Apply Custom Animation in Powerpoint

What is a Custom Animation?

Custom animation in PowerPoint refers to that user can apply or give effects to any object, text and pictures used in the slide. After reading this, the question came to your mind, what is the difference between Slide Transition and Custom Animation. In slide transition, you can give effect to the whole slide, not any particular object, picture, text used in the slide. However, with Custom Animation we can give the effects to any object/text/picture used in the slide.

How to Apply Custom Animation?

Step 1: Open PowerPoint Presentation, Click on Animation Tab

Step 2: Select the object/text you want to apply the custom animation effect

Step 3: Next click the Animation Tab on the top navigation and select the Custom Animation button
