1. Introduction: Hello, ladies and gentlemen. Throughout this class, I'll teach you how you can create three modern looking animated infographics using PowerPoint and Inkscape. Powerpoint and Inkscape are two powerful tools when combined together, Inkscape is also for creating info-graphic shapes and PowerPoint shines when it comes to making your infographic slug pretty an animated. Let me introduce myself. My name is one skill that is my nickname. My real name is cost-plus and I live in Vilnius, Lithuania. And one more thing, I love PowerPoint. I have been creating PowerPoint tutorials since 2014, And I have created many Powerpoint graphics myself. And in this class I went to share the best techniques for creating infographics with you. I do my best to explain everything step-by-step, zoom in when needed, show keyboard shortcuts on the screen. And the PowerPoint version that I'm using for this class as Microsoft 365. However, in a pop on version that you have, we'll do in this class, we'll be using Inkscape as well. Inkscape is a free open source vector program, so feel free to download it and install it on your computer. It works on Windows and Mac. This class is perfect for teachers, students, freelancers, marketing experts, speakers, everyone who want to visualize their ideas with attractive infographics. All right, so let's get started. 2. Class Project: So for our class project, we will be creating three modern looking animated infographics using PowerPoint. And instead, by following the process presented in this class, you'll be able to construct style and nanometer horsemen from graphics. And for each of the infographics, we will walk through the following process. So first of all, creating info-graphic shapes, it's possible to create pretty much all of the shapes that we need just using PowerPoint. However, we will jump into Inkscape and uncover even greater control and flexibility. Next, we will style our infographics. We will add gradient fills, soft shadows and icons. And finally, we will add animations. We will use PowerPoint animations to bring our infographics to live. After completing all of the lessons, you'll have all of the skills necessary to create modern looking animated infographics. And I encourage you to share your projects in the student project section so that everyone can get inspired. And now let's get started. 3. Hexagon: Setting Up: Hello, ladies and gentlemen. In this lesson, we'll start creating our first and for graphic which looks like this, say beautiful six-step hexagon infographic. So we can start from a blank slide. But since in my previous Skillshare class, we have created a modern PowerPoint template. Let me use one of the slide lamps that we have created. Feel free to watch that class as well if you haven't already. And before we continue, let me walk you through some of the settings that I'm using. First of all, the slide size, which is set to HD 67.73 centimeters for the width, and 38110 centimeters formaldehyde. Next to have a couple of texts placeholders for the title and subtitle, place where your logo and here on the side of having custom footer slide number. In my previous class, we have created this custom color palettes. So let's use the same beautiful color. Fill all of our infographics. So my heading font is set to Montserrat semi bold. And for a body font, I'm using railway line on the right and here in the middle I have placed three additional colors. We will be using these gray colors to create this beautiful gray look. Okay, so we will be using the land gray color for the slide background, the middle gray color for the shadows, and dark gray color for our text case. So now let me just copy the hex code of this light gray color and Eldridge jump to Slide Master View, click View and Slide Master. Okay, so let's select the Slide Master at the top. Because what happens on the Slide Master will be visible in all of the slide layouts. Okay, so let's right-click choose Format background. Let's go to Fill Options. Let's choose more colors. Let's go to custom tab. And here we can paste in the hex code. And let's hit Okay, as you can see, the background has updated that super-duper. Awesome. We will still have to update the footer and the slight number. And before that, let me update the color of this example logo, which is made out of two textboxes. So let's get back to normal view. And let's copy this dark gray color that we have decided to use for the text. Okay, let's copy the hex code. Now we can select this logo, and now let's just go to text colors. Once again, let's go to More Colors. Custom, and let's paste in the hex code. Hit. Okay, That's pretty awesome. And let's use the same color for these texts please holders as well. Okay, so now let's select our footer, hold down the Shift key, select the slide number. And now let's pick the same fill color that we have used for our slide background. The same beautiful light gray color. That's awesome. And now let me take care of the shadows. So for the shadows, let's copy the hex code of this middle gray column. Let's get back to PowerPoint. Once again, let's select the footer and the slide number. Right-click. Go to Format Object. And let's find the shadow options. And here in the shadow color options, less boat, More Colors, Custom. And let's paste in the hex code. Let's change