In MS PowerPoint, how one slide is removed from the screen and the next slide can be displayed during a presentation with special effects; these special effects may be considered as transitions.

Transition is the graphical feature of MS PowerPoint, in which visual effects can be integrated with images, slides, or video clips. For example, a split transition can split into two parts of each image in a slide show. In MS PowerPoint we have too many entertaining and different slide transition effects with attractive options.

Types of Transitions

In the latest version of MS PowerPoint there are only 3 types of Transition we can find these transitions in Transition tab there these transitions divided into three categories:

  1. Subtle
  2. Exciting
  3. Dynamic content

1) Subtle

This is very simple and normal animation transition which is mostly used in a basic presentation which works between slides. The transition used in subtle are None, Cut, Fade, Push, Wipe, Split, Reveal, Random bars, Shape, Uncover, Cover, and Flash.

2) Exciting

This is the most use transitions in this group, and is more difficult than Subtle. The animations of Exciting transition are typically longer and more difficult. But when we adding too many Exciting transitions in our presentation we make our presentation look less professional.

The transition used in Exciting transition is Fall Over, Drape, Curtains, Wind, Prestige, Fracture, Crush, Peel Off, Page Curl, Airplane, Origami, Dissolve, Checkerboard, Blinds, Clock, Ripple, Honeycomb, Glitter, Vortex, Shred, Switch, Flip, Gallery, Cube, Doors, Box, Comb, Zoom, Random.

3) Dynamic content

The use of this group provides transitions differently. This transition animation is applied only on the content of the slide, not applied to the background of the slides. In this Dynamic content, the transition will move only the data, not the slides themselves? By using the same background, we can visually connect between contents. Dynamic transitions also work in reverse, if we need to switch back to the previous slide.

The transition used in Dynamic content is Pan, Ferris Wheel, Conveyor, Rotate, Window, Orbit, Fly Through.
