We look at the new video and editing tools in PowerPoint 2010, helping you to create presentations that will keep your business colleagues gripped.
Step 3. You'll find a video icon under the Insert menu; click this and browse to the footage you'd like to use on your local machine. To embed video from a website, click the arrow beneath this icon and choose 'Video from website' from the drop-down menu. You then simply need to paste in the HTML code.
Step 4. You can resize the video by clicking and dragging the bottom-right corner of the box it sits in. Interestingly, this box needn't be a traditional rectangle - a variety of shapes, from basic rectangles to triangles, stars and even flowcharts, are available in the Video Tools menu under Video Shape.
Step 5. Also under the Video Tools menu are several Format options. Click the Format tab to specify soft or hard edges on your video, and whether or not you want a shadow - you can make alterations under the Video Border tab. Note that you can hold your mouse over the various options for a preview.
Step 6. It's also possible to alter the brightness, contrast and colour of your footage from within PowerPoint. The Color menu lets you change the overall colour of your clip and, as before, you can hold your mouse over each option for a preview. The Corrections tab, meanwhile, lets you alter brightness and contrast.
