Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using text effect transitions, part of Keynote: Builds, Transitions, Animations, and Effects.
…Earlier, I showed you builds to reveal text content, but if your slide…only contains text, a very quick way to animate text is the use of transitions.…Let me show you a couple of options that I really like.…In this case, I have a title slide and I'm just going into a couple more…pieces of text, so using Text Effect Transitions,…the drama of a reveal can help build excitement.…I'll just click here to hand an effect.…Note, I don't have the text box selected, so it shows me transitions.…
There are three text effects.…So you have a shimmer transition, which picks up the color of the object.…You have a sparkle transition, which is more of a pixie…dust style and a swing, which I like quite a bit.…And swing lets you adjust the content, so it will transition from one to the next.…And that works well, you can adjust the duration…as you see fit and it has a little…simple 3D emphasis that's kind of cool with a quick…switch over there in the middle of the flip.…However, while you only see three text effects,…remember, object effects are going to work as well.…
