Remember that a transition determines how a slide enters, and how the previous slide exits. So if (for example) you don’t want slide 2 to have an exit effect, you must remove the transition from slide 3.

Tip: You can tell which slides have a transition effect applied by looking for the transition icon in the Thumbnail pane.
