Learn PowerPoint 2010: Poster Frames for Videos

Created: Monday, June 4, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



When you insert a video in your presentation, you might see that the placed video clip displays a blank or black screen on the slide, as shown in Figure 1 below. Until the clip actually starts playing in slide show view, your users will see this black rectangle, which doesn’t look professional at all. With PowerPoint 2010’s new Poster Frame feature, you can easily overcome this limitation, and change the black rectangle to an image by selecting a frame from the video itself, or even a picture from a different source. Also, the Poster Frame feature presents a good option for displaying a company logo or a picture of a speaker in the video. The Poster Frame that you add or insert to a video is a frame that appears first when you view the containing slide in a slide show.

Learn how to add a Poster Frame for your video clips in PowerPoint 2010.
