video clip ends with picture

Hello-

I have a PowerPoint 2010 presentation where one of the slides plays a full screen video clip (an avi file).  If it matters, it's set up to play "on click", but also has an animation set up so when I get to that slide it waits for me to press the space bar before it starts playing (I don't have to navigate to the "play" button with the mouse).  It's also set to not rewind at the end, so when the video completes, it stops on the last frame of the clip.  Is there a way to get it to complete the clip and as soon as it's done, display a picture file instead (.jpg)?

Thanks for any help-

I think you can use the delay option (in timing for picture entrance)  with the same time as the video clip, (the picture starts with the video with delay for the video duration)

Tre bizarre!  I wasn't sure where to put the picture.  I dropped it right on top of the video clip and then played around with the animation to get it right.  Here's what seems to be working as I described: somehow I have two animations on the slide, both numbered "1".  The first is for the video, the second #1 is for the picture.  The picture has an "Appear" animation with "Start:" set to "With Previous" and no delay.

Thanks a ton Fryezz!
