Creative Way To Animate PowerPoint Table ( HIGHLIGHT SPECIFIC COLUMNS)


In this video, I’ll share with you a creative way to animate Tables in PowerPoint I am Ramgopal from PrezoTraining.com A site that provides creative presentation ideas for trainers. The creative animation you will learn today looks like this… As you can see here, it is a simple table But we want to talk about one product at a time and provides some notes or reference points about the product. The way we do that is, on a click you can see that we lay emphasis on one product and then we write a note about the column and on the next click the emphasis moves to the next product with its associated note and then to third, and then to the fourth Interesting isn’t it? It is a very simple way to draw the viewers attention to each of the products in succession. A variation of this interesting animated table is this… where we draw the viewers attention to one row at a time That is, instead of talking about one product at a time… We’ll be talking about one parameter at a time. On a click, I draw the viewer’s attention the first parameter and then I move to the 2nd parameter Third…Fourth… …and the final one Isn’t this a more engaging way to present your table? Now the core technique that makes this animated table interesting is… the movement of this emphasis The technique can be easily learnt once you understand the basic principle Let us say you have a red dot at Point A On a click it moves to Point B and then on another click it moves from Point B to Point C That is all there is. Because if you really were to see… Point A is where the emphasis starts and from A it goes to B and from B it goes to C So the technique is just the same I am going to show you how to create that interesting A to B, B to C movement Using a simple red dot Here I am on a new slide starting from scratch First let us create a circle So let us go to Basic Shapes, pick up the Oval Tool Hold the shift button down as you draw a Circle Make it red in color and remove the outline So it looks more attractive It is now in position A We want to move it to position B, and then to C The way we do that is we go to Animations Tab in PowerPoint Ribbon and we are going to add an animation called Motion Path Animation and I am going to choose the first one called line Now, this is the default direction in which the animation happens We are going to go to Effect Options here and move the Red Dot to the right So now it goes from A to B So the first part is taken care of Its fairly simple Now the real trick lies in the 2nd step Which is how to make this dot move from here to here instead of making it move from here to here So let us see how to do that Now I going to add another animation on to the same object and whenever I do that, I don’t choose any of the animations here Because that will replace the earlier animation Now I going to add animation by choosing this option called – Add animation and since I am going to choose Motion Path Let me go to more Motion Paths option Here you can see there are options for Line Curves Go to Right animation and then say OK Now if you see, it is the same animation that has been repeated again But then we are going to make a change Now Iam going to decide where my red dot is going to end in C position So I am going to click here I am going to hold the Shift button down as I move it to the next location That is, from B to C. So it is the C point And then if you see the starting point here It is shown here with a Green dot I am going to move the starting point of this to here where the previous animation ends So I am going to click on that green Dot and I am going to hold the Shift button down As I leave it exactly where the previous animation ends and that’s it Let us go to the animation pane and you can see that there are 2 animations. and both of them are on the same object The first animation starts here and ends here and the 2nd animation it starts here and ends here and I want to speed it up May be around Point 5 seconds And observe what happens Both the animations are going to play on click, okay? So let us go to Slideshow Here it is on Point A On a click it moves to Point B and then on a click it moves to Point C It is that simple Now this is the same technique I have applied to a shape like this where I have created this shape fairly simply. I’ll show you how I have created that shape and then I will apply the same animation So let me go to the same slide that I had before Let me move this to the top Let me go to Autoshapes Menu and pick up this one called as Rounded Rectangle and there I have a Rounded Rectangle Go to shape Fill and say No Fill and go to Shape Outline and increase the weight to say 6 Points or 4.5 Points and then let us go to Autoshapes Menu under rectangles and pick up this one called as Round Same Side Corner Rectangle and then draw it Draw the shape above like this Move the Yellow Handles so that the curvature corresponds with the previous curvature and then reduce the height and do the adjustment in such a way that it snugly fits into the previous shape that you have drawn and now this and this can be grouped together So they perform as one unit Now I can take the animation from this and apply it on to this Let me show you how it is done I am going to select the object here Go to animations tab in PowerPoint Ribbon and I am going to go to the option called Animation Painter I am going to click on it and then…I am going to click on this object Now when I selected this and clicked on Animation Painter I picked up the animation associated with the object. That is both the animations are already picked up Now when I click on this object the same thing is applied to this object as well. So that is how I created this interesting animation effect To highlight individual rows or columns in a table Now let me show you some other variations of the same technique applied in different ways to lay emphasis on different columns of a PowerPoint Table Now here it is, on a click it moves from label 1 to label 2 and then to the next value… and then to the next value Once again, you know now, how exactly to work this out and another variation of this is this… Where we compare 3 different products based on various features and in this decision matrix first I introduce Saying that…Feature 1 is available in 2 products Feature 2 is available everywhere Feature 3 is available only in the first and third product etc.. So as you can see here All of this is based on the same core principle that I taught you in this particular video I hope you picked up an interesting technique that you can use in your next presentation.
