Video: Encoding for use in Keynote

Building video for Keynote is a really nice simple process. All we are going to do is steal one of the Apple presets that we use for the IOS. Kind of the bonus here is that you can use it in the presentation and distribute the same file to anybody who has got an iPad or an iPhone. To do this, I am going to go ahead and start up Compressor. I am going to take my video, the same video I've been using, but you can use any file you like. You can even start in Final Cut X. I'm going to use one of the Apple Device presets. And I have three here to choose from. I am going to take the largest one, because if I'm playing back off a computer through Keynote, I really don't care about how big the file is.

Encoding for use in Keynote

Building video for Keynote is a really nice simple process. All we are going to do is steal one of the Apple presets that we use for the IOS. Kind of the bonus here is that you can use it in the presentation and distribute the same file to anybody who has got an iPad or an iPhone. To do this, I am going to go ahead and start up Compressor. I am going to take my video, the same video I've been using, but you can use any file you like. You can even start in Final Cut X. I'm going to use one of the Apple Device presets. And I have three here to choose from. I am going to take the largest one, because if I'm playing back off a computer through Keynote, I really don't care about how big the file is.

I just want it to be as good looking as possible. Now I am just going to drag and drop this right up here. I am going to take a look at the Encoder tab. It's going to do a fine job with all the automatic settings. There's not much I want to change beyond saving this as a preset to make my life easier later. I will do a Save As, and I want to choose Save Setting As, Keynotes 10mbs. I do want to just reinforce this idea that you could pretty much take anything QuickTime can play and put it into Keynote.

I'm picking this setting because I know it's going to make a decent-looking picture at a decent size and do a dual purpose. It will let you distribute that same video if you choose so, at a meeting where you are showing in Keynote file. Much like the other files I do, I am going to delete the one I modified and I'll use the saved one. I am just going to drag and drop. With it set, I am going to say Submit. We are going to let it compress. It's going to build a big file, and I'm fine with that. What I'm looking for here is quality, for something that gets embedded into Keynote itself.

And now that it's done being compressed, you can see here I've got a file that looks really gorgeous, that's going to embed beautifully into Keynote. And it's going to play back, look decent, and even be distributable to the crowd at any given meeting. So, using one of the Apple Settings is a great compromise between being to pick anything and picking one that specifically can serve you two purposes in the Keynote deck.
