Convert PowerPoint to Video

bferk asked:

Open original thread
if (path != "")
    bool validName = false;
    string nFile = "newFile";

    PowerPoint._Presentation objPres;

    objApp = new PowerPoint.Application();
    objApp.Visible = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue;
    objApp.WindowState = Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.PpWindowState.ppWindowMinimized;

    objPres = objApp.Presentations.Open(txtSearch.Text, MsoTriState.msoTrue, MsoTriState.msoTrue, MsoTriState.msoTrue);
    Console.WriteLine("File name: " + txtSearch.Text);
        txtStat.Text = "Starting Conversion";
        if (!nFile.Contains(".wmv")) nFile += ".wmv";

                objPres.SaveAs(path + "\\" + nFile, PowerPoint.PpSaveAsFileType.ppSaveAsWMV, MsoTriState.msoTrue);

        txtStat.Text = "Done";
    catch (Exception ex)
    MessageBox.Show("Please select a file PowerPoint file to convert");

Above is my I am using to try and convert a PowerPoint into a video. I am using Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint in order to do this. My issue is that it converts the first slide but after that it displays really strange looking green bars and weird colors.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated!
