The Morph transition helps you to animate seamless movement from one slide to the next. This video outlines the concept and how to use the Morph transition, in the space of 90 seconds.

You can relay the Morph transition to slides to design the appearance of movement in a broad variety of elements—text, shapes, pictures, SmartArt graphics, and WordArt. However, charts don’t morph. 

Note: Morph is available if you have an Office 365 subscription or are using PowerPoint 2019. For Office 365 subscribers using PowerPoint for the web, Morph is available when you are using files stored in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online.

Setting up a Morph transition

To fully optimise the Morph transition, you must have two slides with a minimum of one consistent object; the simplest way is to copy the slide and then rearrange the object’s location on the second slide to another area, or duplicate and paste the object from one slide and replicate it to the following one. Then, set the Morph transition to the second slide to visualise what Morph can do to intuitively animate and move your object. Here’s how:
