Motion Path Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint and Presentation Stuff | Scoop.it
Explore Motion Path animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.
Indezine's insight:
The three basic animation types in PowerPoint: entrance, emphasis, and exit animations are something we have already explored. The fourth animation type is called Motion Path animations, and this is something more advanced in nature than the basic animation types explored so far. Motion Path animations determine the route (path) and the direction in which the animated slide object moves across or around on the slide. For example, you can move a slide object up, down, right, or left, on a preset or created motion path, or possibly anywhere you want.

Learn how to add more Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.
Indezine's insight:
Once you have made Guides visible on your PowerPoint slides, they show up in the same position on all other slides within the presentation. You'll find that only two Guides, one horizontal and one vertical Guide are visible at first, and these two Guides intersect at the center of the slide. Most of the time, this might work for you, but you can actually add more Guides since these can help in positioning slide objects better across successive slides.

Open and Closed Motion Paths in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Learn about open and closed paths for Motion Path animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.
Indezine's insight:
Motion paths are paths (or lines) through which slide objects animate. These motion paths are like any other line with curves, points, etc. If you are familiar with the Line, Curve, Scribble, and Freeform drawing tools in PowerPoint, you know that paths can be either open or closed. A circle is a good example of a closed path, whereas an arc is an open path. So, how is the concept of open and closed paths relevant to Motion Path animations in PowerPoint?

You add content to the slides in almost the same way as you use brushes to create strokes of paint to color a canvas. However unlike a canvas, in PowerPoint, you don't have a non-structured freedom, and this can be good in many ways. Primarily, PowerPoint categorizes each slide type into one of its prescribed layouts.
