Adding a motion effect to a decoration

Because we are making a movie slideshow, it makes sense that decorations can be given movement.

To add motion effects to a decoration, select the slide in the storyboard panel and then select the 'Text & Images' tab on the left. Then left click the 'Select motion effects' button to bring up the following window.

The top left list shows all the decorations which are contained within the slide. To select a decoration, select it in the top left list.

Each decoration can be given two types of motion effect:- 'Motion in effect' and 'Motion out effect'.

As the name suggests, the 'Motion in effect' is setting the type of motion the decoration does when it is first shown. Or another way of considering it, is the motion applied to it at the start to make it move to it's normal position within the slide.

In the above example it was given the 'MoveRightMore' effect. This will move the text, from far off the screen on the left, in a right motion, to it's normal position within the slide.

The time for each motion effect is also shown, in this case this motion takes 1 second.

Similarly, the 'Motion out effect' will move the text down at the end. This is because it was given then 'MoveInDown' effect. This effect will also take 1 second.

Note:Some 'Motion in effects' are set to last the same length of time as the decoration is shown for. In these cases a motion out effect is not used.

Note: When creating a slide from a pre-design template, a decoration may be give a motion effect which is not from the PhotoVidShow motion effects list. In this case it will be shown as having 'Slide defined movement'. Re-select this if for any reason you change the motion effect and want to set it back to the template default.

Tip:If you have 'Pan/zoom on all' selected for this slide, you will be shown an addition decoration called 'All grouped'. This allows you to set the motion effect on all the decorations grouped together i.e. as if it was just one big image.

Tip:Not all motion effects have actual movement, i.e. some just deal with fading the decoration in or out.
