Part 9. Adding Multimedia Elements > Adding a Movie File

Adding a Movie File

Click the slide to which you want to add a movie clip.

Open the Insert menu, choose Movies and Sounds, and select Movie from File.

The Insert Movie dialog box opens. Locate and select the movie file you want to use.

Click OK.

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.


Click Automatically to have the clip play automatically when the slide is displayed in your presentation, or When Clicked if you want to activate the clip manually.

Click and drag the clip to reposition it on the slide, or click and drag a handle to resize the clip.

Double-click the clip to play the movie.
