Hi,

We are preparing a powerpoint presentation and are including a series of small clips.  We are trying to sync the timing of the running clips and text description as to to have these display displayed in specific time within the clip.  Can this be done? Hoe?

Thank you very much!

By "small clips," I assume you mean video clips.

You can do this using trigger to bookmark.

Add a bookmark to the video. To do this, click in the video timeline and then on Video Tools Playback tab click Add Bookmark. (You can't move a bookmark, so if it's in the wrong place, select it and click Remove Bookmark then add another.)

From there, you'll animate the text. Add the animation you want -- an appear or fade is usually good -- then select the object (the textbox) and on the Animations tab, click Trigger | On Bookmark | Bookmark #.

Don't forget to add an exit animation and trigger it to a bookmark later on the timeline if you want the text to go away after a period of time (like with a label or a closed caption).

When you insert the video, it will automatically come in with a trigger animation. So all you have to do is click the movie to pause it. Or you can use the media controls that appear when you move your mouse over the clip.

Then set up your animation to happen on click.

To work it, click the movie to start it, click the movie again to pause it. Then move your mouse away from the movie and click on the slide to start the animation. Then click the movie again to resume.

We don't want to click to pause while presentation.   Ok, sorry, we think we made the question wrong.  This is what we want as the end result:
- users starts pp file
- then click 'Slide Show'
- click 'From Beginning'
- when the presentation start,
  - it will show a small movie
  - while the presentation is showing the movie, there will be text displaying info

In other words, we just want to click 'From Beginning' and have the presentation do the rest.  We don't want to pause or click anything, just 'start.

In essence. this is what we want to accomplish:  
- display a movie
- have a series of text info popping up describing specific scenes
- while the text is being shown, there are times we would like to halt the movie so we
  can display a series of text info

For example, the movie we insert in pp is around a 25 min, but since there are a series os scenes or area of the movie we need to empathize with text info, the presentation would take more that 25 min because the movie is being paused in certain areas so the descriptions can be displayed.  While all this is going in, we don't want the user to intervene with the presentation.  

We want to know how to set the presentation to display a series of text info halting the movie in certain areas for specific period of time and then when the texts has been been displayed, continue the movie.

How can we do this?

Thanks for the clarification.

This is a little difficult.

1. First start your video automatically:

A. Insert video
B. go to the animation tab
C. click Animation Pane to open the pane
D. There will be a play/pause trigger animation there that lets you click the video to start and pause it. Right-click that animation in the pane and remove it. Now the pane should be empty.
E. Select video on slide and then on Animation tab click Add Animation and choose Play.
F. On the Animation Tab, change the Start to With Previous. This starts your video automatically.


2. Add bookmarks to your video at the appropriate places.
A. Select video
B. Make sure playhead is in proper position
C. On Video Tools Playback tab, click Add Bookmark. Add the bookmarks in the places where you need to animate objects or pause video.

3. To pause the video when you come to a bookmark
A. Select the video
B. On Animation tab click Add Animation and choose Pause
C. On the Animation pane select the Pause animation. Then on the Animation tab click Trigger | On Bookmark. Select the bookmark you want to pause the video on. (Bookmark 1 in this example.)

Test to make sure the video pauses as expected.

4. Animate some text or other objects
A. Draw a textbox and type text
B. Add animation. Click the Add Animation button on the Animation tab and click Fade entrance effect.
C. Select the fade entrance animation in the animation pane and then on the animation tab change the start to After Previous.
D. Drag the textbox animation so it occurs after the video Pause trigger animation,
E. Optional: You can add a delay to the textbox animation if you want the video to pause and then the text to come in a second or so after it pauses.

Repeat those steps with exit animations as needed to remove the textbox(es).

Test.

5. Restart the video after the animation.

A. Select the video on the slide.
B. Add Animation button, select Pause
C. Click the new pause animation in the animation pane.
D. In the animation tab, change the start to After Previous