the angle of the shadow to 45 degrees, just for fun. All right, then the rest of the settings look pretty much perfect. Okay? And of course, let's change. Let's update the color side of the footer and the slide number 2, this dark gray column. Okay, As you can see, these custom colors are available in the recent color lists. So that's awesome. And now we can delete these bubbles. We don't need the minimum. And now let me just type in some texts for our title and subtitle. Mistype and hexagon for the title. And let's copy this text prescribed him. And for graphic. All right, so now that the slide background is ready, we can start working on this beautiful hexagon infographic. And to make the whole process faster and easier, we will be using Inkscape, which is a free open source vector program that works both on Windows and Mac. So feel free to grab a copy Inkscape.org. And as you can see, our hexagon has rounded corners. That is actually not so easy to do just using PowerPoint. Of course, we can insert a hexagon, but still there's no easy and quick way to add some rounded corners to hexagon. So for that reason, in the next lesson, we'll be jumping into Inkscape, where I will show you how we can easily and quickly create all of the shapes that we need. And later on, import them back into PowerPoint. So I'll see you there. 4. Hexagon: Creating Shapes in Inkscape: Welcome back everyone and welcome to this lesson where we will jump into Inkscape and create all of the shapes that we need for our beautiful infographic. So hopefully you have Inkscape installed in your computer. And the first thing that I like to do when I open up being scape is too high that page borders. So let's just go to document properties and uncheck Show page border. This way we get a cleaner look. Alright, now we can select the polygon on Star Tool. Let's make sure that for the corners there is six and that we have activated the polygon mode. That's awesome. And now let's hold down the Control key and draw a perfect hexagon with a pointy edge facing a ports. Just like that. As you can see, our hexagon has sharp edges. And now let me show you how we can add that rounded corners effect. So let's make sure we select our hexagon. Now let's just go to Path. Beth effects. Let's click on this plus symbol and let's choose corners effect. Right? Units are set to pixels. And now for the radius, let's just type in 25. Hit Enter. As you can see, the corners have been rounded. That's super awesome. Now we can finalize this effect by going to path and clicking Object Path, right? And close out the bath effects window. Okay, Let's change the color of this hexagon to yellow. And now we can select the circle tool and while holding down the control key, draw a perfect circle. Okay, let's send it to back. Let's make it a little bit bigger than the hexagon. All right? And here on the right side we have a bunch of snapping options that are really useful. Let's make sure that we activate this one called snap centers of objects. And now we can easily snap the circle to the center of this hexagon, k. We can adjust the size of the circle a little bit just like that. All right, and let's get back to PowerPoint for a little bit and I'll show you what we'll have to create next. So as you can see, our hexagon and for graphic has these kind of triangle shapes. So once we create one shape, we can duplicate it and place it around the hexagon. So now let me show you how we can create this triangle shape in Inkscape. So basically we will have to draw a rectangle and with the help of the intersect function, we will get a triangle shape that we need. All right, so this time we'll be using the Bezier tool, which is useful for creating lines or paths as they are called an escape. And in the snapping options, let's make sure that snap to cusp nose and snap to smooth. Now's is activated. Now mouse over this point. Click once, hold down the Control key to drag it perfect line upwards just like that, and double-click to finish drawing our first line. Now let's select this point. Click once, hold down the Control key, click again, and double-click to finish drawing the second line, just like that. So we are almost finished with the triangle. We still have a little gap here at the bottom that we have to connect. So once again, select the Bezier tool, select the first click. Once, select the second and double-click to finish. The worry that this line is sharp, we will add that curve later on. Okay, so now we have three separate lines and we have to join them together before continuing. So let's just select the note tool, select all of our lines. And first let's zoom to this area. Let's just drag and select both of these points and click on this button, joint selected nodes. And this way these two points have been joined. Okay, now let's zoom in here at the bottom. And once again, let's select these two points. Let's join them together. And let's join these two guys at the bottom as well. Awesome. So now this is one single triangle shape. So you can see we can set the fill color just like that, but let's leave it the way it is. And now we can select the circle, hold down the Shift key, select this triangle shape, go to path and choose intersection. And this way we get the shape that we need. But as you can see, when we move this hexagon to the right side