I'm using GIMP to try to create falling snow. The 1st snow image has snow covering the image, the 2nd has the snow moved down 12.5 pixels, the 3rd has the snow moved down another 12.5 pixels, etc. until I...


How are you playing it? are you trying to create an animated gif?

If so, do the following:-

Create a file, with each of your snow images as layers, then

File-> Save As.

Name the image, then go to "Select File Type."

Make it a .gif image, and then click save.

GIMP gives you the option of flattening it or creating an animated gif. Click the button that says "Save as Animation", and then click export.

Then you get to alter a few more variables in the next dialog box (- you can set the frame rate (a higher number makes the animation go faster) )

Then once saved, load it up in an internet browser, and it should work.

Once you've saved you're gif image, open it up in your image viewer. If your normal image viewer doesn't show the animation, try opening it in Firefox or Internet Explorer. You can do this by right clicking on the file, and selecting "Open With." Then choose your internet browser, and you're all set!

I want to use the power point with animation for presentations.


If you are using MS Office 2007, then I assume you are already familiar with the ribbons and tabs included. To use animations for your presentations, you can apply for one or all slides. Also you apply animation to certain objects on a specific slide.

On the top, you will find the "Animations" tab. You will find pre-set transitions for the slide.

You can apply to a particular slide, or to all slides by click on "Apply to all" button found next to the transitions on the right-side. You can also select the speed and sound of the transition. On the left-side of the pre-set transitions, you will see the "Animations" settings group.

If you click, for example a text box, The "Animate" feature will be enabled and you can select the animation you want, i.e. fade, wipe, fly in, etc.

I have added a snapshot of the drawing tool at the end of this post.

Rank, if you found this solution helpful. If you need more information.

How to insert video in the PowerPoint 2003?


Insert a movie and play it automatically
In PowerPoint 2003, you can run your movies full screen. This is a very excellent feature.
  • On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then click Movie from File.
  • Click the video you want to use and then click OK.
  • Tips: Always put the movie in the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation. If you later move the PowerPoint presentation to another computer, copy the movie too. Keeping your movie in the same folder as your presentation ensures the link will still work. However, you should always test the movie on a new machine just to be certain. Re-insert the movie, if necessary.
  • After you click OK, you' are promoted with a message asking how you want the movie to start in the slide show.

  • 44fc8c6.gif

    I recommend choosing Automatically even if you want the movie to play when clicked- I will talk about how to set this part too. (If you choose when clicked you have to click the black box to start the movie. Because I don't like to show the black box on the slide, I do this a little differently.)

  • You should now have a small rectangle sitting on your slide.
    d62d46e.gif

  • Insert a movie using a file on your computer or in another location, such as a server.
  • The movie appears as a still frame on your slide.
  • The trick I use is to move that rectangle off the slide, so it is sitting next to it, but not on it. You can size it down if you like. Click the movie (that is, the rectangle) and then drag it off the slide.
    b2702b0.gif

    Play the movie full screen
  • Right-click the movie object (the small rectangle) and on the shortcut menu, click Edit Movie Object.
  • The Movie Options dialog box appears. Under Display Options, select the Zoom to full screen check box, and then click OK.
    4ceb182.gif
  • If you want your movie to play automatically when you advance to this slide, you can stop here.
Test this now to see how it workd by starting the slide show. (On the Slide Show menu, click View Show.) Advance to the slide with the movie, (best if you have the title of the movie on it). Within a couple of seconds, the movie starts to play full screen. When the movie finishes, you return to the same slide (but no unsightly box appears). Click to advance to your next slide.

Add an On Click effect to start the movie
If you prefer, you can click to start the movie. This requires one more step, setting an On Click animation effect.
1. On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation. The Custom Animation task pane appears on the right side of the PowerPoint window.

2. Click the movie object (the rectangle) to select it.

3. In the Custom Animation task pane, click Add Effect, point to Entrance and then click Appear.
74b0140.gif
You have added an On Click effect. The animation effect you added is the one with the Green star next to it and a gray rectangle around it. If it doesn't have a gray rectangle, click it to select it. Your Custom Animation task pane should look like the picture below (except with the name of your movie in the list).

c6baa5b.gif
4. The last step is to move that animation up to the top of the effects list.
To do this, make sure the animation effect is selected, and then click the Up Re-order arrow at the bottom of the Custom Animation task pane. Or simply click and drag the animation effect to the top of the effects list.

5. Your effects list should now look like this:
b128f39.gif

6. You are done. Test this to make sure it works by starting the slide show.
(On the Slide Show menu, click View Show.) When you advance to the slide with the movie, you should not see the movie. When you click the slide, the movie zooms to full screen and plays. When it finishes playing, you are returned to the same slide. Click to advance to the next slide.

