Customizing Your Animation
Adding an effect
To animate an object on a slide, follow these steps:
1. In Normal View, call up the slide that contains the object you want to
animate and then click the object to select it.
For example, to animate text paragraphs, select the text placeholder
that holds the text.
2. If you haven’t already done so, click the Animation Pane button.
This step opens the Custom Animation task pane.
3. Click the Animations tab on the Ribbon.
4. Click the Add Animation button and then select the effect you want to
create from the menu that appears.
Clicking the Add Animation button menu reveals a menu that lists the
four types of effects: Entrance, Emphasis, Exit, and Motion Path. In this
example, I chose the Bounce entrance effect.
The entrance effect you selected is added to the Animation pane, as
shown in Figure 9-6.
