Default Exporting slides to video gives black start screen

What I am making:
A presentation in PPT2016, to be exported as a video file that plays in loop in an other 2016 presentation.

What happens:
The exported video starts with a black screen that is not in the slides, also when I uncheck 'End with black slide' in the advanced options.
So every time the video loops to the beginning, instead of fading smoothly from a light blue screen to a light green screen, I get a fraction of black in between.



My question:
Does anyone know how I can get rid of this black frame?
How I am solving it now is trimming and fading the start of the loop video in the second presentation, but I would like to know if I can avoid the black frame when exporting the slides to video?

Thank you!
Judith.

Did you remove any transition from slide 1 before exporting the video?

Hi John!

There is a 2-second Fade on the first slide, and that transition was not removed before exporting to video.

How I tried to swim around it now, is duplicating the first slide before exporting, and trimming the looping video to start after +/- 2 seconds. Which works more ore less, but it is not very elegant of course.

Groetjes,
Judith.

A fade on slide 1 will give the black screen!
