The PowerPoint feature allows you to animate smooth movement from one slide to the other. You can apply it to slides to create the animation-type appearance in a wide range of things—text, shapes, pictures, SmartArt, WordArt, and charts.

To use the Morph transition effectively, you’ll require two slides with at least one object in common. The easiest way to enable this is to duplicate the slide and then move the object on the second slide to a different place.

Alternatively, you can copy and paste the object from one slide and add it to the next. Then, apply the Morph transition to the second slide.

Initially, you will not find the ‘Morph’ transition in the ribbon menu but once you ‘Duplicate’ a slide, the feature becomes clearly visible under ‘Ribbon’ menu.

Now, to see the feature in action, do the following:

In the Thumbnail pane on the left side, click the slide that you want to apply a transition to. Remember, it should be the other slide to which you just added the object, picture to enable the morph transition.

When done, move to the ‘Transitions’ tab, look for Morph option and when found, select it.

Now, select Transitions and from the ‘Effect Options’ drop-down menu, choose the object for which you’d like the Morph transition to work.

Finally, click Preview to see the Morph transition in action.
