This is the official manual for the latest Org-mode release.
Org transforms heading levels into Beamer's sectioning elements, frames and blocks. Any Org tree with a not-too-deep-level nesting should in principle be exportable as a Beamer presentation.

Org overrides headlines to frames conversion for the current tree of an Org
file if it encounters the
BEAMER_ENV property set to
fullframe. Org ignores whatever
to be for that headline level in the Org tree. In Beamer terminology, a
fullframe is a frame without its title.
blockenvironments. Org can enforce wrapping in special block types when
BEAMER_ENVproperty is set1. For valid values see
org-beamer-environments-default. To add more values, see

appendix, Org exports the entry as an appendix. When set to
note, Org exports the entry as a note within the frame or between frames, depending on the entry's heading level. When set to
noteNH, Org exports the entry as a note without its title. When set to
againframe, Org exports the entry with
\againframecommand, which makes setting the
BEAMER_REFproperty mandatory because
\againframeneeds frame to resume.
ignoreheading is set, Org export ignores the entry's headline but
not its content. This is useful for inserting content between frames. It is
also useful for properly closing a
BEAMER_ACT is set for a headline, Org export translates that
headline as an overlay or action specification. When enclosed in square
brackets, Org export makes the overlay specification a default. Use
BEAMER_OPT to set any options applicable to the current Beamer frame
or block. The Beamer export back-end wraps with appropriate angular or
square brackets. It also adds the
fragile option for any code that may
require a verbatim block.
To create a column on the Beamer slide, use the
for its headline in the Org file. Set the value of
BEAMER_COL to a
decimal number representing the fraction of the total text width. Beamer
export uses this value to set the column's width and fills the column with
the contents of the Org entry. If the Org entry has no specific environment
defined, Beamer export ignores the heading. If the Org entry has a defined
environment, Beamer export uses the heading as title. Behind the scenes,
Beamer export automatically handles LaTeX column separations for
contiguous headlines. To manually adjust them for any unique configurations

BEAMER_ENV is set, Org export adds
:B_environment: tag to make it visible. The tag serves as a visual
aid and has no semantic relevance.
