Microsoft 365 Day 36: Using Morph Transitions in PowerPoint

#Microsoft365 – If you have Office 365, you might have noticed a new Transition style = Morph. In this post I’ll show you how to use Morph to apply some really cool animations, without building all those actual animation steps.

PowerPoint has a ‘new’ transition type, Morph, that can help you make smooth animations, transitions, and object movements across the slides in your presentation. You can apply the Morph transition to slides to create the appearance of movement in a wide range of objects, such as text, shapes, pictures, SmartArt, WordArt, and charts.

I’ve used animations quite a bit – but it can be very tricky to build and streamline all those changes. Morph really is a great way to create smooth transitions with same objects. In the video below you’ll see the basics (I didn’t add sound as I have 1,000,000 birds chirping in my garden and I thought I’d save you the wildlife recap 🙂 ):

  • I started with my “end state” slide, then duplicated it to have two more copies.
  • I then changed the first and second slide objects to create the “from and to – state” animations.
  • On slide 2 and slide 3 I added Morph Transitions. Voila!!!

Note: I created this Video using PowerPoint Office Mix.

Purpose of this blog challenge:

I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.

Microsoft 365 Day 37: Using the Effect Options in PowerPoint Morph Transitions

#Microsoft365 – Any day I can write about PowerPoint is a good day. Today I’ll share the effect options to use with Morph Transitions. Sure to make a huge difference. morph3

Using Morph to Transform your PowerPoint:

I have explained the exact how to’s in a previous blog, here I’ll show you how to make it even better!

In the short video clip below, you’ll see that I have two slides. There is text on both, and I’ve added shapes to both. Morph will transition these text and shapes into the next slide.

The Morph transition is selected on the second slide, and on the right you’ll see Effect Options. There are 3 types:

  1. Objects
  2. Words
  3. Characters

2017-01-26-21_32_45-example-powerpoint

Objects will only Morph the objects (shapes), Words will Morph full exact words and Characters will Morph Shapes and characters of the text. The transition is not as smooth as it will appear on your side (I blame the 30 PowerPoint files and 200 Browser windows I have open at the same time):

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.
Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.

Day 231 – Transitions between PowerPoint Slides

ATOI365D

#Office365Challenge Yup – still on PowerPoint (CAUSE IT’S SO AWESOME!!!). Let’s take a look at transitions between slides.

Day: 231 of 365, 134 left
Tools: Office 365 / PowerPoint
Description: Transitions between PowerPoint Slides

Slide transitions are great for “filling the gaps” between one slide to the next. As with everything in life – too much is overdoing it. I actually use transitions to help me pace myself, and give me a chance to breath. Add ADHD to public speaking and you have a disaster. By slide 3 I’m talking so fast I’m on a different frequency – and all because I get so excited / passionate about “what I do”. So transitions really do help with “slowing me down” a bit.

Slide transitions are the animation-like effects that occur when you move from one slide to the next during a presentation. You can control the speed, add sound, and customize the properties of transition effects. – Microsoft

To add transitions is really easy, the difficult part is not overdoing it or making your presentation look “tacky”. I use max 2 – 3 different types of transitions in a 30+ slide deck.

In the short video (no sound) I’ll show you how I add transitions on some slides and what it looks like in Presentation mode. I’ve added some crazy ones to illustrate. Go play with the other types, and find something that works for you:

To add a transition, click on the slide it will transition to, then click on the Transitions Tab. Here you will see many options (choose wisely). Select the transition you would like to use. Go to presentation view to see the result:

Cannot wait to use Morph for some more creative PowerPointing!
