pdf is - imho! - meant for printable content.
(although, Adobe decided, it allows to content 'moving images' too)
do we speak of a 'file' containing moving images? …
or did you meant psd, ppt, tnt ... no!

As Karsten writes (he's 100%)
If no moving pages - there is a function to export in PowerPoint as a SlideShow and may be You can import this into iMovie.
To me the result is BAD to Worse
I do - if I must
• Play the PPT presentation
• Save each frame - as a screen-dump (Shift+cmd+3)
• I use GraphicConverter™ - to convert these to .jpg and
• Import these into my movie project
Result - fairly OK - doubt if anyone notice
( Monitor set to 1440 X 900 - when playing the PPT file - to get best possibly .jpgs )
If moving components - one has to get them as small movies and most probably one needs FinalCut to get them in right place and speed.
BUT - This is a tedious job ! - A smart automatic function with Quality preserving function could be of great value.

Save the new recording
Under the edit menu, select "Trim" and narrow your start and finishes to get rid of any cmd-tabs or other funny things that might have appeared in your recording but you don't want.
It's a big file, but there are converters that will trim it down.
