5 Tips for Creating Animations & Transitions in PowerPoint

Adding animation to your PowerPoint slideshows can greatly enhance the experience you offer through your presentation. If you’re new to PowerPoint, follow these tips to get started with animations.

1. Transition vs Object Animations

One of the first things you need to be aware of when using PowerPoint animations is the difference between transition animations and object animations.

On PowerPoint, you can animate each object you add to your slides. While this can be useful when presenting key points in a presentation, you should try to keep object animations to a minimum.

You can also add transition animations to your slides. These animations help create smoother transitions between slides.

2. Time It Perfectly

Each and every animation you add in PowerPoint can be customized to your preference by setting times for the duration of the animation as well as adding delays.

It’s up to you to experiment with different settings to find the right time and delays for your animations. Try to keep animations short and sweet.

3. Stack Multiple Animations

Another useful feature of PowerPoint animations is the ability to stack multiple animations for objects. For example, you can add both entrance and exit animations for each object on your slide by stacking different animation effects.

Stacking animations can drastically increase the duration of your slideshow presentations so use this feature only when necessary.

4. Automatic vs Controlled Animations

Controlled animations offer a great advantage when you’re delivering specific types of presentations like product reveals and feature showcases. For example, if you want to talk about key points in your speech, you can use controlled animations to reveal those points one at a time upon your mouse click or using a remote.

You can also set your animations to play automatically so they flow through your slide presentations without having to click for each slide to start.

5. Keep It Simple

Overall, you should try to keep animations to a minimum and avoid using the more flashy animations in your presentations. For example, it’s perfectly fine to add a fade-in transition effect to your slides. However, adding flashing and bouncing animations may hurt your reputation as a professional.

Stick to the simple and minimal animations to make your presentations more entertaining and easier to look at.

Better yet, you can access some of Visme's creative slide transitions. Every single animated presentation template in Visme includes an attractive staggered transition effect from slide to slide. 

More than 900 slides in our template library are designed especially for your presentations to look impressive and unforgettable. Plus, our design panel is loaded with free animations for PowerPoint slides.

When you import a PowerPoint template to Visme, you can easily add slide transitions to one slide at a time or all at once. However, it's best to stick with a single transition from slide to slide so that your presentation doesn't look too cluttered.

Alternatively, if you are looking for a quick solution, instead of creating your slides separately, you can use Visme's AI presentation maker to create your presentations in minimal time.

Input a text prompt explaining your requirements, choose a style and Visme's AI will craft text, images and icons to create tailored presentations. You can then customize the slides in Visme's presentation maker and include your interactive and animated features to make your presentations more engaging.

Working on the presentation with your team? The collaboration tool is a handy resource. You can invite team members and give them regulated or unlimited access to leave comments, reply to comments and work on the design in real time. The workflow feature makes project management easier. You can assign specific slides or the entire project, set deadlines, review and approve projects—all in one workspace.

How to Customize Animated PowerPoint Templates

We've talked a lot about PPT animation templates in this article. As you can see, they're effective ways to save time and use the best animations that aren't native to PowerPoint.

This section will show you that PowerPoint animation templates are the starting point. They're totally customizable! 

Herov1 Animated PowerPoint template

We're going to customize three slides in three steps each. Let's get started:

1. The Testimonial Slide

Slide 34 testimonial

Slide 34 is a great way to show user feedback. Testimonials share potential clients that what you offer is proven to help others. This one's clean and it's easy to customize. Here's how:

  • Add an image . Click on the image placeholder, then browse to a replacement.
  • Update text . Include a user's testimonial to really drive the user experience to a potential customer.
  • Slim down the text . We always coach presenters to reduce the total amount of text on a slide. 

What they Say finished

2. The Animated Chart

Animated chart PPTX

We're always advising our readers to use charts and graphs to show data. And as we shared in a tip earlier, animation takes a chart to the next level. Here's how to customize slide 14, an animated chart.

