If you are creating your presentation on an Apple computer, please be aware of the following issues.
Movies: QuickTime is not native to Windows computers. It is preferable to have your video files converted to
.avi’s in order to allow for proper operation in PowerPoint for Mac or PC.
Pictures: Use common image formats that are cross-platform such as JPG, PNG, GIF.
Fonts: Use common
cross-platform fonts such as Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier. Many pre-installed and custom fonts will not translate properly on a Windows machine.
Animations: Use simple entry animation effects, such as
fly in/out, appear, and dissolve. The best way to ensure your success is to come by the Speaker Lounge. There are technicians there ready to assist you.
*These guidelines have been established by Production Resource Group to help ensure the success of your presentation.*
