By default, animation effects are numbered in the order in which they are applied to slide objects. You might need to reorder your animations mainly because you may have more than one animated object on a slide, and re-sequencing of animations as they happen in relation to each other may provide a better result. Or you may just want some animations to happen before other animations. Also, there are logical reasons to reorder animations since typically entrance and exit animations need to be the first and last animations for any slide object. PowerPoint’s Reorder option for animations lets you play with their sequencing.
