Learn how to animate shapes and set an animation trigger. Author Heather Ackmann concludes this exercise by showing you how to set the animations and triggers for an interactive hotspot during a presentation.
- [Instructor] Now for the fun part,…animating the shapes to fade in on click…from presentation view.…Here is how that is going to work.…When the screen launches our x-ray shapes,…the circles that show the background fill…of the skeleton that is will not appear right away.…The viewer will have to click on Ken…or rather the animation trigger shapes…in order for our x-rays to fade in…then when the viewer clicks on that x-ray shape,…the x-ray will disappear.…
For this to be possible,…instead of setting our animations to occur…on a basic on click start entrance,…they will need to occur on click of a specific shape.…So first off, for this,…we will need our Navigation Pane open…to help us select the correct shapes…since we have shapes stacked one on top of another.…So make sure you have that Selection Pane open.…Once again, you can find that on the Home tab…in the Drawing group in that Arrange dropdown right there.…
Selection Pane.…So first, let's take our mouse and let's select Ribs.…See those little white dots appear around that image?…
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.
