Adding & Editing Video

Adding & Editing Video Clips

Please Note: From the release of PTE AV Studio in late 2019, the need to Optimize video before use is no longer required. However, it remains a  requirement if you’re a PicturesToExe 9 user. 

In this set of videos we look at many video techniques, like editing Video Sound, Video Size and Video Length. We also look at Video Manipulation in PicturesToExe and Photoshop.  Start at the top and work down at your own pace. NB There is no number 001 video

Video 002 – Before we start – When these tutorials were created, the accepted publish option was an executable file for playing on a computer or a TV. In that case, file size is vitally important to us.  However, if you now choose a publish option of a 60p Mp4 Video for your presentation.  (This appears to be taking over as a new standard) The video clip sizes your adding to your presentation are not so vital.  Download this video here

Video 003 – Animation Keyframe Settings –  The changes to the preferences we suggest here is to avoid our video running coming to an abrupt stop before the full slide duration has been reached. It’s not a good look,  and a preference change on how we view slide duration is one way to avoid this.  Download this video here
