PowerPoint 2010: Editing Videos
www.gcflearnfree.org Learn how to edit the videos you have inserted into your slide show in PowerPoint 2010, including adjusting the playback options. The Playback tab has several options that you can use to edit your video. For example, you can trim your video so that it will only play an excerpt, add a fade in and fade out, and add bookmarks that allow you to jump to specific points in the video. Most of the features on the Playback tab can only be used with videos that are inserted from a file. They will not work with embedded videos. Much like pictures, PowerPoint allows you to format the appearance of the video by applying a video style, adding a border, changing the shape, applying effects such as 3-D rotation, making image corrections, and adjusting the color. You can also add a poster frame, which is the placeholder image that your audience will see before the video starts playing. The poster frame is often just a frame taken from the video itself, but you can also use a different image if you prefer.
