What is an Animation?

By

Definition: In PowerPoint, OpenOffice Impress and other presentation software, animations are visual effects applied to individual items on the slide such as graphics, titles or bullet points. Animations are different than transitions, which are the movements of the whole slide.
Examples:
The bullet points in Mary's PowerPoint presentation had animations applied so that they entered the screen from the right side.
