PowerPoint 2010 Video Pipeline: Overlaid Video Effects

Logic: powerful sue of more than one copy of a video

Now we look at some of the better video effects we can apply in PowerPoint 2010.

We start with an added video.

We duplicate that video.

On the first video (closer to the slide background) we apply Orange, Accent color 6 Dark. To the uppermost video we apply a Video Shape- Oval; Video Effects, soft edge, 50 points; and color as normal (as pictured as video 1 and 2.

We align both videos centred to slide.

Both videos are set to play Automatically, With Previous. When we play, we get a cool color video over a darker background one. There is one thing left to do.


We need to insert a blank slide before our slide with the two videos on it. If you launch the slideshow directly to the slide with videos, there will be a delay in the second video, making them both out of synch. By loading the blank slide first, the next slide (containing the videos) will load into memory. Then, when you go to that slide, the videos will play together!

Now, for the result!
