A video presentation is quite convenient when you can't attend a meeting which you are supposed to. If there is no Q&A session, you can even go to sleep since the video presentation can say everything for you. And if you are too shy to speak in public, making a video presentation and playing it in front of everyone else is a way to save you.
However, many people don't know how to make a video presentation. That's why we write this article - to show you how to make a video presentation, or how to record the whole process of your presentation as a playable video. Read the whole article and find a proper way.
Advantages of a Video Presentation Compared to a Typical One
As a video presentation contains images, graphics, and texts combined with narration and sound effects, people can illustrate information more easily than they do with a slide. There are some other advantages, let's have a look.
- More audience: A video presentation can be posted online to reach a broader range of viewers.
- More persuasive: Videos rely on audio-visual storytelling, people retain better the information they glean from videos, making them more convincing.
- Less awkwardness: People who are afraid of speaking in public can avoid the awkwardness of standing on the stage.
- Relationship building: People are more likely to trust you and build a relationship with you through in-person interaction. A video can be seen as a kind of face-to-face interaction.
Part 1. Make a Video Presentation with PowerPoint
Since many of us present with a slide, if you don't need narration for this video, the easiest way to make a video presentation is to save your PowerPoint slides into a video format. But if you need narration, you can record your voice before saving the slide as a video. Here's what you need to do to make a video presentation with PowerPoint:
Step 1. Open the presentation, go to "File" on the PowerPoint toolbar and select "Export" to view the export options.
Step 2. In the "Export" menu, select "Create a Video". Then you can choose to add a narration to the presentation or not.
Step 3. In the drop-down menu, choose to export the presentation "with narration" (you've already recorded it) or "without". If you want to record a narration at this point, click "Record Timings and Narration".
Step 4. Set the duration of each slide. Manage the speed of the demonstration in the small drop-down menu.
Step 5. Click on the "Create video" button to start downloading your slides as a video.
