P. 463 Review and discuss

1.      Transitions are when a slide moves from one slide to the next and they can be done in special ways to transition in a more expressive way. Animations are the ways that a element of a slide will be displayed on the screen, the options for these depend on the type of element such as text, pictures, or bullet points.

2.      Options let you customize how the transition will be displayed, such as from the top, left, right or bottom.

3.      This setting changes the movement of the slide and any animations that are used.

4.      It could be used to make it look like an image is water in a whirlpool or going down a drain.

5.      The styles are types of animations that can determine how the animation will look, the animation gives you all the options to use for animations, and the animation pane lets you change the settings of the animations to customize it however you want.

6.      Very simple animations should be used in formal situations because it can distract the audience and take away from the point you are trying to make with the presentation.

7.      Motion paths can be created by selecting the object, clicking on the animation tab, selecting the animation, and selecting a motion path to create the movement.

8.      Sounds should only be used when it adds to the presentation. Inserting an mp3 file would be one way of adding sound to a presentation.

9.      Fair use does not apply to business. School presentations are allowed up to 30 seconds of music. If more is needed, then royalty free music should be used. Also if the music is paid for and its not being used commercially then it should be fine to be used for more than the 30 second limit, if it isnít then many artists just want to be recognized somewhere in the file.

10.   It can be used to create animated characters to help navigate through webpages and applications. Clippy in Microsoft word was an example of this and probably the only one that I remember seeing.
