In PowerPoint, there are plenty of options to enhance your movie clips. These may make your original movie clip appear entirely different from what you started with! The fact that you can make your movies look so different in PowerPoint 2011 with customizations galore can sometimes prove to be a disadvantage, especially if you want to get rid of all customizations and get back to the original state of your movie clip. Fortunately, the Reset option is just what you need at this point in time!

However, do note that the Reset option won't undo any of the Resize, Rotate, and Flip modifications you might have applied to your movie clip. In this tutorial, you will learn how to restore a movie clip to its default appearance, and get rid of any customizations (other than resize, rotate, and flip) you may have applied:

  1. Open your presentation, and navigate to the required slide where you have already inserted a movie clip, and select the movie clip. In Figure 1, below, you can see that our movie clip has a Poster Frame applied. However, adding Poster Frame is entirely optional. This will just help you to view the effect of applying various movie enhancing options, without playing the movie every time.

  3. When your movie clip is selected, you will see the Format Movie tab of the Ribbon as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, above. Click this tab to access the various options you see in Figure 1. If your movie clip is not already customized, go ahead and apply some customization using these Format Movie tab options. The movie clip that you see within Figure 2 has been Recolored, has a Movie Style applied, and also has a Reflection effect applied.

  5. Now, let us get back the movie to its original state. Within the Format Movie tab, click the Reset button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 3, below.
  6. Reset button within the Adjust group

  7. This will get your movie clip back to its original status, as shown in Figure 4, below. Note that it is exactly same as the movie clip that you saw earlier in Figure 1.

  9. Reset and the Poster Frame

  10. When the Reset option is used, the inserted movie is reset to exactly the state it was when inserted for the first time. The only exception though is that any Poster Frame you added will not be removed. To remove the Poster Frame, you need to use a separate Reset option for Poster Frames, as explained in our Poster Frames for Movies in PowerPoint 2011 tutorial.
  11. Make sure to save your presentation often.

Reset Resize, Rotate, and Flip Options

If you want to reset any of the resize, rotate, and flip options applied to your movie clip, you can always manually set them back to default. For more information about how to use these options, refer to our Resize, Rotate, and Flip Movies in PowerPoint 2011 tutorial.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
