Break the awkward silence in online meetings with Walk-in Videos!

Sometimes it’s hard to find the right slide theme that matches your message. This is where background videos can offer an easy way to break free from static themes and make your presentation feel branded, focused, and really slick!

You can easily drag and drop background videos into your presentation using CustomShow. Be sure to hide those video controls once the video is added to the slide.

Steps

1

  • Add a Textbox and a Rectangle from Shape.
  • Drag-and-drop the Video.
  • Arrange the elements with the Video at the bottom, Textbox at the top, and Shape sandwiched between them.

2

  • Select the Video.
  • Use the Position properties or its edges to fit the slide
  • Right click > Arrange > Send to back
  • Set Show Video Controls to Never
  • Set Playback to Loop (or see step 6 if you have more than one video).

3

  • Select the Rectangle
  • Use the Position properties or its edges to fit the slide
  • Give Fill color (Try – #000000), set Opacity (Try – 30%)

4

  • Select a Textbox
  • Customize the text by selecting the font, and changing the font size, color, and alignment in the Character property.
  • Right-click on Textbox, and click Duplicate Element to get a textbox with the same format. Type your next message in here.

  • Let’s add Builds (animation) to Textboxes on this slide. 
  • Select Textbox 1. Choose ‘Fade’ as the Build In effect. Set Alpha from ‘0’ to ‘1’. Set Build Order to 1 and Start to ‘After Previous’. Duration: 1 sec, Delay: 1 sec, Easing: ‘Linear’.
  • Now let’s give a Build Out, so that text leaves the slide.
  • Select Textbox 1. Choose ‘Fade’ as the Build Out effect. Set Alpha from ‘1’ to ‘0’. Set Build Order to 2 and Start to ‘With Previous’. Duration: 1 sec, Delay: 5 sec, Easing: ‘Linear’. 
  • Now repeat this process for all Textboxes and give Build order in order of their appearence.

If you are using more than one video on the slide. Give the following Build for one video to Build Out and other one to Build In:

  • Select Video 1. Choose ‘Fade’ as the Build Out effect. Set Alpha from ‘1’ to ‘0’. Set Build Order  and Start to ‘With Previous’. Duration: 1 sec, Delay: 3 sec, Easing: ‘Linear’. 
  • Select Video 2. Choose ‘Fade’ as the Build In effect. Set Alpha from ‘0’ to ‘1’. Set Build Order and Start to ‘With Previous’. Duration: 1 sec, Delay: 3.5 sec, Easing: ‘Linear’.

Congratulations! You are all done!
