How to advance automatically to next slide after a movie clip!

Would like to know how to setup my slide show in the following way:

I have one slide which contains a movie file. After the movie clip finishes

playing I would like the presentation to automatically move on the the next

slide... Currently, when the movie clip finishes, the slide just stays there

with a black box (where the movie was shown). All my other slides are

manually advanced to the next slide, but just for this one slide that

contains the movie clip I would like to automatically advance to next slide.

Thanks for any help / ideas!

    • You can simply set that one slide with a timed transition. Find out the

      length of the video clip, open the transition menu from the Slide Show

      menu, and you should find a couple of check boxes near the bottom of

      the task pane. One says "On mouse click", and the other says

      "Automatically after". Check "Auto after" and set the timer below to

      the length of your clip. You may have to tweak the timing a bit to get

      it just right.

      Hope that helps.
