Hi, my name's Rich Harrington, and welcome to this course on animating within Powerpoint. Today, we're going to explore using transitions, builds, and other animation types. In order to do this, I want to encourage you to explore all the things that Powerpoint has to offer. But remember, showing a little bit of restraint is often a good practice when designing. I'm going to walk you through how to use different types of animations throughout your presentation. Whether it's building text on the screen, transitioning between slides, setting custom timings for animations on charts, even the control of media playback for things like audio files, or video clips.
There is a lot of things to cover. So let's get started.
