Use custom animation in PowerPoint to rent credits
Using animation to create running titles, such as the one in the animated GIF accompanying this article, will give your PowerPoint presentation a professional look and help you appreciate the people who helped you create your presentation.
Add continuous credit text to a new slide
Open a new blank slide at the last position of your presentation. Add a text box to a slide or use a text box on a template. Set the alignment to the center of the text using the tab House on the tape. Type a title for your presentation or a comment, such as “Special thanks to the following people” in the box.
Enter the name and any other relevant information for each person in the rolling credits in the text box. Press key Input three times between each item in the list.
As you enter names, the text box remains the same size, but the text shrinks and may extend beyond the text box. Do not worry. You will be changing the size of the names shortly.
Add a closing statement after the list of names, such as “End” or another closing comment.
Increase the number of role credits
After entering all the titles, drag the mouse pointer to select all the text in the text field or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+A on pc or Command+A on mac
Change the font size for sliding credits to 32 in the tab House on the tape. The text box may extend beyond the bottom of the slide.
Center the text on the slide if it isn’t already centered.
Change the font if you want to use a different font.
