Learn how to animate shapes and layer objects to create the shine lighting illusion. Author Heather Ackmann demonstrates the next to last step in shine lighting animation.
- [Instructor] Just like before, we are picking up…exactly where we left off in the previous movie,…transparencies and gradients.…So in case you missed it, you can follow along now…by opening the PowerPoint file,…Animate and arrange layers, located in…the Exercise Files folder.…Now, in this file we have our text,…we have our background, and our semi-transparent gradient.…That means we are ready to animate,…so jumping over to our Animations tab…and selecting our gradient,…all we have to do now is add that motion path…to send this gradient down behind…our SHINE text.…
So, jumping over to that Add Animation button…and scrolling all the way down to Motion Paths,…and clicking on that Lines path,…there's our path.…Now if you notice, it doesn't quite go…all the way over that SHINE text.…We need to send it a little bit further,…so in this movie, we've got to manually…adjust our path.…So, we need to take our mouse,…hover it right over that red dot right there.…
There's a green dot and a red dot,…but hovering your mouse over that endpoint right there…
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.
