Learn how to create advanced gradients and semi-transparent shapes. Author Heather Ackmann shows you the next step in creating shine lighting animation.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we are continuing…where we left off in the previous movie.…To follow along, open the PowerPoint file…"Transparencies and Gradients" in the Exercise Files folder.…Now that we have our text layers created,…we have one more major object to create…for the shine effect, and that is our gradient rectangle…that we're going to animate with a simple motion path.…So first, we need to create that rectangle.…So going up to our Insert tab, to our illustrations group,…click on the Shapes button and click that rectangle.…
And all we have to do is draw just a simple rectangle…anywhere on that slide.…I'm going to draw mine right about here.…Next, I'm going to remove the shape outline,…don't need one for this shape,…and then I'm going to go up to my Shape Fill dropdown,…all the way down to Gradient.…Now, once again, I could choose a starting point here,…I could choose one of my variations, the light or dark,…or I could select More Gradients…and start from one of the ones here.…
Which I am going to do.…
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.
