Insert A Screen Recording in a PowerPoint 2016 Presentation
In the previous version of PowerPoint, meaning PowerPoint 13, we could take a Screen Capture and insert it in on our Presentation. Now, in PowerPoint 2016, we can even insert a Screen Recording in our Presentation, in order for us to give it a more professional look. In order to Insert a Screen Recording in our Presentation all we have to do is to continue reading. (Note that if we have PowerPoint 13, and have the most recent updates installed the Screen Recording command is also available).
First of all we must select the Insert tab and then from the right area of the ribbon named Media, we select the Screen Recording command as shown in the image below.
Once the Screen Recording command is selected a pop up window appears on the top of our Presentation where we have the following commands available:
Record: We just press the Record button in order to start recording.
Duration: We can see the actual duration of our recording
Select Area: We can select the area that we want to record.
Audio: We can turn of or on the audio.
Record Pointer: We can choose whether to record the pointer or not.
In the image below, I have chosen to start Recording, and straight away a countdown dialog box appears, notifying us in order to Stop Recording we must press the following combination of keys: Windows Logo Key + Shift + Q
Once we have finished Recording whatever we wanted and we have stopped the Recording, the Video is inserted immediately in our Presentation as shown in the image below. As I have mentioned in previous posts of mine we are able to edit the video using the Video Tools tab and specifically the Format and Playback tabs.
In the image below I have activated the Format tab, where we can see all the available commands in order for us to Format our Video.
In the image below I have activated the Playback tab, where we can see all the available commands in order for us to Edit our Video.
That is it! It is very easy to Record and Insert videos in our PowerPoint Presentation.
