If you apply a Spiral In animation to an object in PowerPoint, you may find that the spiral is somewhat wider or narrower in the published presentation than it appears in PowerPoint.

This is a known issue.  You may be able to work around it by applying a spiral Motion Path:

  1. In PowerPoint, select the object.
  2. Click the Add Effect button in the Custom Animation pane.
  3. Scroll to Motion Paths, and select More Motion Paths.
  4. Select Spiral Right or Spiral Left.
  5. Resize the animation to the desired scale.
  6. Publish your presentation.
