I need to get a list of data about my PowerPoint 2013 slide show, which has animated graphics on each slide.
eg.

SlideNo | Action | Duration

Note: Duration = the total time of an individual action as I see on the animation pane timeline. eg. if it's a FadeIn then the time the FadeIn will take to complete.
If it's a series of AfterPrevious animations then the duration of each one separately.

I'd like to output this list of data as a CSV file so I can pull it into Excel.

Can I have some assistance please experts?
Thanks.

There's a file I wrote for 2007 to do a similar action here

Feel free to modify the code (as long as not for gain)

It should work in 2013 NOTE I was only interested in a small number of animation type so I haven't carefully checked that all the typenames are reported correctly but hopefully they are!

Hey JRSW, that's great. I get this output.
Slide,Shape Name,Animation Type,Duration
1,Rectangle 3,Fly In,0.5
1,Rectangle 3,Blinds,0.5
1,Smiley Face 4,Dissolve Out,0.5
1,Smiley Face 4,Motion Path,2
2,Rectangle 3,Motion Path,2

How can I add Type such as OnClick, WithPrevious, AfterPrevious?

Thanks!
