How to Apply the Split Entrance Effect in WPS Office PowerPoint

WPS Office PowerPoint is a powerful yet easy-to-use presentation software that allows you to create professional slide decks. One of its many useful features is the ability to add animated effects to objects to make your presentations more dynamic and visually appealing.

In this article, we will show you how to apply one such effect – the split entrance animation – in just a few simple steps.

What is the Split Entrance Effect?

The split entrance effect splits an object into different parts which then enter the slide individually over a specified duration. This creates an eye-catching entrance for objects like images, shapes, text boxes or SmartArt graphics.

Some examples of split entrance effect variations are:

  • Split Vertical In
  • Split Horizontal In
  • Split Diagonal In

The different types split the object in different orientations as the name suggests.

Some key benefits of using the split entrance animation are:

  • Draws attention: The effect grabs the audience’s attention to the element as it animates onto the slide.
  • Visually appealing: It makes presentations more dynamic and interesting.
  • Emphasize points: You can use it to emphasize key points, conclusions etc.
