Animation Speed in PowerPoint 2007, 2003, and 2002 for Windows

Learn about animation speed in PowerPoint 2007, 2003, and 2002 for Windows.


Product/Version: PowerPoint 2007, 2003, and 2002 for Windows

OS: Windows XP and higher

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.

There are five speed presets available in PowerPoint:

  1. Very Slow: This animation speed plays for 5 seconds.
  2. Slow: This animation speed plays for 3 seconds.
  3. Medium: This animation speed plays for 2 seconds.
  4. Fast: This animation speed plays for 1 second.
  5. Very Fast: This animation speed plays for 0.5 second.
Note: If you want to change the timing or speed of any animation beyond these available presets, you do that by using the Advanced Timeline as explained in our Control Animation Timings using the Advanced Timeline in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows tutorial.

Follow these steps to change the animation speed for any animation:

  1. Select the object that has an animation applied to it. If you don't know how to add an animation to a slide object, refer to the Adding an Animation tutorial.
  2. Now make sure that the Custom Animation Task Pane is visible as shown in Figure 1. If this Task Pane is not visible, you won't be able to see or select any animations.

    For PowerPoint 2007 users, make sure that the shape is still selected, then activate the Animations tab of the Ribbon. Next, click the Custom Animation button to bring up a Task Pane of the same name that you can see in Figure 1. Remember, this is a toggle option: click once to show the Custom Animation Task Pane, and click again to hide it!

    Users of earlier PowerPoint versions (PowerPoint 2002 and 2003) can again make sure that the shape is selected. Then they should choose Slide Show | Custom Animation to access a similar Task Pane (see Figure 1).
