expression. Decelerate

expression A variable that represents a Timing object.

Return value



For example, a value of 0.9 means that an deceleration should start at the default speed, and then start to slow down after the first ten percent of the animation.


This example adds a shape and adds an animation that starts at the default speed and slows down after 70% of the animation has finished.

Sub AddShapeSetTiming()

    Dim effDiamond As Effect
    Dim shpRectangle As Shape

    'Adds rectangle and sets animation effect

    Set shpRectangle = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes _
        .AddShape(Type:=msoShapeRectangle, Left:=100, _
        Top:=100, Width:=50, Height:=50)

    Set effDiamond = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).TimeLine _
        .MainSequence.AddEffect(Shape:=shpRectangle, _

    'Slows the effect after seventy percent of the animation has finished

    With effDiamond.Timing
        .Decelerate = 0.3
    End With

End Sub
