    zoom animation too short

    I am using the zoom animation to make text start huge starting offscreen and zooming back towards the center of the screen. the only options I have for zoom whether it be 1, 5 or 20 seconds the text fades away way too fast to even read it. is there a way to extend the zoom and not have it disappear?

    Re: zoom animation too short

    I am not able to set something up like what you described. When I set up zoom for text, the text starts small and gets bigger until it reaches its normal size. I don't know what you mean by "text fades away" because fade is completely separate from zoom. I am not clear on how your text is disappearing.

    Also in the Ribbon you can set your animation time for any duration you want, not just 1, 5, 20.

    Please attach your file. If you don't want to attach the whole file, make a copy with just the slide having this zoom text.

    I agree, Jeff. It sounds to me as if there is more than one animation or transition at play here.

    Re: zoom animation too short

    when I click on go advanced in the reply and then manage attachments I tried to upload a powerpoint file with just the one slide and the site here is telling me it is an invalid file. I made a quick video export from powerpoint and got the same results so I cant show you what I have.


    I am using the animations/exit/zoom. What I am trying to do is have my text much larger than the viewing screen and zoom away so it appears the text is coming from the screen and moving away from the screen. if you have seen the opening to the 1984 Terminator movie that is what I am trying to accomplish. the problem I have with the exit/zoom animation is that regardless of which timing option I choose the text slowly disappears as it zooms away.

    TIP: change the file extension to .zip and try again. We can then change it back to have a look.

    Re: zoom animation too short

    If it makes a little more sense .. in this attachment I have mad 2 slides. I want to use an exit/zoom style animation that starts with the text size on slide 1 and zooms away from the screen ending in the text size in slide 2.

    hope this helps to clarify what I am trying to do.

    I appreciate the help all!

    My bad! I didn't look at the sub forum and see that this is a PowerPoint issue. You should probably disregard my post as it is meant to zoom in or out of an Excel Worksheet.

    Bad news, I am afraid - your file is reported as corrupt and Powerpoint can't repair it.

    Re: zoom animation too short

    The zoom animation you are using is an exit effect. The purpose is to zoom out until the text is gone. One way to do what you want is to make a normal-sized copy of the text that remains after the first text zooms out. It's still not quite what you're after but it's closest you're going to get.

    By the way the problem you stated does not seem to match your thread title. But if the time really is too short, just assign any time you want.
