Default Animation across multiple slides - please help

Hi,

Is it possible to have an animation in PowerPoint 2010 which runs over multiple slides? I can place an animation in the slide master, but this just resets when you go to the next slide.

It is possible to have sound playing over several slides, but I canít find a way of doing this for a custom animation.



What Iíd like to do is have a countdown timer running over the whole presentation.

Thanks for your help.

Best wishes,

jpscience

There's no way to continue an animation across slides. If you are able to use a screen recorder to record the timer as a small video you could make it play across slides.

Hi,
Many thanks for your reply. The video playing over multiple slides would be fine as a solution. I've recorded a video and inserted it on a page. I'm not sure how to get it to play over multiple slides. Please would you tell me how this is done. Should I put it on the slide master?
Best wishes,
jpscience

Hi,
I've just sorted it. A search for 'How to play a video across multiple slides in PowerPoint 2010' gave me the instructions. Many thanks for your help. The timer is working fine now.
