Export PowerPoint to PDF with each animation on a separate slide

Export PowerPoint to PDF with each animation on a separate slide

I have a PowerPoint presentation where I extensively use simple animations, only appear/disappear effects triggered by the mouse (not time based), without any smooth transitions.

"Converting a PPT to a PDF while maintaining the animation steps is something I too have been looking into for a long while, without finding a satisfactory solution.

That is why I have decided to write an add-in on my own which does exactly this:

splits the slides at each animation step (being it mouse-triggered or not depends on the user's choice)
while modifying (adding, deleting, altering) the shapes in the ""fragmented slide"" according to the animation effects.

If you are interested, I have packaged the add-in in an easy-to-use installer, which adds a toolbar (or tab, if you are using Office 2007) to your PowerPoint. In case you are not satisfied, you can easily remove the add-in using the standard Control Panel ""Add/Remove Applications"" tool.
