Discover how to integrate and enhance video and audio to create a more engaging PowerPoint presentation. In this course, author Alicia Katz Pollock emphasizes the technical details necessary to make a multimedia presentation work: from working with appropriate file formats, to applying video styles, to reducing the file size of multimedia presentations for sharing.
You may find there are times when you don't want the audience to even see your video on the screen if it's not playing. Here's how to hide your clips. I am on slide 6 of my presentation and I will click on my video. Go up to the Video Tools Playback tab. In the center are a series of Video Options. Find the options that say Hide While Not Playing and click on its checkmark. But now when I play my slideshow I've got a problem. My video is hidden, so I can't click on it to even start the clip. Press Escape to go back to the normal view.
If I am going to hide my clip I have to have some way to start it. The simplest solution is to go up where it says Start On Click and drop it down and change it to Automatically, so that my movie plays as soon as I go to the slide and disappears when it's done. Now when I play my slideshow that's exactly what happens. (Male speaker: Hansel and Petal is awesome. It's actually my anniversary tonight and I forgot about it. It's where I come every time.) When you don't want your media clip to appear on your slide at all, using these techniques allows you to hide the clip completely. A more complex way is to add a separate object that triggers the media clip when I click on it.
This will be useful when I have a slide that has additional content than just my video. We will explore those techniques in the movies about triggering later in this chapter.
