Excel Video 515 Scene Options in 3D Maps

Jul 4, 2016Excel 2016, Maps

Happy 4th of July, everyone! I hope you enjoyed the long weekend. In Excel Video 515 we will play a Tour and change some Scene Options relating to how the Tour is presented. A Tour is simply a collection of scenes played in the order we set in Excel Video 514. The Scene Options menu focuses on two choices. How long is each scene and how do we transition from one scene to the next scene? I have intentionally made the scenes short to make the Excel Video shorter. You will probably go longer than 5 seconds per scene. The default scene length is 10 seconds.

Watch for the different transitions from scene to scene. There are several different transition effects. You can control the length of the transition and the magnitude of the effect, or how dramatic the effect appears. The default transition is 3 seconds. There is no transition to the first scene that starts the Tour, but you can control transitions to remaining scenes. The transition from scene 2 to scene 3, for example, is controlled by the transition set up on scene 2.

We will save our work and look at ways to share the Tour in the next Excel Video. I look forward to seeing you then.
