I've been making some mathematical presentation in prezi, for example: Spectral Theorem (from proofs of the book).

This is a prezi that I presented today, but it took me a hell lot of work, to get LaTeX working in prezi. I was wondering if there are any prezi alternatives that are more LaTeX friendly?

I'm a programmer myself, so if they don't exist, I may try to make one myself some day, but I want to make sure that I don't miss out on some great already existing software.

    $\begingroup$ Are you sure you want to ask this at math educators? tex.stackexchange.com might be more appropriate. $\endgroup$ Nov 24, 2015 at 11:02
  • $\begingroup$ @JoonasIlmavirta Many times questions like these get closed on tex.stackexchange, because it is not really about the TeX language itself. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Maybe instead you should request Latex support from the Prezi prople... $\endgroup$ Nov 24, 2015 at 15:53

1 Answer 1


Not aware of any software but here's a simple hack to achieve what you want:

  1. Go to codecogs equation editor.
  2. Write your LaTeX equation.
  3. Copy the url generated (it will be exported as swf).
  4. In import dialog box in Prezi, enter the url
  5. Voila!

Someone has written a detailed blog post about it here.
