Adding Visual Transitions
Adding Visual Transitions
Transitions define how slides or part of a slide (text or graphics) appear
during your presentation. By default, slides appear one at a time with all the
text and graphics displayed at once, which can get monotonous.
To spice up your presentation, PowerPoint offers two types of transitions:
Slide transitions
Text and picture transitions
Use transitions sparingly. Transitions may be visually interesting, but too
many transitions can be distracting.
Adding slide transitions
Slide transitions can make a slide appear to melt or break into multiple
pieces that slip away, revealing the next slide underneath.
When creating a transition, you need to define the following:
The actual visual appearance of the transition
The speed of the transition (Slow, Medium, or Fast)
Any sound effects you want to play during the transition (these can get
really annoying, so use them sparingly)
When to display the transition (after a certain time period or when you
click the mouse)
To create a slide transition, follow these steps:
1. Click a slide (in the Slide or Outline view pane).
Any transition you choose will end by displaying the slide you choose in
this step.
2. Click the Transitions tab.
PowerPoint displays the different animation (transition) tools, as shown
in Figure 13-7.
