Triggering an Animation Effect
To use this feature, select an object with an animation assigned, click Animation Painter on
the Animations tab, and then click the object you want to copy the animation to.
Animation Painter works well when you’re developing complex animations or with objects
that contain several animation properties.
INSIDE OUT Copy animation settings to multiple objects
When you click Animation Painter, it stays active until you click an object. If you need
to copy animation from one object to multiple objects, you can keep Animation Painter
active until you finish copying.
After you select the object that holds the animation settings you want to copy,
doubleclick the Animation Painter option. Now you can apply the animation settings to as
many objects as you need to. When you finish, just click Animation Painter once or
press Esc.
Triggering an Animation Effect
For the most part, animations start based on other animations. One follows another, two
start at the same time, or they wait for a cue from the presenter. Another way to get an
animation effect to start is through a trigger. Separate from the Start option, triggers can
be used to display other, hidden objects when the presenter clicks a specific object or
reaches a bookmark in a video.
Using a trigger, you can hide a video when it’s not playing. You can then set the video’s
animation trigger to play when another object (such as a picture or a text box) on the slide is
clicked. As an example, our new hire presentation has a video related to security. To set the
video to play when the security image is clicked, we set the security image as the video’s
trigger. To accomplish this, insert and select the video. On the Animations tab, click Trigger,
On Click Of, Security Image, as shown in Figure 19-8.
