Paul Woods, writer of “ESPI at work” has posted a great article on using Keynote as an app or website prototyping app. He highlights 2 great websites that sell collections of Keynote files filled with UI elements you can use to mock up apps.
Tom Negrino, author of several books on Keynote (as well as many other wonderful books) has alerted us to a hilarious new video on youtube that exemplifies every bad presentation ever given. If attended any sort of business meeting in the last 5-10 years that included a projected presentation, you been there. Heck, you may have even GIVEN a presentation like this (ED: I know I have, complete with botched Apple software demo and a bad case of the nervous shakes). Created by the folks from growingleaders.com we present to you: Every Presentation Ever: Communication FAIL
The Unofficial Apple Weblog today posted an article on how to use Keynote in place of Apple Motion in a pinch. We’ve been doing this for several years and have heard of other video editors who also use Keynote for doing titles or quick animation sequences. This brings up a good point…will Apple ever release a title and animation program as easy to use as Keynote? We hope so.
Apple today updated all 3 iWork apps for the iPad. New features include printing and a new presenter view for Keynote.
Blogger and Art Director at Christ Community Church in Nebraska, Robert Murphy has posted some incredible animations that were done completely in Keynote
Reader Aleks Enne sent us a link to a new Keynote file he created for users to build iPad app mockups using Keynote. Since the file isn’t an official “theme” you don’t have to find a way to install it, just sync it to your iPad and open it with Keynote.
Though we haven’t gotten our hands on an iPad yet, we know many of our readers are starting to test out Keynote on their brand new iPads. We thought we’d post some useful links to articles and resources around the web that might help get some of your questions answered (before or after buying an iPad).
TUAW.com has posted a nice tip on faking a transition from video to a slide so that the video doesn’t pause in the transition. This tip only works with object builds, since you’re basically building in a static copy of the next slide, but it’s a pretty good work around to Keynote’sÂ insistenceÂ on pausing the video during a normal transition.
Yesterday’s MacBreak Studio episode covers what they call “Making a ‘wired’ QuickTime” using Keynote. This is a basic tutorial on using Keynote to add hyperlinks to a QT Movie. You can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes, or simply download the h264 video from their site. Check out the video on the PixelCorp.com
