On this site, read a review of Motion Path Tools, a free PowerPoint add-in from Shyam Pillai.

Julie Terberg discusses Motion Paths: "What if you’re looking to put a little spin on things, literally? To make visuals really move you need to understand PowerPoint’s motion paths effects and how to combine them with other effects for dynamic results."

Tips from the Pros

Glenna ShawIf If you animate shapes with multiple sequential motion paths, you'll find that its' not too easy to line them up and "connect" them end to end. If you turn off Snap to Grid and turn on Snap objects to other objects options, then the ends of the motion paths snap right together when you move them near each other. And if the start point accidentally gets moved off center of your object, all you have to do is move it a little bit and it'll go right back to the center of the object. This works for both locked and unlocked motion paths.

Julie TerbergMotion paths will snap to intersecting guides, too. This works great for accurate positioning

GeeteshPowerPoint for Mac users cannot add motion path animations since this feature is not available on PowerPoint for Mac. However, users of PowerPoint 2004 and 2008 for Mac can still view the motion path animations when they play presentations created in PowerPoint 2002, 2003, and 2007 for Windows.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
