- [Instructor] Hello and welcome to this week's edition of presentation tips weekly. Today, we're going to do a two for one and I'm going to basically show you how to copy and paste animations in both PowerPoint and Keynote. So whichever is your favorite presentation tool, I'm going to show you how to quickly copy and paste animations, which will save you so much time if you have a whole bunch of animations in your deck or you need to basically apply one animation to a whole bunch of objects. So all right, let's dive into it. So you see we have our animation here. I'm going to go ahead and play it. And it says copying and pasting animations in PowerPoint. And you see we have a rise up animation and a nice, little kind of turning animation, right there. So let's say we want to copy and paste these animations to these other slides here. So all we have to do is select the frame that has the animation we want. You see right here it has the one, indicating that this is the animation over here in the animation pane. This is one and two. And what we're going to do to copy that is we're going to go up to animations. And over here, we have animation painter. So if this is selected, animation painter is not active. Now, if you click that once, it's active, okay. So if we go to this next slide. And see how we get this nice sort of icon that turns from the pointer into the brush? Now we have applied that. But as you see, it's not active again if I want apply that to something else, it's not active. So, just like with other tools like this in PowerPoint, you just have to double click. So if we want to keep that animation active, all we have to do is select our frame, double click animation painter. Now that's live, so I can go ahead and apply it here, go to the next slide and apply it here. So now we've applied that animation to three slides pretty quickly. We didn't have to go and add that over here in the animation pane. It's already done. And just quickly, let's go ahead and do the same thing with the second line. So I'm going to go to double click animation painter, click that here, go to the next slide, click that, go to the next slide, click that. So now when we go through, you've got it. Now everything is in there very quickly, right? How did that weird egg boy get ep there? And what is lettuce cheese? I don't know. All right, so let's switch over to Keynote real quick and let me show you the same thing over there. All right, now we're in Keynote, we're in a totally different program. And let's say we wanted to do the same thing over here. It's in a little bit different place, but let's say we have this square here and I already have some crazy, weird animations applied to this, so let's go ahead and take a look at the animations applied. So it slides and kind of does a whole bunch of stuff, just crazy. All right, so when we click on this, you see we have these four animations here, fade and move, flip, jiggle and squish. So this was a little bit more hidden, but let's say we want to copy and paste these animations to these objects in the next slide. All we have to do is click our square and go up to the top tool bar, up here. And we're going to go to format and copy animation, okay? Simply go to the next slide. We're going to select everything we want to apply that to, go back up to format and paste animation. Now, you notice this does not have a shortcut. Copy style and paste style does and I use that all the time, but copy and paste animation doesn't, so you unfortunately have to go up to format to do that. So if you click paste animation, now all of these have the same animation. And if we play, you'll see just some insane, crazy animations going on. Now we've got our crazy square, we've got a crazy circle, and we have our crazy diamond. I just love the animations in Keynote. They're just amazing and crazy. So that's it. You got a two for today. You now how to copy and paste animations in both PowerPoint and Keynote. Hope to see you next week with more presentation tips weekly.
