The animation for this entrance is very straight forward. There are 3 elements:

And there are just 3 animations, each an entrance animation.

1. Lens = Ascend, Fast

2. Reflection = Wipe – From Top, With Previous (but mannually adjusted to begin 9/10th of a second after the lens (set to 0.9), and Fast

3. Lens Flair = Fade, With Previous, Medium

That’s it. All of the effort was really done outside PPT, in Photoshop. Once the elements where one the slide it was pretty easy to apply the few needed animations.
