Exit Animations

Exit Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Exit animation effects determine how animated slide objects leave the Slide Area. For example, a slide object can fade or fly out the screen area, or use any of the many other Exit animation effects available within PowerPoint. Typical Exit Effect animations include Disappear, in which an object just vanishes or Float Down, in which slide object mimics the setting sun. You can also apply Exit Effects to text objects so that words Spiral out of the slide. There are plenty of Exit Effect animations that PowerPoint provides. However, make sure you use animation sparingly to emphasize rather than to distract.


Reorder Animations

Reorder Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

By default, animation effects are numbered in the order in which they are applied to slide objects. You might need to reorder your animations mainly because you may have more than one animated object on a slide, and re-sequencing of animations as they happen in relation to each other may provide a better result. Or you may just want some animations to happen before other animations. Also, there are logical reasons to reorder animations since typically entrance and exit animations need to be the first and last animations for any slide object. PowerPoint's Reorder option for animations lets you play with their sequencing.


Animation Events

Animation Events in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you add an animation to any slide object, you can play the animation in Slide Show view by clicking your mouse cursor or pressing the spacebar on your keyboard. Another option is to use a button on a presentation remote. Each of these options advances one animation at a time, or may even take you to the subsequent slide. However, if you add that many animations to any slide, you probably want your animations to be automatically sequenced and play one after the other without a click, and that's exactly where PowerPoint's animation events can help.


Animation Speed

Animation Speed in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

After you add an animation to a selected slide object, you typically set an animation event. Another animation property you can set thereafter is the speed of the animation. Every animation you add within PowerPoint 2016 has a fixed, default speed. This speed essentially is a duration shown in seconds or part thereof and differs from animation to animation. For example, the default duration of a Fade animation is half a second (00.50) whereas for the Wheel animation, it is two seconds (02.00).
