Random Actions

We are often asked for methods of providing a random choice in PowerPoint. A dice throw, choosing a name from a list, a coin toss ....

All of these are not possible without vba code or embedded Flash etc. Both of these can cause major problems when the presentation is distibuted especially if the free viewer is used.

This Add In Solves the Problem!!

Once the Add In is installed you can produce a realistic dice throw or coin flip in your presentations. Several different coloured dice and UK and US coins are included. All animations and graphics are automatically applied. No vba in the final presentation.

To make a selection from a set of names simply produce a list of names using Notepad and the Add In does the rest (except for a 10 second adjustment to the animation).

Once you have entered a name list in NotePad you can design the look of your slide in PowerPoint - Colour of text and shapes, 2007 effects like bevel, size etc. The Add In will duplicate this for all of the animated names.

ALL of the animations will play WITHOUT the Add In and in the free viewers.

Works in 2002 -2010. In 2007 and 2010 integrates with the ribbon.

If you are a capable user of PowerPoint you can also create your own custom random animations. Some people have even used the Add In to produce animated gif style "movie animations"!
