INTRODUCTION

You can add other types of movie files to your slides besides animated clip-art GIFs. For example, you can add video files stored on your computer, such as digital camcorder footage. Once you add a movie clip to your slide, you can move and resize the clip object just as you do other slide objects.

TIP

Supported Movie Files

PowerPoint supports popular video file formats, such as AVI and MPEG.

TIP

Moving Clips

You can reposition your clip by dragging it to a new location. See Part 5 to learn more about working with slide objects on the slide.

Double-click the clip to play the movie.

TIP

My Clip Won't Play!

If you insert an animated GIF clip, it does not play when double-clicked. Use Slide Show view to view the clip.

TIP

Removing a Clip

To remove a clip from your slide, click the clip and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

CAUTION

Resizing Movie Clips

Use caution when resizing movie clips. Most video files play best at their original size. Enlarging the slide object can make the clip appear grainy during playback.
