Design motion paths (2:27)
Let’s apply a motion path. You use a motion path to move something in a very specific way on a slide. You can also combine motion paths with other effects.

Work with a motion path (2:55)
In this movie, we’ll focus on creating the motion path for an animation effect, so you can see how to work with a path.

Combine a path with other effects (4:52)
A motion path can be especially powerful when you combine it with another animation effect. In this movie, we'll apply a Spin and other effects to our wheel animation to complete the rolling effect we want to achieve.

Create a sequence with line paths (6:53)
Many motion path animation sequences are fairly simple to create, but it may not look that way. We'll re-create a sequence, to show you more techniques for using motion paths and animation.

Apply paths to layered pictures (5:22)
How do you apply motion paths or other effects to the items you can’t see when you first view a slide? We'll take a look at some tools that help.
