They will probably require you to do a 'render' at the end before giving the presentation, and most folks will need you to render it before you send it, but hey I think they might give you most of what you asked for including not being PowerPoint. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_editing_software https://itsfoss.com/open-source-video-editors/ Good luck. -- Even when this disclaimer is not here: I am not a contracting officer.
