Placing objects in front of Video in Powerpoint 2003

by chaingang / July 11, 2005 9:12 AM PDT

I want to place text of animation over the video I inserted. Is there a way to send the video to back and keep the objects on top of the video.

While you didn't share the video source type, almost all video plays via a directx and as such removes what you ask as a (easy) possibility.

However, if the source video is .AVI or any number of standard video you could use a video editor program to add the overlay text and use your new video instead.

An odd yes method.

Look up the solutions to SUBTITLING VIDEOS with this Google.

-> It's not a direct solution and in my opinion can be harder than (re)creating your video proper, but I offer it as another possibility.

--> The second downside to using a subtitle filter is that it won't work on other machines very well. Setup is a _____!

Im using WMV file format, I kinda figured nothing would overlay in presentations, I guess ill have to do it in movie maker 2. I just cant use the animation gifs that I wanted.

Thanks for your help....

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
