Represents a rotation effect for an AnimationBehavior object.


Use the RotationEffectproperty of the AnimationBehavior object to return a RotationEffect object. The following example refers to the rotation effect for a given animation behavior.


Use the By, From, and Toproperties of the RotationEffect object to affect an object's animation rotation. The following example adds a new shape to the first slide and sets the rotation animation behavior.

Sub AddRotation()

    Dim shpNew As Shape
    Dim effNew As Effect
    Dim aniNew As AnimationBehavior

    Set shpNew = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes _
        .AddShape(Type:=msoShape5pointStar, Left:=0, _
        Top:=0, Width:=100, Height:=100)

    Set effNew = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).TimeLine.MainSequence _
        .AddEffect(Shape:=shpNew, effectId:=msoAnimEffectCustom)
    Set aniNew = effNew.Behaviors.Add(msoAnimTypeRotation)

    With aniNew.RotationEffect
        'Rotate 270 degrees from current position
        .By = 270
    End With

End Sub
