PowerPoint’s Morph transition effect continues to impress, and among my favorite users of this transition effect is INSCALE, a design agency based in Germany. We will talk more about Morph and INSCALE soon, but first do look at their Morph showcase presentation.
Do notice that the folks at INSCALE have really pushed Morph to the limits, and they have many more presentations that we will explore in upcoming posts.
I asked INSCALE’s Dominic Späth: What inspires you about Morph?
Here’s Dominic’s answer: Naturally, listeners crave interaction. We want to give them something unexpected, something to think about. That’s why we are drawn to PowerPoint Morph as a design tool. It’s technical advances allow our designers to fully explore their creativity while staying within an easily editable format. Importantly, the many other platforms that have arisen as a neighbor to PowerPoint don’t do anything other than muddle the waters of the presentation field.
This way, our PowerPoint movies take on an entirely new dimension, and our clients can leverage the familiar platform. Effective design is simple – why bother with all of the superfluous programs and add-ons?
So, here’s another question for Dominic: As a design agency, how do you cope up with the fact that Morph playback may not be available on many client systems?
His response: Our clients want outstanding and innovative, yet easily editable presentations. We know that our clients don’t always have the newest PowerPoint version, but we wanted to make sure that they can still take advantage of this new feature.
We made Morph accessible by offering a rendered video, along with a lifetime Update Service in case our client wants to edit their Morph presentation for a later event. The video file is compatible on a variety of platforms, without compromising the design.
