Office hacks: color progression animation effect production

In PPT, it is not a bad idea to add a constant cycle of color progressive animation effect to the monotonous slide. Such an animation effect can be easily created using the PA animation plug-in (Figure 1).


First, download and install the Pocket Animation PA plug-in. Create a new blank slide, set the background color, insert a rectangle shape, resize it and set it as borderless. Select the “Pocket Animation PA” tab, click “Box Version”, then it will switch to “Professional Version”. Select the rectangle, click “Animation Storm”, click “+” at “Animation List” in the pop-up window, and select “Custom Animation “; then click “+” in the “Action List” to insert a “color” behavior; select “Visibility “, click “-” to delete it (Figure 2).


Select the “Color” behavior, and in the “Color” tab on the right, check the “Show RGB format”, set the starting value to 255, 255, 255, and the end value to 0, 191, 255. Of course, you can also click on the black arrow on the right, in the open color box to select the desired color (Figure 3).


Tip: The above color values can also be set to other colors as needed.

Select “Custom Animation” in the animation list, in the “Animation Timing” tab on the right side, select “Simultaneous with previous animation” for “Trigger method”, and enter “999” for “Repeat”. In the “Animation Timing” tab on the right, select “Simultaneous” for “Trigger”, and enter “999” for “Repeat”. Click the “Refresh” button in the upper right corner of the window to finish the action setting (Figure 4).


Next, select this rectangle, hold down Ctrl and drag parallel to the right, drag to a certain distance as needed and then release the mouse, so that a rectangle is copied; then select these two rectangles, hold down Ctrl and drag parallel to the right the same distance and then release the mouse, so that two rectangles are copied; then select these four rectangles and copy them in the same way, copying more rectangles with the same spacing as needed. such as 20. Select these rectangles, choose the “Pocket Animation PA” tab, click “Time Series”, and in the pop-up window, under the “Time Delay” tab, check Select “Fixed Delay” in the “Delay” tab, select “Equal Delay” in the “Change” tab, and The “Equi-difference initial value” is set to 0, and the “Equi-difference step size” is set to 0.1 (Figure 5).


This completes the creation of the color progression animation effect.
