How to customize animation

A well-formatted presentation file can better your speech, and properly adding animation effects can help capture the audience's attention. So how can we customize the animation?

Take these slides as an example.

1. Click the Animation tab at the top, then the Custom Animation task pane will pop up on the right side of the screen. Now we click Selection Pane.

2. In the Selection Pane task pane, we can see all the elements of the current slide page.001.gif

3. Click the eye icon on the right to hide the element. You can also select Hide All or Show All at the bottom of the task pane.

4. In addition, we can double-click the element to rename it.For example, we now want to change the element TextBox to WPS Office.

5. After we finish, we can sort the selected elements in Re-Order.002.gif

After setting each element, we select the element that needs to add animation effects and click Add Effect. Here, we can choose five types of animation effects, namely Entrance, Emphasis, Exit,MotionPath, andDraw Custom Path.003.gif

Click an action effect we want to add. In this video, we will take Fly in as an example.Then we can set the Start, Property and Speed of the animation. Different animation effects have different properties. Here, we can adjust the entry direction of the Fly in effect. For example, we can adjust Start as With Previous, set Direction as From Left, and set Speed as Fast.004.gif

If we want to delete the animation effect, we only need to select the project effect and click Remove.

In the Custom Animation pane, we can use the mouse to drag elements and change the animation order.005.gif

Now, let's check out the final effect of animations.

What a practical feature! Did you get it?
