Advice and answers from the Flixel Team

We all know that cinemagraphs bring static content to life on the web and social media. But did you know that the cinemagraphs you create with Flixel apps can also liven up a boring old PowerPoint presentation? Learn how you can share cinemagraphs on PowerPoint in a few simple steps.


Cinemagraph Pro

When you've completed your cinemagraph click Export and choose H.264 (MP4). You'll only need a single loop of your cinemagraph so don't increase the number of repetitions; this will help keep the file size of the cinemagraph small. If you plan on using the cinemagraph as a full-screen image, export the cinemagraph at full size. Otherwise, you can reduce it to 1/2 or smaller. 


PowerPoint

1.   Go to the slide you want to add the cinemagraph to. Select the Insert tab. You should see a video icon at the far right side of the nav bar. Select Movie from File and import your MP4.

2.   You now have your cinemagraph video on the slide. You can resize it or leave it full-screen. 

3.   Click on your video and a the Video Format tab will appear in the nav bar. Change Start to Automatically and select Loop Until Stopped. The cinemagraph video will autoplay and loop beautifully when you get to the slide during your presentation.

You can have several cinemagraphs on the same slide and add text or other graphics over it just like any object in PowerPoint.
