Animations grab and keep the attention of your audience by emphasizing key points, controlling the focus of discussion, and entertaining in ways that will make your message memorable. The Syncfusion PowerPoint library allows you to add new animation effects to any element on a slide and edit animation effects in an existing PowerPoint slide. You can also control the direction, trigger, and duration of the animation effects. This support is available across all Microsoft platforms (.NET Framework, .NET Core, UWP, and Xamarin).

Animation in .NET PowerPoint

Add and edit animation effects

The Syncfusion PowerPoint library supports the following options when applying animation effects:

  • Entrance

  • Emphasis

  • Exit

  • Motion paths

Types of animation effects

Effects can make an object appear, disappear, or move. They can change an object size, position, or color. The Syncfusion PowerPoint library supports the 4 types of animation effects used in Microsoft PowerPoint:entrance, emphasis, motion path, and exit.

PowerPoint Multiple Animations

Applying multiple animations

149 animation effects are available. For a slide element, you can apply an animation effect for each animation type (entrance, emphasis, exit, and motion paths).

PowerPoint Control Over Duration

Control over duration

The speed of the animation effect is determined by the duration property. This is used to determine how long an animation effect should remain in a slideshow.

PowerPoint Trigger Customization

Trigger customization

The library allows you to trigger custom animations in one of the following actions:

  • On clicking

  • With another animation

  • After previous animation

Text Animations in .NET PowerPoint

Applying text animation

The library allows text to be animated in the following ways:

  • Apply animations to the parent shape.
  • Apply individual animation effect to a text so that the text will be animated separately from its parent shape. This is mostly used with bullets and numbering.

PowerPoint Animation Code Example

Animation effects can be easily added to shapes, images, tables, charts and SmartArt diagrams using a few simple lines of C# code as demonstrated below. Also explore our .NET PowerPoint Example that shows how to create and modify PowerPoint on different platforms.

//Create an instance for PowerPoint

using (IPresentation pptxDoc = Presentation.Create())


//Add a blank slide to Presentation

ISlide slide = pptxDoc.Slides.Add(SlideLayoutType.Blank);

//Add normal shape to slide

IShape cubeShape = slide.Shapes.AddShape(AutoShapeType.Cube, 50, 200, 300, 300);

//Access the animation sequence to create effects

ISequence sequence = slide.Timeline.MainSequence;

//Add bounce effect to the shape

IEffect bounceEffect = sequence.AddEffect(cubeShape, EffectType.Bounce, EffectSubtype.None, EffectTriggerType.OnClick);

//Save the Presentation
