How to apply different types of slide transitions in Zoho Show User Guide

Apply Slide Transitions

A slide transition is the animation that occurs when one slide moves, or "transitions," to another in a slideshow. These make your slides look like 3D cubes, spin off the screen, or bounce up and down as you move from slide to slide in your presentation. Each transition on Zoho Show has its own aesthetic effect. With slide transitions, you can project professionalism and sophistication, and also keep your audience engaged until the end of your presentation. 

Different Types of Transition

There are three categories of transition effects available under ANIMATE mode in the right pane:

  1. Serene transitions builds up a calm/quiet effect onto the slide and then has a  slow end. These effects add a smooth and professional look to your presentation.  
    For example, 
    Fade effect dissolves the content on the slide.

  2. Flare transitions exhibits the slide as shown on movie or video screens. These effects work great for picture or media files in your presentation. 
    For example,
    Fall effect - Current slide falls away, leaving the next slide in its place.
    Pivot effect - Next slide rotates in from the corner of the previous slide.

  3. Zing transitions adds some dynamic motion to reveal the upcoming slide. These effects brings liveliness, fun and jingles to your concepts. 
    For example, 
    Cover - Layers each new slide over the previous slide, as though they are pages  in a book.
    Cube - Rotates the current slide like a cube and presents the next slide on  another face of the cube. 

    Transition options

Apply Transition to Slide

  1. Select the slide you'd like to apply the transition to, click ANIMATE mode in the right pane, and then click Add Transition. You will see a list of transition effects under the dropdown menu.

    Add Transition

  2. Select the type of transition effect you want to apply: Serene, Flare, and Zing. 
    For example, if you want your slide to make an subtle entry, choose the desired transition effect from the Serene category.

    Add and Change transition

    Similarly, you can apply 
    Flare and Zing transitions to your slide by choosing the desired effects from the list.

  3.  After you apply a slide transition, you can perform the following functions within the ANIMATE mode: 
  • Preview the transition - Click the Preview  button at top right corner to see a live preview of the transitions as you add or change them on the slide. This will give you an idea of how the chosen effect will look during the slideshow.

  • Play the transition - Click the Play button  to see how the effect will appear during the slide show. By default, all the transitions will play as you move from one slide to the next.

  • Change to a different transition - Click Change Transition and choose the new effect you want to apply from the dropdown menu.

    Change Transition
If you wish to apply the same transition to all of the slides in your presentation, click Apply to All Slides.
