Concept Slides: Zoom in Zoom Out Credits

August 06, 2010

Zoom in Zoom Out Credits    Zoom in Zoom Out Credits

Unlike the Credits animation sequence that's built in within PowerPoint, this is different because you get a zoom in, fade, and movement effects all at once -- and then the text descends and disappears! Keep adding any number of text boxes as you want and they will seamlessly animate one after the other.

If you'd rather not do all this on your own, you can download the free sample PowerPoint presentation here and use it as one of the slides in your own presentation.

Concept Slides: Pictures on Stage

August 04, 2010

Pictures on Stage    Pictures on Stage

Much like the Triangles on Stage presentation but with one difference -- this animated slide uses actual pictures rather than shapes filled with pictures. You can start by inserting just one picture on your slide, and then perfect the animation. When you are happy with the results of the animation, press Ctrl+D to duplicate the picture and the animation is also duplicated -- now just change the picture. Repeat as many times as you want to add more pictures.

If you'd rather not do all this on your own, you can download the free sample PowerPoint presentation here and use it as one of the slides in your own presentation.

Concept Slides: Clock Animation in PowerPoint

August 02, 2010

This clock was created when I played around to discover a way to animate the clock hands in PowerPoint. Initially, the animations played differently in PowerPoint 2003, 2007, and 2010 mainly because how PowerPoint 2010 plays animations but with a few tweaks, it all worked well. Feel free to download and use these clocks, and I have included both a 1 minute and 5 minute timer. Each slide uses colors and effects of the Theme on which it is based so as soon as these slides are inserted in your Theme aware presentations, they will use the look of all the other slides in your presentation. Also explore the other extra slides in the presentation that show how the animation sequence progressed.

Concept Slides: Animated Boxes

July 17, 2010

This animated box is a square with a small glowing sphere that animates all four sides of the box separately uisng four each of wipe and motion path animations. Works great in PowerPoint 2007, but in PowerPoint 2010 the same animations happen a little faster! You can format the sphere and the lines as you want and the animations will still work -- download and use it in your presentations. For a nice effect, add a text box right in the middle of the square, and animate it to come after the square has already been animated.
