Change or remove an animation effect

What do you want to do?


To apply an animation to text, a picture, or other object in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, see:

Change the timing for an animation effect

A variety of timing options help to ensure that your animation flows smoothly and looks professional. You can set options for start times (including delays), speed, duration, looping (repeating), and automatic rewind.

Set options for start times

  1. Click the text or object that contains the animation for which you want to specify start options.
  2. On the Animations tab, in the Animations group, click Custom Animation.
  3. In the Custom Animation list, right-click the animation effect, and then do one of the following:
    • To start the animation effect when you click the slide, select Start On Click.
    • To start the animation effect at the same time as the previous effect in the list (that is, one click executes two animation effects), select Start With Previous.
    • To start the animation effect immediately after the previous effect in the list finishes playing (that is, you do not have to click again to make the next animation effect start), select Start After Previous.

If this is the first animation effect on the slide, it will be marked as "0" and will start as soon as the slide appears in the presentation

  • To replay or repeat the custom animations that you apply to a given object, select Timing, and then on the Timing tab, select an option in the Repeat list.

Set a delay or other timing option

  1. Click the text or object that contains the animation effect that you want to set a delay or other timing option for.
  2. On the Animations tab, in the Animations group, click Custom Animation.
  3. In the Custom Animation list, right-click the animation effect, select Timing, click the Timing tab, and then do one or more of the following:
    • To create a delay between the end of one animation effect and the start of a new animation effect, enter a number in the Delay box.
    • To set the speed with which the new animation effect plays, select an option in the Speed list.
    • To repeat an animation effect, select an option in the Repeat list.
    • To automatically return an animation effect to its original look and location after it plays, select the Rewind when done playing check box. For example, after the fly out exit effect plays, the item reappears on the slide in its original location.
