Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting movie files, part of Keynote 6 Essential Training.
With Keynote you're not limited to inserting still images. If you want to insert movies you can do that as well. And that's what we're going to do as we continue working with our project here, our new hire orientation. And if you skip to this movie open up KE Orientation 0503. We're going to go to slide ten, the second last slide in our presentation. We're going to insert a new slide here, actually a couple. Click the plus sign at the bottom of the navigator, and we'll first start by inserting a section slide, so we'll give that a click where it says double click to edit, we'll do that.
Highlight what's in there, and type right over it in caps, MARKETING. There we go. Now we'll click the plus sign one more time. This time we'll insert a slide that gives us a title across the top. And lots of space down below for our movie. Give that a click double click to edit the title. And here we're going to type in video PSA. Public service announcement. Click down below that's where it's going to go. Now if you have used iPhoto for example and you've downloaded your pictures and movies, all of your media to iPhoto, you'll be able to find it using the Media browser.
Just give it a click on the tool bar, go to the Movie section and you'll see it there. There's the KinetEco PSA. Now if you haven't done that, no problem, you can still insert it by going to the Insert menu. Down to Choose and then navigating to our Exercise files and in the Media folder that's where you're going to find our KinetEco PSA. It's a QuickTime movie. We can insert QuickTime movies, MOV files. We can insert anything that you can play in iTunes. Pretty much the only format that doesn't work here is AVI, so let's give it a click.
We can preview it here by clicking the play button. >> It's happening all over the world. >> Click pause if that's the one you want. Click insert in the bottom right-hand corner. So it's going to be inserted in the middle of our slide. And it is an object with handles around the outside so if we wanted to, we can resize it. Let's make it a little bit bigger. We'll click and drag that corner. Now we can move it from anywhere inside, using the guides that show up. Let's get it centered on our slide. There we go. And release. Alright, now at this point, if we want to preview it from here.
We just go inside, click, click the play button. It's happening all over the world. >> Click again to pause. To really see what it's going to look like so far, without any additional formatting, we can go to the play button on the tool bar. Now, in this case, you can see there's no play button showing up. It's just a matter of clicking anywhere inside or outside to play the video. It's happening over the world. Every day people are harnessing the power of the sun, and it's literally. >> So notice when you move over the image as it's playing, we get this bar across the bottom where we can pause it, play it again, and we also get the count down and a volume slider.
So this is what people are going to see when they view the presentation. Let's press escape to return to editing the slide itself. We'll deselect by clicking in the background. That's all there is to adding a movie file, to one of your slides here in Keynote.
