Motion paths are paths (or lines) through which slide objects animate. These motion paths are like any other line with curves, points, etc. If you are familiar with the Line, Curve, Scribble, and Freeform drawing tools in PowerPoint, you know that paths can be either open or closed. A circle is a good example of a closed path, whereas an arc is an open path. So, how is the concept of open and closed paths relevant to Motion Path animations in PowerPoint?
