Using view modes in Prezi Video

Depending on what you want your audience to focus on, you can utilize the different view modes in Prezi Video in many creative ways when recording a video or presenting live in a video conference. Here's everything you need to know about view modes in Prezi Video!

Switching between view modes when recording or presenting live

With the Prezi Video desktop app and online editor open, you can switch between different view modes easily, whether you are preparing your content, recording a video or presenting in a video conference

Use the toggle here at the bottom of the screen to either show or hide your content.

When showing your content on screen, you can choose between three different view modes, depending on what you want your viewers to focus on.

Floating mode

Use Floating mode to show both you and your content when your visual is more like an illustration and you want your audience to focus on you and what you have to say primarily.

You should know: When importing a Prezi presentation to Prezi Video, you can only use the Full mode and the Transparent mode, the Floating mode option will be greyed out.

 

Full mode

Switch to Full mode when showing a graph or anything with a detail you want your viewers to focus on.

Transparent mode

Whether you import a Google Slides deck, PowerPoint slides or PNG visuals with a transparent background, you can create an immersive experience when building content around yourself. 

You can create and collaborate on content in Google Sides or PowerPoint specifically for the transparent view mode or simply rearrange your existing slides before importing them. When adding these slides to Prezi Video, we only remove the background, so whatever content you added to your slides will be displayed in Prezi Video as well, with you in the background.
