How does Powerpoint react if you save as ODF presentation (.odp file) and try to open that?

There are two pptx formats, try the 2007-365 version rather than OfficeOpenXML. Otherwise, the older format, ppt, might be a better bet.

I tried saving in Impress an existing presentation but all versions opened OK in Powerpoint 2010 however there were very few pictures and no fancy transistions or timed sequences.
