Graphic Design & Branding tutorial: Create interactive PDFs

03. Select your frame, or an existing image if you want to replace the image with video, then choose File > Place and locate your video file. InDesign will place your video within the frame just as with other contents you can import. Note that video cannot be exported when skewed or set at an angle; the frame must be at 0º rotation.

04. The same fitting options are available for video as images. You can use the shortcut Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + Shift + C to fill the frame with the video proportionally, or if you can’t remember the shortcuts right-click (Ctrl + click) on the video frame and choose Fitting > Fill Frame Proportionally.

05. The video is now imported and ready to be part of your final PDF, but there are a few settings we can alter to ensure the video behaves the way we want. Double-click on the video frame to open the Movie Options dialog box. This box offers a range of useful options so let’s look at each in turn.
