Okay I have a quicktime movie that I am using as the background of my slide show. I have text fly in and out over the movie. I can get the movie to loop when I view the slideshow but when I try to export the slideshow to Quicktime the Background quicktime movie only plays once and then stops. I want the quicktime background to continue to loop when I render the entire slideshow to quicktime. And yes I have checked the loop box in the quicktime tab in the inspector window. Please Help!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Is it one slide with the movie bkgd and text flying by as builds in & out, or multiple slides with the movie bkgd and builds in and out for the text? Perhaps you can make it the latter and just repeat the bkgd for each slide; alternatively, stitch together enough copies of the movie prior to importing it to run for the full time of the presentation.

    Yes, it is one slide with layered builds going in and out. The first 2 times I tried this it worked then on the same keynote file it stopped working on the second render and now it does not work even if I create a new file.

    While I do understand that I could make my slideshow, time it and loop the movies together in iMovie I do not feel that I should have to render two separate things loosing quality on each render because of the time aspect.

    Why would it work and all of a sudden stop? I should not have to go through iMovie making loops and rendering things twice when Keynote should be working.
