I get Mathematica animations to Powerpoint via bitmaps of each frame.  I
assemble the movie using the program pjBMP2AVI.  I typically access it
from Powerpoint using a hyperlink rather than direct import because I
have more control over the movie player -- Quicktime is sometimes more
useful than Media Player.

The sequence I use is essentially

Do[
	plt = Show[...];
	outfile = StringJoin[baseName, ToString[frameNumber], ".BMP"];
	Export[outfile, plt, "BMP", various graphics options],
	{jf, 1, numberOfFrames}
	];

Regards,

Dave.
