Presentations

Presenting software

I just got a question about presenting software and how to explain certain features without using these hated bullet points.

Let’s take an example. I am going to present four of the features in the video editing software Sony Vegas Video. Worst case scenario is this slide:

WorstCase

This one is slightly better and works fine as an executive summary that you can hand out after the presentation:

Better

And another one, also good as an executive summary:

Still better

But, in the presentation you are going to tell people that this software has “Unlimited amount of video tracks”, “Simple integrated video trimmer” etc.

So you make four slides. One for each point:

FourSlides

If its possible to walk up to the picture and point at it you can also do this on one slide.
