Represents a collection of Sequence objects. Use a Sequence object to add, find, modify, and clone animation effects.

Use the InteractiveSequences property of the TimeLine object to return a Sequences collection. Use the Add method to add an interactive animation sequence. The following example adds two shapes on the first slide of the active presentation and sets interactive effect for the star shape so that when you click the bevel shape, the star shape is be animated.

Sub AddNewSequence()

    Dim shp1 As Shape

    Dim shp2 As Shape

    Dim interEffect As Effect

    Set shp1 = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.AddShape _

        (Type:=msoShape32pointStar, Left:=100, _

        Top:=100, Width:=200, Height:=200)

    Set shp2 = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.AddShape _

        (Type:=msoShapeBevel, Left:=400, _

        Top:=200, Width:=150, Height:=100)

    With ActivePresentation.Slides(1).TimeLine.InteractiveSequences.Add(1)

        Set interEffect = .AddEffect(shp2, msoAnimEffectBlinds, _


        interEffect.Shape = shp1

    End With

End Sub
