Slow down powerpoint transitions.

Hi,

Thanks for taking time to read my post.

I have a customer who would like to make a power point presentation which scrolls through the entire presentation at a given speed without user intervention.

I can get this to work very easily using push up transitions and setting the delay to 0.  The problem is that although I set the speed to slow this is still far too fast.

Is there a way to slow this down further or a better way to accomplish the same thing.

Thanks in advance,

Paul Cookson.

Why not set the delay to something other than 0, experiment to find which setting works best - or try the "rehearse timings option"  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint/HA100072171033.aspx

"Slow" refers to the transition speed itself. The "delay" (automatically after 00:00) is how many seconds the slide is on the screen before it transitions. 0 is very fast -- you'll want to adjust that time.

There's no way to further slow the transition itself, though. That's slow, medium or fast. Period.

You can fake it though and put your own speed on the sleight of sight transitions.  :-)

Hi,
Thanks very much for your input.  
I'm actually looking to smooth scroll the whole presentation without any pauses.  It might be 20-30 slides or much larger.  I don't want any pause between slides. But I do want time to read the slides as they pass.
Thanks again,
Paul

You can control that with timing.  In fact, you can even rehearse and record the timings:

Hi
Thanks again for your input.  The issue I have is with the speed of the transision not the gap between transisions. As I understand it the timing settings work with the gap between transisions.  I have this set to 0 and that works fine.  It's just the transision needs to be slower than option "slow".
Regards,
Paul

Then faking it by creating your own transitions is your only option at this point.

and here: http://www.pptmagic.com/articles/3Dtransitions.htm

You have complete control over the speed of the animations and hence the speed of the "transition" that you're using sleight of slide to create the illusion.

BTW, Crystal Graphics makes an add-in: http://www.crystalgraphics.com/presentations/transitions.main.asp but I'm not sure how much control you get on the speed.