a little bit. This blue shape still has this kind of sharp corner and we would like it to be rounded. So we can duplicate this hexagon, just hit Control D to duplicate. As you can see, we have made a copy, so let me make it green so that we can see it better. And now let's select our blue shape, our green shape, and let's go to path and choose difference. And now as you can see, when we move the hexagon to the right side, our blue shape has this rounded corner right here. And now we can just duplicate this blue shape couple of times and place it around the hexagon. So let's just hit Control D to duplicate. Let me fill it with a different shade of blue. Let's click on this Copy once again so that we get these rotation handles hold down the Control key to rotate. And with the help of the snapping options, we can easily snap all of these copies nicely to our hexagon. So let me finish placing all of these copies surround the hexagon and I'll meet you in a moment. All right, so all of the shapes that we need are ready and now we can select everything, just hit Control a to select everything and hit Control C to copy. Now we can get back to PowerPoint and hit Control V to paste. And this is how easily we can copy shapes from Escape to PowerPoint. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. We can resize this hexagon, place it wherever we want. That super awesome. Now let's convert this hexagon to shape. Now let's ungroup it. And now we can select all of the individual parts that super awesome. And if for some reason this direct copying and pasting from escaped to PowerPoint doesn't work for you. You can try saving this Inkscape file as SVG. Or if SVG doesn't work for you, you can try saving it as EMF and then you should definitely be able to import anything that you create an escape to PowerPoint. All right, ladies and gentlemen, That was it for this lesson. And in the next one we will start styling our hexagon. We will add some beautiful gradients and some soft shadows. So I'll see you there. 5. Hexagon: Styling: Hello everyone. In this lesson we will make our infographic beautiful. So let's start with this hexagon in the middle. Let's select it. And then let's add a white fill or right input. Now we can hide the rest of these blue shapes. So let's just go to selection pane and let's hide them all so that we can focus on this hexagon. Right? So let's zoom in a little bit and now let me add some text to this hexagon. So let's double-click that center align the text. So for the font, Let's use Montserrat semi bold font size 14. Aim for the text color. Let's use this dark gray. And let's type in our right. And for the second text line, let's choose a different font, railway light font size 20. And let's type in values. Our values, Ladies and gentleman. Okay, so now we can add a gradient fill to this hexagon. So let's right-click choose Format, Shape, gradient fill. Okay, So first of all, we can decide what kind of direction we would like to have. So let's choose this one with a 45 degree angle. Super-duper. Awesome. So here we have two color stops. Let's choose white for one side and light gray for the other. Let's make sure it's the same light gray color that we're using for the background. All right? And we can as well play with the positioning of these color stops. So let's move the gray stopped to 70 percent and the white colored stamp to 30 percent. This way we will get the more dramatic gradient. That's awesome, right? And now let's add a gradient line to this hexagon. So now let's just jumped wine options. Let's choose gradient line. And once again, let's add a gradient would do color stops, white and light gray. Okay, so for the line width, let's center 1, 25. That's awesome. And for the angle, let's use 45 degrees. Okay, and now let's actually flip these colors so that we have this gray edge on the top left corner and this white edge on the bottom right, just like this. All right, so the hexagon is finished and now let me unhide the rest of these shapes. Okay, so let's make sure that we send this hexagon to front. All right. And let's take one more look at this final infographic. As you can see, all have to add some beautiful gradients. So let's select this top shape and let's start with it. Let's go to Format shapes, gradient fill. And now let me choose a couple of colors from our custom color palettes. So let's choose one dark shade of this purple color and one lighter shade of this purple color as well. And let's pick a gradient direction, for example, this one. That's nice. And now let's add a soft shadow to this shape. So let's go to shadow options. Let's choose this bottom-right preset. And for the shadow color, Let's use this middle gray column. That's awesome. For the blur, Let's insert 40 points. That's good. And for the distance, let's use 20 points. As you can see, there is a slight soft shadow that's beautiful. And now we can select this shape and hit Control Shift. To copy the style. Now let's select the rest of these blue shapes and hit Control Shift V to paste the style. And now all that's left to do is to update these gradient fills with new colors. So for the second shape, Let's choose a new pair of colors. One color is darker and one color is lighter. And sometimes it might be hard to decide which direction you should use. So you can bring these two