When you view a presentation in Slide Show view, any animations applied to slide objects typically play when you click your mouse or press the spacebar. Another option to cause the animation to happen is by clicking a button on a presentation remote — each of these options advances one animation at a time on a slide. If there are no more animations on the slide, clicking will take you to the subsequent slide. While this approach works for slides that have an animation or two, you will quickly realize that this is certainly not the way to go if your slides have tens of animations, or more. If you add that many animations to any slide, you probably want your animations to be automatically sequenced to happen one after the other, or even at the same time — that’s exactly where PowerPoint’s Animation Events can help. PowerPoint supports three types of Animation Events.
