Levidio v5 PowerPoint Templates Review

PowerPoint! I love it! And not just because I’ve been using it since before it shipped to the public (as a Microsoft engineer in the early 90’s) but because it is an excellent tool for creating visual video content.

And what I REALLY love is that there are now lots of templates being created that let us create visually stunning videos (I’m talking ala Adobe After Effects) with just some simple modifications!

Levidio version 5 from RootPixel is a great example:

Check out Levidio with MY EXTRA BONUSES==> Levidio v5 PowerPoint Templates

Let’s get into some samples, tutorials, and my pros & cons of the product.

SAMPLES:

I was asked by the RootPixel guys to do a testimonial (if I liked the product of course!) and I thought I’d use one of the templates to do that!

Here’s another one that I created in a few minutes:

GIMMIES:

For the most part, these are very easy to modify and there’s a good variety of templates to choose from including InstaGram videos, advertising & banner videos,  and other PowerPoint graphics templates (like YouTube thumbnails).

The coolest thing is that the templates are designed to make it easy to modify elements by using things like SmartArt. You actually CAN get very usable results without a bunch of monkeying around.

There’s really not much else to say on the plus side…the animations are awesome.

GOTCHYAS:

As with any of these kinds of templates, there are some things to watch out for and things that aren’t deal-breakers but that I wish were better:

  1. Some images you use to modify the templates need to be certain sizes to work well i.e. either widescreen or tall. I wish there was a doc with each template outlining what the recommended dimensions are (and a list of how many you need).
  2. Timing is always an issue with these templates! If you want slides to stay on screen longer for example, there is no elegant way to do that because PowerPoint doesn’t have a real timeline. The solution is to Export the modified template as a video and use Camtasia to Extend Frames and/or Clip Speed at appropriate points.
  3. Levidio 5 comes with video tutorials and they are “OK” but…not quite as structured or complete as I would like and since English is not the guys first language, you’ll need to listen carefully and probably a couple of times…
  4. All the templates have an audio background music track. Great for slideshow or some kinds of promo videos but you can really make these useful by deleting the music icon and using narration to deliver your message. Add a low volume music background if you like in Camtasia.

I’ve done lots of tutorials in the past on using these kinds of templates. Here’s a list that includes other PowerPoint video products in addition to Levidio but that demonstrate certain techniques that you can use for any animated templates. There are even some FREE templates scattered in here::

  1. “How To Modify PowerPoint Templates”
  2. “Working With Levidio PowerPoint Templates”
  3. “2 Mistakes When Using PowerPoint Templates”
  4. “Using Innovative PowerPoint Templates For Video”

RECOMMENDED!

I like this package and can highly recommend Levidio v5:

Free Levidio Transition Effect for Camtasia

Here’s a quick tutorial on using Levidio PowerPoint Templates and a way to leverage some of the sweet visual assets into components you can add to your Camtasia Library.

I love templates like this but there are some issues with how they are constructed (when it comes to creating videos with them). You just needs to know a few things and how to work around them…more on that in other posts. 😉

For now, this will give you an idea of what I’m talking about and some tactics & stuff you can use right away:

PresenterMedia

PresenterMedia PowerPoint Integration Tool is Awesome

There are some tools and resources I use when making PowerPoint (and Camtasia) videos that would simply CRUSH me productivity-wise if I didn’t have them.

At the top of that list is PresenterMedia.

I know…I talk about it all the time but in this 8 minute mini-webinar, I talk about how PresenterMedia integrates directly into PowerPoint to act as an images, template, video background clips search engine to quickly find visual content for my video projects.

Here ya go:

You can also create great custom images and video clips also!

Check it out yourself. Click HERE or the image below.

Have fun!
