Animate Text in Powerpoint
Edited by Ronniel Javier, Eng, Lynn, Charmed
One of the best features of PowerPoint 2010 edition is the option to make and save a video. You no longer need to convert the PPT file to any video format like you did with the 2007 edition. You can create a kinetic typography that Adobe After Effects does in a simple and amateur-friendly way. We know that After Effects can be a pain if you are a beginner in video editing, and PowerPoint will actually give you the best text based animation with stunning effects. You will not have to study any complicated key frames because PowerPoint has preset effect and animations, but expect it to be a bit limited compared to the functions After Effects offered. Still, I can assure you that you will be able to create professional text based presentations that are better than any others created with free video editing software. So let's get started.
- 1Download PowerPoint 2010.If you have a 2007 Microsoft office edition, you need to update or download the 2010 edition. You can purchase it directly from the Microsoft website and activate it, using the key activator given to you after you purchase the Microsoft office 2010 edition.Advertisement
- 2Open your PowerPoint.Open and start a new blank document. You can also choose different templates you want.Advertisement
- 3Add your own background.If you want to add your own background and you don't want to use any boring and solid background, you can import it easily by right clicking on your blank document, then clicking on Format Background > Fill, then click the circle next to "Picture or texture fill" and browse to choose your background image. See the screenshots below:
- 7Add a text duration and delay.This can be used to set the duration or delay the movement of your text animation. If you want longer movements, then setting your time duration will work. But if you want a fast moving text, then lower your duration. File:utryh.jpg
- 8Save your project to a video file.This is your final step, and exporting your PowerPoint presentation to a video file is easier than ever. Go to File > Save and Send > Create video. It will allow you to save your presentation to wmv file.Advertisement
