Tip for Importing Videos

When importing a video file onto a page in QuarkXPress, InDesign, or any other application, it’s best to let the program create the container for you.

In other words, don’t create a box or frame, and then import the video. Instead, choose File> Import and then click onto your page. That way, the program creates a box or frame exactly the size of the video file. If you try to import a video file into an existing container, it may be cropped — and fixing that can be challenging.
