Reformat PPT slides - Macromedia Director Basics

I have a client that wants to integrate 50+ PPT's into a director presentation. The PPT's have been developed in 4:3 aspect ratio for playback on a computer screen. The director presentation is to be played back full screen on plasma screens in 16:9. In the past, we have implemented a PPT-based menu solution that requires us to reformat each slide of the 50+ PPT's from 4:3 to 16:9 (move text, pictures, tables, etc.). Is there a function in Director that will reformat the existing PPT presentations to 16:9 without having to open and reformat each slide? Thanks....

    Default Re:Reformat PPT slides

    You can probably do that very easily in Photoshop using a batch action.

    In Photoshop, under File > Automate > Batch, you can automate a series of actions (specified in the "Actions" palette) to automate time-intensive redundant tasks. You can apply this technique to reformatting your images and then import them into Director.

    Good luck!
