How To Create Explainer Video in PowerPoint Tutorial

Welcome to another easy PowerPoint animation tutorial! In this tutorial, we will replicate the captivating ‘Miner with Jackleg’ animation created by Nick on CodePen using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. We’ll achieve this in PowerPoint using effects like Flash Once, Spin Motion Path, and Fade Out. To visualize the process, we’ll embed the video tutorial and provide a link to download the presentation file.

Shapes and Selection Pane

Let’s start by exploring the shapes used in the animation. Opening the Selection Pane from the Home tab reveals the order of objects. Proper placement matters, as demonstrated by the miner’s body positioned between the legs, and the head rotating behind the jackleg machine. A custom anchor point is assigned to the miner’s head and light for precise spinning.

Animation Effects

The Animation Pane, accessed from the Animations tab, displays a comprehensive list of applied effects. Focus on the top 9 animation effects, with the rest being variations of the same three effects for smoke and fire particles.

  1. Jackleg Drill (Blink Emphasis): The drill blinks with a 0.10-second duration, repeating until the end of the slide.
  2. Head and Light (Spin): A clockwise 10-degree rotation for 1 second. To create a delay, another Spin effect is applied with a counterclockwise rotation after 3 seconds.
  3. Left Hand, Right Hand, Jackleg Machine (Left Motion Path): A brief 0.05-second Left Motion Path is applied for a shaking effect.
  4. Smoke and Fire Particles: Diagonal Motion Path, Grow/Shrink, and Fade Out effects are used with varying delay timings for each particle. Animation Painter facilitates easy replication.

Customizing Smoke and Fire

For both smoke and fire particles, similar effects are applied, but with distinct delay timings. For fire particles, the Arc Motion Path is customized using Edit Points for a unique appearance. All particles end at 5.50 seconds in the timeline.

Setting Slide Timing and Looping

To ensure a continuous loop, set the Advanced Slide Timings to 5.50 seconds from the Transition tab. From the Slideshow tab, select Setup Slideshow, and check the Loop Continuously Until Esc option.


Running the slideshow now results in a mesmerizing continuous loop of the animated scene. We hope you find this tutorial informative and useful.
