Today let’s get into a super sweet PowerPoint video project using one of the Levidio PowerPoint Templates. This is the first in a series of a bunch of PowerPoint video tutorials, templates, tips, and tricks I am working on! Think of it as a specific “toolkit” you can learn from and use in your PowerPoint & Camtasia video projects.
Download the Levidio “Photography” Slideshow template for FREE HERE (no opt-in required…just grab it!). P.S. – I used a technique to embed the required fonts right into the template so you shouldn’t need to install any fonts…
Watch this video tutorial for tips and tactics for using the Levidio Photography Template. You can use this to make any kind of fun, engaging slideshow video!
Watch this video to see my finished sample using the template in action. This was super easy and fun:
Think PowerPoint templates are JUST for making PowerPoint-only videos? Think again! Watch this tutorial on how I leverage PowerPoint templates in Camtasia Studio:
Download this Camtasia Library ZIP File to use the cool “Camera Mask” Effect I did the demo of in Part 4 in your projects. To import this into your Camtasia Library just open Camtasia…go to File…Library…Import Zipped Library. Navigate to where you downloaded the file and you’re set.

I’ve got two interesting (and useful!) observations that can be used to make better PowerPoint videos for you today. Both of them are ideas I’ve borrowed (OK…ripped off) from
Andy Jenkins is a guy with mad video skills AND one of the smartest marketers around. I highly suggest you watch his latest video below and study it like I did. When you are finished, we’ll take a look at some key video tricks and I’ll show you how to do them!
WARNING: Yes, this video has no player controls and you can’t even Pause it (WTH?) so set aside about 18 minutes. It’s well worth it. Also, do NOT move your mouse outside your browser or you will be “Exit Popped” out of watching the video (WTH again!):
I’ve started my in-depth analysis of the best tips & tactics that can be “borrowed” from this excellent work. These clips are from my weekly Screencast Coaching webinar sessions. Let’s get started:
Coordinated Color “Pop” and the “Push List” Effect
I love the tactics and effects above but, of course, I’ve got a FREE TEMPLATE for you in this one:
Here’s a link to the Color Sniffer Tool : NOTE – you do NOT need this in PowerPoint 2013 or higher. These versions have a Color Picker “Eyedropper” Tool built in.
Until then, follow along and leave a comment and share!
Over the last year, I’ve had really great results and responses from my live presentations at seminars around the country. One of my favorite’s has been one called: “How To Create Your Very Own Killer Video In 45 Minutes!”
In that presentation, I use a PowerPoint template with nice design and some “pre-built” animation effects. What I found was:
I ended up using those particular effects over and over again in LOTS of PowerPoint videos since then!
So…I created a slide deck with my 4 favorite effects that I use as a template and I thought others might find it useful too.
I also had a bit of fun with this video by creating a little sound track for it in my recording studio! 😉 Here ya go:
(Viewing Tip: Change the Quality Setting to 720p HD and kick it into Full Screen)
You can open or download the PowerPoint file here:
I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts, comments, or questions.
NOTE: This template only works for PowerPoint 2010 and higher…
