Learn how to create stylized flip-book animations in PowerPoint. Author Heather Ackmann demonstrates several options for flip-book style animations and shows you how to design and duplicate slides quickly.
- [Narrator] If you'd like to follow along with this lesson,…you can download the exercise file…"Design and duplicate slides", otherwise,…just enjoy because this one is just fun to watch.…On this slide I have an image of a tree…and an image of a tire swing.…They are separate images.…I know this because I edited the images…so they would be that way.…Now, what we want to do here is to make it look…like this tire swing is rocking back and forth.…
Now, in Powerpoint there are a few ways…we can go about animating this,…but this video is about using our slides like a flipbook,…so I'm going to be demoing that method here.…Now, the first step is to set up our first slide.…Here I have the tire swing positioned at an angle,…rather than just hanging straight down.…That creates the sense of anticipation.…Now, we know from experience gravity's going to kick in…at any moment and start swinging the swing.…
The next step here is to create a duplicate of this slide,…and that's where we're going to start…adjusting the position of this tire swing.…
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.
