    Splitting PPT animation using C#

    Using .NET 2.0, I'm trying to split animated PPT slides into several flattened slides.

    1. http://neilmitchell.blogspot.com/200...df-part-2.html I have translated the code into C#, and it works fine, except it doesn't handle appearing/disappearing bullets.

    2. http://www.dia.uniroma3.it/~rimondin...liT-source.txt This works better when being run as an add-in or a macro. The problem is that I ran into some problem translating it into C#, such as unavailable methods or unavailable indexes in an array.

    My questions:

    1. Is it possible to detect/split the bullets by just using the code from link #1? This is the preferable method since the code is already simple.

    2. If that's not possible, can I create/run the macro from C# in the runtime? The macro would have not been installed/existed in the PPT file. I imagine this will be impossible since macro feature would have to be enabled in the PowerPoint program before it could be run.

    3. Other solutions are welcomed!

    No one has done this before?
    Any suggestion where I can ask question?

    I'm not sure. Your question - while unusual - would obviously be a useful application. My best guidance is to look into using the Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint namespace (MSDN link) and see if that can help.

    COM and Interop are not my strong suits... anyone else have any ideas?

    Hope that helps a little! Good luck!
    Best Regards,
