Is it possible to embed an Adobe Animate file in Powerpoint?

I have many interactive flash animations (.swf) that I used to have embedded in Powerpoint that I use for teaching (I did not create them, they are from the textbook publisher). Flash is no longer supported, of course, so the animations won't play - I'm using a flash emulator and linking outside of Powerpoint for now, but I'd rather have the animations embedded. I've been able to recreate some of the animations within Powerpoint itself, but there are others that are more complex. I want to recreate them in Adobe Animate and then embed that into Powerpoint, is that possible? I don't want to go through the trouble of learning Animate if I still can't embed the animations (I did learn Adobe Flash 20 years ago).

 

The key here is that the animations are interactive, not just plain videos, and I want them to play inside Powerpoint, I don't want to have to link to another application.

Hi.

 

I'm not a PowerPoint expert but I think that you can maybe recreate your animations in Animate using the HTML5 Canvas document and then use some PowerPoint plugin that can display web pages.

 

But of course it's important to check if this alternative is really possible before committing to create the animations.

 

Regards,

JC

That's what I'm thinking, too, I just don't know if it'll work yet.

Yeah, I think you should find a plugin first and then test a very simple example created in Animate.

Sadly, I can't make it work. I could only find 2 plug-ins. LiveWeb doesn't work, and Web Viewer only works for outside websites and not on local .html files.

Can't you host your published Animate content in a place like Netlify, for example?

no.  well, the gif can interact but nothing in the gif can interact.  ie, clicking the gif can trigger something, but it won't cause the gif to play differently.

Then a gif won't work - I specifically need the animations to be interactive.