colors stops closer together. Now just click on the small arrows and the angle box until you get the direction that looks right for you. Okay, Just like that, now we can bring back these gradient stops. Okay, So let me update the rest of these gradients and I'll meet you in a second. All right, so the hexagon with those triangles shapes are ready. And now we can take care of these textboxes and these bubbles. So let's go to Insert Shapes and let's choose the circle tool. Hold down the Shift key to draw a perfect circle just like that. Now we can copy the style from this triangle shape and pasted tar bubble. Okay, Let me just adjust the direction of the gradient. Let's pick this one. Alright, now let's make a copy. And this time let's copy the hexagon style and let's apply it to this second level. Okay, let's make it smaller and outlets central line these two bubbles. That's awesome. And let's type in 1 into this white bubble. Okay, now I can group these two guys into one group. Let's position it somewhere right here. That's good. Now let me grab this text box that's just copy it. And let's paste it into our class project. That's awesome. Now let's select these bubbles and a textbox, and let's group them into one group. And now let's just make a few more copies. Hold down the Control Shift key to drag a few copies in a straight line. And let's make sure that we distribute these guys vertically so that we have equal gaps between them. And now let me just update the numbers and let me just update the gradient fills for these bubbles so we can just copy the styles from the shapes and paste those tiles, these bubbles. And let me adjust the gradient direction for these bubbles so that a lighter color is on top and darker color is at the bottom. Okay, and now we will have to make some copies on the right side. So let's just ungroup these groups for now so that we can select these bubbles. Okay, hold down the Control Shift key and drag a copy to the right side, just like that. And the same way, Let's just drag those text boxes to the right side as well as change the text alignment. And now let me quickly update the numbers and a gradient fills. I'll see you in a second. All right, so we are pretty much finished for this lesson. Let's just make sure that we group these bubbles with textboxes back into groups. And in the next lesson we will be adding animations. We will bring our infographic to live. So I'll see you there. 6. Hexagon: Adding Animations: Welcome back everyone and welcome to the last lesson for the heck's going infographic where we will be adding these flying animations with some mounting end effect. So let's jump to animations. And let's open up the animation pane. That's beautiful. And now we can start animating our title and subtitle. So first, let's select the subtitle. And let's choose the flight. In effect, we can choose the flying direction, for example, this one from top. So let's make sure it starts with previews, duration two seconds. And in the Effect Options, let's add a 0.12 bound set. Just for fun. This is how it looks like. That's awesome. And now we can copy this animation with the animation painter and paste it to the title. Okay, let's just add a slight delay of 0.1 seconds. Okay, So this is how it looks like. That's beautiful. Alright, so now we can use the animation painter and paste the same animation to this first group. Let's just change the flying direction from left. And let's make sure it starts onclick. Now let's paste this animation to this shape. And let's just make sure it starts with previous. So once we click and this first group comes, this shape comes at the same time with previous. So let's test it out. I click once and here the bubble comes and this shape as well. So everything is working perfectly. Let me just change the flight direction for this shape. Let's choose from top, just like that. And now we can select this first group and use the animation painter to paste the same animation to the second group. And we can select this shape and base the animation to the other shape, just like that. So let's test it out. First click. Now the second click. Okay. So let's continue. Let's select the second group and paste the animation from the second group to the third group. And the same way we can paste animation from the yellow sheet to the orange shape. And as always, you can change the flying direction. So you can see it's pretty easy. Just follow the process and copy paste the animations from one shape to the other using the animation painter. And along the way, you can always change the fly and direction to any direction that you want. All right, So now that all of these bubble groups and shapes around the hexagon are animated. Let's add a Zoom animation to the hexagon itself. So let's add a Zoom animation. Let's make sure we bring it upwards in the animation pane. Lets me show us fast with previous node u Ln, ration 1 second. And let's check out everything on the full screen. First of all, the titles come then the hexagon. And then once we click, we get different parts. Super-duper, awesome. So congratulations, ladies and gentlemen. Now you know how you can create an animated the hexagon infographic. That's super awesome. And in the next lesson we'll start creating this beautiful Pentagon infographic. So I'll see you there. 