Ipad : Presentations with Keynote - Adding Transitions (part 1) - Magic Move

6/5/2012 9:30:35 AM
Just like other presentation programs, Keynote on iPad has a number of transition options. To practice working with transitions, start with a sample presentation, such as the one we have been working on, or create a new document with some sample slides.

Select the first slide on the left.

Tap the Transitions button (two diamonds overlapping).

Tap the blue circle to pick a transition.

Scroll through the transitions and pick one. Try Cube. The slide animates to show you the transition. It then returns.

Tap Options.

Select any options associated with the transition. For example, a Cube transition can move in any of four directions. If you don’t want to change any options, tap elsewhere to dismiss the menu.

Tap Done in the upper-right corner of the screen.

Magic Move

Another type of transition is the Magic Move. This is where objects on one slide are the same as the objects on the next, but they are in different positions. The transition between the slides moves these objects from the first position to the second.

Select a slide with several objects on it, such as three images. Tap the Transitions button.

Tap the blue button to choose a transition.

Choose Magic Move.

Unique Effects with Magic Move

The great thing about the Magic Move transition is that you can create some unique effects. For instance, in the example, I could bunch all the photos into a tiny space on the first slide and then spread them out in the second slide. The transition would make it seem like the photos are bursting out and falling into place.

Tap Yes to duplicate the current slide so that you have two identical slides from which to create the Magic Move transition.

Slides 3 and 4 are identical, and slide 4 is the current slide. Move the objects around to reposition them or resize them. The stars indicate which elements are taking part in the magic move.

Tap the third frame.

Tap the play arrow to preview the transition from slide 3 to slide 4.

Tap Done in the upper-right corner of the screen.
