Capture Show add-in

PowerPoint 2002 did away with the ability to print slides with the animations. This add-in is a replacement for that functionality and more. The add-in captures slide builds as you present. You can capture builds into slides of a presentation or as images into a specified folder.

Version supported  PowerPoint 2000 or later.
