Even if you are a Beginner and have not tried much of the animation stuff but still I will insist you read this article on How To Make Seal Animation in PowerPoint 2016 / 2019 / Office 365 using Morph Transition. This tutorial is not only about creating a Seal Animation but you will also learn how you can use the Morph Transition with some well-designed characters to easily create motion in them.
- For instance, take a look at the Outlined View and list of objects used in Selection Pane for the Seal Character in Figure 1.1:
You can watch my playlist on How To Use Shape Tools in Microsoft Office (Word / PowerPoint) to learn how to draw these kinds of characters using various Shape and Formatting Tools.
- The additional circles that you are seeing along with the body parts of the seal have been defined so that later we can easily rotate the objects to a particular point as you can see in Figure 1.2:
The body parts which are in motion should be drawn separately #ListenMicrosoft as you cannot apply different animations to grouped objects in PowerPoint like we have drawn the Tail, Phin, and Body separately.
- Once you have your character ready, just duplicate the first slide as shown in Figure 1.3:
- On the 2nd Slide, you can easily rotate the Tail, Phin or Body by selecting the Outer Ovals and rotate them.
The Point is: Make 5 duplicates (Total 6 Slides) of the first slide and change the position of Tail, Phin, Body, and Mustache on each of the duplicated slide as shown in Figure 1.5:
- The final step is to apply the Morph Transition on 5 duplicated slides (Slide No. 2 to 6) with a Duration Timing of 0.05 Seconds and Advance Slide set to After with 0.05 Duration.
In the second presentation, we used the PowerPoint Effects to create the same Seal Animation using Motion Paths and Spin animation. People, who don’t have PowerPoint 2016/2019 or Office 365 Subscription can use this presentation.
If you don’t have Morph Transition available in your PowerPoint and you want to create some different animation then you can download the presentation from the link below and can draw or insert new objects as required and Morph Transition will still work.
I hope you got The Teacher Point!
