This video demonstrates how to animate the motion of objects between slides in PowerPoint.
- [Instructor] PowerPoint in Office 2019 and Office 365 features a new transition type called Morph which allows you to smoothly animate objects from one slide to the next. To use the Morph transition, there needs to be at least one object in common between the two slides for which you are creating the effect. The easiest way to do this is to either duplicate the first slide and then alter the object on the second slide by moving it, resizing it, and so on, or you can copy and paste a single object from the first slide to the second slide. I'll select this photo of this dog here and copy it, and we'll paste it onto the second slide.
And on this slide we'll make the image a little bit larger, and we'll reposition it a bit. In addition to images, you can also morph text, shapes, SmartArt, WordArt, and charts. To add the Morph transition, select the second of the two slides over there in the thumbnail pane. Then under the Transitions tab, select Morph. From the Effects Options menu, choose the type of transition you'd like the apply. In this case, we'll select Objects, but notice you can also morph words and individual characters if you're working with text.
And selecting that shows us a preview of the effect. We can see that again if we go back to the first slide and go into slideshow mode. And here's some Morph transition. The Morph transition is an effective way to visually tie two slides together, helping you carry a thought or talking point across your slides.
