Chapter 16. Advanced PowerPoint > Multimedia Effects

16.2. Multimedia Effects

PowerPoint puts at your disposal a Spielbergian selection of special effects. In addition to the transitions you insert between slides, the program lets you animate particular elements in an image. It also enables you to add a soundtrack or voice narration to your slide show—features that are especially useful if you want to save the presentation as a stand-alone movie.

16.2.1. Adding Animations

One of the simplest ways to jazz up a PowerPoint presentation is to animate an element in a slide—be it text, an image, or even a movie. Animated objects whisk into view when triggered by an advance key, then dart away the next time you press the same key. You can control the animated object's path of motion and also choose whether its action is accompanied by a sound effect.
