Class AnimationSettings (PowerPoint VBA)

The class AnimationSettings represents the special effects applied to the animation for the specified shape during a slide show.

Class Shape gives access to class AnimationSettings.

To use a AnimationSettings class variable it first needs to be instantiated, for example

Dim ass as AnimationSettings
Set ass = ActiveWindow.RangeFromPoint.AnimationSettings

The following procedures can be used to set variables of type AnimationSettings: Shape.AnimationSettings and ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.
