Woah – check out this mind boggling animated PowerPoint background. It will do your head in!
We sort of did something similar, but with different colours and stuff here:
You might think animated backgrounds like these would be distracting for your audience. Well, that would be true if you were delivering a presentation to a group of jargon spewing corporate zombies. But PowerPoint can be used for different purposes. I’ll just leave that hanging.
These animated backgrounds were created by our talented minions (nearly said morons) using Lightwave 3D. They asked me whether it would be possible to create a Lightwave tutorial for you showing how they made their fab backgrounds, because they are generous and kind like that. I told them not to be stupid, because you just want the backgrounds to download, and that you don’t want to be bothered with how they are made. God’s sakes.
Anyway, I might change my mind. It depends on how many people reach this page searching for Lightwave tutorials (I shall be keeping a close eye on my traffic logs). And they are such talented
You’ll notice that the first background opens up in PowerPoint whereas the second opens up in whatever video player is set up as your default. Weird, huh?
Did we mention that there are only 46 shopping days left to Christmas? If an animated snowflake background is on your Christmas list, then you need look no further; here’s another animated snowflake background! As you can imagine, our elflike designers adore Christmas and have got busy with their Christmas backgrounds.
Although the original video size was a staggering 77 MB, we’ve shrunk it down to a more manageable 2MB. If you thought you had time to grab a quick cup of coffee, while you downloaded the background, think again!
This animated background is 6 seconds of 1333 px x 1000 px christmas snowflake fun. You can download it by right clicking on the image or the link and selecting “save target as”. Find a location on your computer and save it.
OK, we know that there are a whopping 49 shopping days left to Christmas, but we couldn’t resist opening that tin of Christmassy Animated Snowflake Backgrounds. You can download the movie and use it in a variety of places, including, of course, a PowerPoint presentation. The best thing to do is probably right click on the image above (or the link given earlier) and then “save target as” to a location on your computer. It’s a 10 second animated movie of snowflakes falling and we managed to whittle the file size down to a mere 3.2 MB. That will take next to no time to download. See how we look after you?
We’ve already spotted loads of ways we can improve this background, so I’m sure there will be more versions to download in the run up to Christmas. Stay tuned!
