The Best PowerPoint Shortcut for Animation (Hint: it’s a shortcut for a shortcut)
Hello everyone. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite animation shortcuts that will cut your animation time in half or more. But before I do that I want to make sure that you don’t miss out on all the free stuff on my channel. For most of my videos, I’ve included free slides or resources that you can download. Look for the link under the video in the description box. Just click the link, enter your e-mail and I’ll send you the resources just to get you started. I’ve have included these because I realize that getting started can sometimes be tough so these are meant to give you that little boost that you might need. And you can use the animation shortcut that I’m about to show you to save a bunch of time with these free slides. A lot of people have also asked me how they can get more of my slides including all the ones that are used in the introduction portion of the videos and especially that spinning globe.
Everyone wants that one for some reason. So, I’ve pulled together a Spicy Slide Pack of some of my best work, yes including the spinning globe, that you can now download, deconstruct and use for your own animations. To check out everything you get with the Spicy Slide Pack, just click the link beneath this video. Okay. So, with that said let’s check out my favorite animation shortcut which is a shortcut for the animation painter found in versions 2010 and later which quickly copies animations from one object to another, sort of like the format painter. But what’s really cool is that you can get it quickly by hitting Alt + Shift + C on your keyboard. So, for example, let’s say I’m here in the Spicy Slide Pack in my easy flip effect video slides. This is part of the intro sequence that flips these crazy smiley faces from one to another, just like this. So, this sequence is done with a swivel in and swivel out at the same time on these objects. And let’s say I want to do the same effect with the apple and the orange here and have the apple flip and reveal the orange.
I could take the time to recreate these animations which wouldn’t be super hard but what’s even easier is using the animation painter which is normally found right up here. But what’s even easier than that is using the shortcut so let’s do that right now. We go down here and click on the back Smiley then hit Alt + Shift + C, which brings up the animation painter as you can see on the cursor. Then I click on the apple and the animation is copied. And this will work for all the animations that are on one object. I then hit Escape to get rid of the painter and reset it, then I go to the front smiley, select that, and then I hit the shortcut again, Alt + Shift + C, and then the painter again is there. And click on the orange. That’s pretty much it. Let’s just delete the first two animations here that correspond to the smileys. And then if you line these up, this is what you get. Very cool. And this was a really simple example, but for more complex animations, you can probably see how the animation painter shortcut to make life a whole lot easier so definitely check it out.
And that is it. So, remember Alt + Shift + C to get the animation painter to quickly transfer your animation from one place to another. And of course, if you have a bunch of pre-made animations on what you want to practice with the animation painter, you can always check out the Spicy Slide Pack or any of the free resources under my videos. Thanks for checking out my channel and looking forward to sharing many more tips and tricks with you very soon. .
