PPT Clone parallelly

If there are n slides in the power-point. We want to clone these n slides to the end of another power-point presentation in a parallel way. It means if 1st slide takes 450 ms, 2nd slide takes 550 ms., than rather than having 450 + 550 ms. = 1s. total sequential cloning time, we want it to be parallel, i.e; maximum(450, 550) = 550 ms.

Do you think given a destination power-point as a critical section here it is achievable? Can your development team shed some light on achieving slide clones in multiple process/ threaded way, even running in parallel?

Any help will be appreciated?


Hi Praneeth,

I have observed the requirement shared by you and like to share that it is impossible to clone slides inside a presentation in parallel using multiple threads because Presentation object contains shared resources which are not thread safe. However, It is possible to create many instances of one presentation and work with them in parallel separately.

Many Thanks,
