Animating Cropped Text
Logic: cool PowerPoint animation effect on individual letters
This simple animation takes advantage of converting
WordArt into an image and cropping it.
The inserted WorkArt was Cut.
Note: for PowerPoint 2013 you MUST select the text
bounding box, NOT the text or you can paste as a picture.
Paste the image again 2 times so you have three images. We can then use the crop
tools on each image.
The image is cropped three ways:
1- upwards from the bottom,
2- from top to center and bottom to center, and
3- downwards from top to bottom.
Done. You may have to
check for any gaps in the images when you bump them together to hide any of
Now to animate.
I have gone for Entrance| Swivel.
I also have a 0.5 second delay, but all animations
end together. Makes for a very powerful animated entrance!
And the example is available here.
Example 2003 version
Example 2007 version
(The 2007 version also works in 2010 and 2013).
