Use the Morph transition in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, iPad and iPhone

PowerPoint's brand-new transition type, Morph, is now available to Office365 subscribers on PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, iPad, and iPhone. You can use Morph to make objects move and transform across your slides.

Setting up a Morph transition

To set up a Morph transition effectively, you'll need to have two slides with at least one object in common. An easy way to set it up is to copy and paste a slide with objects you want to morph, and then move the objects on the second slide to a different place. You can also simply copy and paste objects from one slide to the next.

Once you have the beginning and end of your Morph transition set up on two slides, you can apply the Morph transition to automatically animate and move them. Here's how:
