Video Tutorial: The Wheel Within A Wheel Animation in PowerPoint

Understanding the Concept

Imagine a presentation where wheels within wheels come to life, creating a visually stunning effect. This animation technique involves strategically placing and animating grouped objects to give the illusion of wheels spinning within one another.

To grasp this concept more vividly, let’s break it down step by step.

Step 1: Opening the Presentation

After opening the presentation, the key is to explore the Selection Pane. This backstage view allows you to inspect both visible and invisible objects, unveiling their relative positions on the slide.

Step 2: Exploring Grouped Objects

In the Selection Pane, observe three grouped objects. However, on the slide, you’ll discover four Hollow Shapes, each progressively smaller, creating a captivating wheel within a wheel appearance.

  • Group 1: The largest wheel containing a smaller wheel within. Expand Group 1 to reveal two hollow shapes, one larger and one smaller.
  • Group 2: Even though it appears as a single object, expand Group 2 to discover a subgroup with the same Bigger and Smaller Wheels as Group 1, plus a third Smallest Wheel cleverly hidden with the No Fill and No Outline trick.
  • Group 3: Expand this group to find two sub-groups with the familiar wheels, including a tiny last wheel visible on the slide.

Step 3: Animation Magic

Head to the Animation Pane, and there it is—the Spin animation magic applied to all three groups. A 360-Degree Counterclockwise rotation, 4 seconds of pure animation bliss, and Repeat Until End of Slide for that extra flair.

Step 4: Witness the Spectacle

Toggle the visibility of the groups in the Selection Pane and witness the synchronized dance of four wheels. Each smaller wheel twirls at the edges of its predecessor, creating a visually stunning effect.
