Learn the second method for animating text in PowerPoint—by each text box.
- [Instructor] Welcome back.…In this movie, we're going to be building off…what we learned in the previous movie…by animating our text boxes a slightly different way.…This time, individually, word by word,…text box by text box.…If you'd like to follow along,…open up the Animate each text box file,…located in the Exercise folder.…Or just open a blank presentation…and create some text boxes with some words in it.…Either way's fine.…
Now, there are a couple of ways…to animate these text boxes quickly.…One way is to apply all of your animations…to one text box first, and then use…the animation painter to copy those animations…over to the other text boxes.…So selecting our first text box Here,…we can go up to our Animations tab…and apply what animations we want.…In this case, we're going to apply a simple Fade entrance.…Then, with that text box still selected,…we can go up to our Animation Painter,…and not just click once, but double-click on it…to kind of turn it on permanently.…
And then we can take our mouse…and click on subsequent text boxes…
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.
