Some newish sermons and a question about computer animation

I don't think I've updated 'My Sermons' since March.

Here's some sermons I've preached since then:

1 Corinthians 7 (for grown ups)

1 Corinthians 8 

1 Corinthians 9

1 Corinthians 10

1 Corinthians 11

1 Corinthians 12

1 Corinthians 13

1 Corinthians 14

2 Samuel 14

2 Samuel 15

2 Samuel 21 (All age with slides)

2 Samuel 22 (All age song and slides)

Mark 12:18-44

Mark 13

Mark 14:1-26

Mark 14:53-15:15

Mark 15:40-16:8

Deut 8 (The Church in the Wilderness 1)


I've also got a question.


I'd love to be able to turn Powerpoint presentations into Youtube videos. Windows Movie Maker doesn't let me keep the animations from Powerpoint (only the images). Do any of you know a cheap way of making basic videos? I'd like to be able to use Powerpoint, but if converters from Powerpoint prove expensive perhaps someone could recommend an affordable video-making / animation program?

I just think little videos might be a great teaching tool. If any of you have any ideas, let me know.

    Are you planning to use the audio from church sermons or re-record them for youtube? If the latter, there's a pretty easy way. Download some screencast software, load up your Powerpoint and record. I suppose that you could even run that kind of software on the church computer and record it first time around.

    If you want a free version.... although screencast is cheapish anyway...

    When you do the powerpoint presentation instead of making a slide have 2 or 3 animations on it - make a separate slide. i.e if you have 3 bulletpoints for instance, put the first on one, copy it onto the nest slide and put the second bulletpoint on, repeat and put on the third one. (It's doesn't take much more time - you just get proficient with copy and paste.) THEN save the presentation in PNG format. This saves every slide separately - use these with moviemaker and your audio - making a note of the times you want the slides to appear and job done... and costs nothing (cheapskate approach I know...)

    Have done this myself - takes a bit of work initially but gets quicker with time...

    Thanks Toddy. Yeah I may well go with this. I'd quite like to be able to preserve animations (arrows stretching, people moving about, things fading into other things) which might necessitate the screencast. But slide-by-slide is a good tip.
