How to Output Keynote to Flash

Save

Included in the iLife suite of software with every newly purchased Mac, Apple Keynote is a powerful yet user friendly presentation development software. Capable of creating anything from a slideshow presentation to a multimedia interactive kiosk, Keynote is a valuable design tool. The biggest drawback of the software is it is only available for Apple computers, leaving content creators no choice in many cases but to export to a different format capable of viewing on Windows. For content to be viewed on the Internet, the best export option may be to an Adobe Flash document.

Keynote '08 and Earlier

  • Click "File" and "Save" to save your Keynote and prevent losing any changes made since your last save.

  • Click "File," then "Export" to display the Export Settings window. Click the "Flash" icon at the top of the window to display Adobe Flash output settings.

  • Enter your desired location and file name, then click to export the file.

Keynote '09 and Later

  • Click "File" and "Save" to save your Keynote and prevent losing any changes made since your last save.

  • Click "File," then "Export" to display the export settings window. Click the "QuickTime" icon at the top of the window to display QuickTime output settings.

  • Select the file size and other options desired, then click "Next." Choose a directory and file name, then click "Export."

  • Open Adobe Flash, then click "File." Hold the cursor over "Import" and click "Import Video."

  • Click "Browse" and find the file in the directory you saved to in Step 1. Click "Open" then "Continue."

Tips & Warnings

  • Keynote '09 and later do not support output to Flash. If you do not have Adobe Flash, export to a QuickTime video format, then use iMovie (included in iLife) or a ".mov to .flv" converting application. See the Resources section for information on exporting to QuickTime.
  • Some elements, such as 3D transitions, may be lost when converting to Flash.
