PowerPoint’s 3D experiences get more enhanced all the time. To begin with, the only way you could animate 3D models was by using the Morph transition effect. Next, you could use the 3D animations. But now, with the new embedded 3D animations feature, you no longer even need to animate, because these new 3D models are already pre-animated!

Why Don’t I See The Embedded 3D Animations Feature?

You must be using an Office 365 subscriber version of PowerPoint to access this feature. Also, new features such as this one percolate to all installations of Office 365 in a phased manner. Insider and Monthly Channel versions get these features first, followed by most other users. If you work in a large organization, your system administrator may prevent these updated features from being installed, even if you use an Office 365 subscription version.

Follow these steps to explore the new embedded 3D animations:

  1. Launch PowerPoint, and insert a new slide, or use an existing one. It’s best to choose a slide layout such as Blank or Title Only, so that you have ample slide space. Of course, this is optional.
  2. Change Layout to Title Only

You can do so much more with these 3D models. You can turn off the embedded animations, or explore alternative embedded animations. We will explore these fascinating options in another post soon.
