    Office Animation Runtime allows you to view Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 Web presentations that contain animations in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later.

    PowerPoint 2002 and later versions provide animation capabilities that significantly enhance your presentation. Among the animation features provided are the following:
    • an exciting set of new effects
    • more control over timing and synchronization
    • builds for diagrams
    • support for multiple effects simultaneously in a shape
    • more control of audio and video playback
    • a number of animation schemes

    To view presentations saved in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that take advantage of these new animation features, you must have Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later and have Office Animation Runtime installed. Without these, animations will not run and the Web presentation may not play back as the author intended. For more information about using animation features in your Web presentation, read Animate Your PowerPoint 2002 Web Presentation.
