Everybody loves a pat on the back, especially after contributing to a great project. When you end your next PowerPoint presentation, don't just list your sources, give thanks to those who helped you in your research by epicly animating their names, movie credit style!
This post will guide you through the steps of creating an animated movie credit style thank you list using PowerPoint 2013. Let's get started!
First, create a new slide in PowerPoint with a Title and Content layout. In the title, enter something like "Thanks!" Next, enter the names of the individuals who contributed to your presentation. You'll also want to double space these names.
The next step is to get rid of the bullet points that are attached to the names. You will do this by highlighting all of the names and selecting the Bullets button in the Paragraph group at the top of the screen. Now, center both the title and text of the slide.
After this is complete you can change the look of the slide to resemble movie credits.
Now that we have our slide looking good, the next step is to add some animation.
All that there is left to do is to go back to the Animation Pane, collapse the names by clicking the upward arrow button highlighted in gray. Select the Content Place... and enter in a two-second delay by following the same steps we did for the Title.
You are now ready to watch the movie credits you've created! Press F5 to view your work!
Using this method of public recognition will go a long way in thanking and maintaining a relationship with the people that helped you put your presentation together.
