In this course, author and sought-after presenter Lisa Larson-Kelley introduces Prezi, a cutting-edge tool for creating dynamic presentations. Discover how to add layers of meaning to static presentations with multimedia, spatial relationships, and movement.
The course demonstrates the features and benefits of an effective Prezi presentation, shows how to navigate the user interface, and explains how to create, animate, share, and publish a prezi. Plus, Lisa shows how to present your prezi to a remote audience, via a web browser or your desktop.
Because the Prezi canvas is a 3D space, you'll find that you'll often need to rearrange the stacking order or layering of the elements, moving some items back and others forward. Let me show you how it's done. Again, let's go to our orb chart, frame number three, and say we want this arrow here to be in front of our circle instead of behind it. I can select it by pressing Cmd+Shift or Ctrl+Shift on the PC and dragging over it. And now with it selected, I can right-click on the arrow.
Then I can choose Bring Forward, Bring to Front, Send backward or sent back. Bringing it forward will step it forward just one layer and bringing it to the front will put it on top of all other items on the canvas. So I'll go ahead and choose that. There is a visual cue that Prezi gives you when it changes the stacking order of something, so I'm going to show that to you. I'm going to move this guy up on top of the No Obstacles circle. And now when I choose Send to Back, you can see it dimmed this frame, this green circle for a second.
Showing that it interacted there and that the stacking order changed. So this is a little visual queue that Prezzi gives you for bringing attention to any objects that might be effected by your change. So the stacking or layering will start to matter more as you start adding elements to your Prezi and start zooming around. We'll dive into that in upcoming lessons.
