Among the several types of animations that PowerPoint 2011 provides, Entrance Effects are probably the most popular. By applying Entrance Effects, you can make your hitherto invisible slide object appear on the slide almost magically — make them appear in the time it takes to blink your eye, or get them to fly in from any direction. You can also have them grab the attention of your audience by doing a zoom in, or even better, just make it subtle with a simple fade in. Whatever entrance effect you choose, make sure you opt for something that is in sync with the topic of your presentation, and most importantly your audience.
