    I tried to customize on of the templates and it’s has been running for hours. How long is it suppose to take?

      Check your “My Custom Media” button, the video is probably completed and stored there. The videos are in Beta testing still, so we have a few bugs to work out. If the video isn’t in the My Custom Media, simply recreate it. Thanks for your patience!

    I created a custom video and downloaded it, but it will not paste into PowerPoint. Other videos I’ve used and downloaded correctly and I’ve been able to use them. In fact, when I go to insert video, the custom video doesn’t even show up although others I’ve used are there. A bug?

    • Kara Jones says:

      Double check the custom video was created as a WMV file, not a .PPTX file. The default file type is PPTX so it wouldn’t insert as a video. You can insert it by using the dropdown under “New Slide”>”Reuse Slide”>”From File” and locating the PPTX file.

    If I click the “custom” background it doesn’t response at all. What went wrong?

    For some reason I am no longer seeing the color customizer box that allowed me to make color adjustments. Can you assist!

    I successully imported a custom video. I also have a text box in the powerpoint with the video, but when the video plays, my text box disappears. How can I get the text to show while the video is playing?

    • Kara Jones says:


      It sounds like you may have PowerPoint 2007, which does not allow items to play in front of text. To remedy this, either upgrade to PowerPoint 2010 or use one of our video backgrounds which has customizable text on it (which you edit on our website, customize and then download).

    I created a custom text video for the “Forging Your Text” animation. It’s missing the pointy end of the sword that is in the original video. Is that a special character that was added to give it that look? Or is that simply not available when doing the custom version?

    Just joined your site today. Love it! Great selection of materials. VERY easy and quick downloads (MacBook Pro). Downloaded in quicktime format so…hopefully…will be able to upload in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and After Effects into my music video remixes. Just wondering if I will be able to edit the backgrounds, text colors and text styles in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and After Effects? If so, I will be a regular on this site.

    • Kara Jones says:


      Thank you for your inquiry. The video formats are downloaded as MOV, not their original After Effects file format unfortunately so breaking them down would take a bit of time to accomplish.
