As always you can watch a recorded video about this topic by clicking right here.
Alright, let’s get started.
What is a transition in PowerPoint?
Transition in PowerPoint is just an animation between slides.
Where can i add and modify transition in PowerPoint?
You need at least two slides(because you want to create transition between these 2 slides). When you have some slides, go to the Transitions Section on ribbon. Below I inserted a screen shot that may help you.
Alright so as you can see, there are some ready Transitions. What if you want to see more of them? That’s easy, just click this dropdown arrow on right side. More transitions will pop up.
Alright so you can choose transition that you like. Of course after you select one, there will be a preview of that effect. If you would like to preview that effect sooner, just click Preview button on left side.
How to modify transition in PowerPoint?
There are a lot of transitions in PowerPoint. Majority of them you can modify, let’s say I picked Cover transition. On right side, please click Effect Options.
As you can see in Cover transition, we can change direction of this transition, for instance From Right or From Bottom-Right.
So play around with it and modify as you wish.
