I have several .pps files (which I simply renamed into .ppt before importing as a DVX project). The files which are less 1 Mb are imported OK, but there are some files with their sizes 2-5 Mb -- and DVX cannot import them. I think the problem is that DVX has not enough memory for the process. I tried to turn off all other applications but it still does not help.

Is there a way to make the initial .pps files smaller in size somehow? In fact, the text which they contain is really short (no more than 1000 words in a 5 Mb PowerPoint file, I suppose).

Or maybe there is yet another possible way to solve the problem? Thank you in advance!

A partial solution Apr 27, 2005

Thank you, Michael!

I found a partial solution: to break the source files into separate files. First I had thought my computer has not enough memory for DVX to import large files (I have 256 RAM and run under Windows XP), but for a while I see that I have problems with even relatively small files (like 250 Kb or so, after I broke th initial files into separate slides). So, the question still needs a research -- thank you very much for the link!
