You will need...
-A computer with PowerPoint 2007 or higher (This will work on some versions before 2007, but 07 has much better graphics)
-Time (5-15 minutes)
-(Depending on how ambitious you get with effects) A good graphics card...
Step 1: Let's start with the plan...
This instructable will go over all of those.
Step 2: Preparing the slide
1. On the ribbon go to Home>Layout (In the slides portion)>Blank
2. On the ribbon go to Animations>Advance Slide
Uncheck On mouse click
Check Automatically after
Set the value to 00:00 if it isn't already
3. On the ribbon go to Animations and make sure that the slide transition is set to No Transition
Step 3: Simple Graphics (Color Shape)
To create a basic shape:
On the ribbon go to Home>Drawing>More (The down arrow with a line over it)>(Select a shape)
1. Click on the shape you created
2.Locate (on the ribbon) Home>Drawing>Shape Fill
3.Click shape fill
4. Select either a basic color, gradient (blend), photograph, or a texture.
Step 4: 3d Rotation and Basic 3d Shaping
Go on the ribbon, and go to
Home>Drawing>Shape Effects>3d Rotation>3d Rotation Options...
Now a window opens up. You can manually adjust the rotation or chose from some preset rotations. Perspective adjusts how 3d an object looks in an environment.
Want to turn a square into a cube? Or a circle into a cylinder? Just add depth!
In the 3d Rotation Options window, select the 3-D Format Tab. A lot of things we aren't using right now come up. Locate the Depth box in the middle on the right.
I usually test numbers like 25, 50, 100, 250, 500 and then fine tune from there.
Keep the 3d Options page open for the next step!
