How to Create Stunning PowerPoint Zoom Animation



Sharing buttons:

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

multistage process,

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

South America.

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

this area

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

once again

And this time I'm

going to choose the aspect ratio

of 1:1.

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

as well

Now, one last adjustment from

this side

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

remains and

the rest is removed.

Beautiful. Now,

the next step is to select both these shapes

Press 'Ctrl + X'

which is

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

under 'Emphasis'.

And it is called as 'Grow/ Shrink' animation.

As soon as I did that you can see

that both the objects are

animating simulataneously

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

case is

'Wheel' animation.

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

of readjustment

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

plain English

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

happening simultaneously.

Now, let us go to the 'Slide show' mode

and see the animation

in action.

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.
