Chapter 11. Animating Slide Show Objects > Creating Custom Animations

Creating Custom Animations

Using slide transitions and animation schemes are good ways to begin making a slide show more alive. But if you really want to make a presentation move to your drumbeat, you need to learn how to use custom animations. In fact, when you become familiar with animating individual slide elements, you’ll find yourself using animation schemes less often, so that you don’t end up with animations you’re not interested in using.

Animating Bullets

Typically, you don’t want to get too carried away with bullet animations. You simply want to get the information onscreen, in the proper order, and with the proper timing. You might want to add a sound effect, or make the slides appear with a special transition, but you certainly don’t want to make each bullet come on the scene differently. Nevertheless, you can learn about the elements of custom animations by working first with bullets.
