- [Instructor] If you'd like to follow along with this video…please download the powerpoint file Zoom With Style…located in this videos Exercise Files folder.…Because well, this one has a lot of little steps…that can be hard to remember down the line.…So trust me, you'll want to follow along with this one.…In this video we're going to be zooming into…the nucleus of our plant cell here,…but doing it the cool special way…and not just relying on the slightly imperfect,…merely adequate Shrink/Zoom animation…native in powerpoint.…
So on this slide,…the very first step to creating this Grow/Shrink effect…is to apply that Grow/Shrink effect to this nucleus.…So let's select that nucleus,…go up to our Animation's tab and apply that animation.…In the Advanced Animation group click on Add Animation…and under Emphasis click on Grow/Shrink animation.…And there you can see it doing it's magic.…Now bringing up the Animation Pane,…you can see it's added the start on click on effect,…that's fine.…

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.
