Hi! In this article, I will teach you how to add multiple animations in PowerPoint.
What are multiple animations in PowerPoint?
Let’s say you inserted a rectangle into your PowerPoint presentation. Now you want to add some animations, let’s say you want to make that rectangle appear. So you add fade-in animation. But let’s say after 2 seconds you want that object to disappear. There you will use multiple animations because there are more animations than just one related to one object.
How to do it?
That really easy, but beginners often have problems with that. Alright, so you launched your PowerPoint, inserted a rectangle, opened Animations Tab and chose fade-in animation. Now you click fade-out animation.
And here the problem comes. PowerPoint added fade-out animation instead of fade-in. This animation was “overwritten”.
But the solution is really easy. Once you added one animation, you need to click the “Add Animation”, located right next to Animation Pane (of course, in Animation Tab).
Now, by using “Add Animation” you can add multiple animations to the same object in PowerPoint.