  • Update data . Right-click the existing chart and choose  Edit Data  to open an embedded Excel window. Then, type over the placeholder data and your chart will update in realtime.
  • Add your image . The default slide is designed to show a candidate's skill set. But there's no reason that you couldn't show other data in action. Either way, click on the image placeholder and browse to a replacement.
  • Update text . Each text box is waiting for your copy. All you've got to do is type inside and fill in your details. Get creative with how to show your data.

Finished slide 14

3. The Three Box Portfolio

Threebox Portfolio

A portfolio is always a chance to put your best work front-and-center. Slide 19 is a great way to show your three favorite works with enough animation. Let's customize it:

  • Update portfolio pieces . Click on the image placeholders and browse to the images or screenshots to add your favorite portfolio items.
  • Update the branding . Click on any of the shapes on this slide, then choose the  Format > Shape Fill  dropdown ribbon option to choose a color that matches your preference.
  • Update the text . As always, it only takes a few seconds to type over the text placeholders to add your specifics. Give your portfolio items a brief, one-line description.

5 Quick PowerPoint Animation Tips for 2023

Here's what you've already learned:

  • There are free animated PPT templates out there. Sometimes, they're "good enough" for your presentation.
  • Premium PowerPoint animation templates give you smoother animations.

No matter what type of template you choose, it helps to have tips to work with animated PowerPoint templates. For these tips, we'll be working with the premium template,  HEXA - PowerPoint Presentation Template .

Here are five of our top tips for presenters of all skill levels:

1. Adjust PowerPoint Animation Sequencing

Arguably the most important part is sequencing your animations correctly. After all, you don't want to show the punchline of a joke first, right?

To adjust your animation sequencing, make sure you're on the  Animations tab. Click  Animation Pane  on the ribbon. Each box on the right side corresponds to the order of an object's animation. Drag-and-drop to sequence them in the proper order. 

Sequence PPTX Animations

2. Use Animations Sparingly

This tip might come as a surprise. An entire article centered around animations, yet now we're suggesting that you skip most animations?

The point of animation is to stand out from the rest of the content in your presentation. If you start adding animation to every element, you're likely to overwhelm an audience.

PPTX too many animations

Less is more. Use only one to two key animations per slide to keep your slides readable.

3. Adjust an Animation's Duration

An animation's  duration  refers to the speed at which it plays. Adjust it by selecting an object, then making sure you're on the  Animations  panel.

Change the  Duration  time box, shown in the upper right corner of the screenshot below. Click  Preview  to play it.

Animation duration 2

4. Add Animations to Infographics

More presenters than ever use infographics  to explain those complex ideas, visually.

Herein lies the power of PowerPoint animations. When you build an infographic to explain ideas, you're leveraging graphics to explain ideas. Your audience is sure to appreciate that.

To take the idea to the next level, use animations to stage the infographic onto the slide in steps. Showing the content one step at a time makes it easier to understand. 

Learn more about infographics with the help of our guide below:

animated powerpoint background for presentation

5. Use Slide Transitions

The focus of this tutorial was to add animations or motion that affect slide objects. There's another type of animation that many presenters use: slide transitions. 

Slide transitions are the animations that play to transform one slide into the next. They're a good way to re-capture the audience's attention and shift to a new talking point.

To add a slide transition, jump to the  Transitions  tab and choose an animation effect. You'll instantly see a preview. Try to stick to simple animations, much like the tips we've already shared for object animations.

Add slide transitions

  • The Transitions animations: Transitions effects occur during slide transitions. They can make appear or disappear slides through different effects. They are generally used to highlight a section transition or to highlight a message.
  • Elements Animations. PowerPoint provides an elements animation engine, that allows objects like texts, shapes and images to have animations effects of entrance, exit or path. Said this, you can animate shapes in a cartoon fashion, or you can just add simple effects to highlight the shape. Applied to cartoon vectors this effect can generate professional effect suitable for eLearning, promotional presentations and even videos.
  • The navigational animations (generated by the Zoom feature)
  • Morphing transitions
  • 3D Objects animations generated with Windows 3D rendering engine.

What is an Animated PowerPoint template?

An Animated PowerPoint template is a presentation which provides animated placeholders.

