Duplicating Animations with Animation Painter
narration needs time before the next object appears or if you don’t want the presentation
to feel rushed. The speed of an animation can evoke a feeling. For example, a fast entrance
can convey a sense of urgency, while a slow-moving object can represent a delay or even a
feeling of yearning or reminiscence.
To learn more about setting slide timings, see “Planning and Rehearsing a Presentation” on
page 631.
In Slide Show view, animations follow either your mouse click or the animation timings that
you define. For animations that are set to advance on a mouse click, you can also use the
keyboard shortcuts you use to advance to the next slide. For example, pressing Enter
triggers the next animation or slide, whichever comes first.
INSIDE OUT Pull apart clip art, and then animate it
Each clip art object is a set of smaller objects pieced together to make up one graphic.
When you apply animation to a clip art illustration, the only option you have is to build
it all at once, as one object, unless you take it apart first. Using the Ungroup option on
the Format tab under Drawing Tools, you can break up an illustration into smaller
segments that you can apply separate animations to and control their appearance on your
slides with timings.
For example, when presenting to a group about teamwork, you might talk about how
each person is a necessary piece of the teamwork puzzle. A good illustration to use
in this case is one that shows several interlocking puzzle pieces. Once the illustration
of the puzzle is inserted, ungroup it to make each piece a separate object. Then, add
entrance effects to each puzzle piece and set their order and timing. In Slide Show
view, your puzzle comes together on the slide while you’re talking.
Duplicating Animations with Animation Painter
As you start working with animations, it becomes clear fairly quickly that a lot of
customization can be assigned to just one object. Once you animate one object precisely the way you
want it—with the right effects, options, and timing—re-creating those steps on a similar
object can be time-consuming. In PowerPoint 2010, you can use Animation Painter to copy
animations applied to one object to another. It works on animations the same way Format
Painter works on formatting.
