I am having a .pdf of 1002 slides pages. These pages are snapshots taken at different time steps. I am willing to include this .pdf in a powerpoint presentation so that I can easily move from one snapshot to another with some keys. Because the rest of my presentation contains animations, I cannot simply make a .pdf out of my .ppt and add the 1002 pages in it. I would rather need to add the 1002 pages in my .ppt in a convenient way.
I am asking for advice for doing so. Two things are to be maximized:
- Easiness (and speed) of transitions
- Control over the flow during the presentation
I could do a .gif but the issue with the GIF is that I don't have any control over the flow at which the snapshots are displayed.
Tons of .ppt slides
I could make one .ppt slide per .pdf slide but then, my computer doesn't seem powerful enough to offer nice transitions.
I could make a movie (although I don't know how to do that for the moment) out of my .pdf and I could probably (I don't really know how) include the movie in a .ppt slide and have control over the flow by pausing the video. The slight disadvantage to this method is that I can't easily go backward in time if needed during a presentation.
If it is possible to include HTML code in
.ppt, I could eventually use the R-package
shiny in order to pass the pdf images. That sounds like a weird solution though.
What seems perfect to me
I would love to just include the .pdf in a window within a single .ppt slide and be able to transit between the pages with a "next page" (
n for example) and a "previous page" (
p for example) keys.
I am on MAC OSX Yosemite 10.10.2
Microsoft Office PowerPoint for Mac 2011, Version 14.4.8.
Here is one page of the .pdf. Note: Slight improvement will still be made but text size should not change!
