4.3 Set timing for transitions and animations
When you are incorporating slide transitions and animations into a presentation, two of
the options you have for each of these are triggers and timing.
The trigger is the event that causes a transition or animation to begin. The default
trigger for a transition or animation is On Mouse Click, meaning that the effect occurs when
the presenter gives the signal to advance. When a slide includes animations that are set
to start On Mouse Click, the signal to advance the slide instead runs the animation.
The timing of transitions and animations contributes to the tone of a presentation,
particularly when the presentation is running automatically. All timing options can be
entered in seconds but are expressed in the format hh:mm:ss .
