Add Animation To Your Objects In PowerPoint

Sometimes, in order to get your ideas across in a PowerPoint presentation, you need objects in a slide to build. You may need one object appear first then on a mouse click, have another object appear. In PowerPoint, this is referred to as animation.

To add custom animation to an object on a slide:

  1. Right click the object and click Custom Animation. The Custom Animation pane will appear on the right.
  2. Click the down arrow on the Add Effect.
  3. Point to one of the options. From the submenu that appears, click the type of effect you want to add.
  4. Use the drop down arrow to choose how the effect will start. For example, if you want the object to appear when you click the mouse button, choose On Click.
  5. Use the drop down arrow under Speed, to select the speed at which the effect should occur.
  6. Click the Play button to see a preview of how the effect will look in the presentation.
