Create Animation Projects with Google Slides

Who said that presentations have to be a series of static slides? You can add animations to objects on slides or transitions to entire slides to make it more appealing. A transition can be simple like fading to the next slide or it can be a flashy effect. Any object can be animated and Google slides make it easy to apply these effects adding emphasis or polishing your presentation.

Google slides have it all, you can create classic cell by cell animations and use the autoplay slideshow to share them with your audience. You can embed it in web pages or use it as a part of the presentation which means you can put animation anywhere there is a web browser. Google slides have just one pane to manage all your transitions and animations allowing you to configure the transition and all animations for the current slide easily. However, just keep in mind that transitions and animations are best used in moderation that is, adding too much of these effects can make your presentation look silly and distract your audience.

Here are some steps to follow.

  • Steps to add transition:

First, select the desired slide then find the transition command in the toolbar of Google slides and click it.

Next, the animation pane will appear, click on it, a drop-down menu will appear where you need to select a transition such as fade, flip, cube, slide from left etc. whichever you want.

The transition will be applied to the current slide. You can adjust the speed of the transition and can apply the same to all the slides in your presentation.

  • Steps to add animation:

Select the slide where you want to add the animation and then right-click the desired object, a drop-down menu will open where you need to select Animate.

As soon as you select animate, the animations pane will appear and a default animation will be added to the selected object and displayed in the pane. Here you can select the desired animation. You can even add multiple animations to one object.

The above-mentioned are the steps to ass transition and animations to the presentation slides.
