Lab 2: Adding Sound and Movement to a Presentation
Adding Sound and Movement
to a Presentation
IN THIS LAB
Applying custom animations
Assigning transitions to slides
Adding a musical soundtrack from a i le
In an ideal world, you’d have great video equipment to create live-action movies for your audi-
ences, but that’s not always the case. Often you’re stuck with a bunch of static images, and you
need to make them as lively and animated as possible within the conﬁ nes of PowerPoint.
In this lab, you animate a presentation for Spice Meadow Shelties, a small kennel that breeds pure-
bred Shetland sheepdogs. The graphics and text are already in place. Your job is to apply animations
and transitions to make the presentation more interesting and appealing.
Lab 2A: Fading Text and Graphics In and Out
In this lab session, you add some text to a slide. You then animate it and the photos so that the
ﬁ rst set fades in and out and then the other set fades in. Even though the text and pictures seem
to overlap in Normal view, they appear at different times in Slide Show view so there is no conﬂ ict.
