  13. 13. Animations & Transitions PowerPoint: Setting Animations and Transitions • Animations--effects that make text and other screen items move, appear, and disappear--can, at the best of times, significantly enhance a presentation and focus the audience's attention on the point or points you'd like them to be focusing on. Unfortunately, it's also an inherent quality of animations that they can render an otherwise sober presentation silly, disrupting the presentation's pace and distracting the audience. • The best way to ensure that your animations are helpful rather than harmful is to set them, insofar as is possible, at the template level in the slide master. A few animations, such as those that might be required for individual images that do not appear on every slide will still have to be set on a one-at-a-time basis, but by setting the majority of your animations at the template level, you can ensure that your audience doesn't become bewildered by an inconsistent barrage of differing transitions and motions.
  14. 14. Benefits • Benefits of adding animation and slide transitions: • They provide visual interest to your presentation and grab the audience's attention (as long as they are not overused). • You can reveal points on slides in a staggered way (i.e. one bullet displayed at a time) to keep the audience focused only on the point which you are discussing at the given time. • You can automate the presentation so it runs on its own.
  15. 15. Adding Transitions Slide transitions control how your presentation moves from slide to slide  In either the Slide Sorter or Normal view, select the slide or slides which you want to apply the transition to.  From the menu ribbon, select the Transitions tab.  The most commonly used animations will appear in the center. To preview more transition options, click the down arrow.   To preview a transition, click on the Preview button in the upper-left hand corner of the window. Select a transition from the list. Clicking it will apply the transition to the slide. You can also select Apply to All to apply the same transition to all your slides. In the Duration option, enter the speed at which you want the transition to play. 
  16. 16. Adding Transitions  In the Sound field, use the drop-down menu to select a sound to play during a slide transition, if desired.  Indicate how you want the slide transition to occur by selecting an option under the Advance Slide heading. Select On mouse Click if you want the transition to take place when you click the left mouse button. Select Automatically After if you want the transition to occur after a specified time. Use the up and down arrow keys in the blank box to specify the number of seconds which should pass before the transition takes place.  
  17. 17.  Animation refers to how individual options on your slide move onto or off of the slide.  In either the Slide Sorter or Normal view, select the objects within a slide that you want to apply the animations to. From the menu ribbon, select the Animations tab.    Select an animation, customize your play speed, and set your sound preferences. Click Preview to play the animations.
  18. 18. You can create custom animations to specify exactly what you want to animate and how it should be done. • Select the slide which you want to apply the animation to. • From the menu bar, select the Animations tab and the Animation Pane button. The Animation Pane appears on the right side of the screen. • If you previously selected an animation for an element on the page, the animation for it will be shown. • Click on an element of the slide that you want to animate. For example, you could select a title, bulleted list, or graphic.
  19. 19. • Click Add Effect. A menu appears with a list of effect categories. Entrance effects control how the element enters the slide. Emphasis effects make the element do something after it enters the slide. Exit effects control how it leaves the slide. Motion paths allow you to specify where the element travels on the slide. • Select one of the effects. Details about the effect appear in the Animation Pane. • In the Start field, use the drop-down menu to select an event which will trigger the animation. With Previous means the animation will occur at the same time as the previous animation on the slide or it will occur when the slide appears if there are no previous animations. After Previous means the animation will occur after the previous animation. • Use the lists in the Animation Pane to adjuct options such as animation speed and direction.
