Slide transitions from video to slide show blank screen under new slide

Problem: When one slide consists of just a video, and the next slide has regular graphics, then when I add a slide transition at the beginning of that second slide, the video isn’t shown underneath during the transition, but instead a blank slide with the default background color. The second slide is shown on top as expected.

ActivePresenter version: 8.5.7

OS: Windows 10


Hi Charles,

You need to extend the duration of the video slide and then set your video to “Play to the End of Slide”. This will leave the last frame of the video on-screen after it finishes playing and will provide a background during the slide transition.

Hope this helps,

I’m not sure what you mean by “extend the duration of the video slide”. The video already went to the end of the slide. But I did right click on the video in the timeline and select “Play to the End of Slide” and it worked fine. Thanks for helping!
