Microsoft has added an amazing new transition effect called Morph. In many ways, you just need to design slides and PowerPoint automatically determines changes in the following slides and morphs elements between the slides!
To understand how powerful Morph can be, take a look at this YouTube embed:
I asked POPcomms’ Damjan Haylor: What do you folks at POPcomms think about the new PowerPoint Morph feature, and what possibilities does this new feature bring forth?
Here’s Damjan’s answer: PowerPoint’s new Morph feature is a powerful transition tool that will allow companies to create ever more visually engaging and persuasive stories.
It allows you to create fluid animations that go well beyond Prezi’s capabilities and when combined creatively with PowerPoint’s interactive features you can create desktop, mobile, and touchscreen presentations that just weren’t possible before.
You’ll be able to create multi-layered interactive diagrams allowing the user to drill down from top-level overview to the smallest detail and back, seamlessly. For events, you can create looping videos that will easily match motion graphics videos created in AfterEffects. And for that all-important keynote presentation or pitch, you now have a tool that allows designers to explore full motion and captivating storytelling to help sell your ideas.
With all presentations the message is key but how you present and visualize that message is just as important and the morph tool allows you to do this in ever more compelling and persuasive ways.
