# Converting a PDF slide show to a video file

I have a LaTeX Beamer presentation that I output into a PDF slide show. I want to turn into a video file (with the ability to add sound later) so that I can generate animations from Beamer . How can one do this? I've tried importing the PDF to iMovie, but the quality of the frames drops dramatically.

• What are the contents of the PDF? Do you have access to the original material used to create the PDF? – Michael Liebman Apr 9 '18 at 19:56
• @MichaelLiebman The PDF file was made in the LaTeX document class Beamer. I have the .tex file from which the slides come from. My goal is to use Beamer for frame-by-frame animations. – user1337 Apr 10 '18 at 2:36
