For a video produced in the DIY studio you need a specific powerpoint presentation template that allows to selct a slide per fragment. The webclip2go studio hardware and software will link turn each slide slides into specific scene setting such as your background images charts, video, text and text overlay. Basically, your PowerPoint presentation controls your studio recording.

You can choose which template slides you want to apply. Simply delete slides you don’t need. Slides determine where you appear in the presentation and where your text and images will appear. Of course you can use a chromakeyed background (chromakey = transparent).

After you presented your powerpoint presentation in the DIY studio your video is finished, including a leader, your name in a lower third and an outro. No editing is needed and your video is optimized for uploading in mediasite.