If you want to navigate or move through the presentation, complex animations are ideal. Or if you just want to create a loop presentation with a cinematic effect, image transitions and 3d objects animations should fit your need. For more information we recommend you to read our tutorial on how to make a good presentation .

Microsoft’s office web apps have a fresh new design, will linux’s new run0 command run sudo out of town, quick links, animate an image background in powerpoint.

It's easy to improve the appearance of your Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow by including an attractive background . You might use a color, gradient, or pattern, or insert an image . Another way to make your background appealing is by animating it.

If you use Microsoft PowerPoint on Mac, you have the option to animate a still slide background. This adds subtle movement to the image, so it doesn't distract from your slideshow or its message.

As of February 2022, this feature is only available in PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 for Mac and PowerPoint 2021, 2019, and 2016 for Mac.

To set an image as an animated slide background in PowerPoint, you simply start by inserting the picture on your slide. If you already have an image on the slide you want to use, you can skip the first step below.

Related: How to Control When a Picture Appears in PowerPoint

Go to the Insert tab and select the Pictures drop-down box in the Images section of the ribbon. Choose where you'd like to add the image from: Photo Browser, Picture From File, Stock Images, or Online Pictures.

Insert image options in PowerPoint on Mac

Select the image on the slide and head to the Picture Format tab.

Selected image and the Picture Format tab

Click "Animate as Background" on the right side of the ribbon.

Animate as Background button in the ribbon

A window will appear prompting you to select the important points on the image. These points determine the motion path for the animation.

Click to select each point. The path will move from the highest number to the lowest. When you finish, click "Apply."

Setting up the motion path

The image will be automatically resized to cover the entire slide as the background. So if your image is portrait instead of landscape, you'll need to resize or crop it .

To view the animation, go to the Slide Show tab and pick "Play From Current Slide."

Play the slideshow from the current slide

You'll see your image move very slowly, from your highest number point to your lowest. Again, this is a subtle animation which makes it nice if you have text or other elements you're speaking to on the slide.

To edit the motion path, select the image, return to the Picture Format tab, and pick "Animate as Background" as you did initially. Then, click the new path you want to use and hit "Apply" to save the change.

By adding a subtle animation to your slide background, you can give a little extra pizzazz to your slideshow or automatically move to a key part of the image.

You can add text and other content to the slides over your background images, and they'll remain in place while the background moves behind them.

How to Create Moving Backgrounds in PowerPoint (Step-by-Step)

  • PowerPoint Tutorials
  • December 3, 2017

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to combine two PowerPoint animation tricks together to create moving backgrounds for your images in PowerPoint.

Animation trick #1: A combination of the Fly In and Split animations to create an interesting reveal effect.

Animation Trick #2 (Bonus):  How to use a motion path on a background image to create a rolling background effect/

In the example I build out in this tutorial, I’ll show you how to reveal a majestic tower against a bright blue sky and then make the sky move in the background.

To learn more about creating PowerPoint backgrounds, and where you can get free ones, read our guide here .

Part #1: Setting up your picture

1. find a picture with good contrast.

The first step in this PowerPoint animation tutorial is to find a picture that has a nice clean contrast with the background (you don’t want your center object to be touching anything or blending into the background).

For this example, I’m going to use the picture of the tower below.

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 1 Step #1 - Finding the right Picture

2. Remove the picture’s background

With your tower (or other image) selected, in PowerPoint 2010 or PowerPoint 2013, navigate to the Picture Tools Format Tab, and select Remove Background.

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 1 Step #2A - Remove Picture Background

To remove the background, you want to adjust the frame around the center object of your picture, in this case the tower. The purple area is what will be removed from the image; the colored area is what will remain within the image.

Depending on your picture, you might need to use the “Mark Areas to Keep” and “Mark Areas to Remove” commands to correctly remove the background.

Once the background is all purple, select keep changes.

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 1 Step #2B - Remove Picture Background

Once you are done removing the background, you should be left with just the center object of your picture.

