If you need to animate PowerPoint graphics using SmartArt then this tutorial will help you to achieve the effect.
PowerPoint SmartArt graphics were introduced in MS Office 2007 and are available in PowerPoint 2010 and the new PowerPoint 2013. You can use SmartArt to quickly add nice graphics to your presentations including workflow diagrams, process diagrams as well as comparison tables or graphics with pictures. This is a great alternative to show information and an alternative to bullet points or bullet list.
