If you have PowerPoint 2019 or 365, you can use the amazing Morph transition to morph one object into another (or multiple objects into other objects). Although you can apply Morph to create movement, you can also use other tricks like changing the size or formatting of text, shapes, pictures, SmartArt, WordArt and charts.
