WOW…there a a bunch of new PowerPoint video templates from some really talented designers like Instavid and RootPixel coming out lately!
Complex and intricate animations and stunning special effects that will leave you asking, “This is PowerPoint??”
Check out == > Magic Video 3.0 PowerPoint Templates (with BONUSES!)
But how do you take the template and modify it with your own content keeping all that animation goodness intact?
Here’s a short tutorial with some top tips for modifying almost any of the new cool PowerPoint video templates:
This tutorial uses some of the new templates from the Magic Video v3.0 Package. Here are a few more samples I created in about 10 – 15 minutes each:
There are TONS of things you can do with templates like these in addition to modifying them as is. You can create single slide intos / outros, motion graphics, and even save individual elements as graphics (like the “filter” in the Parallax template) to use in Camtasia.
I’ll create a few more detailed tutorials covering how to do that and some more tips & tricks in future posts.
I mentioned in the video that trying to use the music tracks is tough. I mute the audio clips and add them in Camtasia afterwards.
Speaking of Camtasia, be aware that there is a known issue with MP4 videos Exported from PowerPoint and Camtasia version 9. They contain “glitches” or weird artifacts. My workaround is to Save As and Windows Media File (WMV) from PowerPoint and they seem OK in CS 9. The MP4’s from PPT work fine in Camtasia 8…go figure.
Also, the tutorials for Magic Video 3.0 are kinda weak but you can get the idea of how to edit the templates.
