  1. Sono/gif is awesome thank you, for a talk on Powerpoint, what is the optimum way to do the clip? File size (Twitter 15MB) or Dimensions (web)? Or does it not really matter. Cheers

    1. Honestly, I tend to just leave clips in .mp4 format for Powerpoint presentations (obviously I’m not Ben Smith, I’m just a huge fan of his). If you drag the video file from the file browser (or Finder or whatever you use on your system) onto the slide, it will embed the video file in your presentation (which means the file will be much bigger than most .ppt files, but you won’t have to worry about dumping it onto a flash drive, forgetting to move the linked videos, and coming up empty during the presentation). If you then click on the video, you can resize it to look better on the screen (they usually fill the whole slide), and you’ll also notice a little tab pop up labelled “Video Tools” or something like that. If you go to that tab and hit “Playback”, you can actually set the clip to start playing automatically rather than requiring a click of the play button and to loop automatically. You can also go to the “Format” subtab and even play with the contrast and brightness settings so your clips will show up better on the screen.
