Objective 4: Apply transitions and animations
Apply transitions
and animations
The skills tested in this section of the Microsoft Office Specialist exam for Microsoft
PowerPoint 2013 relate to applying transitions and animations. Specifically, the following
objectives are associated with this set of skills:
Apply transitioning between slides
Animate slide content
Set timing for transitions and animations
When you deliver a presentation, you can move from slide to slide by clicking the mouse
button, or you can have PowerPoint replace one slide with the next at predetermined
intervals. One of the ways in which you can keep an audience’s attention is by applying an
interesting transition effect when moving between slides. Another way to keep the
audience’s interest, and often to communicate additional information, is to animate text and
objects on slides. By incorporating dynamic effects, you can emphasize key points, control
the focus of the discussion, and entertain in ways that will make your message memorable.
This chapter guides you in studying ways of configuring slide transitions and animating
slide content.
Practice Files To complete the practice tasks in this chapter, you need the practice
files contained in the MOSPowerPoint2013\Objective4 practice file folder. For more
information, see “Download the practice files” in this topic’s Introduction.
4.1 Apply transitioning between slides
Transitions control the way slides move into and out of view during a slide show. They
include simple effects such as sliding in, more complex effects such as dissolving in from
the outer edges or the center, and very fancy effects such as scattering the slide content
like glitter.
