PowerPoint features used

The primary feature used here is Remove Background in order to make the glass panes of the window transparent. This allowed us to insert the clouds behind the image.

See this post for more details about this brilliant feature.
Artificial Intelligence at work: Remove Background

The other feature used is a simple straight line animation. By making the animation slow we got a realistic and impressive visual effect.

I will cover animation in more detail in some future posts.

Show off this demo and use the concepts in your presentations.

Impress your friends and enthrall your audience. Enjoy Thumbs up
