What Is It?

AuthorPOINT Lite is a free PowerPoint to flash converter that outputs an SWF file as well as generates a link to the presentation on authorSTREAM's server. This allows the user to share a url or an embed link to the presentation in flash format.

How is it Used?

First, import your PowerPoint into authorPOINT Lite. During the import process, authorPOINT automatically outputs an SWF file to a designated location. In order for the presentation to play, though, one needs all of the files and folders associated with the index.swf file (except for the .js file) located in the same folder. Once the presentation is imported, the user can Upload the file to authorSTREAM's website. There you can grab the url or embed link to share your presentation with others.

How Can I get Started?

Download and install authorPOINT Lite here. You will be required to use a name and email address. If you do not already have an account on authorSTREAM you can join here, or the first time you attempt to upload a presentation you will be asked for your email and password. If you do not already have an account, click the Sign Up! button to create your free acount. Once that is complete, you can enter your email and password into the Upload box in authorPOINT and Sign In. Your presentation will be uploaded to your new account on authorSTREAM.
