Animating A Mixture of Pictures & Text

“Getting to Know the Audience”

The Internet moves data & commands between anyone’s computer & web servers.

A web browser is an app stored on your computer. It starts by requesting a webpage by giving its location (url) in the cloud.It then renders visual/graphical webpage images interpreting the all-text description files.

A web browser is an app stored on your computer. It starts by requesting a webpage by giving its location (url) in the cloud.The browser then renders visual/graphical webpage images interpreting the all-text description files.

Low-level all-text descriptions (HTML) of webpages & graphics files reside on servers. Also, web apps, databases …

Adding/Embedding a Video Clip

  • PowerPoint 2008
  • INSERT menu –> Movie… –> navigate to mp4 file –> select –> Choose
  • Or, if visible, click “Insert Movie– one of 6 Insert icons showing on New Slides from the default template Slide Master)
  • PowerPoint 2011
  • INSERT menu –> Movie… –> Movie from File… –> navigate to mp4 file–> select –> Insert or, click “Insert Movie from File” icon as above
slide11

Packaging a Presentation to be Sure Videos Are Included (for transporting file on a memory stick to another computer)

  • Conventional Wisdom:
  • Place video and/or music files in the same folder as the .ppt (or .pptx) file.
  • Copy that folder to memory stick
  • Copy folder to another computer with PowerPoint installed, open .ppt(x) file, view in SlideShow mode and click on the video frame when chart with video is reached.
  • Better (?)
  • Do video/music Insertions as above.
  • Save file as .pptx
  • Save As again as PowerPoint Show (.pssx)
  • Clicking on the .pssx file opens it directly in SlideShow mode
  • Music/videos are embedded such that they play even if not present
slide13

Caveats

  • Animations set up in one version of PowerPoint often do not work exactly as intended in another version (PPT-for-MAC 2011 vs 2008 or earlier, or Mac vs Windows)
  • Ditto for music/video files for Mac PPT 2008 vs Mac PPT 2011. Particularly, it may be the case the in PPT 2011, in SlideShow mode, the player frame has standard controller options (start/stop, backup, volume, full-screen) that are not present when playing in PPT 2008, where start/stop is by clicking the player frame and other controller options do not seem available.
  • Don’t trust PowerPoint Show (.pss or .pssx) to work identically across versions.
  • While files saved from PPT 2011 seem to open OK on a computer with PPT 2008, some advanced features may not work as intended (e.g., Flow Motion animations).
  • Your presenter thinks maybe the PC-vs-Mac differences in PowerPoint are over-stated, and what users are instead observing is:
    • differences between versions of Office (2008 vs 2001 in Mac’s case, 2007 vs 2010 in PC’s case) on the same platform
    • Failure to realize PPT-Windows 2010 is very much like PPT-Mac 2011, much more than either is like PPT-Mac 2008 (which is more similar to PPT-Windows 2007 than to PPT-Mac 2011) .
