I've been messing around with Picasa and PowerPoint to create brief, 1-4 minute slideshows with text slides, images, and a music background.

I'd like to take that one small step forward and have two tracks (one music, one vocal), and do some more fancy things with the text/slides.

What's the simplest tool for the job? My goal would be to publish something on either YouTube, in Flash, or in MOV format.

In PowerPoint 2007:

  1. Use "Slide Show -> Record Narrations" to record your vocals on each slide.

  2. Go to the first slide, and then "Insert -> Sound", and pick your background music file. Details here:

Now export your presentation as video. :)
