…One of the easiest ways to animate inside of Keynote is with Magic Move.…Essentially, you put the same object on two slides,…and any movement between the slides become key frames.…Think of it this way.…If on slide one, I position the object here and then on slide two I…position it on here, Keynote is going to…smoothly animate the object from here to here.…Well, that sounds pretty basic until you realize that it's not just position.…Scale, rotation, opacity, all sorts of properties.…
Let's take a quick look at two examples of Magic Move and…how you can use it as an animation technique in your presentation.…In this case, I'm going to do a simple transition between three slots.…You'll note that initially here, I have two bars, these are…just made using the Shape tools, and a logo that I imported.…For the second slide, I've rotated those bars and adjusted them.…If you look in the Format inspector here.…You could check the actual arrangement and you see…that the bar here is 1,920 by 100 pixels.…
While over here the bar was 308 by 1,097 pixels.…
