Hi, I haven't found anything recent on this forum about working with Powerpoint slides in Premiere Pro. I was wondering (hoping) that the 2018 version might have some handy new workflow for this. Can anyone advise on the most effective way to get slides in for video editing? Thanks. This is to cut from a speaker to his slides.

Have you tried the Export in Powerpoint? You can now export in mp4.

So in Powerpoint, it's in File > Export > Create a video

Hope it helps!

Right, so that's still the best way to go, eh? I saw you export WMV or mp4. Thanks

The last one I did there was no automatic timing between the slides so I just 'saved as' each slide in PowerPoint as a jpeg and used those in Premiere,

The best way I have found to do this is choose File->Save as Pictures->PDF option.  Open the saved PDF in Photoshop, in the crop to: drop down menu choose Media Box, increase the bit depth to 16bit and choose RGB color mode and hit ok. Save each slide as a .PSD file.  This will preserve all of the highest resolutions.  You might be able to get away with saving them as jpegs, I didn't do that option.  The .PSD file are a little larger, but that's usually a fail safe.

I don't have PowerPoint here to check but try and make your video settings out of PowerPoint match any other material that you might be combining it with - so if you are working with 1920x1080p 29.97fps material then use those settings for the PowerPoint export.

If you are not combining other material then just go with what ever you want (though 1920x1080 at 29.97fps {or 25fps} is a good choice. Keep in mind some PowerPoints are still created in 4x3 aspect ratio, so your export needs to match and in a 4x3 case you would be exporting at 1440x1080 resolution.