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 1 Step #2C - Remove Picture Background

Part #2: Building your reveal animation framework

1. turn on the g ridlines.

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #1 - Turn On the PowerPoint Gridlines

2. Frame your picture

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #2A - Frame the Picture

3. Adding your background image

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #3 - Send Picture to the Back

4. Stretch your background image

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #4A - Stretch Out the Picture

5. Fill in the left side of your slide

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #5A - Insert a Rectangle

6. Group the sky with the background rectangle

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #6 - Group the Sky and Tower

7. Duplicate your slide

animated powerpoint background for presentation

8. Crop your background image

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 2 Step #8 - Crop the Background Image

Part 3: Adding the PowerPoint animations

1. add the fly in animation to move your background.

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #1 - Add the Fly In Animation

2. Add effect options to the Fly In animation

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #2A- Fly In Effect Option Right

3. Open the Animations Pane and adjust the Fly In animations

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #3A - Open the Animations Pane

4. Add a Split animation

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #4A - Add the Split Animation

  • Set the animation to Start With Previous so that it lines up with the frame animations we previously set
  • Set the Duration to .5 seconds
  • Set the Delay to 1.0 seconds

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #4C - Adjust the Animation Settings

5. Add a black background to the right side of the second slide

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #5 - Add a Black Foreground

6. Adding a Motion Path to the background image

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #6A - Ungroup

7. Add a screen on the left side of the slide

PowerPoint Reveal Animation Trick Part 3 Step #7 - Add a Black Rectangle on the Left

Bonus moving background tricks

1. copy and paste the sky animation.

Bonus Window PowerPoint Animation Trick Step #1 - Copy and Paste the Sky Animation

2. Copy and paste the Sky animation

Bonus Window PowerPoint Animation Trick Step #2 - Find a Window Frame

3. Extend the window frame across the slide

Bonus Window PowerPoint Animation Trick Step #3 - Extend The Window Across the Slide

4. Remove the window

Bonus Window PowerPoint Animation Trick Step #4A - Remove the Window

5. Change the color tone of the sky

As you can see, what’s great about these techniques is that you can reuse these pieces or swap the out for others once you make them.

You can add a different sky (or a different background entirely) behind the window or the tower, for instance, once you have the background removed.

Or, you can use the sky with another window, such as a plane window, for example. You can also change the picture you’re revealing – so you can replace the tower picture for anything else that’s the same size if you add the same Split animation with the same timings.

Play around with these yourselves and see what other combinations you can come up with! If you enjoyed this tutorial, you can learn more ways to boost your PowerPoint skills here .

What Is an Animation in Microsoft PowerPoint (Definition)?

PowerPoint animations are visual effects for the objects in your PowerPoint presentation. PowerPoint animations bring objects like text, images, or charts on or off your slide.

Microsoft calls these entrances and exits. An entrance is an animation that brings something onto the slide. An exit moves an object off the slide. Use an animation to make an object enter or exit your slide (or even move it between spots on a slide.)

My recommendation is to completely build out your presentation first and add animations later. Focus on content and the ideas you want to convey. Add the sizzle later in the form of well-timed animations.

PPT animations are the visual effects for objects on your slides. Transitions are the animations that occur when you change slides. This tutorial covers only PPT animations.

How to Make Your First Animation

Read on to learn more about how to customize PowerPoint animations and work quickly with templates.

The tips in this section were written using macOS and Microsoft 365. If you’ve got a different operating system or a different version of PowerPoint, your steps may be slightly different.

Download the beautiful Orange presentation animation template from Envato Elements today.

Let’s learn PowerPoint animation using a template. This is the Orange Animated PowerPoint Template . You can download it today from Envato to follow along as we learn how to add animation in PowerPoint! It’s the perfect tool to learn PowerPoint animations.

It’s easy to add an animation to your PowerPoint presentation. After you’ve finished inputting all your content into a PowerPoint file, begin adding your animations:

  • Click on an object to select it on any slide. This could be an image, chart, or block of text.
  • Now, find the Animations tab on the ribbon. This is the control center for PPT animation.
  • Find the Animation menu, which has star icons on it. Each one represents an animation effect.
  • Click on one of the animation effects to add it to the selected object. In this example, I’m going to click on Fade so that the text fades in.

