How to create animated presentations [Easiest Way for 2023] 11 min read
It’s no secret that traditional presentations can get boring for the audience as they often include many sentences, subheadings, and images—and that’s just the beginning.
You also don’t want it to look like a high school science project: all over-the-top formatting and an overwhelming amount of text.
So how can you make your presentation more engaging? Well, don’t worry anymore, we have got an alternative for you!
This is where animated presentations come in.
In this article, we have compiled the quickest and easiest steps to create an animated presentation using Animaker Deck .
Introduction to Animaker Deck
With Animaker Deck, you can create your own animated characters and use tons of pre-built templates, millions of stock assets, real-time collaboration, and more!
It can do everything that Powerpoint can do and much more!
If you want to ensure your presentation keeps people engaged and interested, it’s time to change things up a bit from the usual way of creating a presentation.
So why wait? Let’s jump right into the steps!
Signing up with Animaker Deck
Understanding the user interface.
- Ways to create an animated presentation in Animaker Deck
Creating an animated presentation from scratch
Creating an animated presentation from templates, previewing & presenting the slides, sharing your work-of-art.
Click here to log into Animaker if you’re already a registered user. If you are new to Animaker, you can sign-up and create an account with Animaker Deck for free.
Before we start to create a presentation, let’s spend some time understanding the user interface of the Animaker Deck app.
On the left side, we have the Library section . Under the library section, you can access the Templates, Characters, Properties, Text, Background, Images, and Upload features with a single click.
Moving on, to the right, we have the Slides section , where you can re-arrange the slides, duplicate the slides, delete the slides, and even make edits to the slides, such as transition effects.
In the center, we have a Workspace displaying the selected slide. Here you will add fonts, and images, change the background and other properties and make all the slides customizations.
And at the top, you will find options to Share, Import, and Present the slide deck.
We shall look into each option in depth in the upcoming steps.
Ways to create an animated presentation in Animaker Deck:
There are two ways to create an animated presentation in Animaker Deck
Customizing the Background
Introducing characters, using properties, adding text .
2. Creating an animated presentation from templates
Selecting a template
- Editing the text
Customizing the Character
Editing the background images.
Let’s get started right away!
One way of creating an animated presentation in Animaker Deck is from scratch on a blank canvas. Here’s what we will cover:
Using the Backgrounds feature, you can easily search and apply backgrounds according to your preferences.
The best part is that you can customize the background colors to match your slide style.
For instance, let’s say you want to create an intro slide for your business. First, choose a suitable background for your slide from the Library.
Once you find and select a suitable background, it will appear in the central workspace. Also, you will notice a few options pop up in the workspace. It is called an “item menu.”
You can customize the colors, add filters, swap elements, and resize and delete the elements in the slide from these options.
Do all the presentations you have made so far lack personality?
You can now infuse life into the slides with the help of Animated Characters.
With Animaker Deck, you can create your personalized characters or use the built-in characters from the Library section, whichever fits your scenario.
In this instance, let’s choose one from the built-in character library.
The selected character will appear in the slide, along with the item menu. Use the options in the item menu to customize the character per your preferences.
Also, you can find the Actions and Expressions section on the right side of the workspace. Apply a suitable action and expression to your character from the available options.
If you are not happy with the pre-built characters, you can even create and introduce your own custom characters into the slide deck.
Use the Create Your Avatar button under the Characters feature to create your own custom character.
Animaker Deck offers you options to create a character between Young Adults and Children.
Pick the one as per your preference. Once you select the type, you will be taken to the character customization screen.
Here you can customize each and every aspect of your character, starting from head to toe.
This is the cherry on top of the Animaker Deck app. This way, you can introduce yourself as a character in your presentation as well.
Once you have finished the customizations, save your character and refresh the project. You can find the newly created character in the My Characters tab under the Character feature.
Animaker Deck is loaded with tons of Properties. Icons, Graphs, Charts, Numbers, Illustrations, or anything you name, are covered under the properties section.
Now, let’s add a speech bubble to the character. You can do this by searching for a speech bubble under the properties section in the library.
Once you select the speech bubble, it will appear in the workspace. Use the item menu options to customize the size and color.
You can also add animation effects to the speech bubble from the options available on the right side of the workspace.
Introducing entry and exit animations to the properties in the slide adds extra appeal to the presentation overall.
Using the Text feature, you can add text to your slides in two ways.
One is to choose and edit from the built-in text templates designed along with animation effects, and the second is to enter the text manually with text boxes.
Select a suitable text design from the Text feature under the library section.
