Death by powerpoint

Am CURRENTLY in a lecture on ‘How to use Powerpoint’ as part of my JNC course. I need the course credit for being here but it’s a VERY VERY BASIC how to create a slide type gig and I’m bored. I’ve produced my slide and am now messing about on-line and if there is ANYONE out there, here is my slide ….. I knew you’d be interested 😉
I have some questions about video formats useable within powerpoint and whether it’s possible to disable the sound of a video and have a sound file overplaying, but I don’t think it’s the right time to ask?
Fifteen minutes until the redemptive refreshment of the Tea break, YES!

  1. I’d be interested in the answer to the video thing!
    I’ve always edited the soundtrack to the video first and then imported to Power Point.

  2. So does this lecture count towards some of your module hours, or is it just one of those “we’re still renting the building so you have to turn up” extra lectures? 🙂

  3. As far as I am aware you can’t do that in Powerpoint… however the simplest way to deal with this is to open the movie in Quicktime and then export it to whatever format you want – making sure you change the settings to export video only i.e. not audio
