When you insert a video clip in PowerPoint, you may find that the inserted video starts playing instantly causing a jarring interruption to the flow of your slides. Not only can the sudden movement within the video clip area disrupt the flow, but the sudden sound from the video clip may take the audience unaware. This sort of disruption can be worse if you have trimmed your video clip. Clearly this is not a very professional or acceptable state of affairs. Fortunately, this is avoidable if you opt to add a Fade In or Fade Out effect to the beginning and end of your video clip. This option, which is new in PowerPoint 2010 not only edits your video clips to make them appear and finish smoothly, but also provides a more enhanced look.

Learn how to fade in or fade out your video clip in PowerPoint 2010.
