Just experimenting with 3D models and how they can be animated in PowerPoint is exciting and fun for me, because it is new options, new rules, and new visuals. For fun I wanted to create a 3D Virtual Fly Through style animation. Things did not work how I originally intended (we are definitely limited when it comes to moving the camera view inside a 3D model in PowerPoint vs. other 3D specific software). Here is the 3D model of a maze sourced from Remix 3D.

The final presentation is 21 slides, all motion (except the first and last slides) accomplished with repositioning the 3D model, using the 3D View ball, 3D Pan & Zoom and Morph transition.

The final result is a simpler, but still amazing (pun intended!) motion graphic.
