Combine PowerPoint Animations, Transitions, and Video to Create an Ad

No Comments, Marketing, PowerPoint, by Peggy Duncan.
After speaking engagements, I like to walk around with my iPhone and iRig microphone to capture testimonials. This video is from a recent conference, Society of Government Meeting Professionals, SGMP.org. I created portions of this video in PowerPoint with animations and slide transitions (in PowerPoint 2010, you can render directly to video).
I pulled the PowerPoint video into my editing software (Camtasia) and added music and the testimonial videos from my iPhone (I’d added all that to PowerPoint, but it kept crashing). I’ll send this to attendees and my conference host.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
 
PEACE.

Add a Video Call to Action to YouTube Videos Using Animated PowerPoint Slides (video example)

No Comments, PowerPoint, by Peggy Duncan.

I recently fascinated a group of meeting professionals on how to design graphics using advanced PowerPoint techniques. These are three testimonials from this recent national education conference of the Society of Government Meeting Professionals, SGMP.org.

I used PowerPoint 2010 animations and transitions and saved the file as a video. I pulled that video into my editing software (Camtasia) and added music and the testimonial videos (I’d added all that to PowerPoint, but it kept crashing). I captured the testimonials right after my sessions using my iPhone and iRig microphone.
