The Curtains transition effect was introduced in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. If you play slides using the Curtains transition effect in previous versions such as PowerPoint 2010, this effect may be substituted with the Fade transition effect.

Look at this YouTube embedded movie to see how this Curtains transition effect looks like.

Here are some guidelines for using the Curtains transition effect:

  • If you use your Curtains transition effect on the first slide, the color of the curtain will be black.
  • If you use your Curtains transition effect on any slide that’s not the first slide, then the previous slide will be the “curtain” used.
  • So, what happens if you use the Curtains transition effect on slide 4, and you do not play the slides in sequence? For example, you start playing your slides from slide 4 onwards? Then the color of the curtain will be black.
  • If you must use a different color such as red for the curtains, you will have to create an extra slide before the transition slide. Moreover, fill that extra slide with a rectangle that covers the entire slide area. Fill the rectangle with a solid red fill. Add a 00:00.00 Advance Slide After value to this red slide.

Close the Curtain Transition?

Unfortunately, the curtains only open, and there is no way to close the curtain. Many PowerPoint users do wish there was an option to reverse the Curtains transition so that they can add a Curtains Close transition on their last slide.
