PowerPoint 2010 enables you to insert video clips in your presentations, but many times the video clip inserted may be too long. Or maybe you just need to show part of the video clip, rather than wasting your audience’s time showing them the entire clip. Of course, PowerPoint 2010 has the Player Controls bar that allows you to scrub and play the clip from exactly where you want it to begin — but scrubbing a clip in front of an audience can appear unprofessional. Another alternative is to trim the video clip outside PowerPoint in a dedicated video program, and that would probably be the approach we would suggest if PowerPoint 2010 did not introduce a whole, new Trim Video option.
