Controlling the Volume
Loop Until Stopped. Plays the clip over and over until you move to the next slide
or stop it using its playback controls.
Rewind After Playing. When the clip fi nishes, normally the fi nal frame remains
on-screen; marking this check box makes the fi rst frame appear again instead.
If you are using an animated GIF, it plays the number of times specii ed in its header. That could be ini nite looping
(0), or it could be a specii ed number of times. You can’t set it to do otherwise. (You can, however, delay its initial
appearance with custom animation. See Chapter 16 for details.) Other videos, such as your own recorded video clips,
have more settings you can control.
Controlling the Volume
The clip can have a different volume setting than the rest of the presentation’s audio. That
way you can compensate for a clip that is louder or quieter than the other audio in the
presentation.
To change the clip’s volume level, click the Volume button on the Video Tools Playback tab
and then choose Low, Medium, High, or Mute from the menu.
Trimming the Clip
You can trim footage off the beginning or end of a video clip from within PowerPoint 2013.
This makes it possible for you to do some rudimentary editing without having to use a
separate video-editing program.
Not all types of clips can be trimmed. If the Trim Video button is unavailable on the Playback tab, the clip you have
selected can be trimmed only by using a third-party program.
To trim a clip, follow these steps:
1. Select the clip on the slide.
2. Choose Video Tools Playback
Editing
Trim Video. The Trim Video dialog box
opens.
3. To trim off the beginning of the clip, do the following:
a. Click the Play button (right-pointing triangle) and wait until the part of the
clip plays where you want to begin.
b. Click the Pause button (the two vertical lines). A thin blue vertical line on the
timeline shows where the clip has stopped.
