Animations I: Preset and custom animation

Click the Play button to see an animated example of text interspersed with pictures. After each bulleted item, a picture appears using an entrance effect and then disappears using an exit effect when the next bulleted item appears.

While a preset animation scheme is an efficient way to put effects in a slide show, it's certainly not the way you have to begin. You can also do all of your animating the "custom" way.

This lesson further explores custom animation, showing you how to animate text by word or letter, hide text after its effect plays, dim text with another color, and use a sound enhancement. Finally, see how to use entrance and exit effects with pictures in a bulleted list.
