How to Adjust Slide Transitions in PowerPoint 2007

I once failed to convert a PowerPoint presentation to FLV video wihtin 30 minutes. Why the smart Moyea PPT to Video Converter couldn’t figure it out? – it never took more than 10 minutes before that! Later, I found the fault is in the timing, or the transition between slides in the original presentation (MS PowerPoint 2007). Most transitions were set to 999 seconds, and there were 30 slides in total! See, that’s the real problem.

After an adjustment to the transition, the PPT to Video Converter finally managed to output a nice video in one minute.

That is why I would like to write this post, – to tell those who are blank of transition setting in a PowerPoint presentation.

Here discusses 4 situations of slide transition adjustment:

A. Change all the slide transitions in PowerPoint presentation

1. Go to the pane with the Outline and Slides tabs, and click the Slides tab.

2. On the Home tab, click a slide thumbnail.

3. On the Animations tab, in the Transition To This Slide group, click a different slide transition effect.To see more transition effects on the Quick Styles list, click the More button.

4. To re-set the slide transition speed, in the Transition To This Slide group, click the arrow next to Transition Speed, and then select the speed that you want.

5. In the Transition To This Slide group, click Apply to All.

B. Change some slide transitions in PowerPoint presentation

1. In the pane that contains the Outline and Slides tabs, click the Slides tab.

2. On the Home tab, click the thumbnail of the slide that you want to modify the slide transition for.

3. On the Animations tab, in the Transition To This Slide group, click a different slide transition effect for that slide.
To see more transition effects on the Quick Styles list, click the More button Button image.

4. To re-set the slide transition speed, in the Transition To This Slide group, click the arrow next to Transition Speed, and then select the speed that you want.

5. To change another slide transition, repeat steps 2 through 4.
