Learn how to zoom and shrink animation in PowerPoint. Author Heather Ackmann demonstrates zoom/shrink animations and discusses ways around some of this feature's disappointments.
- [Narrator] The grow shrink animation…is an animation that has been around for quite some time,…and although there have been some improvements…to the animation engine in PowerPoint…over the last handful of years or so,…this is one animation that is still met with…a lot of criticism within the PowerPoint community…because it just doesn't perform as expected…or at least as well as one would like.…That said, there are some tricks around its shortcomings.…Let me show you what I'm talking about here.…
So on this slide, I have two objects,…a shape over here and a picture over here,…and I have attached the grow shrink animation…to both of them.…Now in slideshow view, let me jump over there really quick,…let me show you what happens when I launch this animation.…The animation works, but it doesn't look great…regardless of the type of object I am enlarging,…vector shape or image.…
The final image after it grows looks blurry…and a bit pixelated.…Not ideal in this day and age of high-definition.…So are we going to settle for that?…
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.