Here, I clicked on the image on my PowerPoint slide. Then, I chose the simple yet elegant Fade animation to bring it onto the slide. (Photo: Envato Elements)

You’ll know that a slide contains animation when a small orange box with a number appears on the slide. Preview your animations by clicking on the Preview button on the far-left side of the PPT Animation tab.

Click on the Preview button of the Animations tab to play a preview of your animations. (Photo: Envato Elements)

Your animation will play when you switch to Slide Show mode. Each time you click the mouse button or press a button on a presentation “clicker,” the slide will advance. This could mean going on to the next slide or animating in the next slide object.

That’s it! You’ve added your first animation to PowerPoint. Practice how to add animation in PowerPoint with another element, such as a chart or image. Let’s look at other PPT animations.

Explore PowerPoint Animation Styles

PowerPoint has a great variety of styles with which to animate objects on your slides. With the animation presets you can quickly bring an object on or off a slide with one click.

On the Animations tab of the ribbon, there are many one-click styles to apply to an image. Scroll down in this menu to view them. See the screenshot below for the full list of animations:

Launch PowerPoint’s full gallery of animations by clicking the dropdown arrow in the Animation section of the Animations tab. (Photo: Envato Elements)

When you think of how to add animation in PowerPoint, be creative. And don’t hesitate to try out different ideas. You have countless options. As you design one presentation after another, you’ll want to explore your options. This panel lets you do exactly that. It’s how to insert animation on PowerPoint fast.

The names of the slides are also good clues for understanding what the animations will do. “Fly out” causes an object to exit the PowerPoint slide, while “Float In” is indicative of an object coming onto the slide.

Spend time trying out the various PowerPoint animation effects. Click on each one and PowerPoint will play a short preview, right on the slide.

How to Add Your Second PowerPoint Animation

So far, we’ve animated a single object onto our PowerPoint slide. You know how to get a single animation in PowerPoint. Now, let’s learn how to add animation in PowerPoint with a second object.

To add a second PPT animation to a slide, simply select another object. Then, click on one of the animations from the menu again.

Shown here is a slide with many animations. Look for the small numbers to find them. (Photo: Envato Elements)

Once you add a second animation to a slide, you’ll notice that each animated object has a small number in a box next to it. That number indicates the order the objects will animate in. A box with a “ 1 ” will be animated first, and a “ 2 ” will be animated after it.

What if you want to change the order of our animations? In PPT, how to add animation also includes sequencing steps. Read on to find out about sequencing the animation in PPT options.

How to Sequence Your PowerPoint Animations

You’ve just learned how to animate slides in PowerPoint. With an array of effects added, you’ve built an animated slide that’s ready to share!

But first, you may want to change the sequence of the animations. In other words, you want to adjust the order in which they appear.

In this example, I want the text box reading “Global Growth” to fly in first. Then, I want it to be followed by the image of the factory on the right. Fortunately, this is easy to do with Microsoft PowerPoint. To start, be sure you’re working on the Animations tab on the ribbon. Then, click on the button labeled Animation Pane.

You’ll see a sidebar menu open on the right side of your PowerPoint window. This is the Animation Pane. Think of it as the control center for animations in PowerPoint. It’s ready to help you re-sequence animations fast.

On the Animation Pane, you can reorder animations and change up the sequence of how they appear. (Photo: Envato Elements)

Right now, the photo shows a “1” beside it. This indicates that it comes onto the slide first. The “Global Growth” text comes in second, noted by the number “2” next to it.

On the Animation Pane , all that we need to do is drag and drop to re-sequence the animations. If I want the text to come in first, I’ll move it up in the list of my animations. Simply click and drag on its title in the Animation Pane to move it into a new position.

Notice that the number beside the text box animation changes from a “2” to a “1”. This indicates that it is now the first animated object on the slide.

