Working with Special Slide Animation in a PowerPoint Presentation


Aspose.Slides Cloud API allows you to read, add, modify and delete special (master, layout) slide animation in a PowerPoint Presentation. A set of methods identical to those that work with ordinary slides can be used to do that.

The following examples demonstrate manipulating master slide animation. You can access layout slide shape paragraphs the same way, just change the value of slideType parameter accordingly.

Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up the development. An SDK takes care of a lot of low-level details of making requests and handling responses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project. Check out our GitHub repository for a complete list of Aspose.Slides Cloud SDKs along with working examples, to get you started in no time. Please check Available SDKs article to learn how to add an SDK to your project.
