What is the main problem with adding special effects and animations to a PowerPoint presentation?
You may not have enough time to test the effects before your presentation and encounter technical problems.
There is no problem. Add as many animations and effects as you can fit on each slide.
You may spend so much time on adding effects that you do not prepare well enough for the speaking part of your presentation, or the effects may distract from your message.
Should you never use special effects or animations at all?
You can use special effects and animations in moderation.
You should never use special effects or animations.
You can use special effects and animations if they help people remember your message, but do not spend so much time on them that you neglect the spoken part of your presentation.
If people are impressed by your animations and special effects, does this mean your presentation is successful?
Yes, if they are still talking about it next week.
Animations and special effects are the most important part of a presentation.
Only if they remember the message behind the animation or special effect.
