Animations in PowerPoint are applied to help add attractive and appealing presentations. It makes the presentation looks more dynamic. It may look purely complex, but it's easy to learn and use animations in your presentations.
In this video, you will learn how to create animation gears with effects by using PowerPoint, which will help make your presentation interesting.
Here Are a Few Steps to Help You Create Such an Animation:
Step 1 - Insert three shapes: Two Trapezoids and a Rectangle
Step 2 - Flip one of the trapezoids vertically. With the two trapezoids available, snap them to both ends of the rectangle and group them. (Let's say call this object Group A)
Step 3 - Duplicate the grouped object and (Call it Group B) and rotate it 90 degrees. Align it to the horizontal and vertical position of the original Group A until we get a "Plus" and group them together
Step 4 - Duplicate this grouped "Plus" once more and then rotate it to get a multiply sign. Align the plus and multiply to sit on top of one another from the horizontal and vertical center. Group once more (Group C)
Step 5 - Create two circles of varying sizes and overlap these two over the Group C. We will get the shape of a gear. The inner-circle can be colored white to help sell the effect more. Finally, group altogether. Our gear is ready!
Step 6 - Multiply these gears and arrange them horizontally. Then apply the Spin animation (can be found in the "Emphasis" section). For every alternate gear in the series, change the spin direction from the default "Clockwise" into the "counter-clockwise" to create the illusion that the gears synergize with one another.
That was not bad...Right? Those steps were the simplest way to help create your Gear Animation to have a "Wow" presentation!