Once you select the text design, it will appear in the workspace; now, you can type in the required text and use the item menu options to customize the color, font style, size, and alignment and adjust the case sensitivity of the text.
In this instance, we have used the empty text box design and entered the text manually. You can also use the built-in text design templates and edit them accordingly.
Also, it is possible to add animation effects to the text just like we did to the properties earlier.
You can even adjust the transparency of the text by using the transparency slider beneath the animation effects on the right side of the workspace.
This way, Animaker Deck gives a complete customization option for the users to edit and change the slides according to everyone’s preferences.
Another way of creating an animated presentation is from pre-built templates.
Here’s what we will cover:
Animaker Deck offers more than 50 professionally designed templates to choose from.
Use these templates to inject fresh ideas into your static slides!
The templates feature is on the left side under the library section.
Go carefully through the different templates and select a suitable one for your use case. Then click Add all.
A pop-up window will appear, asking you to overwrite; click confirm to insert the template.
Once you have clicked the confirm button, all the slides will be inserted into the project.
Now the best part about creating an animated presentation from templates in Animaker Deck is that every aspect of the template is completely customizable. The three main aspects of the template that you can customize as per your preferences are
- Background Images
Editing the Text
Select the Text that you want to edit. Then click on the Settings option from the item menu. You can find different options to customize the text on the right side.
For instance, you can choose a different font, change the font’s color, and adjust the line spacing. You can also make the text a Hyperlink by toggling the Hyperlink button.
Use all these options to edit the text according to your preference.
Select the Character and use the item menu to customize it. You can alter the color of the character and its attire as per your preference.
You can also introduce actions and expressions to the character and bring life to your presentation. Simply select an action under the action tab, and it will reflect in character immediately. It’s that easy to animate your characters.
Also you can even introduce your own custom characters into the slide deck.
Animaker Deck, in partnership with GIPHY, PEXELS & PIXABAY, provides access to thousands of quirky gifs and iconic images which can be used in your slides with a single click.
You have the flexibility to even customize the existing background image in the template as per your preference.
Select the Background image and use the Item Menu options to edit the elements present in the background image.
For instance, you can alter the color of the elements, resize them, group them together or delete them.
Also, you can introduce animation effects to the background image to lit up the presentation.
However, if you are still unhappy with the customizations, Animaker Deck has covered you with the Upload option.
Animaker Deck offers up to 25 GB of storage space for you to upload your custom files onto the slide decks.
That’s some steal, right?
You can upload your own custom images and images into the slide decks by using the Upload feature in the library section.
Click on the Upload button to browse files from your local disc and upload them directly to your project.
Another simpler way of customizing your background is by playing around with the colors.
You can use solid colors as a background, or even better, you can use gradient colors matching your presentation style.
You can add up to five colors and create a gradient-style background on your own!
This way, you get complete control over the selected template and customize it as per your needs.
Once you’ve finished customizing the template, click on the present button to preview the entire presentation.
Once you have added the character, text, and properties and selected the suitable background, it’s time to preview how everything looks together when presented.
To do this, head to the Present option in the top menu. Clicking on the Present button will allow you to preview the slide in fullscreen.
This way, you can check and alter the slide’s contents accordingly. It’s that simple to create an animated presentation from scratch in Animaker Deck.
Similarly, you can add more slides and customize them according to your use cases.
If you are working in a team, the next step is to get your presentation reviewed by your tea members. A collaborative review process can help elevate your presentation’s quality.
Use the Share button in the top right to share the presentation with your team. All you need to do is enter your colleagues’ email addresses and choose between copy and edit links.
Animaker Deck makes it easy for you to collaborate with your entire team and edit your slide decks together in real-time.
Also, there’s an option to preview the created slide decks with the help of the Present button in the top right corner.
Use this present button to review all the changes, animations, and other transition effects made (if any) throughout the slide.
And that’s a wrap!👏
You have now successfully learned how to create kick-ass animated presentations in a jiffy.
With the advent of influential online presentation makers like Animaker Deck, creating professional-looking animated presentations has become easier and more affordable than ever before.
It is only the beginning! The world of presentations awaits you!

Save/export your presentation to a video file format (.mp4 or .wmv).
Save your presentation as a PowerPoint Show (.ppsx) file. (A PowerPoint Show appears full-screen in Slide Show, ready to view immediately.)
Save as a video file
After you've created your slides and recorded any timing and narrations and laser pointer gestures that you want to include, you're ready to create a video file.
On the File menu, select Save to ensure all your recent work has been saved in PowerPoint presentation format (.pptx).
Click File > Export > Create a Video . (Or, on the Recording tab of the ribbon, click Export to Video .)
