12 Principles of Animation for PowerPoint

Friday, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Seattle (UTC-7)

Animation is a critical component in presentations—it paces the flow of information, making things clearer for your audience. It supports more effective storytelling with the visuals and animations doing a lot of the work, helping people understand the key points. And it can be used to produce beautiful looking presentations, with the animation enhancing your design, making everything appear more professional.

But animation can also be terrible. If you’re still using the bounce animation, then you should probably go back to 35mm slides.

To make your presentations work and use animation effectively, you need to understand the 12 key principles of animation, first introduced by Disney and now used as a bible for animators everywhere.

In this session, you’ll learn to:

  • Use animations in PowerPoint effectively to enhance storytelling and design
  • Combine animations to create novel effects that will amaze, delight, and enrich your audience’s experience
  • Become an animations ninja, creating and using animations at super-human speeds
