PowerPoint Animations Mastery Section

Pay audience today is highly distracted there are a million things vying for their attention at any given point of time so we have two big issues arising out of that which kill most business presentations first it is extremely hard to get the attention of the audience against all that distraction second even if we do manage to get their attention it is far harder to retain that attention throughout the presentation so the success of your business presentation today depends on how well you manage the attention of your audience now the two questions are how do you get your audience to pay attention to your message and how do you get them to stay attentive throughout your entire presentation the answer is to use purposeful custom animation in your presentations let me show you a small demonstration of how purposeful custom animation solves the issue of getting and holding the audience’s attention this is the slide we want to present as a visual story please pause the video for a second and go through the content as you can see there is a lot being said on the slide to present this big and complex idea in one go will be a recipe for disaster because your audience would feel overwhelmed by the information now let us see how to present the same information using purposeful custom animation now as soon as you open the slide this is what you see since there is very little on the slide there is no overwhelm for the audience second there is incomplete information on the slide this builds curiosity in your audience’s minds so they hang on till you finish saying your narration now let me narrate the slide for you meeting customer expectations is key to survival for companies the companies that don’t meet the expectations grow weak and fade away those that meet expectations survive but it is those companies that exceed customer expectations that thrive in any market however the expectations of customers keeps increasing all the time if you want to be a consistent winner in the long term you need to exceed those expectations consistently end of narration now did you observe that you couldn’t take your eyes off the slide till I finished presenting I presented the same complex information but this time in small digestible chunks the right use of animation made the information feel like a story so you were glued to the slide that is why when you use custom animation wisely you no longer just deliver your slides you tell powerful visual stories that are hard to forget for your audience unfortunately there is no course in the market that teaches you how to engage your audience with powerful visual stories using custom animation that is why I included a truly comprehensive section on custom animation in ram gopal powerpoint mastery

animation there is a variation of the flare that can be like this not only the entire bullet point text you can apply some interesting effects to individual words like this for example when we create a see-through text effect by using animation creatively you can really mimic a video on your slide why words you can apply creative animation to individual letters for example you can present your acronyms in style like this so on a click each letter gets the word that it stands for and this is a very memorable way to present your acronyms especially when the acronyms are a bit more complex

