Trying to get a Keynotes presentation into Quick time...

by Maple_Mom / December 21, 2009 12:43 PM PST

And I'm having NOTHING but issues. I've done it successfully once before, but now I can't get it to work. Either the slide show will convert with NO sound track, or the sound track converts in full but only the first slide does... so the first slide loops over and over for the duration of the sound track.

What the heck am I doing wrong????

I solved it though. Apparently, you have to "record" the presentation before you export it. The minute I did that, I had NO troubles exporting it into quick time.

Still getting used to my Mac. I LOVE it for sure... just figured out how to use Garage Band to combine 2 tracks for the slide show... and figure out the timing so the songs ended at the same time as the slide show.

Thank you for the replies though. I've bookmarked that site for the next time!
