Learn how to insert and format shapes to mimic the slide background. Author Heather Ackmann walks you through the next steps necessary for creating an interactive hotspot during a presentation.
- [Narrator] In the previous movie we prepared…our images, we added our X-Ray to our background…of the slide and added Ken on top of that X-Ray.…The next step is to add four shapes.…The two shapes that we will be using…to cut through our Ken doll allowing…us to see through his physique to his organs and skeleton.…I know that sounds really creepy,…but bear with me for a moment.…The other two shapes we'll be using…as invisible animation triggers.…I told you things are about to get more complicated.…
First let's start with our X-Ray shapes.…Let's go up to our insert tab to our shapes…in our illustrations group and click…on this oval shape right here.…That's going to turn our cursor into a drawing cursor…and holding down shift while we draw…will create our perfect circle.…Now we can move that circle anywhere…over Ken here and I'm just going to aim…that right over his chest.…
Now to format this shape let's right click…right on top of that shape and go all the way…down to format shape.…Now instead of this solid fill,…we're going to be choosing this option right here,…
Heather begins with a primer on PowerPoint animation, helping you understand when—and when not—to incorporate animations into a presentation. She then goes into the building blocks of animating in PowerPoint: layering objects, working with background images, animating text, playing with lighting effects, and zooming with style. She shows how to animate with transitions, and walks viewers through the creation of three sample projects: a spinning globe animation, an animated timeline, and a flip-book. Heather wraps up by showing you how to put the finishing touches on a presentation by animating to music, automating playback, and exporting your PowerPoint file as a video.
