I have a simple PowerPoint presentation and I would like to convert it to Flash or Silverlight. The presentation is a simple "Slide after Slide after Slide" and my first guess was to use OpenOffice Impress.

Sadly, the picture quality is awful. I would need the presentation to be in a specific format (900 Pixels wide and as high as it needs to be, usually 675 pixels)

Can you recommend any good, simple PowerPoint => Flash or Silverlight converter that does that?

If you just want "pictures" of deck slides with no animation, there's a tool on http://codeplex.com called PPT to Silverlight. There is currently no other tool on the market that supports PPT to Silverlight (Electric Rain has some technology that they license though).

Otherwise, there are some really good tools for PPT to Flash. I used Articulate Presenter and Captivate from Adobe. Both are not cheap though. :(
