Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating images, part of Keynote: From Outline to Presentation.
Besides animating text, you can actually animate images in a similar way. This means that photos can be revealed. And they could either animate on the page or off. Let's come up to the beginning here, and we're going to take a look at slide transitions more in a moment. But I'm going to do a two-part animation. What I'd like to do here is have some animation occur initially. So I'm going to select this Target and I'm going to say Go ahead and Scale. So it's going to scale up.
And I'll put the duration on that a little bit slower. I like that. And we'll animate the text along with it. There we go, and let's set those two to work together automatically with build one with, a one second delay. There we go, looks good, and then we'll transition To the next slide, with a slow dissolve.
Let's slow that down. There we go. So the text disappears as the target slowly fades up to full opacity. I'll now select the next slide, grab the target and choose Build Out. This allows me to choose how it exits the slide. And in this case, I could choose options like Pop. And it goes away real quick, like it's shooting away. Or things like Scale. And I like the up there, as it looks like it dissipates.
Alright, that looks good. Let's put a transition into the next slide. I'll do a real simple one for now, and we'll explore transitions more in a second, but let's watch that combination animation. I'll press Play, and when I click to Begin. The target scaled up, and the text landed. Click Again, and they cross-fade. And then when I'm done talking about the target, I click once more. It flies out, and I can transition to the next slide.
You see, in fact, Keynote has very robust animation tools, and while you could add transitions between elements as well as slides There's still even more that can be added. Let's animate one more object then we'll take a look at Smartbuilds. I'm going to come down here and what I want to do is reveal this chart. So with it selected I'll choose Build and I'll use the Build In category and you'll see lots of options. Notice that you could choose to build things in different ways.
There was a twirl verse a pivot and you set the anchor point. Lots of choices as you work. Some of them are a bit over the top such as flame and flash bulb. But, I do find things like Flip to work quite well in a three dimensional space. And, I like how that lands. So, that feels quite good. Remember, as you're working, it's very easy to audition different animations, as well as adjust their timings.
And take advantage of the more options so you can include things like automatically billed after the transition. And remember, you can even insert delay's or connect a series of concatenated animations where one builds from the next, to the next after that. Let's go ahead and save our work and we'll move on to using smart builds.
