Say we will show on this slide that we have three objects and this large object, a container here, and the next slide we will show that they enter the container. So I'm going to choose a slide here, I'm going to duplicate the slide. Command D will do it. On the duplicate I will move these objects in here. So I'll post it and put this one here and see this here, now I can get a simple transition. Go from one slide to the next. Then I choose the first slide. I click on Animate, and I add an effect, says Resolution. creates something that is not very exciting. I am on this first slide, I go to the next slide and it gets over to it. I can do all kinds of things, some cloths and the like.
But a much better effect would be to actually have things anime so they move into it. So I'm going to switch from Solve and I'm going to choose Magic Move which is kind in a category by itself. It shows you exactly what it looks like. So if I run it now and I go from one slide to the next, you can see them moving there.
Now you can do this also in several steps. e, if i really wanted to show that these items were dropped there, i can make another copy here. So I'll duplicate this slide here. In the middle slide instead of being in, I'll move them up. So they should move from there to there and then drop in. I have to go and make a Magic Move for this too. It's done on the first slide. So you don't have to do it on the second slide. This will move it straight up there, and then when I go to the next slide they fall down.
Now I can make this happen in a floating movement if I change this Magic Move here, the one in the middle. You can see to the right I have a start transition on click. I just want to say it is done automatically and without delay. So now it is not waiting for this slide. So I go to the first slide here. I want to move on. Take my hands off the keyboard and it will let in automatically. So that's what I want to do. You can also play with the acceleration. So right now it's easier and easier. When I have two parts here, I might want to lighten the first and lighten the other. It creates a more fluid one. Or I could easily say No acceleration on one and it would move in and make the animation in a linear way.
So you can use this for all kinds of things. Some things to be aware of are the objects being the same items. So it is important to duplicate the slide so that these three objects here, when I duplicate them, are the same three objects here and the same three objects there. If I were to recreate them, make a new slide and add three new figures to it, even if they looked exactly, they would be different shapes and you wouldn't get that animation. So always duplicate the slides before using Magic Move.
A cool thing that Magic Move does is if an item is different, whether it is new or if it is removed, it actually uses only one dish. So if I were to put another object here as a piece of text and maybe not have it on the other and on the third one has a new piece of text, instead of being confused by that element that is there on the first, not on it others, and a new element on the third, it will just fade it. So you can see the word Start there, you can see it fades very well, and then the new text goes in. It works gracefully with objects that are new or have been removed from the slides as well.
Of course even if you do not give presentations this kind of animation can be very valuable if you make videos because of course you can export as a movie and make a video. So if you make a video with some clips of yourself and things in it and you want to make an animation in the middle using characters and text and everything, you can do it in Keynote and export it as a video and then import it into iMovie to use in the middle of your movie project.
