Inserting Movie! Go Full Screen to see in greater detail?

Lights, cameras, action! It's time to put a movie into our presentation. In reality, we will add a simple animation clip to our file, but the same method applies if you have a Hollywood blockbuster stored on your computer and wanted to view it via a presentation.

The key point here is, "how do I control the way my movie file plays"? It's easy to put a movie file in a presentation, but a little harder to make sure you have the control over how it plays.


View the Movie to see how to put in an image!


The movies have been made on an Apple Computer. There are some differences with the PC, but these can be solved by using the Menus along the Top of the program window.
