After your media clip finishes playing, it usually ends with the last frame of the video, but if you would like the clip to return back to your first frame or poster frame, you can set the clip to rewind after playing. I'm on slide 6 of my presentation. And I'll click on my video to select it. I'll go ahead and play it so you can see this effect. Here I have a poster frame applied, and an extra graphic that people will see when the video is not playing. I'll play it. (Male speaker: Hansel and Petal is awesome.) I'm going to fast-forward to the end so that you can see that it'll just end with the interview frame.
Now go up to Video tools and click on Playback. In the center, are a series of Video Options. Find the option that says Rewind after Playing and click on its checkmark. Now, when I play my slideshow, when my media clip reaches the end, it'll go back to the initial frame. (Male speaker: Hansel and Petal is awesome.) I'll go ahead and I'll fast-forward to the end. (Male speaker: It's where I go every time.) So in this case, my audience sees my company logo instead of just the gentleman when the video is done.
Rewinding your media clip after playback is the perfect solution to bring your video back full circle without having to edit your video to start and end with the same imagery.
