I have histograms in a bunch of hundreds of .pdf files.

I would like to find a way to make an animation from these files to use in a Powerpoint presentation.

How can I do that ? It would also be great to be able to view the animation with Quicktime.

You could try the following:

  1. Join your PDF files: How to merge pdf files in Mac OS X – CombinePDFs
  2. Convert your PDF to Keynote format: PDF to Keynote
  3. Create your movie: Exporting Keynote Presentation to QuickTime Compatible Movie File

Later you can use your created .MOV in another Keynote presentation.
