PowerPoint animation makes slide objects move. These slide objects can be anything you can select such as text, pictures, charts, SmartArt graphics, shapes, and even video clips. But did you know that you can combine multiple animations to happen at the same time for the same slide object, creating a custom animation effect? Imagine, an object fading and zooming at the same time! Although you can combine fade and zoom entrance animations, you really cannot combine a fade entrance with a zoom exit. PowerPoint has four types of animation, and you will learn what can be combined or not in this tutorial.
