I'm going to by chance include a message I sent out to a colleague in the off-chance someone also has a solution to it, but it also pertains to my issue. Skip to the bolded part below for just the question I have.I've been tasked with converting a Powerpoint presentation into a Flash presentation. I was considering manually doing it, but it seems like it would take an awful long time (240 slides, with videos and animations) - plus I don't know how to export the animations on individual slides over to Flash other than recreating them entirely.

I found a handful of programs on the Web that advertise that they will convert PPT to Flash (swf) and I tried a few to see which if any I should purchase. All of them had issues. Some either didn't run entirely or the end result was graphically ugly, videos weren't carried over (a problem I could easily rectify if the thing was an FLA where I could add videos back in that way), or animations were either mangled or ignored completely.how best tackle this challenge?Okay, so I basically started to just recreate the entire thing in Flash, using PrtScrn for backgrounds after deleting objects (then pasting in Photoshop and exporting as a PNG-24), as well as copying graphics into Photoshop as well to export as PNGs. No idea what to do about animations yet. Videos I can add back manually.
But anyways, as I do this, the movie is automatically advancing through every frame when I preview. I'm not sure how to go about setting up my Flash so that it only goes to the next frame when someone either presses the mouse button or the spacebar (either would be fine, I think).So that's my main focus at the moment. The other stuff is definitely part of the whole deal, but my main question is:ow do I set up Flash so that it only advances to the next frame when a mouse button or spacebar is pushed?