7. Pentagon: Creating Shapes in inkscape: Hello and welcome everyone to this lesson where we will start working in this beautiful Pentagon. And for graphic, as you can see, we have some smaller pentagons flying from the size. And we have this kind of progression mark going around the main Pentagon. That's awesome. So let's jump to our class project to have already inserted the second slide. And the first step that we have to do is to create a pentagon with rounded corners. So once again, we can jump to escape. Escape will help us to do that very easily and quickly. So let's select the polygon tool. Let's make sure that the corners are set to five. Hold down the Control key and draw a pentagon is, you can see in this case it's hard to get the Pentagon with a straight line at the bottom. So to fix this, we have to make some changes inside of the preferences. So let's just go to edit preferences. Let's find rotation snapping options and let's set it to 1818 works perfectly for pentagons. So let's try again. And now as you can see, we can draw a nice pentagon. Okay, so let's go to path. Path affects, hit on the plus symbol, and let's choose corners. Fact, units are set to pixels. That's good. And for the radius, let's just type in 25, hit Enter. And this way we get rounded corners for our pentagon. That's awesome. Okay, we can finalize the look by a golden path, object path. That's good. And as you can see, we have to create two kinds of pentagons. One with a solid line and one with its line divided into five equal parts. So let me show you how we can do that and Inkscape. Okay, so let's just duplicate the Pentagon had Control D. Let's make it green. Now let's send this green coffee to back. Let's click on this button to send it to back. All right, so now the green copies sent to back and it is still selected. And now we can go to Path and let's choose dynamic offset. We get this white handle, grab it, and drag it. And this way we can expand our green coffee. That's awesome. Okay, we can finalize the look just as good path, object path. That's good. Now let's make a duplicate of these two guys. Just hit Control D to duplicate, hold down the Control key to drag a copy straight in a straight line to the right side. And now let me show you how we can divide this hexagon into five equal parts. Now let's make sure that all of the unnecessary snapping options are enabled. So let's make sure that we enable snap to the center of objects and snap to the midpoints of lines. That's going to be really useful. Let me just change the colors of these guys on the right side so we can see everything better. Now let's just select the Bezier tool. Click once in the center, double-click at the midpoint on the side. And repeat this for all sides of the Pentagon. Click in the middle and double-click at the midpoint of the side. Just like that. Right? So now we have all of the lines that we need. Let's select all of these lines. We can use the Shift key to deselect those pentagons. Let's make sure that we select only the lines. Now let's just go to path and choose combined. This way we have combined all of these lines into one object. Now let's select the blue pentagon, hold down the Shift key, select our lines. And now let's just go to path and choose division. And this way we have divided our blue Pentagon into five equal parts. Let me just move this yellow pentagon to the right side. And let's just give different colors, all of these five parts so that we can better see them. That's awesome. Okay, And for this hexagon, Let's make it green and let's bring it back to the center. So now we have all of the shapes that we need for our Pentagon and for graphic. And now we can select all of these guys and the right side hit Control C to copy. Let's get back to PowerPoint and hit Control V to paste. Let's make sure that the Pentagon is aligned to the center of the slide. That's awesome. Now let's convert it to shape. Click on this button, convert to shape. And now we can ungroup the whole thing. And now we can access all of the individual parts. That's super awesome. So ladies and gentlemen, That was it for this lesson. And in the next one we will import the rest of the pentagons and we will style everything so everything looks beautiful. So see you there. 8. Pentagon: Styling: Welcome back everyone. Now it's time to make our Pentagon and for graphic beautiful. So let's make sure that we ungroup everything. Now let's just go to our hexagon slide and now we can copy the hexagon style. Just hit Control Shift C to copy the style. Now let's select the Pentagon and hit Control Shift V to paste the style super-duper. Awesome. And now we can select these individual Pentagon parts. And let's fill them with these colors from our custom color palette. That's nice. And now we can insert some text inside of the Pentagon. And for the second line of texts, let's choose a different font, railway light font size 28. And we can even space out the letters a little bit. Let's choose loose. That's awesome. And that was, you can see we have still to add a couple more of these pentagons. So let's use these guys on the left side. Just select them, copy them, and let's paste them into PowerPoint. Let's resize these guys. Let's convert them to shape. Let's make sure that we have enough space here at the bottom. Because we'll have to add one of