Hi!

Does anyone know of a plugin that will allow users to import movies and/or models into Powerpoint and orbit around them interactively?

I did it years ago but cannot recall how I did it. I think it was even a free plugin.

Thanks!
Holly

Deep Exploration Right Hemisphere software was able to do it. I tried it back in 2004. The plugin had to be downloaded for it to play in PowerPoint though. Deep Exploration was bought by a company called SAP and the software got incorporated into a bigger suite of CAD tools. SAP is now really expensive. I don't know what else can do this but let me know if you find out.

I think that is probably how I did back then.
I'll let you know if I find a new solution.

thanks,

I used to use Right Hemisphere as well, very buggy and yes, now owned by SAP. More recently, I've used Simlab Composer to create something similar but it was embedded in a PDF. Perhaps they have something for PowerPoint or you could insert the PDF into the PowerPoint.
