I've done presentations when I wished I could easily skip over parts of my video clips, if the content wasn't right for a specific audience. In PowerPoint 2010, you have the ability to navigate within your video clips by inserting bookmarks at specific moments. I am working on Slide 4 and I'll click on my media clip. Play your video and at the point where you want to insert your first bookmark, you can click the Pause button. (Music playing) (Female speaker: Welcome to?) I will pause my video just before she says, "Welcome to Hansel & Petal".
I can use the forward and back controls to fine-tune the moment. Also notice, that if I hold my cursor over the Play/Pause button, I can use a keyboard command Alt+P to start and stop the playback. Because I want to pause the video just before she says, "Welcome to Hansel & Petal", I want to move my video to 00.12.24. Now, your video time signatures may be a little bit different than mine but for the purposes of this video, you just need to get close. Up on the Video tools tab on the Playback Ribbon, there's an option on the left hand side for Add Bookmark.
Click on it and a line with a dot will appear in the timeline below the video clip. Press Play again and repeat the process. You can also pick up and drag the playhead or click where you want it to go if that will be faster. I'll place bookmarks at each scene change in our video. Again, yours does not have to be exactly the same as mine. I'll place my first one at 00:23.94 when we get to our flowers. My second one will be at 00:36.51 with our first interview.
Again, I will click Add Bookmark. My next bookmark will go when she goes into the freezer box at approximately 00:53.64, Add Bookmark. My next bookmark will begin with my next interview at 01:01.64. The next bookmark will go with my lilies around 01:21.69 and I'll put my last one with the owner again, approximately 00:01.27. Now, if you have a bookmark that you don't want, click on it so it turns yellow and then come up here to the Remove Bookmarks button and it will disappear.
Once you have all your bookmarks placed, let's play our slideshow and see how the bookmarks work. I'll go down to the Start slideshow button. When I hold my cursor over my video, I can see my bookmarks that I could use to jump to certain sections that I want. When I'm playing the video, I can use Alt+ End to move forward and Alt+Home to move back. (Female speaker: ?every piece that leaves our shop is a one of a kind creation. No two arrangements are ever?) In addition to navigating within your video, you can also use bookmarks to initiate actions on your slides.
We'll explore that technique in the video about using bookmarks as triggers. Be sure to check it out.