In the first drop-down box under the Create a Video heading, select the video quality you want, which pertains to the resolution of the finished video. The higher the video quality, the larger the file size. (You may want to test them to determine which one meets your needs.)
* The Ultra HD (4K) option is only available if you're using Windows 10.
The second drop-down box under the Create a Video heading tells whether your presentation includes narration and timings. (You may switch this setting if you like.)
If you haven't recorded timed narration, by default the value is Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narrations .
The default time spent on each slide is 5 seconds. You can change that timing in the Seconds to spend on each slide box. To the right of the box, click the up arrow to increase the duration, or click the down arrow to decrease the duration.
If you have recorded a timed narration, by default the value is Use Recorded Timings and Narrations .
Click Create Video .
In the File name box, enter a file name for the video, browse for the folder that will contain this file, and then click Save .
In the Save as type box, choose either MPEG-4 Video or Windows Media Video .
You can track the progress of the video creation by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your screen. The video creation process can take up to several hours depending on the length of the video and the complexity of the presentation.
Tip: For a long video, you can set it up to be created overnight. That way, it’ll be ready for you the following morning.
To play your newly-created video, go to the designated folder location, and then double-click the file.
Save as a PowerPoint Show
When someone opens a PowerPoint Show file, it appears full-screen in Slide Show, rather than in edit mode. The viewer begins watching the presentation immediately.
On the File menu, select Save As .
Choose the folder location where you want to store your PowerPoint Show file.
In the Save as type box, choose PowerPoint Show (*.ppsx) .
Select Save .
Why turn your presentation into a video?
When you want to give a high-fidelity version of your presentation to colleagues or customers (either as an e-mail attachment, published to the web, on a CD or DVD), save it and let it play as a video.
You can save your presentation as either an MPEG-4 video file (.mp4) or a .wmv file. Both formats are widely supported and can be streamed over the internet.
Some tips to remember when recording your presentation as a video:
You can record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements in your video.
You can control the size of the multimedia file and the quality of your video.
You can include animations and transitions in your movie.
Viewers do not need to have PowerPoint installed on their computers to watch it.
If your presentation contains an embedded video, the video will play correctly without your needing to control it.
Depending on the content of your presentation, creating a video may take some time. Lengthy presentations and presentations with animations, transitions, and media content will likely take longer to create. Fortunately, you can continue to use PowerPoint while the video is being created
What parts of a presentation won't be included in a video?
The following items won't be included in a video that you create using PowerPoint:
Media inserted in previous versions of PowerPoint. To include these, you can convert or upgrade the media object.
For example, if you inserted the media using PowerPoint 2007, it will be linked and it will play in the presentation. However, when you export the file as a video, the linked media will be dropped. You can convert the file to the new file format (click the File tab, and under Info , click Convert ), or you can right-click the media object and then click to upgrade; it will embed the file and export it correctly.
QuickTime media (unless you have a third-party QuickTime codec named ffdShow installed and you have optimized for compatibility)
What to do with your video after creating it
After you create a video, you can share it with others by using the following methods:
Email your presentation to others
Save to a file share or other location
Upload it to your organization's Microsoft Stream video-sharing site , as described in the next section, "Save to a video-sharing site."
Save to the Microsoft video-sharing site
After you've created the video file, you can upload it to a video-sharing site. Microsoft Stream is an enterprise video service where people in an organization can upload, view, and share videos. Microsoft 365 business or education subscribers have access to this service from within PowerPoint for Microsoft 365.
Select File > Export , and then select Publish to Microsoft Stream .
Type a title and a description for the video.
Set other options, including whether you want others in your organization to have permission to see the video:
Select the Publish button.
The upload process can take several minutes, depending on the length of the video. A status bar at the bottom of the PowerPoint window tracks the progress, and PowerPoint shows a message when the upload is finished:
Click the message to go directly to the video playback page on Microsoft Stream.
For more information about this service, begin reading with What is Microsoft Stream? It includes information about Office 365 Video vs. Microsoft Stream.
1 The Ultra HD (4K) option is only available if you're using Windows 10. 2 In PowerPoint 2016, the Ultra HD (4K) option isn't available in the Volume License edition.
When someone opens a PowerPoint Show file, it appears full-screen in Slide Show, rather than in edit mode. The viewer begins watching the presentation immediately.
Burn your presentation to a disc
Click File > Export > Create a Video .
PowerPoint 2013 and newer versions can save your presentation as either an MPEG-4 video file (.mp4) or a .wmv file. Both formats are widely supported and can be streamed over the internet.
