Thanks Dan


I need some help/advice with a presentation.


I normally use powerpoint but I have been given a presentation to use in keynote


My colleague used Keynote so that she could have timed embedded music with part of the presentation.


When I present this I may have to run of a pc so I'm wondering if I can convert this somehow - I here that conversion to ppt seperates off the music


Can you tell me the best approach please?


Thanks

Ok Martin, I can help with that. You have chosen a price for an answer, I will do all I can to give you a working answer.

Keynote can export Powerpoint/Windows friendly so that is will run in Powerpoint.

And this, Keynote '09: Creating a PowerPoint Slideshow, I know they look the same but they are different.


This is the user manual for Keynote.

That said there are problems doing this. A lot depends on what transitions and builds are used. PowerPoint cannot support many of the effects that Keynote uses.

The best way to make it compatible is to export to Quicktime, Windows has no problem playing Quicktime movies.
It will not be interactive nor editable in this format. If that is not an issue then that is the way to go.

Since your colleague has made it in Keynote then exporting to Quicktime will work best, XXXXX XXXXX opinion.

Does that help?

Thanks Dan


It certainly does help and I guess that now I have some work to read all this and try it.


If having done that I am still having problems then how do I contact you again?

Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.
Bookmark this like any site for easy return.
I am going for dinner but will be back in about an hour.
Take your time Martin.

Thanks


I had already done an export to powerpoint


Interestingly the pps file created plays the slides to music on the mac


Unfortunately the ppt file does not on a pc so I guess I need to understand how to create quicktime for the section that goes to music


Can you help with that please?

Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.
I can.
With the presentation open select Share from the menu bar.
Then sleet Export at the bottom.

It will give you something quite like that.
Click Quicktime.

Then you will have the above. The popup menus give different options, I suggest what you see in the image.
The next window after clicking Next, asks where to put the finished movie. Choose careful so you will not have to hunt for it and name it to make it easy to find if you forget where it went.

That is all there is to it.
Let me know.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Do I choose manual advance?


I want the slides and music to run automatically once started


so do I chosse the automatic option and in that case what timings?


 


and so then once I have a quicktime file do I just select 'import video ' into the slide


 


I presume that I will have to manually start the clip


Is that correct?

Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.
In your case select Fixed timing, it will then use whatever timing was set in Keynote. Then it will run on its own.
To make it play when opened use the Inspector to set that option before going to Export.

The inspector looks like this.

You can open that with Shift, Command I or from the View menu.
Why would you want to import the movie into a slide? It is a finished product ready to use on Mac and PC.

Ok, no problem, just was wondering how you were doing.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