those pentagons here at the bottom, right. This looks about right. Now let me just copy the style from this main Pentagon, Pentagon and let's paste it to the smaller Pentagon. And now we can copy the style from this yellow part. This smaller Pentagon as well. Just like that. Now let's just select this smaller yellow pentagon and let's add a shadow. I feel like I'm repeating the word Pentagon quite a lot. For the shadow. Let's make sure that for the blur, we insert 20 points. Distance 50 points. It's super-duper. Awesome. All right, now let's find an icon that we could insert to our smaller pentagon. Let's go to icons 8.com slash line. Awesome. And I have already downloaded a couple of icons from this website. And let me just grab this icon from this slide. And let's paste it right here. Of course, if you have the icon tab in your PowerPoint version, you can use those icons provided by bar 1. Now let's insert a rounded rectangle. This is going to be a label for step 1. Now let's just copy this title from this hexagon. And let's paste the style to this little buddy over here. Now let's set the font color to white. For the font months, red, semi bold, text, center aligned. And for the font size, let's use 32. And let's type in step one. Let's make it a little bit bigger, just like that. And let me copy this smaller text box from my previous slide. Basically dried here. Few more adjustments. Right now we can group all of these guys into one group, hit Control G to group. And now let's make four more copies. And let's position them round the main Pentagon. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Now let's just drag a few more copies here to the right side. Now let me update the colors of the labels of these smaller pentagons. And I'm leaving the same icon just to save some time. Of course, you can choose any icon that you want. And that was it for this lesson, ladies and gentlemen. And in the next one we will be adding animations. So I'll see you there. 9. Pentagon: Adding Animations: Hello everyone. In this lesson we will bring our pentagon infographic to live. So once we click the first group comes Glick again, the second group, and so on. And as you can see, we have this kind of progress bar going around the main Pentagon. So let me show you how we can do all of this. Is go to Animations. Animation Pane. Currently, our title and subtitle have animations, so let me just grab animation from our subtitle. Let's use the animation painter analysts paste it to group number one. Let's change the direction from left. Let's make sure stats on click. And this is how it looks like. That's awesome. Now let's select this yellow shape. First lesson group everything. Now we can select this yellow shape. And let's add a wipe animation. Wipe from top. And let's make sure it starts with previous. Okay, Let's test it out. We click once, and here comes the step number one group. And this wipe animation is happening at the same time. That's awesome. And now we can use the animation painter to paste the same animations to the rest of the Pentagon's into the rest of these shapes around the main Pentagon. And don't forget to change the animation directions according to a taste. For example, this one could go from left hand. For example, step number 4, quote fly in from right. Okay, so let's use the animation painter to base the animation to the rest of these shapes are right. Now we can animate this main Pentagon and the center as well. We can go to our previous slide and use the animation painter and paste this animation from the hexagon and paste it to our pentagon. Let's just move this animation on ports inside of the animation pane so that it's happening after the title and subtitle animations. And now let's enjoy the final result on the full screen. So we'll click once we get step number 1, click twice step number 2, and so on. So congratulations, ladies and gentlemen. Now you know how you can create this, animate the Pentagon infographic. In the next lesson, we will start creating this awesome 3D road infographic. That's going to be a lot of fun. So I'll see you there. 10. 3D Road: Creating Shapes in Inkscape: Hello and welcome everyone to this lesson where we will start creating this beautiful 3D rhodium for graphic. You can see this road has beautiful gradient fill and we have a couple of steps with bubbles and reflections. So let's jump to escape and let's create all of the shapes that we need. So let's select the rectangle tool. And let's draw a rectangle. By the way, if you'd like to change the fill of this rectangle, you can click on the colors. Just right here. I'll choose a no fill. And if you'd like, change the outline color, just hold down the Shift key and click on any color that you want. Let's leave the blue color. That's awesome. And now let's make sure that your rectangle tool is still selected. And now we can grab this yellow handle and make our rectangle rounded. That's awesome. Now let's go to Fill and Stroke settings. Now we have a 15 pixels set as the width of our stroke or outline. And the stroke is really important because this is going to be the width of our road. So let's try something and wider, for example, 150 pixels. All right, that looks good. So let's zoom out a little bit and let me make this rectangle a bit bigger. Just like that, we can select the rectangle