Learn how to animate objects in a straight, smooth line or path. Author Heather Ackmann walks you through how to apply simple motion paths to grouped objects and adjust the animation effect options to suit your animation needs.
- [Instructor] Have you noticed how little…animating we've done so far?…Funny, isn't it?…In a course about animation there is a surprising amount…of non-animating that must be done…before we can get to animating.…But that is how it is in PowerPoint…and in other programs too.…Anyway, let's go ahead and resize and position our map,…so it is on top of our globe where we want it…at the start of our animation sequence,…'cause we don't want a bunch…of empty blue space in our world,…that just wouldn't make sense.…
Now the earth spins this way, to the right,…so we need to position our map to the left…of our globe and apply a motion path…that's going to send our map to the right…where we want it to be.…Selecting our image and going up to our Animations tab…you will find all of those wonderful animations,…those motion paths, here in the Animations section.…Now for Animations there are two areas…where you can apply Animations…and this is confusing to a lot of new users to PowerPoint.…
All of the Animations that you see here in this area…
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.
