Dear Judd In the previous version, I had the possibility (and I have always used it) to transform an mp4 video to PPTX and that helped me to design and then paste the template as Powerpoint to my slides, today I cannot. It only goes down in MP4 and it only opens as a youtube video. It's not the same anymore. How can I make it look like an animated template, once designed? I await your solution since it is my ninth time that I ask Mike and he cannot answer me. Best regards. Claudia

Hi Claudia, thanks for reaching out. We have added the .pptx option with the embedded .wmv video back into our video downloads. This .wmv video format is a legacy format and is recommended only for PowerPoint 2010 and older.

There is a tab file save project. Where do I find this saved project when I come back later?

Hi Paul, The Video Maker has undergone some recent changes; one addition is the save project option. There will soon be a "drafts button" in your My Media where all your saves will be stored. For right now, open a blank SlideClip project or an existing one that you have created. Then, go to File > Load Project. This area will display all your saved projects. Let us know if you still need help. An update to this blog video tutorial is in the works and will be updated soon.

After adding music, can I also add vocie?

Judd
Hi Vic, to add voice, you would need to upload a separate voice track file you have made and then add it to your project through the "My Media and Uploads" tab in SlideClips. If you need further help with this, please feel free to contact customer support. Thanks.

Is it possible to load png pict. or only jpeg. I did try to bring transparent BG pix but can't get them in my slideclips presentation. Greetings Frank

Hi Frank, Yes, you can load both .png and .jpeg formats into your SlideClips project. I just tested both out, and they seem to be working correctly. As of right now, .svg format isn't supported. Did you upload your image in My ( Custom Media and Uploads?)
