Default Loop several animations on one slide


Hello all. I'm trying to loop several animations on one slide. I have the slide sectioned into four parts and each part has 3 or 4 images that are stacked - the top image fades away to reveal the one below it, then that one later fades to reveal the 3rd below, etc. I've set the last image to match the first image so that the animation can reset without a harsh cut.

This same effect is repeated with different photos in each quarter of the page. I can get everything to work once, but I would like the animations to loop continuously until I click through to the next slide. Is there some way to get them all to repeat?

I'm fairly tech savvy but I've never tried to do anything advanced with PowerPoint, and I have no experience at all with scripting.

Thanks for any help!!

*Edit - I'm not sure if I'm using Office 2016 - mine says Office 365, so I'm assuming I have the most current version?

You could insert an 'inaudible' audio file*, set that to Loop, and trigger your animations to bookmarks on the audio file.

*to make this, you can use 'Record Audio' without saying anything

Judith - that's a great idea, thanks. If I do this, would I be able to just click once - in the middle of the audio file - to get to the next slide? Or would I have to stop the audio first and then click through?

Can't test right now but I guess you can click to the next slide any time.
If that's not the case, you could consider adding a visible or invisible shape that hyperlinks to the next slide.

And since I don't like taking credit for someone else's great ideas - this is where I found it a while ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...animation+sets

Great method. I first saw this demo'd by Jamie Garroch and then the Presentation summit in San Diego an improved version by Tom Howell of Synapsis.

We are currently writing an AddIn that automatically adds the silent music and the triggers.
