Motion Paths
                 Motion Paths allow the
                 user to determine how
                an object moves from one
                 place to another on the
                         screen.
                    Motion Path Options include:
                    •   Diagonal Down Right
                    •   Diagonal Up Right
                    •   Down

                               In this
                          example, I will
                           insert a piece
                           of clip art into
                          the PowerPoint
                             in order to
                            demonstrate
                           Motion Paths.

                                        in the PowerPoint
                                      presentation. You can
                                   stretch the motion path and
                                    change it by clicking on it
 Don’t forget that you                  with the mouse if

                  You also have an option
                  to draw a custom motion
                  path for your object.

                  There are 4 choices
                  for drawing a
                  custom motion path:


                      •   Line
                      •   Curve
                      •   Freeform

 As before, the motion path
 that the object will take is
  shown. You can click on
the red arrow to stretch the
 length of the motion path.
Custom Animation:
Motion Paths—Custom Path, continued
                    When using the “Curve” option
                    in custom motion paths, every
                     time you click on the screen
                      when creating the path, the
                      a curve in the path will be
                    created. You are able to adjust
                      the curve with your mouse.

                     The “Freeform” option in the
                  “Custom Paths” menu allows you to
                  draw a custom motion path just like
                     you were drawing it by hand.
Custom Animation:
Motion Paths—Custom Path, continued
                    The “Scribble” option in the
                     “Custom Paths” menu is
                     basically the same as the
                        “Freeform” option.
Custom Animation:
Motion Paths—Custom Path, continued
                  Selecting the “More Motion Paths”
                   option from the “Motion Paths”
                   menu gives you a wide variety of
                 pre-determined motion paths that an
                         object would follow.
  Slide Transitions
 Here is a screenshot of the 2nd slide in this presentation. In this example,
 I would like to place a slide transition between the 1st and 2nd slide.




First, select the
 slide that you
 would like to
    place the
slide transition
  between by
clicking it with
   the mouse.
Slide Transitions, continued
Next, choose the slide
transition you’d like to      You can select

   that is provided…          the slide
                              transition takes
                              effect…



                            You can choose
                             a sound effect
                              to play along
                                with your
                           slide transition…

                           If you want the
                           slide transition
                               to occur
                           automatically,
                           you can do that
                                as well!
