When you add animation to any slide object, and set the animation event for it to occur, the next thing to do is set the speed of the animation. In this tutorial, I explore speed presets in PowerPoint that determine how long an animation takes to complete.

In this tutorial series, I showed you how you can play with all the effects available in PowerPoint 2007. This is the last tutorial in this series, and builds upon the previous tutorial that showed you how to apply 3D Rotation to a shape in PowerPoint 2007 (or higher version).
We have already covered all effects available in PowerPoint 2007 in this tutorial series except the 3-D, and we remedy that now with this tutorial where I show you how you can add a 3-D Rotation effect to a selected shape in PowerPoint 2007 (or higher version).
3-D Options seems like something that should work with the 3-D Rotation effect in PowerPoint 2007, yet it also works with other effects such as Bevel and Presets. In simple terms, 3-D Options let you format the bevel style of a shape with many more options that are available in the conventional Bevel gallery. You can customize options such as contour, contour color, depth, depth color, and materials. This detailed tutorial explains every option within the 3-D Options gamut.
We have already covered most of the effects available in PowerPoint 2007 in this tutorial series -- and now I show you how you can add a Bevel effect to a selected shape in PowerPoint 2007 (or higher version).
We have already explored a few of the effects that PowerPoint 2007 allows to be used on shapes -- and that's the reason they are called Shape Effects. Soft Edges are one of these effects, and we'll look at what you can do with soft edges, which adds an eaten-up, feathered edge to a selected shape. Soft edges work best with larger shapes, especially if you use some of the larger soft edge variations available. PowerPoint provides some ready-to-use soft edges, but there is no option to format soft edges beyond these readymade offerings. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to apply soft edge to a shape.
