Transitions and animations have been one of the most requested features for our online presentations product, Zoho Show. We’re happy to release them today. We’ve added 30 slide transitions and 5 in-slide animations that you can add to your Zoho Show presentation. And just in case you are wondering, when you import a Powerpoint presentation that has transitions, we do import those with it. Same thing when you export a presentation. You will find the transitions & animations menu on the right-hand side in the Zoho Show UI (next to where the Shapes and Themes are, see below).
More than just writing about them, I thought it’d be more appropriate to embed a small Zoho Show presentation where you can see them in action. Transitions and animations (all 30 of them) work whether you’re in Slideshow mode or whether you embedded the presentation in a web page.
Since we are talking about embedding a presentation, you might want to check out our embedding options. We’ve re-designed the entire process to not only add more options, but also make it super easy for you to embed the presentation in your site and have it look just like you wanted. Now, when you go to Publish->Embed, you’ll notice there is an “Advanced Options” link. Here you can easily control -no HTML tweaking needed- the size of your embedded presentation, whether you want controls on it, and several other options.
That’s not all. We also just released support for Google Chrome in Zoho Show. Previously, you were only able to view presentation when using Chrome. Now, you can also edit them. We are a big fan of Chrome’s stability, speed and what it means for online applications like ours. So this was of course a natural step for us.
