Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Emphasis Effects for Animations

July 9, 2012

Emphasis Effects for AnimationsEmphasis Effects are PowerPoint animations that determine how the slide object calls attention to itself while it is on-the-slide. Unlike Entrance and Exit animation effects that allow a slide object to enter or exit the slide area, slide objects with Emphasis animation effects are already within the slide area before they start animating, and continue remaining there even after they have finished animating. Typical Emphasis animation effects are Spin, in which an object spins 360 degrees (and more or less) on its own axis or Grow and Shrink, in which a slide object may increase or decrease its size. You can also apply Emphasis animation effects to text objects so that the fonts or the text colors change. In all, there are 50 or more Emphasis animation effects that PowerPoint provides -- however, make sure you use animation only if it adds value to your presentation and helps you explain something better to your audience.

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Remove Bookmarks from Video Clips

July 6, 2012

Remove Bookmarks from Video ClipsNow that you know how you can add Bookmarks to video clips in PowerPoint 2010, you may want to know how you can edit and remove those Bookmarks. At this point of time, let's state some facts -- we have bad news and good news. The bad news is that PowerPoint does not let you edit the inserted Bookmarks -- for instance, you cannot change the time of the Bookmark from 25 seconds to 28 seconds. You will have to remove the Bookmark you wanted to edit, and add a new Bookmark all over again! On the other hand, removing a Bookmark is easy -- and that is the good news!

Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Entrance Effects for Animations

July 5, 2012

Entrance Effects for Animations in PowerPoint 2011

Among the several types of animations that PowerPoint 2011 provides, Entrance Effects are probably the most popular. By applying Entrance Effects, you can make your hitherto invisible slide object appear on the slide almost magically -- make them appear in the time it takes to blink your eye, or get them to fly in from any direction. You can also have them grab the attention of your audience by doing a zoom in, or even better, just make it subtle with a simple fade in. Whatever entrance effect you choose, make sure you opt for something that is in sync with the topic of your presentation, and most importantly your audience.

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Add Bookmarks for Video Clips

July 4, 2012

Add Bookmarks for Video ClipsPowerPoint 2010 has made many improvements in the way you work with video clips -- one of the important, new abilities relates to you being able to play your video from a certain point within the video clip. This feature is called a Bookmark because it is similar to the conventional bookmarks you place within the pages of a book you are reading. Just like how you can easily go to that particular page with the help of a bookmark, the Bookmark you add to a video clip becomes an indicator of the position you want to go to. You can thus quickly access that position within the the video clip without having to manually scrub within the Player Controls bar. In addition, you can also combine Bookmarks with Trigger animations -- so as to trigger a click to play a video clip precisely from the Bookmark you added.

Indezine News: Disproportionate PowerPoint

July 3, 2012

Geetesh BajajPowerPoint gets too much attention! Everyone who delivers PowerPoint presentations does more than just that -- they work on Excel and other applications all the time, research data, create reports, interact with their boss, clients, subordinates, and others -- and delivering a presentation is just a small part of their everyday work. Yet, how everyone else within and outside an organization looks at them is mostly perceived through their PowerPoints, and the skills they use to deliver these PowerPoint presentations. We all agree that this importance that PowerPoint gets is entirely disproportionate to its abilities! Yet, the fact is that this is so true, and matters will remain the same way for a long, long, time to come.

Fortunately, the Reset Design option is just what you need at this point of time! In this tutorial, you will learn how you can restore a video clip to its default appearance, and get rid of any customizations you may have made.

Show Emotion: by Claudyne Wilder

June 29, 2012

Claudyne WilderWhy do presenters in business believe that they need to be monotone, without affect or emphasis? What is wrong with showing a little emotion when you are speaking? "No, no!" too many presenters respond. "Although I don't want to be monotone, I just can't get too emotional." Being emotional does not mean becoming a drama queen (or king). It means matching your face, body, phrasing, and gestures to your words. For example, when you are telling your audience about the failure of a research project, you certainly shouldn't be walking around smiling, speaking in a loud and enthusiastic voice.

Adding Animation to Slide Objects in PowerPoint 2011

We have already explored what animation is, and what are the guidelines to be considered before you add an animation to a slide object within PowerPoint. You can animate any slide object that is selectable on your slide -- these slide objects include pictures, shapes, text, bulleted lists, SmartArt graphics, charts, etc. Once the slide object is animated, you can tweak the animation to control how the slide object appears, moves, and disappears in the Slide Show view. Before you tweak, you must first add an animation to the slide object.

Cliff Atkinson, Beyond Bullet Points, and Legal Presentations

June 28, 2012

Cliff AtkinsonCliff Atkinson sent me a copy of the third edition of his Beyond Bullet Points book, and when you open the book, you'll find that the obvious change in this new edition is a whole new chapter right at the beginning which talks about how a multi-million dollar court case was won by using the principles discussed in Cliff's Beyond Bullet Points book. To paraphrase the entire case in a few small paragraphs can be a challenge -- let me try – and of course, you can get a copy of Cliff's book to read this entire incident in full detail.
