In this PowerPoint tutorial, you’ll learn how to create ‘animated slides’ in your PowerPoint presentation.
POWERPOINT TUTORIAL VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
Hi, this is Ana Hoffman with Content Boomerang, and in this PowerPoint tutorial, I’ll show my Content Boomerang students how to How to Create an Animated Slide Sequence.
PowerPoint transitions and animations are great.
Unfortunately, they don’t work in most document-sharing sites you’ll be uploading your PowerPoint presentation to, including SlideShare.
The good news is I am going to show you a simple workaround that will make your slides appear to have every bit of the same viewer-captivating powers as the actual PowerPoint animations.
First, let me show you some examples of what an animated PowerPoint slide sequence might look like.
Imagine you are flipping through a PowerPoint SlideShare presentation and see…
…and here’s my favorite way to use animated slides – as a closing.
As a matter of fact, that’s how I close every one of my PowerPoint presentations, and you’ll see why.
Creating an animated sequence in PowerPoint is the simplest, yet the most powerful and effective way to emphasize your closing Call to Action in a slide deck.
With that said, let me show you how to create an animation effect in PowerPoint.
Your ‘animated’ sequence will consist of 2 or more slides, each adding a new element to the previous one.
POWERPOINT TUTORIAL STEP 1. And we are going to start by creating the last slide first.
Let’s take the following sequence from my Emoji Marketing slide deck as an example: …
I’ll start by creating the last slide, marked #1. Let me walk you through the slide elements:
1. in the very background, there’s an image
2. followed by a black overlay with 50% opacity
3. then the Traffic Generation Café logo with 50% opacity
4. text box 1
5. text box 2
And by the way, what you’ve just seen is an animated slide sequence as well, since this video was first created as a PowerPoint presentation, and is now being repurposed as a video in front of your very eyes.
Yep… the power of recontent…
The first 4 elements in the slide (including text box 1) will remain unchanged throughout the sequence (I call them ‘fixed elements’).
Thus, text box 2 is what I’ll be working with to create the animation effect.
By the way… (POWERPOINT TUTORIAL PRO TIP)
Always design the element containing animations as a standalone unit.
For instance, I could’ve added ALL the text in the slide to ONE text box.
However, separating it into two boxes – text box 1 with text that will remain fixed throughout the sequence and text box 2 that will be animated – will make designing the sequence a lot easier.
You’ll see this tip at work a bit later.
In text box 2, I chose to break up the text into 3 lines – one stat per line.
That would give me 4 slides in the sequence: Slide 1 containing only the fixed elements, plus 3 animated slides, each adding one line of text at a time.
By the way, Make sure every slide element is designed and positioned exactly the way you want it to be before moving on to the next step.
POWERPOINT TUTORIAL STEP 2. Duplicate the base slide
Now that the base slide is done, I’ll duplicate it (copy it, in other words) until I reach the number of slides I need to complete the sequence.
Once again, In this example, I’ll add 3 more slides to the base one – 4 slides in all.
If my sequence consisted of 2 slides, I’d only have to duplicate the slide once.
And yes, all slides will be identical.
To duplicate a slide, click on its thumbnail to the left to highlight it, then press Ctrl + D in PowerPoint for Windows or CMD (⌘) + D in PowerPoint for Mac.
Now, the animation fun begins.
POWERPOINT TUTORIAL STEP 3. Delete animation elements in Slide 1
Remember ALL slides in the sequence are currently identical.
And this is what they’ll look like in the end.
It’s now time to start working on Slide 1. SLIDE 1 is my ‘bare minimum’ slide –
…it should only include the fixed elements of the sequence.
Thus, I’ll delete text box 2.
(This is where breaking down the text into two boxes came in handy! 😉)
POWERPOINT TUTORIAL STEP 4.
Sorry, youtubers – this PowerPoint tutorial transcription was too long… you’ll have to come to Content Boomerang to get the rest!
And by the way…. have you noticed that this entire video was a compilation of slide animations? If you want ideas on how you can use this awesome PowerPoint trick, just go back and see how many variations you can pick up, Content Boomeranger!
I am Ana Hoffman and I’ll see you in Content Boomerang.
