How to turn your Prezi presentation into a video (using Prezi Video)

Have a killer presentation that you’d like to upload to social media, embed on a website, or just want your audience to lay back and enjoy it without having to click through the entire thing? Prezi Video, our brand new video creation tool, allows you to seamlessly convert your Prezi presentations into videos. So, now Prezi gives you yet another outside-the-box way of sharing your thoughts and ideas.


Creating a video of a Prezi presentation using Prezi Video

To convert your Prezi presentation to a video, you’ll need to use the Prezi Video desktop application. You can download the app here.

Hi! Check out this article about the system requirements for using Prezi Video and this article to learn how to make videos in the Prezi Video desktop application.

The Prezi Video desktop app allows you to import your existing Prezi presentations and make a recording with you, and your context, on the same screen.


Once you’ve imported your presentation, the application automatically removes the background so that you can be seen next to your content while presenting. You can, therefore, create a video where you are present in your presentation, explaining the details as you go through your ideas. 

However, if you’d rather have a video where only your content can be seen, simply switch to the “Content only” view at the bottom of the screen and record your video. This also allows you to record just the audio while presenting and add a voiceover to any section of your presentation.


After you’re finished recording, you can trim your video and download it in .mp4 format. Then, you can easily share your video by uploading it to social media, embedding it on a website or sending it via email.
