Motion Path and Animated Background
Date Created: February 25th 2012

We set a section of Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers as the slide background – and then we added several shapes with a slide background fill to create this slide. You can change the background to any other picture, and these animations will still work! Once animated, the background section that shows through in the shapes continues to move within the slide area creating a very different animation effect. Simultaneously, the rest of the background fades out so that the area within the shapes is highlighted. The background picture was sourced from the Wikipedia site. To see how this animation plays, download the presentation (link above) or scroll down this page to see a YouTube movie of the animation.
These slides were created in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows and should work well in both PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 for Windows – and in PowerPoint 2008 and 2011 on the Mac. You can download and use this slide for your own presentations -- but please do let our credit link remain so that others can also know where the slides originated from.
