The 3D Models feature allows us to insert 3D objects into PowerPoint in an extremely simple way. And this feature is now available on PowerPoint 2019, 2021 and 365 versions.
All three versions above have 3D Models feature, but PowerPoint 365 is the best version, because it provides more specific types of motion effects that other PowerPoint versions do not have.
This is really a privilege and a favor of Microsoft for PowerPoint 365.
But if we want, we can still use the trick to be able to insert these characteristic motion effects into PowerPoint versions like 2019, 2021.. Specifically, we will export 3D objects from PowerPoint 365 to images animated GIF => then share with everyone.
Okay, now let’s do it together!
#first. How to create 3D animations with PowerPoint 365
+ Step 1: Start up
PowerPoint 365 up => select
Insert => choose
3D Models => choose

+ Step 2: Online 3D Models provides us with a lot of different 3D objects, but only those belonging to the group
Animated new special motion effects.
Here I will choose the object
Octopus in group
Animated Animals => and choose
+ Step 3: You double-click on the inserted 3D object => observe and remember two fields of information
Width. The specific value for this object is Cao to be 4.14” and Width to be 4.01”
+ Step 4: Customize the size of the slide just clicked with the size of the 3D object
If you do not do this step, the output animation will take the size of the whole silde, so a lot of space will be redundant, not only increasing the size of the animation.
Design => choose
Slide Size => choose
Custom Slide Size …
Slide Size appears, now enter the size of
Height equal to the dimensions noted in
Bước 3 => and choose
+ Step 5: The Microsoft PowerPoint dialog box appears, select

Make background transparent => choose
Save As appears, select the save folder you want to save, give it a name => and select
