    Is there a way to convert powerpoint to video? Maybe some setting like presenting a new slide every 10 seconds or so?

    And if so, is there also a way to add a voice over?

    I had a project very similar to this a few months ago but with Keynote. Keynote does have an export to Quicktime Movies option and I thought PowerPoint would have the same thing.

    If not you can always export each frame as a JPEG and import the image file in to a video editor such as FCP, Premiere, iMovie, etc and set the amount of time on each frame an add the sound to it.

    PowerPoint does have a QuickTime export option, it's under Save As... and then pick "Movie" as the format. I believe if you use the Record Narration function in PowerPoint, it will export in the movie. (I have not tried this though)
    What I usually do though, is to import my PowerPoint files into Keynote, make sure the formatting is all OK, and export to QuickTime from Keynote. It usually looks a lot better, and you have more QuickTime options.
