Media in your powerpoint presentation
The club's data projector has a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. TTC recommends that you compress the media in your presentation to provide a better experience
To ensure you presentation includes media files you can export it
- Insert a Video from your PC, do not link to video files
- if showing a folder of photos instead of a slide-show, the slides will display in alphabetical order of the image name
- image names will need to have been numbered as 001, 002, 003 etc (not 1, 2, 3 otherwise the slides will be shown 1, 10-19, 100, 2, 20-29, 200 etc), or dated yyyy-mm-dd hh.ss
