Page transitions - Animations tab
Powerpoint offers a number of animated transition and layout actions. These give the feel of interaction and movement in presentations and allow creation of complex animated slideshows that can look like Flash Movies. Use the Animations tab.

  • Common animation thumbnails appear in the ribbon.
    • The left-most is the Current animation theme.
    • Clicking other thumbnails to the right of the Current  will change to that of the thumb you choose.
