Adding Transitions and Animations
It’s time to shake the bush (or rather
the presentation) and wake up your audience
by rolling a few objects across the screen during
the slide show. You can make each slide fade into
the background as the next one appears, or you
can make bullet points appear one at a time. You
can create simple transitions such as just replacing
one slide with another, or you can select from a
number of really fancy transitions.
2. Choose Transitions>Transition to This Slide,
and click the More button. A gallery of slide
transitions appears (see Figure 17-1).
Setting Slide Transitions
Transitions are wonderful in a presentation if used
in moderation. However, some presentations have
so many different transitions that they tend to
distract the audience with the Wow! factor instead of
the content. Some transitions are simple in that
one slide simply replaces another or dissolves into
the next slide, or you can use a transition called
Checkerboard, where the slide spins onto the
screen in small blocks. In fact, there are 35
transitions you can use.

Assigning a slide transition.
3. Select the transition you want. A selected
slide previews the transition effect.
Transition Indicator
Although you can use Normal view, transitions are
easiest to setup while in the Slide Sorter view.
When assigning transitions, you not only can assign
a transition visual effect, you can set a speed for the
transition to occur and you can assign a transition
sound. Follow these steps to assign slide transitions:
In the Slide Sorter view, slides with transitions
have a small star-shaped transition icon under
the slide. In Normal view, the transition icon
appears beside the slide in the Slide list pane.
Select the slides to which you want to apply
a transition effect.
