Does Keynote support exporation to iDVD?

I mean, that would be a really good way to present them in a high quality manner. Like, you could use the forward button to go forward through the presentation!





makes sense, no? But, does it happen like that?

    That would be really great! However, I don't think that it does, otherwise, you would have thought steve jobs would've said so during his keynote speech at macworld

    Send Apple feedback. That's a good idea.

    It seems it would work if you exported from Keynote via Quicktime, right?

    Do a search on the Apple Discussion forum for Keynote.

    Someone has developed a way of actually doing this...

    (I think the link should work)

    I'll save you a click: [quote][Robert Worne] I ran a bunch of tests trying to get the best out of these two apps, and I think this is it! I cannot get any better output than this.

    I was surprised that iDVD really wanted 640x480, I was absolutely certain that it really wanted NTSC resolution (same as a DV file) for best results. Oh well, live and learn.



    Test scenario:

    I used the Sample Presentation.key keynote file.



    Choose File-&gt;Export

    Select "QuickTime"

    Click "Next"

    Set Playback Control to "Self-playing movie"

    Under Formats choose "Custom"

    Set:

    Video: Full Size

    640x480 pixels

    Click "Settings"

    Set compression to "Animation"

    Set Depth to "Millions of Colors"

    Set Quality to "Best"

    Set Frames per Second to "29.97"

    Click "OK"

    Name your file and click "Export"



    The video file that results will import absolutely beautifully into iDVD and the resulting image will be fantastic. Just be sure to watch the overscan, under "Advanced" in iDVD, be sure to select "Show TV-Safe area" to see what part of the slide will be visible on a TV. Also watch your font sizes, the small "Tips:" in the upper left-hand corner are a good example of what to look out for. <hr></blockquote>
