Join Alicia Katz Pollock for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping a video, part of PowerPoint 2007: Audio and Video in Depth.
As you build your PowerPoint 2007 presentation, you'll see a number of…formatting effects that you can apply to your video, but you need to be careful.…While you're in normal view, the effects will look spectacular, but when you…play your slide show, the video itself will revert to its original state.…Let's take a look at the features that will and won't give you the look and feel…you're working to achieve.…On slide 4, I have a video clip of an interview.…When I click on it, and go up to the Picture Tools > Format Ribbon, I see a…number of formatting effects that look like I can apply them.…
That alone points to the issue at hand.…In normal view, your movie is treated as a still graphic.…You can spend hours and hours applying and perfecting any of the settings…available on the Ribbon and in the launcher dialog boxes, only to find that they…all disappear or interfere when you play your clip.…Let's test this out.…I'll play my slide show, so that you can see what the original video looks like.…