How to play the text animation with out clicking


AVI video file of animation
To create this animtion, follow these steps:
  1. Insert a text box from the Drawing toolbar (in PowerPoint 2007, go to Insert tab> Text Box), and type your text. Center justify itthe text by clicking Center on the Formatting toolbar. (In PowerPoint 2007, right-click the text box and choose Center from the mini toolbar.)
  2. Click the text box's outline and copy it to the Clipboard. Paste it two times onto the slide.
  3. Drag the three text boxes apart from each other. Eventually, you'll place them on top of each other, but it's much easier to select them when they're separated. Notice that I have a plain white slide and one word.
  4. Change the properties of the text to create variations. I used 96, 72, and 48 point text, with light gray, dark gray, and black colors. Of course, if you want a different effect, you can do something different.
pptip_text_anim-2.jpg
  1. Choose Slide Show > Custom Animation (in PowerPoint 2007, Animations tab> Custom Animation) to display the Custom Animation task pane.
  2. Select the first text box and choose Add Effect> Entrance> Fade. (If you don't see the Fade animation, click More Effects to find it.) Set the Speed to fast. Leave the Start as On Click (the default).
  3. Select the second text box and choose Add Effect> Entrance> Fade. Again set the Speed to fast, but this time set the Start to After Previous.
  4. As soon as the second text box comes in, you want the first one to fade out. So select the first text box again, and choose Add Effect> Exit> Fade. (You may need to choose More Effects to find it.) Set the Speed to Very Fast and the Start to After Previous. (I discovered by trial and error that I wanted the Speed set to Very Fast; otherwise, you wait too long for the third text box to come in.)
  5. Next, you want the third text box to fade in so select it and choose Add Effect> Entrance> Fade. Set the Start to After Previous and the Speed to Very Fast.
  6. Finally, you want the second text box to fade out, leaving just the third text box. Select it, and choose Add Effect> Exit> Fade. Set the Start to After Previous and the Speed to Fast.
Note: You can always change the order of your animations by selecting an item in the Custom Animation task pane and dragging it to a new location or using the Re-order buttons at the bottom.
  1. Save your work and test the animation to see what it looks like. Either go into slide show view or click the Play button in the task pane.
  2. To center the three text boxes on top of each other, select all three text boxes. From the Draw toolbar, choose Draw> Align or Distribute> Relative to Slide. (In PowerPoint 2007, choose Format tab> Arrange group> Align drop-down list> Align to Slide.)
  3. Now choose Draw> Align or Distribute> Align Center. (In PowerPoint 2007, choose Format tab> Arrange group> Align drop-down list> Align Center.)
  4. Choose Draw> Align or Distribute> Align Middle. (In PowerPoint 2007, choose Format tab> Arrange group> Align drop-down list> Align Middle.)
Save and try out your animation!
Fade in variations of text, one on top of the other plus magnify
You can add another animation to your objects to increase the intensity of the animation. For example, try adding a Magnify entrance effect to all three text boxes. Set the speed the same as the Fade In animation and place the animation in the task pane right after the Fade In. Set the Start to With Previous. You can see how it looks.
AVI video of both animations
Typewriter text
You can make text appear letter by letter; to add to the effect, you can add a typewriter sound. You can see the animation here. Sorry, I couldn't include the sound.
AVI video of typewriter text.
Follow these steps:
  1. Add a text box from the Drawing toolbar (in PowerPoint 2007, go to Insert tab> Text Box), and type the text.
  2. Select the text box.
  3. On the Custom Animation task pane, choose Add Effect > Entrance > Appear.
  4. Click the animation item in the task pane. Click the down arrow and choose Effect Options.
  5. On the Effect tab, choose By Letter from the Animate Text drop-down list.
  6. Set the delay between letters. I chose 0.3 seconds.
  7. From the Sound drop-down list, choose Typewriter and click OK.
pptip_text_anim-4.jpg
Try the animation. I had the following problem -- there was no clicking sound for the last letter. That might not bother you, but it bothered me. I solved the problem by adding another letter at the end of the word and making it the same color as the background (so that it was invisible). This worked!

Audio out of sync


Captivate creates a single filestream of each audio clip you add your project. As you make changes to the audio, such as replace the audio on a given slide with a different audio clip, Captivate sometimes ignores your new clip and does not embed or include it in the main audio stream. I experienced many headaches with this issue until I stumbled on a fix that works for pretty much all Captivate audio problems.


Open your original Captivate file that you are experiencing audio problems with. Then in a separate Captivate session, create a new BLANK project with the same screen size settings as your original Captivate file. One by one copy the files from your original into the new blank project. Afterwards you may have to adjust some of your objects on your timeline for a slide or two. Uusually I don't have to do this step unless I have several clickbox items. Once you have copied and adjusted all your slides, save the file and publish. This resolves your audio problems.


Why does this work? I suspect that it creates an entirely new main audio filestream as you copy and past the individual slides for the new Captivate file. I stimbled across this after trying to fix my audio problems by copying all the slides from my original and pasting into a new blank project in one operation. That did not work, then I thought of trying to eliminate the old main audio filestream by this method. Afterwards I repeated this action on all my Captivate projects with audio problems and it fixed all of them.

This would suggest the card may be faulty. If you have a backup of the info on the card, try formatting the card and restoring the data.
