Hi! I'm Ramgopal from presentation-process.com.
In this video, you will learn how to create PowerPoint zoom animation.
The awesome zoom animation effect, you will learn to create today looks like this.
As you can see here, we have a beautiful picture of a world map.
In this map. I want to focus only on South America.
The way I do this is, on a click. I have South America highlighted,
and then I zoom in on South America.
Isn't this beautiful?
It is such a useful technique that you can use this
to zoom in on a specific step in a large
Or you can use this to zoom in on
a specific individual in a group photo
Or you can use this effect,
to zoom in on a specific country
in a world map, like the way we're doing now.
Are you interested to learn how to create this
awesome effect from scratch?
Wonderful. Let's jump right in.
I'm going to start with this large picture
which covers the entire slide end to end
The first step in creating PowerPoint zoom animation is -
to duplicate this slide.
So I'm going to select this slide,
Right click and go to 'Duplicate slide' option.
Now, as you can see, we have
two copies of the same slide.
The next step is to decide on the area we want to focus on.
In this case, we want to focus only on
So, let me go to auto shapes menu ->
Under 'Basic shapes', let us pick up this tool called as 'Oval' tool.
I'm going to hold the 'Shift' button down
as I draw a circle, which covers the
area I want to focus on.
The next step, is to select the circle
Go to 'Shape fill' and choose 'No Fill'.
Then, I'm going to choose a different colour for the outline.
So the outline very clearly stands out from the rest of the photo.
In this case, I want to choose Black color for my outline.
Then, let me go to the same 'Shape outline' option,
and this time I want to increase the weight from the
default 1pt to 6 pt.
As you can see here, the area we want to focus on
is very clearly demarcated
The next step is to crop this picture in
such a way, that we only retain
and remove the rest
It's very simple to do.
The way to do this is -
First, select the picture
Go to the 'Format' tab in PowerPoint ribbon
and choose the crop tool.
I'm not going to click on the crop icon here.
I'm going to open up a small drop-down menu
which comes when I click on the small arrow under the crop icon
and here you can see the drop-down menu
I'm going to choose 'Crop to shape' option here.
The option I'm going to choose is under 'Basic shapes'
and it is the same option that I've used
to create this circular highlight.
So, let me go to the 'Oval' tool.
And as you can see here,
as soon as I clicked on the oval tool
the picture is now cropped in the oval form.
Now, as you can see, we want this
shape to be in a perfect Circle, rather than
in this elliptical shape.
So, let me go to the crop tool option
And this time I'm
going to choose the aspect ratio
Now, that gives me a perfectly circular cropping area
Now, all I need to do is to
adjust the circular cropping area
so, it focuses only on the
area I want to focus on.
So, let me go to this handle here, which I see in the corner
and I'm going to hold the 'Shift' button down
as I drag this handle, so, it focuses
on the area that I
have chosen earlier. As you can see here,
I've got the outline of the earlier circle shown
and that is where I stop.
Then, I am going to work on this corner.
I am going to hold the 'Shift' button down.
And I am going to work my way
So, I am able to crop this
pretty much inside
the circle that I had drawn earlier
I am going to work from this corner
and I am going to do the same
And I am going to work from the other corner
Now, one last adjustment from
Now, I have
a perfectly cropped circular area
in this large picture
Now, when I click outside
you can see that only the
area that I want to focus on
the rest is removed.
the next step is to select both these shapes
Press 'Ctrl + X'
the shortcut for 'Cut'.
Go back to the earlier picture
and press 'Ctrl + V'
So, both the objects are pasted exactly in the same spot
that we worked on
in the earlier duplicate slide.
Now, we don't want this duplicate slide.
So, I am going to delete it.
Now, we are going to work only with this slide.
Here we have two objects.
First is this circle.
Second is this circular cropped area.
The way we are going to achieve PowerPoint Zoom Animation
is by selecting both these objects.
The way we do this is
by clicking and dragging the cursor across these two objects. So,
we can select both the objects together.
Then, let us to go to the 'Animations' tab in PowerPoint ribbon.
and let me keep the 'Animation pane' open
by clicking on this.
So, you can clearly follow what I am going to do.
The next step is to choose a specific animation
to emphasize these two objects.
So, let me go to
the options here.
And the animation option I am going to choose is
And it is called as 'Grow/ Shrink' animation.
As soon as I did that you can see
that both the objects are
and its beautiful.
While this effect is beautiful
I want to do one more thing.
First, I want this circle
to appear with 'Wheel' animation
and then I want this 'Zoom' animation to happen. For that all I need to do
is to select the circle here.
Then go to 'Add animation'. This is very important.
I don't want you to choose the options here.
Because, that will replace whatever that we have done earlier.
So, I want to 'Add Animation'
And the 'Entrance' animation that I am going to choose in this
As you can see here,
the wheel animation brings in the circle in a beautiful way.
Now, if you see in the animation pane
you can see three animation events
On the first click
you can see that both the picture
and the circle are
getting zoomed in.
And on the next click
we have the circle appearing with wheel animation.
So, we want to do a bit
in terms of the order of animation. First, we
want the wheel animation to appear
So, I am going to click on this
and move this up
So, that is the first event that happens.
After that event
we want the zoom animation to happen
So, I am going to click on this one and
say instead of 'Start on click'
we want to say 'Start After previous'
To translate these three animation events in
On a click
we have the circle appear with wheel animation
and after that event
we have a zoom in animation
of both this picture and the circle
Now, let us go to the 'Slide show' mode
and see the animation
On the first click,
the oval appear with wheel animation
and then the 'Zoom in' animation happens.
Hope you really enjoyed this
beautiful animation trick.
If you did, I have a wonderful treat for you.
