Press the "Ctrl" or "Shift" key and select 2 shapes at the same time, then click "Smooth Transition" to apply it directly. 

If you don't select two shapes, a prompt window will pop up.

How to do

  • Hold down the [Ctrl] or [Shift] key and select two shapes at the same time, then click [Smooth Transition]

  • Hold down [Shift + F5] to start slide show from current slide, or you can click Animations > Preview

[Note]: The final effect of [Smooth Transition] is related to the order that you select shapes. For example, if you select A, then select B, the effect will be A -> B by default.

 

Use of [Smooth Transition] 

[Smooth Transition] is usually applied to the following four aspects:

1/ Scale

We don’t use [Size Scaling] here, because if the proportion is distorted, the effect of the animation will be affected.

[Scale] is similar to the [Zoom] animation of PowerPoint, but it can finish the path automatically. So you don’t need to add [Path] animation manually.

For example, It can apply to the movement of the following [office staff] icon from big to small and from here to there.

2/ Rotation Transition

The current [Rotation Transition] defaults to rotate with the minimum angle within 360° between two shapes. For example:

If you want to change the character from small to big and rotate it simultaneously,

Since this 360-degree rotation is not supported at present (we might add this function later), you can manually add a [Top Spiral] animation after applying [Smooth Transition]

3/ Color Transition

Color Transition example

Steps

  • To achieve the gradual change from Black and White to Color, you can select “Black and White Picture’ and then select [Color Picture]

  • Overlap pictures: Click Format > Align, then choose [Align Center] and [Align Middle] respectively

  • Click iSlide > Animation > Smooth Transition

  • Hold down [Shift + F5] to start slide show from current slide, or you can click Animations > Preview

 

4/ Position transition

You can freely combine Position, Scale, Rotation and Color effects to get different animations.

Such as the following [Displacement + Reduction] animation
