Video: Introducing Magic Move

One of the most talked about new features in Keynote '09 is the slide transition called Magic Move where you can set Keynote to animate motion between slides with hardly any effort. Let me demonstrate how this works. I am going to go over here to this first slide. Notice here this is the slide we use when we're branching off and to talk about different parts of the motorcycle and we're coming up on the part where we're talking about brakes. So this is the opening slide for this part of the presentation. I am just going to walk you through it here a little bit. In the next slide we'll talk a little about the technical part of the brakes and after that we'll talk about how there are different brakes and then finally we'll go back to our slide where we'll move on to the next subject.

Introducing Magic Move

One of the most talked about new features in Keynote '09 is the slide transition called Magic Move where you can set Keynote to animate motion between slides with hardly any effort. Let me demonstrate how this works. I am going to go over here to this first slide. Notice here this is the slide we use when we're branching off and to talk about different parts of the motorcycle and we're coming up on the part where we're talking about brakes. So this is the opening slide for this part of the presentation. I am just going to walk you through it here a little bit. In the next slide we'll talk a little about the technical part of the brakes and after that we'll talk about how there are different brakes and then finally we'll go back to our slide where we'll move on to the next subject.

So one really good way to maintain continuity for your audience is to give them a sense where they're at in the presentation. There is nothing like a photograph to help them keep themselves around it and help you keep their attention where you want it to be. So what I want to do is I want to have this brake image follow these different slides until we come back and move on to the next subject and Magic Move helps me do that. That's real simple to do. First of all I'm going to click in here onto this slide and I'm going to select out this photograph. Now this particular slide is set up that these photographs are auto master. So I'm going to double-click on that image and we get this dialog that asks us if we want to edit the master, and we do. So I'll click on there. And that brings up the master slide for that particular slide and I'm going to select the photograph and do Ctrl+Click+Copy. I'll move this shelf back up and now I'll go back to editing Slide number 2 and simply do a Ctrl+Click+Paste and there is my image.

I am going to take that over now and I want the image to end up over here. I want it to be a little bit smaller. I'm going to hold down the Command key while hovering over this corner and give it a little bit of rotation as I click and hold, like so. I'm going to go into my Inspector and I'm going to give it a Picture Frame stroke. That's about right. Now let me go back to Slide 1, back to my Inspector, my Slide Inspector, under Transitions. I want to make sure I have Magic Move selected. What Magic Move will do is it will take any object that's common to both slides and animate the difference between those objects automatically. Let me just demonstrate that.

I have Slide 1 selected. I'll press Play. That slide builds in. I'm going go hit the advance key. Notice that just by telling on Slide 2 that I wanted my picture up there in that corner rotated with a little bit of a border, Magic Move took care of all the rest. Everything else, every other difference between Slide 1 and Slide 2 came in as it dissolved. But it's a nice, really effective, fast way to create an animation. It's remarkably easy. So now on Slide 3 we're still talking about brakes. So I want to keep this element going. So I'll copy this again, go on to Slide 3, Ctrl+Click+Paste and when this slide comes in I want this image to be over here. It may be now a little bit bigger. I'll rotate it around, slightly more and drop it like so.

I'll make sure on Slide 2 that I have Magic Move selected as my transition, which I do. On Slide 3 we want to go back then to Slide 4 so that we can tell our audience we're coming from brakes and we're about to go in to Electronics and Innovation. Now as it turns out, because Slide 1 and Slide 4 are using a common master, Keynote is maintaining a relationship. It understands that this photograph is the same across all of these four now. So the Magic Move connection will still be there. So let's start from the top and I'll show you how it all works.

So Slide 1 builds in, hit the advance key and animated to Slide 2, hit the advance key again and animated to Slide 3 and hit advance again, it brings you back to 4 and then the built for Electronics and Innovation built-in automatically. So you can see with just a few steps Magic Move makes animating objects so easy, you might find that you'll be using it a lot when you're thinking about telling your story and keep in mind there is no rule that says you have to convey an idea just on one slide. So think about how you can take advantage of Magic Move slide transitions between multiple slides.
