I know how to grey out points so it greys out all except one bullet point and then keep going to other bullet points. But that isn't what I want.

What I want is for the bullet point to never be black, so that there is only a single great bullet point. For example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item This is gray
\item This is gray
\item This is black
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

In other words, I want only this slide to display:

enter image description here

There should be no slides before or after this.

You can use <0> (together with \setbeamercovered{transparent} as in this answer).

\documentclass{beamer}
\setbeamercovered{transparent}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item<0> This is gray
\item<0> This is gray
\item This is black
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

From beamer manual, page 194

\setbeamercovered{transparent}

This command allows you to specify in a quite general way how a covered item should be rendered. You can even specify different ways of rendering the item depending on how long it will take before this item is shown or for how long it has already been covered once more. The transparency effect will automatically apply to all colors, except for the colors in images. For images there is a workaround, see the documentation of the pgf package.

\setbeamercovered{⟨options⟩}

transparent=⟨opaqueness⟩ causes covered text to be typeset in a “transparent” way. By default, this means that 85% of the background color is mixed into all colors or that the ⟨opaqueness⟩ of the text is 15%. You can specify a different ⟨percentage⟩, where 0 means “totally transparent” and 100 means “totally opaque.” Unfortunately, this value is kind of “specific” to every projector. What looks good on your screen need not look good during a presentation.

  • Yes, I know, that is what I used with my examples. The problem is that the only way I know how to use it is with [<+>] or whatever, which causes a bunch of other slides that I don't want. I want a single slide with specific bullet points greyed out.
