Apple tunes up Keynote features
[ Music ]
>> So first up, Keynote09. It's what I'm use working on
in using this presentation, so you know it's rock-solid.
[ Laughter ]
>> Keynote09. Well, one of the things we focused on in
Keynote09 is giving you some really powerful animation
tools that combined all together can help you make
incredible professional presentations, but really
easily. So what are those tools. First up, Magic Move.
Magic Move is a transition between slides, where you set
up your slides and I -- and Keynote does all the work to
move your objects between the slides. So for example,
let's say this is your first slide. You've got a bunch
of cards on it. And to make a second slide, you just
move a bunch of the cards off and you take that queen of
hearts and you make it bigger, you Tilt on an angle, you
create a reflection, you set it up the way you want, and
then use Magic Move and Keynote will be the transition
for you. So, for example, it looks like this. As the
first slide, and now the second slide. So that
animation is done by key note. Here's a second example.
Slide one, cards are all messed up, slide two, we
organized them. And asked Keynote to do a Magic Move
between them. It's really simple, really powerful. So
that's the Magic Move. Second, Object Transitions.
What you can do with Object Transitions, have a lot of
objects on your slide and ask Keynote to move from this
set to another set of objects with a bunch of powerful
transitions. So for example, the first object
transition I'm going to show is called Object Zoom.
We're going to zoom these objects from one slide to the
next and here's how it goes. Now if you look closely,
those object zooms with a different rate of speed for
the different rate of objects, and the second slide
started to show up on the first slide before it was even
done and off the screen. Something near impossible for
us to do with techniques ourselves, but automatic now in
Keynote. Here's another one that's really powerful,
what I just explained with this perspective move. Check
this out. So it's a simple, beautiful powerful
transition. Now I'm going to move these objects off the
screen with an object push up. Simple, powerful Object
Transitions that you can combine with other techniques
to make advanced presentations. And this last one.
Text transitions are really great because the simplest
thing -- doing a transition between text objects -- can
be beautiful and really powerful. I really love the
first example the team came up with. I like this one.
It's called a swing transition.
[ Applause ]
>> I like that one.
[ Applause ]
>> Read whatever you want into it. Next, a shimmer.
Energy. It's for you, Al. And here, this is called an
annogram. If you don't know what an annogram is, you
will by watching this transition. There's an annogram
transition. So great text transitions in addition to
Magic Moves and Object Transitions. You put them all
together, some really powerful tools to create your
presentation in a way that people just won't believe how
you did it. We also have animations on charts. The
charting in Keynote is the best there's ever been in a
presentation application. Beautiful charts with
incredible textures on them. And these new chart
animations bring in and bring out your charts in
incredible ways. So first up, I'm going to do a crane
move. Bring in this graph, and it's got a beautiful
metallic shine that's reflecting as it's moved into the
slide. Here comes another one. A rotate. Now we've
got etched metal. And this is a new cylinder shape
that's in Keynote09 that you can use on your charts.
Here's a third one. Rotate and grow, with a chart using
new stone texture on the chart. The last one, a zoom
through the Z axis of a pie chart using the new
beautiful wood textures as well. So we have incredible
new chart animations to make your slides just beautiful.
In addition to all of this, of course we have beautiful
themes in Keynote, and now we have even more themes
where you have these gorgeous set ups like [Inaudible]
just pick it and all your slides have this beautiful
look of the fonts and the graphics and the backgrounds.
Here's Showroom. Brushed Canvas. Venetian. So that's
just some of the new themes that you can use to make
your presentation beautiful in Keynote09. There's one
more feature, something you get extra, but it's really
cool. If you want a way to wirelessly control your
presentation we have the new Keynote Remote. So watch
this. This is an application you run on your iPhone or
[ Applause ]
>> You set it up to talk wirelessly using Wi-Fi to your
Mac, whatever Mac you're running the presentation on.
And if you have it set up in a vertical mode it shows
you your slide but any [Inaudible] notes you want. You
set it up horizontally, and you see this slide and the
next slide, and in either mode you just flick it with
your finger and that's how you advance or move backwards
or forwards through your slides.
[ Applause ]
>> The Keynote Remote is an application that will be
sold in our application store for 99 cents -- and if you
see we've already given it five star reviews, so I know
it's a big hit. So that's the Keynote Remote and those
are some of the new features in the Keynote -- new
