert animation GIF to MP4 by ffmpeg, use the following command

ffmpeg -r 30 -i input.gif -movflags faststart -pix_fmt yuv420p -vf "scale=trunc(iw/2)*2:trunc(ih/2)*2" output.mp4



Here ``-r 30'' specify the frame rate 30 frames/sec. So if you want 10 sec movie with frame rate 30/sec, you make GIF animation that has total 300 frames, then use ``-r 30''.


or give that a go bang your head against a wall then remember lateral thinking : https://video.online-convert.com/convert/pptx-to-mp4

But it won't add the narration in there with it?

a
i've used recordmydesktop in the past ; i had a visual about doing something & i was able to add narration as recordmydesktop was recording
aaa i see I see. I have the voice recorded in the presentation already. I am using Windows and MS Office just for this reason since I haven't been able to find anything to do conversion on Linux before. I am tired of using Windows so, I'll see if I can find a screen recorder that can record voice too and try it that way.

Thank you so very much for helping me!
