PowerPoint animations often depend on which motion effect is needed. For this membership animation example, the request was to emphasis each segment of the pie chart for discussion points (again, we simplified the slide for the blog by removing client information, template and styling). Because the numbers are constantly updating, our goal was to animate the editable pie chart vs. creating custom shapes and animating.

The formatting was simple, adjust pie chart and callout text size/position. For this effect, the Morph transition really did not accomplish a clean modern motion effect. A series of Fade transitions was a bit nicer than the Morph transition, but it still did not achieve a visual we liked. Ultimately, using the Shape (circle) out transition achieved a visual effect we liked.
