Sample Presentation

View a sample presentation and see some of what you can do in a presentation with Keynote.

Are you curious on what a Keynote presentation looks like? Take a look at this video where I show a short presentation created in Keynote. As I go through the presentation, I go over some of the features Keynote has when building a presentation. I show you where transitions are incorporated within a presentation, where build ins for objects appear, and more. View a basic presentation built with Keynote to get an idea of what you can do in this videof or Keynote for the Mac.

Welcome to Tutor for Keynote on the Mac. In this first video, what we’re going to do is take a look at a small sample presentation. So then you can see what you can do or some of the basics of what you can do with Keynote, I’ll highlight some of the features that are used. When we look at this presentation. Let’s take a look at this presentation. Let’s go to my Mac. Let’s go and open up Keynote. So I just go down to my dock here and I have Keynote. And then I’m going to open up this presentation here my to obtain presentation, we have a local festival here in Holland, to obtain minutes held every May. So I just created a pretty simple presentation highlighting some of the events and some of the things that took time has to offer, I believe it’s about 15 slides might even be less than that. So let’s take a look at this and see what we have. I double click on it. It’s opening up, and we can see all of the slides over here on the left. It does have a live video.

So we have a little message here saying that it needs to enable the camera, I just click on Manage here. And I can enable the camera I’ll talk about live video in a little bit. I’m just going to click on done here, we won’t enable it. And then we can also see all of the objects. And then we have the slides. So let’s see what this presentation looks like to do that what I do is I just click on play. When I click on play, what it’s going to do is start with my first slide. So let’s go ahead and click on Play. Play on this Mac, I’m going to play the slideshow. And there it is. So this is our first slide. Pretty simple. Now when I go to the next slide, it’s going to go through a transition a transition is what happens between our slides. So now it just flipped around, there’s our transition. This particular slide we have the title across the top and some text and then a photo across the bottom. I’m going to hit the right arrow again. And it’s going to go to the next slide through another transition. Now this particular slide, it has bullet points and when I hit on the right arrow or click on the right arrow, these bullet points are going to come in one by one. These are called buildings I’m building this bullet point in, we can have it come in all as one or individually like what I’m doing here. When it is done, it’s going to go to the next slide or transition. And now we’re going to look at the parades, we do have a few different parades here.

Now this is built with a table. Think of Numbers a spreadsheet table. So here we have our header across the top and I’m building it in. There’s our next row and our final row. So we can build in a table that we’ve created, and have it come in in different rows. Let’s go to the next slide through a transition. This is how many events we have by day. This is a chart we could include charts as well. And I’m going to build this in. So here we are Saturday nine events. Monday, we have eight events. So I just keep going or I should say Sunday, I just keep going. And we can see all the different events here. A couple of these events are parades. So when I tap on the right arrow, we can see we have the Volks parade on saturday. And then we also have a kinder parade on Thursday. Now we can also have build outs, you can see that these built in individually this chart built in individually in the table built in individually. Well, we can also have build outs. I don’t have them implemented here. But I could just build these out as well. So buildings, transitions and build outs. Let’s go to the next slide. This next slide here we have animation. So now when I hit the right arrow, we’re going to see we have a star here, this is where Holland is located. And then when I hit the right arrow, again, we have a little animation of a plane coming in and landed in Holland. So we can even do animation or have animation follow a path.

Our next slide contains a movie. So what I’m able to do is press on this or hit the right arrow, and it’s going to start playing that movie. We can also include audio including background audio. So what I could do is I could have audio playing throughout the slideshow as I’m presenting it in the background. I’m going to tap on the right arrow to go to the next slide here. This particular slide has live cameras so you can see me here I’m actually recording. Here’s my microphone. We have the green screen behind me. So this is our live camera. Tap on the right arrow. Now I’m just going to look through a few photos here. This is the clothesline transition And we’re going to start wrapping it up here.

With a magic move, I think there’s one more photo here. There we have tulip time festival. I’m going to use the magic move to transition between the next two slides with this slide in the next slide, that is a magic move transition. And I’ll talk about that, and another lesson. But basically, what you can do is you can have two slides, you duplicate the first slide, you move some objects around on the second slide, and then Keynote will animate that. So that’s a look at a sample presentation, as you can see, can do some pretty cool stuff with it.

We have our transitions that happen between the slides and you have a number of different transitions. We have buildings and build out so we can build in charts, we can build in tables, we can build our charts, build out tables. We also have videos, we can add audio, we can add a live camera feed. Those are some of the things that we’re going to be looking at when we go through this tutorial on Keynote. But at first just wanted to show you what you can do with the basic presentation. So that’s a look at a basic presentation or basic slideshow in Keynote on the Mac.
