Chapter 9. Using Slide Transitions and Animations

Chapter 9. Using Slide Transitions and Animations

Once you have written your presentation, pulled together all the text and graphics that will go into the presentation, and organized your slides the way you like them, you can add motion and visual appeal to your slideshow with slide transitions and animations.

Slide transitions are animated effects that occur when you switch from one slide to another. Transitions between slides can enhance the effect of your presentation and help your audience by clearly marking when you're done with a slide (and also, presumably letting them know that you're moving from one topic to the next). An object build is the generic name for an animation that occurs within the body of the slide, and Keynote 2 improvements to object builds make it easier to add animation to your slides. Some builds involve one or more elements of an object, and you can control how objects animate onto the slide and how they leave the slide. For example, you can have the parts of a graph appear on the screen one at a time (called a chart build), or make text boxes or graphics fly onto (or off of) the screen. Text builds are used for animating the way that different lines of bulleted text appear on the slide. Table builds let you animate parts of a table onto the screen.
