Choreograph effects to make a multimedia presentation

Choreograph effects to make a multimedia presentation


You can create visually interesting presentations that
help you tell a story when you choreograph effects.
Choreographed effects can have different start or
stop times and can include entrance effects, exit
effects, motion paths, or even audio or video.

For example, if you want to illustrate a timeline of
events, you could bring in a graphic, discuss it, and
then bring in another graphic as the one you just
discussed exits the screen. When you want to discuss
complex topics, choreographing effects can help you
break them down into pieces that are easier to
understand.

After each effect is created, it is listed in the Custom
Animation task pane, where you can determine
whether the effect begins with a mouse click or whether
it begins after the previous effect is completed. This
is very useful when you want to illustrate how pieces
fit together by displaying one piece, then another
immediately thereafter. You can choose the speed at
which effects occur.

Did You Know?

If you have more than one element that you would
like to enter or exit at the same time, you can group
the elements first and then apply the effect. Ctrl+click
to select multiple items such as text or graphics, and
then follow the steps above.

Try This!

You can orchestrate effects so that they occur at the
same time. Follow the steps above, but in Step 11,
click With Previous instead of After Previous.

More Options!

You can change the order in which exit effects take
place. After following the steps above, click the effect
to reorder and then click the Re-Order arrows to
move the effect to its desired position.