Click and drag animations in the Animation Pane to change up their sequence. (Photo: Envato Elements)

When you’re managing many objects on a single slide, the Animation Pane is helpful. It can help you visualize the order in which objects are entering or leaving your PowerPoint slide. Plus, you can quickly reorder them by dragging and dropping them.

Control How to Animate Slides in PowerPoint

It’s key to learn how to get animation in PowerPoint that fits your needs. For example, it’s a great idea to alter the duration and triggers for animations. Add animation to PowerPoint in these cases for an attention-getter.

By default, PowerPoint assigns standard values to various types of animation. Often, this is the perfect timing. But in other cases, you might want to make adjustments.

Similarly, you can change what triggers an animation. By default, animations start On Click. This means that your cursor or clicker causes each animation to start.

Again, it’s useful, but it also means that you have to start each animation manually. If you’ve sequenced animations, you may want them to automatically start one after the other.

Use the Timing section to adjust how PowerPoint animations start and how long they last.

To make these changes, select an animated object and return to the Animations tab. On the right side, you’ll see the Timing section. Here, you can change the starting trigger by opening the Start dropdown. Duration and delay settings can be adjusted using the menus below.

When to Use Animations in Your PowerPoint Presentations

Here’s the thing: presentations aren’t about animations or how fancy your slides are. They’re all about holding your audience’s attention.

This quote from one of my favorite movies is a great way to think about using animations:

“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could , they didn’t stop to think if they should. ” – Jurassic Park

Just because you can add animations doesn’t mean you should. Are they improving your presentation or distracting your audience from your message?

Use too many animations, and your audience might feel as distracted as this freelancer. (Image source: Envato Elements)

Using too many animations is distracting. When you’ve got objects flying in and out of the slide, you’ll lose the attention of your audience. Less is more while you learn how to insert animation on PowerPoint.

Here are four key principles for applying animations in PowerPoint tastefully:

  • Keep objects off-screen until you’re ready to talk about them.
  • If you put everything on the slide at once, your audience will stop paying attention to what you’re saying and focus on the text.
  • Use simple transitions such as Appear or Fade to keep your slides simple and clean.
  • Limit your animations to one or two per slide to maintain simplicity.

What is the definition of animation in Microsoft PowerPoint that goes too far? Anytime the animation supersedes the content, it’s time to rethink things.

So, when should you use presentation animation in PowerPoint? I find it most useful when:

  • I’m kicking off my slides. When you think of how to put animation in PowerPoint, start at the beginning. An opening animation is a great way to grab audience focus right away.
  • I’m moving from idea to idea. Animations add a clear visual transition. They’re a good tool when you’re changing topics or moving from point to point.
  • I need to add emphasis. Animations are best used to emphasize ideas. They add motion, which captures the viewer’s attention. When used sparingly, they’re a powerful way to highlight what matters.

Play the presentation to yourself before presenting it. If you feel like you’ve got too many animations on your slide, consider removing some of them.

5 Quick PowerPoint Presentation Animation Tips

If you’re learning how to animate slides in PowerPoint, it helps to have a few top tips. Let’s walk through five of our favorite fast facts that show you how to get animation in PowerPoint.

1. Animate Your Data

More than ever, PowerPoint presentations are full of data visuals that tell stories. Audiences love charts that help them understand your message visually.

Why not add animations to your data? With the help of our quick screencast , you can learn to do just that.

2. Survey Your PowerPoint Animations Before Starting

Many of the recommended templates include more than one PowerPoint animation. Survey your slides by reviewing all the active animations before you start.

Click on Animations on PowerPoint’s ribbon. Instantly, you’ll see numbered icons on each object that features an animation. As you learn how to insert animation on PowerPoint, review what’s already included in the template. This helps you avoid deleting any key objects.

3. Create an Animated Photo Slideshow

One of the most popular formats for a presentation is a slideshow. And every slideshow is better with animations that smoothly shift from one slide to the next.

4. Use Slide Transitions

This tutorial doesn’t cover transitions, a form of animation that helps shift between two slides. Use those transitions as an animation to bring the focus back to the slide.