Format : .mp4
Maximum resolution : 1280×720
On the File menu, click Save & Send .
Under Save & Send , click Create a video .
To display all video quality and size options, under Create a video , click the Computer & HD Displays down arrow.
Choose one of these video quality options. (You may want to test them to determine which meets your needs.)
Click the Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narrations down arrow, and then do one of the following:
If you didn't record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements , click Don't Use Recorded Timings and Narration .
The default time spent on each slide is set to 5 seconds. To change that, to the right of Seconds to spend on each slide , click the up arrow to increase, or the down arrow to decrease the seconds.
If you recorded and timed narration and pointer movements , click Use Recorded Timings and Narrations .
PowerPoint 2010 saves your presentation as a Windows Media Video (.wmv) file. (If you do not want to use the .wmv file format, you can use a third-party utility to convert your file to another format, such as .avi or .mov.)

When you need to give a big presentation, PowerPoint is the most user-friendly tool to build a slide deck. A well-made PowerPoint captures the audience's attention and reinforces ideas. Learning how to animate slides in PowerPoint will level up the style.
Few apps make it as easy as PowerPoint to add animations to your slides. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to add animations in Microsoft PowerPoint. You'll see that animation PowerPoint templates are the best way to kickstart your next presentation design.
In this short video, you'll watch me add animations to a PowerPoint presentation. I'll cover basic animations and sequencing them so that items appear in the order you want. Check out the video below to watch and learn how to get animation in PowerPoint.
Keep going for a written version of these skills and some extra tips for mastering how to animate slide in PowerPoint.

Animations are visual effects for the objects in your PowerPoint presentation. Animations bring objects like text, images, or charts on or off your slide.
Microsoft calls these entrances and exits. An entrance is an animation that brings something onto the slide. An exit moves an object off the slide. Use an animation to make an object enter or exit your slide (or even move it between spots on a slide.)
My recommendation is to completely build out your presentation first and add animations later. Focus on content and the ideas you want to convey. Add the sizzle later in the form of well-timed animations.
Read on to learn more about how to customize animations and work quickly with PowerPoint templates.
It's easy to add an animation to your PowerPoint presentation. After you've finished inputting all your content into a PowerPoint file, begin adding your animations:
- Click on an object to select it on any slide. This could be an image, chart, or block of text.
- Now, find the Animations tab on the ribbon.
- Find the Animation menu, which has star icons on it. Each one represents an animation effect.
- Click on one of the animation effects to add it to the selected object. In this example, I'm going to click on Fade so that the text will fade in.
You'll know that a slide contains animation when a small orange box with a number appears on the slide. Preview your animations by clicking on the Preview button on the far-left side of the Animation tab in PowerPoint.
Your animation will play when you switch to Slide Show mode. Each time you click the mouse button or press a button on a presentation "clicker," the slide will advance. This could mean going on to the next slide or animating in the next slide object.
That's it! You've added your first animation to PowerPoint. Practice your skill by adding it to another element, such as a chart or image. Let's look at other animation styles.
PowerPoint has a great variety of styles to animate objects on your slides with. With the animation presets, you can quickly bring an object on or off a slide with one click.
On the Animations tab of the ribbon, there are many one-click styles to apply to an image. Scroll down in this menu to view them. Or click the small double arrow to the lower right to view them all at once.
See the screenshot below for the full list of animations:
There's a large list of animations to choose from. Here's a simple key to understand how they work:
- Animations with green icons will cause objects to enter the slide.
- Animations with yellow icons will animate on the slide in some way, such as spinning or pulsing (good for drawing attention to specific objects).
- Animations with red icons will cause objects to exit the slide.
The names of the slide are also good clues for understanding what the animations will do. "Fly out" will cause an object to exit the PowerPoint slide, while "Float In" is indicative of an object coming onto the slide.
Spend time trying out the various PowerPoint animation effects. Click on each one and PowerPoint will play a short preview, right on the slide.
So far, we've animated a single object onto our PowerPoint slide. You know how to get a single animation in PowerPoint, but now, let's add our second!
To add a second animation to a slide, simply select another object. Then, click on one of the animations from the menu again.
Once you add a second animation to a slide, you'll notice that each animated object has a small number in a box next to it. That number indicates the order the objects will animate in. A box with a " 1 " will be animated first, and a "2" will be animated after it.
What if you want to change the order of our animations? Read on to find out about sequencing the animations the slide.
You’ve just learned how to animate slides in PowerPoint. With an array of effects added, you’ve built an animated slide that’s ready to share!
But first, you may want to change the sequence of the animations. In other words, you want to adjust the order in which they appear.
