Going further with animations

Control animation timing, animation speed, and animation duration in PowerPoint 2010. Add animation delays, change the animation order, and even add a sound to an animation. Plus, make custom animations using the Animation Pane (previously known as the Custom Animation Pane).

About this course

This course includes four videos:

  • Introduction (1:00)
  • Work on the timing (3:31)
  • Change the order and effect options (3:37)
  • Create animations with motion paths (3:49)

There is also a Quick Reference Card you can print at the end of the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Change the timing for an animation using “On click,” “With previous,” or “After previous.”
  • Change the speed for an animation: speed it up, slow it down, and even delay it.
  • Change the order of the animation using the Animation Pane (previously known as the Custom Animation Pane).
  • Add a sound to an animation.
  • Add a custom animation using a motion path.
  • Use the Selection Pane to more easily select objects in a complex animation.
