Creating a PowerPoint Splash Screen
04 November 2009
Today I recorded my screen as I created a PowerPoint splash screen (or title screen) for a message series by our youth pastor. This is the sort of project I do regularly at The City Church – especially for Generation Church.
I thought it would be interesting to both document and share the video:
- You’ll notice a short pause after I launch Safari – it was inexplicably unresponsive.
- I use a lot of shortcuts – especially in Photoshop – from muscle-memory. I apologize if it’s hard to follow at times.
- I use a technique for building the title layer in order to treat it which keeps the “build” still available for editing – hence the hidden folder layer in the final document.
- I was surprised how quick and easy it was to find a perfect (free) font for the project. I expected to have to cut out a portion of the video while I searched for the right font.
