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.
Much of the time you'll already have a video saved on your computer that you want to insert into your PowerPoint presentation. It's easy to add the clip to a slide. Click on the fourth slide in your exercise file. Notice the six images in the middle of the slide. The bottom-right icon has a movie reel on it. This represents any type of multimedia. Click on it and a Windows dialog box will appear. Navigate to the folder where you keep your assets. If you want to limit the items you can see to a specific file format, click on this Movie Files dropdown and you can select a specific file type.
We'll just leave it on Movie Files to see all of our choices. I discuss which ones work with PowerPoint 2007 in the video formats movie earlier in this course. Double-click on ad_45sec or click on it and click OK. A dialog box appears asking if you want the movie to start automatically or when clicked. If you chose Automatically, the video would start as soon as you go to that slide while you're giving your presentation. We want it to start when we wanted to start, so we'll tell it to play When Clicked.
Let's play the presentation so we can see the video. I'll click on the Slide Show button down here at the bottom. When I click on it, my movie starts. If I click again right on the movie, I can pause it. If I want to skip the rest of the video and move on to the next slide, click on the slide's background and your slide show will advance. Press Escape to end the playback and return to normal view. I'll go back to slide 4. I can make my media clip larger or smaller either by clicking on it and dragging the corners or by clicking on the video and then on the new Movie Tools > Options tab that appears.
On the far right-hand side, I have size boxes. If I make my video clip larger, the image may become pixelated because you're expanding it beyond its original size. There's another way to insert media clips as well. The way we just added the movie is how you would do it if all you wanted on the slide is that one clip, because we used the content box as the target. Now go to the second slide. If you have text on a slide and you'd like to enhance it with a small video clip, the steps start a little differently. Up on the Ribbon, change to the Insert tab.
On the far right you'll see a button with the same film canister on it, labeled Movie. If you click on the bottom half of the button on the dropdown arrow, you can select Movie from File. If you just click on the top half of the button, right on the film, PowerPoint automatically selects that same option. From there, the process is exactly the same as before. Navigate to the Lilies and click OK. I'll tell it to start Automatically. I will click on it and then shrink it down so it's small.
Then I will click in the middle of it, then I'll drag it where I want it to go, and now I can play it. (video playing) I will press Esc. Inserting a media clip into your slide shows is a piece of cake, and it opens up all kinds of possibilities for including video in your presentations.
