Combine Slides from Multiple PowerPoint Templates

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

combine_slides_from_multiple_powerpoint_templates

You can combine several of our templates to mix and match slides from different animated templates into one presentation. In this video tutorial you can use the “Reuse Slides” function in PowerPoint 2007 and newer to combine slides from various templates.

When combining several animated templates together remember that the more animated templates you combine the larger your presentation will become. A number of video files will make your presentation quite bulky. This could be a problem if you are distributing the completed presentation.

Mac PowerPoint 2008 and 2011 instructions:

In Mac PowerPoint, inserting slides from other presentations or templates work pretty much the same way but the command is labeled differently. The function is located under the “Insert” menu. Look for Insert/Slides From/Other Presentations. In the slide finder, be sure to check “Keep Design of Original Slide” to retain the formatting, animations and other graphic elements. Otherwise PowerPoint will only copy the text and not slides design.

Downloading your first PowerPoint Animation

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Here is a short video tutorial of how to download a PresenterMedia Animation using PowerPoint. This is a simple but important process to avoid any problems and to make your animations run smoothly.

Covered in this video:

  • For PowerPoint, always download the largest animation available.  This yields the best quality.
  • After clicking the download link, always choose “SAVE” to save the image to your computer.  Choosing OPEN may end up removing the animation from the image.
  • In PowerPoint, always use the “Insert/Picture” function to place the animation in your presentation.  Inserting it as a video or copying and pasting it into your presentation can yield poor results.

Webinar Recordings from PresenterMedia Advanced! October 15 & 16

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

Firstly, thank you all so much who were able to make it to this month’s webinar!  We had some great questions.  Below are the links to the recordings from the webinars:

October 15, 2013 1:00 PM CST

October 16, 2013 9:00 AM CST

Also, here is a completed tutorial creating a Camtasia Video using PresenterMedia Content (31 minutes long)

Of course, we had tons of excellent questions as well, we didn’t forget about anyone!  Here are the questions and our answers from Tuesday and Wednesday’s Webinar:

I tried to record my screen and then add clipart, my text was fine when I recorded the screen, but when I edited it in Camtasia the words were so small I couldn’t read it.  How do I fix it to apply the clipart?

When you record a screen and then upload it to Camtasia, make sure you tell the project to be the Recording Dimensions or something relatively large if you want to be able to see the text images.  If you want to add clipart separately, you can do so by using Import Media.

How do you save a PPT presentation as a Windows Media File in PowerPoint 2007?

Unfortunately there’s not a way to simply “Save as WMV” in PowerPoint 2007 (great reason to upgrade to 2010 or 2013 or purchase Camtasia though!)  You can also use freebie screen capture softwares, but beware many are limited as far as the length , dimensions and file type that it can save as.

Can you post the URL for “Studio Cutz” audio library?

You can still purchase Studio Cutz from sounddogs.com if you purchase all the CDs, but the music is not available to download online.  For online options, remember to search “Royalty Free Music” and make sure you abide by all rules stated regarding using any artist’s music.
