Setting Video Options
Fading the video’s sound in and out
The Fade In and Fade Out controls for video clips work just as they do for
audio clips (described earlier in this chapter). In other words, they affect the
video’s sound track, not the video image itself. You can use these controls to
gradually fade the video’s sound in and out.
Adding a bookmark
A bookmark is a marked location within the playback of a video file that
can be used to trigger an animation effect. For example, a few seconds into
the video of the Apollo 11 launch shown in the previous two figures, the
announcer says “Liftoff!” and the rocket begins to rise. It’s a simple matter to
create a bookmark at that exact point in the video playback. Then, you can
use that bookmark to trigger an animation that causes the word “Liftoff!” to
appear beneath the video, as shown in Figure 15-9.
Figure 15-9: Using a bookmark to trigger an animation effect.
Here are the steps for creating a video bookmark and animating an object
when the video playback reaches the bookmark:
1. Add a video to the slide.
For this example, I added a video of the Apollo 11 launch that I
downloaded from the Internet.
2. Select the video object and then select the Video Tools Playback tab.
This tab was shown earlier in Figure 15-7.
