Understand Google Slides animations and transitions

Transitions occur when you move from slide to slide during a presentation. Google slides contain infections that break, fade, slide,
Flip, light a cube and bounce on a gallery.

Animations highlight text and images on a slide. Animation helps direct eye flow during its direction. Where should your audience look. Google Slides contains animations that appear, disappear, fade, fly, zoom and rotate.

Note: You can also take your presentation design a step further by collaborating with others or adding audio to your Google Presentations presentation, as Google Presentations is a fully developed, web-based presentation creation application.

Play with different transitions and animations and choose the ones that match the tone of your presentation. Less is better when using transitions and animations in Google Slides.

You want your audience to be captivated by your cool graphic steps, but you don’t want to distract them from a constantly moving presentation. Limit the use of transitions and animations to keep the audience focused on the topic of your presentation.

Here are some more guidelines:

  1. Considering Overdoing: Think about your audience, the purpose of your presentation, and the image you want to project. Then choose your transitions and animations wisely.
  2. Avoid spinning and bouncing slides – Choose subtle animations and transitions that fade and dissolve. Complex movements can be a distraction.
  3. Automate animations as much as possible: Set animations to start automatically with or after a previous animation. If you focused focused on starting the next animation, you consider yourself not focused on your audience.
  4. Use animations to keep your audience focused: Create animations to help your audience focus on the content of your presentation. Use animations to highlight important points, ideas, and concepts.
