If too much zooming and panning some people complain of motion sickness

To look at the big picture/details
To move back and forth and interact with the audience
Do not overuse zoom and panning
Place objects close together to smooth transitions and use small rotations
Both PowerPoint and Prezi have their place
PowerPoint has some advantages for the medium to low business presenter, especially because at 8% of features it is very easy to use. Who cares? Almost all PowerPoint presentations are identical...
If you want to create an interactive experience for your audience and a “wow” factor you should consider Prezi. Or to use PowerPoint at 100%
My recommendation is to consult a presentation specialist and find out what is the best solution for your particular presentation. Don’t forget, you can mix PPT and Prezi or look for another presentation tool
