I have done this using the following steps ...

* Export[] each frame of the animation as BMP files after setting ImageSize
& ImageResolution
* assemble a movie from these BMP files using a program such as BMP2AVI (or
XP's MovieMaker) taking care to use a CODEC that combines good compression
with common availability
* importing the AVI to PowerPoint

BMP2AVI (, when
last I looked) is quite old but for this purpose, works very well.
