Just a moment...

Prezi has an animation feature that allows you to fade content into your prezi. This feature works like a path step as each animated element will fade in as you move through the path of your prezi. To fade in content, it must be placed within a frame.

Note: Remember that you can only animate content that is placed within a frame. 

Check out this video to learn how to use fade-in animation:

To fade in elements within a frame:

  1. Within Edit Mode, click the 'Edit path' button on the left-hand side of the Prezi editor. 
  2. Click the star symbol to the left of the frame that you want to animate. 
  3. Once the animation wizard has appeared, hover over the element that you want to fade in. The element will fade as you hover your cursor over it, click to apply the fade-in effect. A number will appear in a green star icon to the top-left of the element. That number corresponds to the order in which that element will fade in to your frame. 
  4. To preview how the various elements of the  frame will appear as they fade in, click the Play triangle at the top-right of the animation wizard window. 
  5. If you are not happy with the order in which your elements are fading in, click the 'Reset' button located in the top-left corner of the animation wizard window. This will remove all animations from your chosen frame.
  6. When you are happy with your animations, click the 'Done" button in the top-right corner. 

Note: You can fade in multiple items of content at once if you place them in a group. However, if you later group new content with any of the elements that you have previously animated, the new content will not fade in with those elements.

Hey David!

It's Tomi here. A user is confused, why he can't use animation on every path-steps. This is because he can use it if the path-step is a frame (fuck-logic anyway...). Please mention it somewhere on the top of the article!

(Sorry to write here, I can't find your suggestion brask on my google drive.)