tool again and click on this white handle to make sure that the corners are rounded. That's awesome. And now let's get back to the fill and stroke menu and make our lines a little bit transparent. That's good. And now let's make sure that we have all of the necessary snapping options enabled. So let's make sure that Snap centers of objects is enabled. And snap smooth nodes and snap cusp nodes is enabled. Okay, now we can select the busier tool. Click once, hold down the Control key and double-click to draw a straight line. Now let's snap this straight line to the center of this rectangle, just like that. Now select the rectangle, hold down the Shift key, select the line, and let's go to path and choose Cut path. And this way, we have cut our rectangle into two pieces that has super-duper. Awesome. Okay, so let's get back to PowerPoint. So we have to create this kind of bottom part and this top part. Okay, so let's go to Inkscape. So we can select this top part and let's move it to the right side and less snap it to this point. Let's make sure it snaps like this. That's good. Okay, Let's bring these guides to the center. Now let's duplicate this bottom part. Hit Control D to duplicate. Let's flip it vertically. Okay, let's make sure snap like this. And now we will have to cut it in the middle. So once again, let's draw a line. This time, let's draw a vertical line. And let's snap it to the middle of this shape. Just like this. Okay, so once again, let's select this blue shape, hold down the Shift key, select the line and go to path and choose Cut path. All right, we can delete this part. And now let's like the Bezier tool and just draw a straight line just like that. And we can copy the style from this guy, just right-click and choose Copy. And now let's right-click on the line and choose based style. All right, so we are pretty much finished with the left side of this road. And now let's copy this shape and let's bring it to the right side. Let's flip it vertically and horizontally. And let's snapped right here. Okay, now let's duplicate this shape as well. And let's snap it right here. That's awesome. So now all of these parts of the road, they are lines or as they're called an escape strokes. And we have to convert these strokes to path. So let's just go to path and choose Stroke Path. And now we will be able to union all of these elements. So let's choose union. And that will have one solid shape. They're super-duper awesome. And as you can see in PowerPoint, we have this kind of perspective look applied to our road. So let me show you how we can add this perspective looks. So let's select a row. Let's go to path, path effects. Let's click on force so that we zoom in as good. Now let's click on the plus and let's look for perspective effect. Here it is. Let's click on it. Let's make sure that we check Mirror movements and vertical. That's good. Now we can select the node tool and we can grab this white handle. And now we can create any perspective look that we want. Okay, I think this looks just about right as good. And we can finalize this look by going to Path, Object path. That's awesome. And as you can see, our road has some depth and it has this beautiful gradient fill. So let me show you how we can create this effect in Inkscape. So first of all, let's make a duplicate. Let's drag this duplicate below in a straight line. Let's make it green. And let's send it back. Okay, so you can move this copy as far away as one. Okay, so now let's select both of these guys. Let's go to Extensions, generate from Path, and let's choose interpellate. So let's make sure that duplicate and paths is checked and we have 50 steps, click Apply, and click OK. And now Inkscape has created a shape that connects our two starting shapes. So that's really useful. Okay? So this big green shape is actually made out of 50 copies. So let's ungroup this big guy as hit Ungroup. And now let's union all of these copies into one solid shape. That's good. I send it to back. Okay, so now we can delete this bottom part. We don't need it anymore. And now we have this top road and we have this green shape. That's awesome. Okay? So now as you can see, this green shape is one big solid shape and we will have to actually divide the shape into different parts. So let's jumped PowerPoint. As you can see here, we have individual parts that we can select and that we can fill with different greed and folds. So let me show you how we can do that and escape. So let's just select the green shape, hold down the Shift key, select the blue shape, go to path difference. And let's go to Path break apart. And now as you can see, we can select all of these individual parts. But the same time you can see that we have lost our road. So before doing anything else, make sure that we duplicate the road. So when we have two copies of the road, and now we can go to difference. And let's go to break apart. And now we have all of these individual green parts and we have the road as well. So that's super awesome. We have created all of the parts that we need for infographic. Let me set the opacity to 100. And now we can copy everything. And let's paste it into PowerPoint. