Applying 3-D Rotation
Contour. This allows you to specify the color and size of outlines that mark the
edges of the 3-D effect.
Surface. This allows you to specify the material and lighting that the object should
simulate.
Figure 9.44 shows several types of 3-D rotation and formatting. Beveling is also a type of
3-D formatting, and so some examples of it are included.

Although you can use 3-D rotation and 3-D formatting together to create the effects shown
in Figure 9.44, they are actually controlled separately in PowerPoint. Therefore, creating
these effects is a two-step process.
Applying 3-D Rotation
To apply 3-D rotation, either you can use one of the 3-D Rotation presets or you can enter
rotation amounts directly into the Format Shape (or Format Picture) task pane. To use a
preset, click the Shape Effects (or Picture Effects) button on the Format tab, select 3-D
Rotation, and click a preset. The Oblique presets at the bottom of the menu are the most
similar to the older 3-D effects from PowerPoint 2003 and earlier.
