If you’ve ever doubted if you were using the full potentials of PowerPoint, then watch this presentation I exported to video titled “Five Rules” included in Office PowerPoint 2010 (and the beta available today). Even if you’re already familiar with PowerPoint’s advanced animations features, it’s still quite impressive.
Designed by Duarte, a company who seems to specialize in corporate presentations (imagine making PowerPoints all day), this presentation not only provides some good insight on how to create a compelling presentation, but also showcases the powerful new DirectX-powered graphics engine in PowerPoint 2010 that’s behind the elegant animations with silky-smooth playback.
If you have PowerPoint 2010 handy, check out how the magic is created yourself by taking a look at the raw slides under “File > New > Sample templates > Five Rules”. While you’re there, open up some of the other sample presentations for some cool stuff too.
