Massive Glitch Resolved (now the next step)

Welcome back!! (sort of)

As you can see, The PowerPoint Blog has experienced a major glitch and went offline for awhile. The good news is, we have regained access to the blog. The better news is, we discovered the issue (malicious code injected into the WordPress database). The ironic news is, as we have ramped up our virtual meeting platform and are setting up new websites literally daily, we have not had time to look at our own websites and social media! Now that we have access, and a backup, of The PowerPoint Blog, I am reviewing new WordPress blog themes and will be updating the entire site and its catalog of posts to something new, modern, and stable. Then it is time to get into the backlog of PowerPoint and presentation posts that I have been accumulating!

Virtual Conference Review

TLC Creative Services has had another successful online conference! This event we provided the presenter Virtual Broadcast Studio to capture and live stream 43 sessions. Our design team assured presenters and their presentations where displayed on a conference branded backplate. Each session had live content switching, session countdown timers, custom presenter intro stinger videos, and more (all produced by the TLC Creative team).

It was a great conference, but it was really worth it when we receive emails like this fantastic note from a very experienced presenter who has not slowed down on the virtual event world – thanks Mike!

3D Model in PowerPoint – IBM Logo

TLC Creative is always pushing the limits of PowerPoint. A few years ago, 3D model support was introduced to PowerPoint. TLC Creative leveraged the new file format immediately for a few large corporate events where the end clients had 3D modelling assets available (making those models compatible with Office’s more limited 3D support is another topic).

Always looking to grow our design team’s skills, we are highlighting a little side project Jake on the TLC Creative design team created. This is a Microsoft Office-optimized 3D model of the IBM logo, built from a (non-3D) vector file of the logo, created in Blender.

The fun is twisting, rotating and seeing every angle when a true 3D model is added to a slide! This is a video export from PowerPoint animating the inserted 3D model using morph across a series of slides:
