Apply 3D Rotation effect to shapes in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows.


Author:

Product/Version: PowerPoint 2007 for Windows

OS: Windows XP / Vista






We have already covered all effects available in PowerPoint 2007 in this tutorial series except the 3-D, and we remedy that now with this tutorial where we show you how you can add a 3-D Rotation effect to a selected shape in PowerPoint 2007 (or higher version).

To see a sample presentation containing 3D Rotation effects in PowerPoint 2007, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Note: Any shape that you apply a 3-D Rotation effect to needs to have some 3-D depth to show rotation, you can add depth using details provided on the 3-D Options page.

Follow these steps to apply a 3-D Rotation effect to a shape:

  1. Select the shape you want to apply the effect to. Selecting a shape activates the Drawing Tools Format tab in the Ribbon, activate this tab and locate the Shape Effects button that you can see in Figure 1 (highlighted in red).

  2. This brings up the Shape Effects drop-down gallery as you can see in Figure 2. From the Shape Effects drop-down gallery, choose 3-D Rotation.

  3. This opens the 3-D Rotation sub-gallery (refer to Figure 2) that provides the following options:

    A. No Rotation:

    Use this option to remove 3-D Rotation from a selected shape. You can use this option only if the shape has 3-D Rotation applied.

    B. Parallel:

    10 variants that rotate the shape in different angles.

    C. Perspective:

    11 variants that rotates the shape, and alter the angle (perspective) from where you view the shape, so that farther edges appears smaller than nearer edges.

    D. Oblique:

    4 variants that apply a very subtle rotation, almost as if a 2-D object is in a semi-3-D space.

    E. 3-D Rotation Options:

    Brings up a 3-D Rotation tab where you can customize 3-D Rotation Options further.
  4. Mouse over any of the effects within the 3-D Rotation gallery to see a Live Preview of the effect. Click on an effect to apply it to the selected shape.
  5. Remember to save your presentation often.
