- [Lecturer] Now we are done with most of our…formatting and animations.…We can once again move our rectangle to the front.…So let's bring back my favorite PowerPoint tool,…our Selection Pane.…So jumping back to our Home tab, to our Drawing Group,…click on the Arrange button and go all the way…down to Selection Pane.…And you know what, we're going to be using this tool…so often during this course, let's add this to our…Quick Access Tool Bar.…So let's right click and click the first option…Add to Quick Access Tool Bar.…
And now that shortcut will appear here.…And it's a toggle, we can click it to turn it on,…and click it to turn it off.…Very handy.…So over in the selection pane you can see we have…all of our objects that we created so far.…We have this Group Seven, Picture Six, Picture five.…None of these names are very descriptive.…In fact, while we're here, let's rename these objects…to make it a little bit easier for us here,…and in other panes, to identify what's what.…

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.
