Video in DPS

Aug 7, 2012 8:33 AM

I have a video that I want to use in my folio. Is there a way to conform that video to fit the shape of its placeholder? For example, an oval.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you,

    Yes, you need to create a "super overlay" that masks the video. For example, create your oval, lay it over the video overlay, and then create an MSO of that oval with Auto Play set to play one time. The oval slideshow will continue to cover the video while it plays. There is an example of this in the Advanced Overlays issue of the free DPS Tips app.