In this example, I want the text box reading “Global Growth” to fly in first. Then, I want it to be followed by the image of the factory on the right. Fortunately, this is easy to do with Microsoft PowerPoint. To start, be sure you’re working on the Animations tab on the ribbon. Then, click on the button labeled Animation Pane.
You’ll see a sidebar menu open on the right side of your PowerPoint window. This is the Animation Pane. Think of it as the control center for animations in PowerPoint. It’s ready to help you re-sequence animations fast.
Right now, the photo shows a “1” beside it. This indicates that it comes onto the slide first. The “Global Growth” text comes in second, noted by the number “2” next to it.
On the Animation Pane , all that we need to do is drag and drop to re-sequence the animations. If I want the text to come in first, I'll move it up in the list of my animations. Simply click and drag on its title in the Animation Pane to move it into a new position.
Notice that the number beside the text box animation changes from a “2” to a “1”. This indicates that it is now the first animated object on the slide.
When you're managing many objects on a single slide, the Animation Pane is helpful. It can help you visualize what order that objects are entering or leaving your PowerPoint slide. Plus, you can quickly reorder them by dragging and dropping.
It’s key to learn how to get animation in PowerPoint that fits your needs. For example, it’s a great idea to alter the duration and triggers for animations. Add animation to PowerPoint in these cases for an attention-getter.
By default, PowerPoint assigns standard values to various types of animation. Often, this is the perfect timing. But in other cases, you might want to make adjustments.
Similarly, you can change what triggers an animation. By default, animations start On Click. This means that your cursor or clicker causes each animation to start.
Again, it’s useful, but it also means that you have to start each animation manually. If you’ve sequenced animations, you may want them to automatically start one after the other.
To make these changes, select an animated object and return to the Animations tab. On the right side, you’ll see the Timing section. Here, you can change the starting trigger by opening the Start dropdown. Duration and delay settings can be adjusted using the menus below.
Here's the thing: presentations aren't about animations or how fancy your slides are, it's about holding your audience's attention.
This quote from one of my favorite movies is a great way to think about using animations:
"Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could , they didn’t stop to think if they should. " - Jurassic Park
Just because you can add animations, doesn't mean you should. Are they improving your presentation, or distracting your audience from your message?
Using too many animations is distracting. When you've got objects flying in and out of the slide, you'll lose the attention from your audience.
Here are four key principles for applying animations in PowerPoint tastefully:
- Keep objects off screen until you're ready to talk about them.
- If you put everything on the slide at once, your audience will stop paying attention to what you're saying and focus on the text.
- Use simple transitions such as Appear or Fade to keep your slides simple and clean.
- Limit your animations to one or two per slide to maintain simplicity.
What is the definition of animation in Microsoft PowerPoint that goes too far? Anytime the animation supersedes the content, it's time to rethink things.
Play the presentation to yourself before presenting it. If you feel like you've got too many animations on your slide, consider removing some of them.
If you're learning how to animate slides in PowerPoint, it helps to have a few top tips. Let's walk through five of our favorite fast facts that show you how to get animation in PowerPoint.
1. Animate Your Data
More than ever, PowerPoint presentations are full of data visuals that tell stories. Audiences love charts that help them understand your message, visually.
Why not add animations to your data? With the help of our quick screencast below, you can learn to do just that.
2. Survey Your PowerPoint Animations Before Starting
Many of the recommended templates include more than one PowerPoint animation. It always helps to survey your slides by reviewing all the active animations before you start.
Click on Animations on PowerPoint's ribbon. Instantly, you'll see numbered icons on each object that features an animation. A quick review like this will help you avoid deleting any key objects.
3. Create an Animated Photo Slideshow
One of the most popular formats for a presentation is as a slideshow. And every slideshow is better with animations that smoothly shift from one slide to the next.
Use our article below to create a photo slideshow in PowerPoint. Many of these templates include PowerPoint animations to segue the images.
4. Use Slide Transitions
This tutorial doesn't cover transitions, a form of animation that helps shift between two slides. Use those transitions as an animation to bring the focus back to the slide.
Learn how to add animation in PowerPoint for slide changes with transitions. Check out our quick screencast that teaches you how to add transitions in just 60 seconds:
5. Use Fewer Animations
We've already mentioned this tip above, but its importance bears repeating. To learn how to get animation in PowerPoint to work effectively, consider that you might be overdoing it.
Everything we do as presenters should consider the audience. Too many animations take away from the content and are more harmful than helpful. Always challenge yourself to delete half the animations you initially include to bring tight focus.
