14: Stroke Animation

  1. Download the exercise material (click here), and extract it.
  2. Insert the images into an empty PowerPoint slide.
  3. Align the silhouettes on top of each other to the left with the stroke image on top.
  4. Align the carotid cutout with the silhouettes using the middle alignment option.
  5. Draw a circle around the bifurcation image, matching the location depicted in the carotid cutout. Draw two lines connecting the small circle just drawn with the carotid cutout.
  6. Make the outline of the circle and lines just drawn dotted and group the circle + lines together.
  7. Draw two black circles representing the thrombi, one on the carotid cutout, just above the hole in the black line covering the lipid lesion, and one immediately above the small dotted circle on the silhouette.
  8. Now for the animation: Apply wipe (vifte) to the group of dotted circle and lines
  9. Apply fade in to the carotid cutout and make it appear “After previous”.
  10. Apply fade in to the thrombus to the right, inside the carotid cutout. Draw a freehand motion path from the thrombus to the top of the carotid cutout. Disable soft start+end.
  11. Apply a “disappear” animation to the thrombus using the “add animation” button and make it happen “After previous”.
  12. Make the thrombus on the silhouette appear, using a fade-in animation “After previous”. 
  13. Draw a freehand motion path from it’s original position to the end of the artery in the middle of the brain. Disable soft start + end. Make it start “After previous”.
  14. Click the stroke silhouette and fade it in “After previous”.
