In this tutorial, you will learn how to make the motion of a leaf moving in the wind. It can be easily done with the combinations of Motion Path, Spin and Swivel Effects.
You are making a slide show which runs automatically throughout your presentation without the needs of mouse clicking or entering of keyboard. The automatic slideshow can be photographs presentations and etc. In every slide, you realize that the slide advances to another slide immediately after the last animation ends. The result? Audience does not have the chance to read your slides because it moves too quickly. You will need to make some delay so that all your slides will pause for a while before going to the next one. There are few ways to achieve this. This tutorial will cover two simple methods.
Here are some presentations or showcase that I have done. Note that presentations found here do not include tutorials. If you are looking for tutorials, please go to the Tutorials Section instead.
PowerPoint Heaven is a website providing tutorials on animating Microsoft PowerPoint. Over the years, Microsoft PowerPoint has become a widely-used software in presentations. Example such as schools, have adopted PowerPoint as the programmes for student to present their projects and assignments to the class. PowerPoint is a wonderful software for presenting your works, likewise, it can also be a disaster if you fail to understand the purpose of the animations.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a simple traditional countdown animation in 5 slides (I normally call it a Slide By Slide animation). This is achievable in a single slide (Stacking animation), but to reduce the difficulty, I will show you a simple one which can be editable easily at a later time.
I have experimented many ways to create a spiral effect on text. This requires the overlapping technique. The simplest way is to make use of Pinwheel Entrance effect to do the job, while the best way to create the most realistic impact is to have combination of different effects. The drawback on creating spiral effect is that it only works well on high-end computers, while on older computers, you may experience retrograde effect. The best solution is to keep the text small.
The solution to fading in from 0% to 50% is simple, but depending on what are you fading. As far as I know, the Emphasis (Transparency) animation will never work because it makes an object translucent/transparent immediately. Even if you combine it with Entrance (Fade) or Exit (Fade) animations, the effect will not work effectively. Do take note that this tutorial does not apply to animating the text.
