What is AVI video format?
AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video for Windows technology. AVI files can contain both audio and video data in a standard container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback.This is a container video format that specifies certain structure how the audio and video streams should be stored within the file.

Most commonly used video codec that use AVI structure are M-JPEG and DivX . AVI contains code called FourCC which tells what codec it is encoded with.

Commonly, there are two basic principles for converting PowerPoint to AVI:
The first choices is using a screen recording application to record your slideshow as it plays on your screen, If you don’t have any embedded video clips in the slide show, an app like SnagIt works perfectly for grabbing your slideshow at approximately 10 frames per second (full motion digital video is typically 30 frames per second). If you embedded a full motion video in your presentation, you need a screen capture app capable of full motion video recording like Camtasia, which cost $299 per copy. I am not going to discuss the prices of the product, it all depends on you, but I must point out if you use a screen recorder, you have to open your PowerPoint each time, and you can’t do any jobs when the conversion is going on. Besides, you may lose some of elements like animations, transitions, audio track and so on, that’s really a very disappoint thing which would make your excellent presentation to a dull package. Another thing is that you have pieces of PowerPoint, and you want to convert them all at one time. But with screen recorder, you need to convert them one by one.
The second way is using third party software, when you search through website, you could find a lot of programs that promised to solve this problem with excellent quality. You must keep your head clear so you can choose the best one, we advice you’d better have a free trial before purchasing.
