5 Exciting FX for Your Sports Slideshows

Diagonal Edge Dark Pan 1 – Effects Pack 6

Are you making an action-packed sports slideshow? To add some more excitement to your slideshow try using some of these awesome effects and transitions we’ve rounded up for you. They’re great for introducing a player or team, customizing team colors, stat slides, or for simply making your image cool and edgy.

ProShow has a variety of effects including a Sports & Action pack covering 15 major competitive athletic and performance categories.

1) Kinetic Spread Dark – Effects Pack 6

The kinetic spread gives your image a semi-transparent cascade from the original image for an edgy look. This effect comes in dark, light, as well as moving left or right across the screen.

2) Sports – Football USA 3 Stats – Sports & Action Pack

Are you presenting a team? Give each player a ‘Stats Card’ full of fun info including their position, goals/points scored, awards won, game wins, and anything else you want. The ‘Stats Card’ slide style effect is a completely customizable profile…from changing the default information to matching the colors to your school. For more information on customizing the colors click here.

3) Array – StylePack 5

Array also creates duplicates of the image, but it also gets spotlighted as the image is moving. Great for highlighting your favorite portrait or square image from a winning game.

4) Chevron Trail Vertical Light – Effects Pack 7

Chevrons always seem to be everywhere in sports. This transition in particular has two crossing arrows leaving a chevron patterned trail between slides. Time it perfectly and the crossing arrows also work as a very quick frame around your next image.

5) Sports – Basketball 2 Single – Sports & Action Pack

Some of the sports slide styles include a few overlays and backgrounds that allow you have a basketball, football, ice rink bankground, track field background, and more. A few more creative options to make your images stand out during your slideshow.