details of a picture you have this interesting animation that reveals the text behind a picture on a click a hand comes and pulls down the picture and reveals the text explanation right behind the picture this is a very interesting way to reveal some key statistics of some of the pictures that you show on your slide these exercises have been carefully chosen to set you up in the right direction once you pick up the ropes you can really create some advanced hand animations all by yourself to help you follow along with our step-by-step video tutorials I’m including downloadable PowerPoint files for each of the effects that I have just shown you you can even use them as templates to build your own slides now let us go to the segment on transition effects mastery the lessons you will learn are these there are altogether ten different lessons on transition effects mastery segments you can pause the video and go through the topics to give you a taste of some of the lessons you will learn in this segment first you will learn how to mimic the way in which the various graphics are organized on your slide with transition effects as you can see here we have three different cards introducing three different speakers now if I want to show each of the speakers details then I can use a transition which shows the shuffling of cards like I show the first topic and the first speaker and then I shuffle the car and show the second one and then I shuffle the cards and show the third one this way transition exactly mimics the way in which the graphic is set on the slide then I show you how to clearly show a large picture like this which is very hard for the audience to read now you can use push transition to show different parts of the map like this as you can see it almost gives the feeling that you are panning a camera across the large graphic then I show how to reveal a product with flair using another useful transition effect as you can see this is a very interesting way to reveal your grand product and this is done entirely using native transition in PowerPoint then I show you how to create crumpled ball effect using one of the native transitions in PowerPoint for example you want to talk about a few of the old practices that need to be discarded a beautiful way to show this in a visual way is on a click all the old practices get crumpled up and thrown away to start a new clean slate now if you want to say that I want to bring back some of the old practices that we used to have all I need to do is to press page up and I have the old things revealed these effects are created entirely using native transition capabilities of PowerPoint and I will show you how to achieve such stunning effects in a step-by-step way in this program then I show you how to visualize the concept of uncovering a new idea or if you want to use it in Reverse how to cover some of the mistakes that you have already done I even show truly innovative ideas like open door effect to reveal new opportunities and closing the door back again all using transitions and nothing more I didn’t show how to take the game to a whole new level by combining pictures animations and transitions take a look at the effect on a click a hand comes and pulls down the screen to reveal the slide and once you finish presenting the slide you click again and the hand pulls back the slide it is almost impossible to believe that you can create such a by combining animation with transition because at this point your slides look like they are videos in fact you can use screen recording software to record and reuse such awesome transitions for your video projects then I show you how to achieve transition without using transition at all see this cool technique to reveal a picture with a transition I created manually on a click the picture gets revealed in a beautiful stylish way we take the idea to the next level by creating what I call as reverse transition here certain parts of the slide will remain stationary while other parts transition away on a click take a look at how the particular effect happens as you can see here these things remain stationary and the things at the bottom keep changing this is another way to transition into different concepts and make your slides look really interesting now I have a question for you have you ever seen any course that goes into a small topic like slight transition to such deep levels if you observe closely you would realize that not a single idea I discussed in this course is for mere academic interest every single technique is downright easy to use and you can apply it in your next presentation to spice up your slides that is what makes PowerPoint mastery program so practical while being unbelievably comprehensive then let us move on to the next segment called interactive presentations mastery here I start with an introduction of the essential elements in a self-running presentation then I provide elaborate lessons on the key inner components of kiosk type presentations like how to set up a presentation in kiosk mode how to advance slides only on clicking the hyperlink etc you can pause the video and go through some of the topics that we cover here I especially want to draw your attention to this small but interesting technique of adding a screen tip to label parts of a picture take a look at the slide as soon as I move my cursor on one of the persons in this group photo the name of the person is revealed like in this case the name of this person is John and if I want to move my cursor to this person the name is revealed as Mahesh and then if I move my cursor to this person the name is revealed as Eva now this technique comes in quite handy in a technical presentation where you want your audience to explore the various parts of the image by browsing their cursor over the next section is trigger animations mastering here we have step-by-step video tutorials on the creative uses of trigger animation you can pause the video and take a look at the various topics we cover under this section to get a taste of how trigger animations work take a look at this interactive agenda slide as you can see there are 5 items here in agenda I can go to any specific item by just clicking on the item for example if I want to know more about item 4 I click on it and I go to the slide that explains item for once I am done going through that I can click on this back arrow and it can go back to the main page if I want to go to agenda item 2 I can click on it and it takes me to agenda item 2 so that is how the interactive agenda slide works and is also one of the ways in which trigger animation is used commonly I will show you how to take your trigger animations to the next level by creating sub menus for example here on the slide I have two main buttons if I want to go to any particular submenu I need to click on one of the buttons and each of them represent a slide let us say I want to go to 1b I click on it and I go to 1b I click on the home button and get back to this main page and let us say I want to explore main 2 I click on it and if I want to go to 2a I click on it and I go to that specific slide now can you see the possibilities it is possible for you to create elaborate sub menus while creating your slides so you give your audience the choice to go through and explore your presentation in the way they want not only slides you can use trigger animation to present your charts in an interesting way take a look at the simple chart let say I want to talk about only one of the three series that are shown here let us say I want to pick series two and I don’t want to show other series I just click on series 2 and only series 2 gets shown if I want to show series 3 I click on it and only see these three get shown it is a very interesting way to present your charts because you now give your audience to explore the chart the way they want and as if that is not enough I show you how to use trigger animation on your graphics take a look at this 2×2 matrix let us say I want to expand one of the four cells here I click on the cell and it expands and I click on another one it expands and if you want to close down this explanation all I need to do is to click on that shape and it closes down can you see the possibilities here there are many interesting ways in which you can use this idea in making your slides more interactive not only for interactive graphics but you can use trigger animation for interactive picture quiz session let us say you have 4 questions to ask your class you can pick one of the students in the class and ask the person to choose the question he wants to answer let us say the person chooses number three you ask the question and once the person answers it correctly you click on number three and that reveals a part of the picture the same way you ask another person to pick up a question and answer and if the question is answered correctly you click on it and a part of the picture gets revealed here the idea is for the people to guess the picture that is behind all these blocks this is a very interesting way to create summary sessions or quiz sessions for your class to make the class far more engaging and interesting if you don’t want to conduct an elaborate quiz session you can conduct a simple question answer session by giving a description and asking the people to reveal the picture behind it as soon as the person answers you can click on this and the picture behind it is revealed to verify whether the person has said the correct answer or not now can you see the possibilities of using trigger animation to make your classes engaging not only this you can use trigger animation in ways you would not have even imagined take a look at the switch I can click on and off at will using trigger animation I can make a bar appear or disappear with trigger animation not only trigger animations you can create some very interesting hover over animations like this you see here a red rectangle as soon as I move my cursor on top of the red rectangle it converts into a green rectangle and when I move my cursor over green one it turns into red can you imagine the possibilities here the red could mean a picture and the green could mean the explanation so you can have a number of photos on one slide and you can have your audience explore each of the different pictures by hovering over the different pictures to understand the explanations there are so many mind-boggling ways in which you can create interactive presentations using PowerPoint in this course I show you every one of those techniques in a simple step-by-step way to support you all along I also provide you downloadable PowerPoint files for you to reverse engineer and learn there is no other course book or workshop that teaches you such interactive techniques at such levels of depth we then learn about how to use multimedia creatively and effectively on our slides the first segment talks about inserting and editing audio in PowerPoint the lessons covered in this segment are these you can always pause the video to go through the topics here in a similar way we learn how to insert and edit videos in PowerPoint as well and there are same elaborate lessons given for inserting and editing videos in PowerPoint as well to give you a taste of what you will learn about inserting and editing videos in PowerPoint you will learn how to place your video in a very interesting and creative picture placeholder like this then you will learn how to use animation to introduce a video onto your slide as you can see here this hand is introducing a mobile phone on which the video plays then I’ll show you how to use hand animation to make your videos play another interesting technique isn’t it and as that is not enough I show you how to add bookmarks to your videos so you can show your video at any given point this technique comes in quite handy especially if you have long video in which you want to show only a small portion not only this I take it to the next level by adding animation on cue of these bookmarks for example I have three bookmarks here on the first cue first bookmark I’ll have the first animation appear which is the caption for this video and on the third bookmark you will have a new graphic that emanates from here take a look at how this one plays I play this and on the first bookmark time you will see that we have the caption appearing and then we have the object appearing in the third bookmark interesting right you will not only learn how to insert and use video files on your slides effectively you will also learn how to convert your presentations to videos we have an entire segment on this and the topics covered are these you can pause the video and read the contents those are the courses and mini courses including in one section called custom animations mastery once you finished learning all the lessons in this section you will be able to use custom animation like a pro 90% of professional designers of PowerPoint don’t know more than 70% of what I teach in this section can you imagine the advantage you gain over your colleagues by mastering this section not only do I teach you different and creative techniques but I teach those techniques in a simple step-by-step way using screencast videos so even if you have never used custom animation in your life before you would be able to master the techniques and become a pro in a few days I hope I have managed to give you an idea of how in-depth this course is about custom animations I’ll see you in the next video which explains the next section you you
