Question: Exporting Keynote to Movie

I'm looking at some of the discussions regarding exporting Keynote presentations to movies. I'm not familiar with Keynote (I'm a PowerPoint user ... sorry) so I have two basic questions.


1. Can I set the timing of slide animations and the slide transitions so that when I export to a movie it'll play with those timings? It seems that I should be able to do this 'manually' by rehearsing timings and saving, but, can I specify exact timings, for example stay on this slide for 2s, then on this slide for 2.7s, then on this slide for 5.3s?


2. Can I export my presentation as a .mp4 file? It seems as if Apple love to force usage of .mov, but this is problematic for the rest of the world. I'm hoping that there are more output file options.


Thanks!

Answer:
Answer:

Most users prefer the "record slide show" feature as its simple and quick to use. Play > Record Slideshow

Each slide can be set individually for effect and timing, it is accurate but takes more skill and time to set up.


Files exported to QuickTime use the m4v filetype, except Prores option which are .mov files.

(m4v is Apple's version of an mp4 file)

File > Export > QuickTime

Thanks. I could see that the Play > Record Slideshow was an option, but didn't know if it was possible to be more accurate.


As it turns out, I didn't realise that Keynote was free. So, I downloaded and started playing with it and was able to answer my own question.


Still, I very much appreciate you taking the time to respond.
