Morph Transition in PowerPoint 2016

Morph Transition

A new transition has arrived in PowerPoint 2016 named Morph. With this transition, we can make animations, transitions and objects to be moved across the Slides in our Presentation. When we apply the Morph Transition on Slides we create the appearance of movement. To find out how the Morph Transition works in PowerPoint 2016 just continue reading.

For the Morph Transition to work properly, we will need first to have two Slides with at least one object in comment. In my example below, I have the Slide that I want, and then I did a right click on the selected Slide and from the drop-down menu that appeared I selected the command Duplicate Slide. This way I have two identical Slides in my Presentation. On the Duplicated Slide, I move the object (for my example Santa Clause) in to a different location on the Slide and even change the size of it. I also changed the Size of the Title and moved it to the Left corner of the Slide. If we add or delete anything on the Duplicated Slide, it will either fade in or fade out once we use the Morph Transition.

Duplicate Slide

Once I have done everything needed, I select the Transitions tab and from the area of the ribbon named Transitions To This Slide I select the arrow at the right of this area in order for the drop down menu with all the available Transitions to appear. I then select the Morph Transition from all the available ones as shown in the image below.

Transitions - Morph

Once we have applied the Morph Transition, we select the command Effect Options at the right of the Transitions To This Slide in order for the drop down menu to appear as shown below to choose how we would like the Morph Transition to work. We can select either one of the following commands:

  • Objects: By selecting it, it moves entire objects (like pictures and shapes)
  • Words: By selecting it, it moves objects and individual words (we must use the same capitalization)
  • Characters: By selecting it, it moves objects and individual letters (we must use the same capitalization)

Effect Options

That is it! We then select the Preview command at the left of the Transitions tab as shown in image below, so we can see the Morph Transition in action.


On the Duplicated Slide we can move objects around as mentioned, we can change colors, move characters around and do much more.
