Windows 7: PowerPoint Animation Question

PowerPoint Animation Question

I have created a slide that has 10 animations that pop up when I on click each one along with text. It looks like:

Animation 1: clean your computer keyboard with compressed air
Animation 2: clean dust particles
Animation 3: picture of dirty computer
Animation 4: pciture of dirty keyboard
Animation 5: clean your monitor with a microfiber towel

I want animation 6 to be this microfiber that when I do a swipe of the screen erases all my previous animations so it looks as if I just cleaned the monitor.

I have looked through all of my options for what I can make my animation do and cannot find something that will erase prior ones when the microfiber towel swoops across screen. Anyone out there know?

In Office 2010 one object can have 4 types of animation on the same slide (Entrance, Emphasis, Exit, and Motion Path).

Go to Animations tab and turn on Animation Pane. You will see order of animations and their type.

Let’s say all your objects have Fly In animation as Entrance Animation.
Then you highlight your microfiber towel and create another animation for it by clicking button “Add Animation on Animations tab”. Select Motion Path animation and select “Spiral or Custom” trajectory, so it looks like towel is moving across screen.

Now it is time to add Exit animations for first objects. Highlight it, click Add Animation –Exit. There are such options as Disappear, Fade out, Fly Out etc. To make all objects disappear at the same time you can highlight animation in Animation Pane, right click on it and select “Start with previous”.

If you have troubles you can always PM me your file and I will do animation on that slide for you.

Hex numbers for use in animation
I make 3D animated movies using Maxon Cinema 4D. I have seen on the www's what looks like screen grabs of possibly HDD's content showing arrays of hex numbers. It would be cool if I could get a text file of such data to use as content on a screen in one of my projects. Any ideas ?