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Okay, so let's resize the shape according to our tastes. I think that looks good like this. Let's convert it to a shape. And now we can ungroup it and check if we can access the individual parts. So here's the road and here are the different parts of the depth of the road. Okay, so that was all for this lesson, ladies and gentlemen, we have all of the shapes and in the next lesson we'll be adding beautiful gradient fills and some bubbles with reflections. So I'll see you there. 11. 3D Road: Styling: Welcome back everyone. And in this lesson we will be adding some beautiful colors to our 3D road infographic. And if you want to quickly copy the formatting from one slide to another, just use Control Shift C to copy and Control Shift V to paste. So for the road, I'm using the same gradient that we have used for the hexagon and for the Pentagon's and for these individual parts of the road, I'm using two colors, tab gradients, except the last part of the road. For that we have to use three colors stops. So let me finish applying these gradients and I'll meet you in a second. Okay, and now let's select everything and hit Control G to group. Now let's add a shadow to this group as good Format Shape shadow options. Let's choose this one with the bottom direction, just like that. For the blur, Let's use 20 points. For the distance. Five points. We can increase the transparency to 80 points. And let's choose this great colon that we have decided to use for the shadows. Looking beautiful. All right, so now let's create these steps and these bubbles. And now we can actually jump to the hexagon slide and reuse one of these bubbles that we have done previously. So let's just copy them. Troll. See, Let's get back to our slides and let's hit Control V to paste. Let's remove the text. And now let me just grab the styling from this part and let's face it to our bubble. Okay. So let's position the bubble right here. And now let's add a little reflection for this bubble. So let's just go to reflection options. Let's choose this preset. And now let's adjust the settings. So for the size, Let's use 20 percent. And for the blur, Let's insert 15 points. That's good. And one more thing, let me change the direction of this gradient fill so that the yellow is on top and orange at the bottom. Thank to lose good this way. Right? And as you can see now we have to insert step 1, some texts, and we have to insert some icons. So let me just copy these icons from my previous slide to save some time. Okay, Now let's bring this icon to the center of the bubble. Can select everything and make sure everything is central line. That's beautiful. Let's group these guys into one group. And now we can copy this step one label and this small text box from our pentagon slide. Let's try it here. We can adjust the size of this label. And let's position all of these elements the way we want. Okay, now we can group all of these guys. And now let's make some copies. Is hold down the Control key and drag to make a copy. Okay, so let's adjust the position of step number 2 label and the textbox. And along the way, Let's change the fill colors. So for this guy, Let's use orange. And for the fill of this bubble, Let's copy the style from this road part and let's apply hit control shift. We apply the same style, the bubble. Let me just adjust the gradient direction. Let's make sure that we select Red Bubble. All right? And let's choose this vertical direction. Thank you. It looks beautiful. Okay. And let me update the icon as well. So let's insert this little mouse. Let's make sure that we bring this mouse to front so that it's not behind bubble. Okay? And now we can group everything back to a group. Okay. And I was pretty much the same process for the rest of the steps. So let me finish creating them and I will meet you in a second. All right, So our 3D road infographic is ready in beautiful. And in the next lesson we will be adding animations. So I'll see you there. 12. 3D Road: Adding Animations: Welcome back everyone and welcome to this lesson where we will be adding animations to our beautiful 3D road infographic. Okay, so let's start with the road. We have to add a wipe animation. So let's select the road, Let's go to animations and let's choose wipe animation direction from left. Okay, so let's make sure it's task with previous class. Make sure there is no delay, 0 seconds for the duration. Let's add two seconds. That's awesome. All right, looking good. And now we can use the animation Painter to copy the animation from the subtitle. And let's face it to all of these steps. That's awesome. Okay, and now let's make sure that the first step comes after previous case. We want the animation of the road to happen first and only then we want the steps to come in. And for the rest of the steps, Let's add a 0.22 delays. So for the 1.2nd, ten, for the 2.4th, 0, and so on. All right, and now let's check it out in the full screen. Super awesome. So congratulations, ladies and gentlemen. Now you know how you gain create this 3D wrote animated info-graphic. And at the same time I want to say super huge congratulations to all of you because you have just finished the whole class. Now you know PowerPoint and Inkscape techniques that will help you to create many more amazing animated infographics. And I encourage you to share your projects in the project section of this class. So my friends, stay healthy, stay healthy, and I'll see you on my next class.
