Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Slide Transition Timings

Aug 20, 2014

Slide Transition Timings  in PowerPoint 2013

In PowerPoint 2013 transition duration and transition timings are not the same. Transition time is the actual time that the slide stays active during a slide show before moving on to the next slide. Transition duration is the amount of time it takes to move between slides. Normally, during slide show, you can advance to the next slide by mouse click (or pressing the Enter key on your keyboard). Using transition timings on the other hand, you can set your slides to advance on their own instead, and display each slide for a specific amount of time that you decide.

Learn how to set transition timings for the slides in PowerPoint 2013.

Insert Video using Adobe Presenter

Similar to inserting a SWF file, you can insert a video file into PowerPoint using Adobe Presenter. Now do remember that this Insert Video option is only for content that is going to be output by Adobe Presenter, and not for conventional PowerPoint slides. Also unlike SWF files, you cannot play videos inserted using Adobe Presenter typically using PowerPoint's Slide Show view. To preview such videos, you must use Adobe Presenter's Preview options.

Aug 19, 2014

Slide Transition Duration in PowerPoint 2013

Every transition you add to a slide within PowerPoint 2013 has a fixed, default duration. Some transitions such as Cut happen sooner than you can imagine (just 0.10 seconds). Some others like Reveal can take 3.40 seconds to be done with. But you really do not need to be happy with the default transition duration as you can make them to happen for as long, or as soon as you want. Before we show you how you can change the duration, do remember that transition duration and transition time are not the same.

Learn how to change the slide transition duration in PowerPoint 2013.
