    Hi, wondering whether anyone can help me here. I'm going to have some digital footage that I can put onto iMovie, but I would like to use it in a powerpoint presentation that will in the end be shown on a windows 98 laptop. Is there any way of doing this? Otherwise I'm going to have to do it on my work pc's disastrous excuse of a movie program. I don't have any specifically-bought movie software, i'm using an iMac that i bought 3 months ago.

    export as a quicktime movie. you can then just drag and drop into a ppt on your mac or on your pc.
    I would reccomend you do all the work on a mac and then export as a powerpoint show. This is the best option.
    If you only have a pc you will probably need to get the movie into a MPEG format so that it can be read easier by the windows equivilent of quicktime (i think its called windows media crasher)

    You may want to transfer the .mov (or whatever it is) with the powerpoint file, I've had a few problems with pictures.
