Presentation Work in Orlando

Presentation design can take you many places, and work with some of the best people ever! Earlier this year TLC Creative provided the onsite GFX support for a multi-ballroom corporate event in Orlando. All went great, and we had a great time (no pictures of Lori & Troy’s extended stay day at Epcot!).

  1. Main ballroom where big screens and big presentation content are back!
  2. Lori backstage developing the ultrawide presentations (we used a 58″ x 28″ PPT slide size setup for the event)
  3. The graphics team escaping to Enzo’s Hideaway (a not so hidden resteraunt at Disney Springs)
  4. A week of work, and a lot of presentation computers as Troy & Lori head to the airport (and we shipped the other cases of gear!)
  5. Hey, it’s Orlando, had to share some Mickey Ears!

Clipchamp – Creating a Dynamic Presentation Title Slide

Clipchamp is a video editing app purchased by Microsoft that TLC will be using in the future to do quick, simple video editing for our PowerPoint presentations. In this post, we will be creating a speaker intro video “slide.” We will be exporting a template background from PowerPoint and use it as a video to show a seamless integration.

Export your PPT background to upload to Clipchamp or if you already have the file, you do not need to export it from PPT but make sure it’s the same crop & size. Here I’m saving out a headshot image.

 

Create a new video from your Clipchamp dashboard.

Upload your media. Here I’m using an exported headshot from my PPT slide. When your files are done uploading, drag your media onto the timeline.

Add text by clicking on the Text tab from the left-hand side of the menu.

Select your desired text effect and drag it to the timeline. Edit text, font, colors, and more in the top bar menu when your text is selected.

 

When you’re done, export your video at the highest resolution possible.

A new screen will render your video and you can save it to your computer.

Open up PowerPoint and insert your new video.

Size the video to take up the entire width & height of your slide. Send your video to back so you can add more text or images if needed.

Here is an example of our slide in action:

Clipchamp – Is It Free?

Clipchamp is confusing – at least right now. It has a free plan. It has levels of paid plans. For this blog series, everything has been created using the free plan. The paid plan does not look to add more capabilities, but additional resources; video, audio, images and cloud storage.

 

The pricing page of the website lists 4 levels of pricing and plans, each monthly and yearly billing available.

I believe the free plan has the video editing options needed for presentation needs.

Clipchamp EXTRA

To add text, click on the text tab on the left-hand side. Here I’ve selected the text animation “Quick Peek”. You can move it’s placement on the screen by selecting it, and a teal outline will appear.

A new window will appear. This is where you will edit your video. You can start from scratch or choose one of Clipchamp’s templates.

Don’t forget to name your file!

Import your media. Here I’ve imported a video to use as a background and our TLC logos.

Drag your media and place it on the timeline.

To add a transition effect, click on the transitions tab on the left-hand side. Choose a transition and drag it in-between two videos or images.

Here I’ll add a transition to the two logos. Our TLC logo will first appear white, then transition into color.

To add music, click on the Music & SFX tab. There is free music included in the free plan. You can type in “Free” to narrow down the free music available. Find a tune you like and drag it into the timeline or click on the teal plus sign button in the corner.

Click on volume or fade to adjust some of the music’s settings.

The graphics tab lets you add some extra content and features to your video. See more options by scrolling over the last square. Graphics will appear in your timeline at the top as a pink bar. You can change the length by pulling on the side of this bar.

Backgrounds- You can add a colored background to your timeline.

Overlays- You can add animated overlay effects and change the color of them. Add a filter to the color, adjust it’s exposure, saturation, temperature and contrast, and add a fade in/out effect.

GIPHY – Add a GIF to your video.

Stickers – Add a sticker to your video.

When you’re done editing your video, click export to choose your output resolution. A new screen will appear while your video is rendering.

When it’s done you’ll have the option to save it to your computer or upload it to a social media or cloud site.

 

Here is what our final video looks like:
