MX and PowerPoint - Macromedia Director Basics

Hi- I wanted to import a power point file into one of my movies. I am making and interactive cd and I would like to have the power point presentation within one of my pages (movies). I know that with earlier versions of power point you would make a new movie and bring the power point in through "xtras". but i'm not able to do that with MX. Can some one please walk me through importing a power point presentation with Director MX? Thanks! btw - i'm on a g4 mac running osx jaguar.......

    Hi djm79,

    PowerPoint Xtra which is used to import PowerPoint files in Director 8.5 and
    below is no longer included with Director MX "out of the box".

    However, this Xtra is still available in the Director MX installer CD, under
    the Goodies folder. Just copy this Xtra into the Director MX Xtras folder,
    then relaunch Director to be able to import PowerPoint files in Director MX.

    Hope this helps.
