Video Shapes in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Created: Wednesday, July 19, 2017, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 9:15 am



When you insert a video clip within a PowerPoint slide, you’ll find it placed as a traditional rectangular shape. And while that’s what most users expect, as it seems safe and conventional. However, PowerPoint allows you to have your video playing in different shapes such as a circle or oval, or a wave, a triangle, or any of the shapes that PowerPoint’s Shapes gallery includes. However, just the fact that a video can be placed within a shape is no reason to forego the conventional rectangle. Do remember that most other shapes may crop out important parts of your video clips.
