OS: Windows 7 and 8







Dynamic Content transitions were first introduced in PowerPoint 2010 (these also work in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac). When these transitions are applied to your slide, the actual transition occurs on all areas of the slide except the backgrounds. This makes your content move independently on and off the screen. PowerPoint 2013 provides seven different transition effects within the Dynamic Content category -- do experiment with these options for direction and timing to create some great looking presentations.

Note: A sample presentation with all dynamic transitions can be seen later on this page.

Open any presentation that already has a few slides of content -- it is helpful (but not necessary) if your slides have a background that's not just a solid color, as in the example slides you see later in Figure 1 on this page. Thereafter, follow these steps to add Dynamic Content transitions to one or more slides in PowerPoint 2013:

  1. Navigate to the slide to which you want to add a dynamic transition. If you want to add a similar transition effect to more than one slide, access PowerPoint's Slide Sorter view and select the slides you need, as shown in Figure 1.

  2. Access the Transitions tab of the Ribbon, and click the down arrow (highlighted in red within Figure 2 below) within the Transition to This Slide group.

  3. This will bring up a drop-down gallery as shown in Figure 3 below. Locate the Dynamic Content category (highlighted in red within Figure 3) and select any transition effect within this category.

  4. If you want to add the same transition effect to all slides in your presentation (as opposed to just the active or selected slides), then click the Apply To All button located within the Transitions tab (highlighted in red within Figure 4, below).
