    Beamer Itemize Font Size

    I am using the Beamer class to create a presentation in LaTeX. I would like to modify the font sizes of the itemize list items but I cannot seem to do so.

    For example, I would like the itemize items to be \Large, subitems \large, subsubitems \small, etc.

    Searching through Google and the Beamer manual, I came across \setbeamerfont, but I cannot seem to get it working.

    I have tried: \setbeamerfont{itemize subitem}{size=\small}, \setbeamerfont{itemize subbody}{size=\small}

    Am I doing something wrong with \setbeamerfont or is there another way to accomplish this?

    Thanks.

    \begin{Frame}
    \frametitle{What we need to know}
    \begin{itemize} \itemsep10pt
    \pause
    \item \huge Fixed Point Theory
    \pause
    \item Complex Analytic Functions
    \pause
    \item Quadratic Fractal Geometry
    \pause
    \item Computer Plotting
    \end{itemize}

    \end{Frame}

    That's a frame pulled from one of my talks.

    Notice the \huge after the first \item

    If you change that it changes the font size of every \item in the slide after it.
    If you want some large and some small put \small or whatever in where you want it. (i.e. after the \item)

    Thanks for the help, but you solution is not exactly what I'm looking for. I should have been more specific.

    I would like to set default font sizes for the different \item levels in a .sty file. I am creating a presentation template that will be reused so I want to avoid having to manually change the font size everytime.

    Thanks.
