Are you tired of static, uninspiring PowerPoint presentations? It’s time to elevate your slides with dynamic animations in PowerPoint that captivate your audience. In this detailed tutorial, we’ll walk you through creating two simple yet impactful animations using shapes in PowerPoint. These animations are not only visually appealing but also easy to implement, even for beginners.
1. The First Animation: Up and Down Motion
The first animation draws inspiration from Abhishek Ghosh’s work. To begin, duplicate your slides for simplicity. Insert an oval shape, duplicate it, and apply an “Up” motion path to the first oval. Configure motion path settings like duration, auto-reverse, and repeat. Apply a “Down” motion path to the second oval with similar settings. Duplicate and arrange ovals to fill the slide, creating a mesmerizing up-and-down motion effect.
2. The Second Animation: Spinning Lines
The second animation, inspired by Andrew Bank, involves spinning lines to add a dynamic flair. Draw a short line, increase its width, and apply a “Half Spin” animation with clockwise rotation. Duplicate and arrange lines vertically, then group them. Rotate the group 90 degrees left, ungroup, and use Animation Painter to apply the same animation to horizontal lines. Adjust and duplicate lines to fill the slide, resulting in an intriguing spinning animation.
3. Looping the Animation
Extend the animations by duplicating slides and alternating clockwise/counterclockwise spins. Set transition timings for smooth transitions between slides. Configure the slideshow to loop continuously, creating a seamless and captivating visual experience.
Tips and Tricks
