Applying Slide Transitions

Slide transitions are a good way to add visual interest when you change slides. They also serve as a cue for the audience to reinforce the fact that you are changing slides; if someone isn't paying particularly close attention, that flash of motion will often help them refocus on your slideshow.

All slide transitions involve an animated effect where the first, old slide (which I will refer to in this chapter as Slide A) is replaced by the second, new slide (you guessed it, Slide B). Keynote provides 23 built-in transition styles, plus None. Eighteen of them are 2-D transitions, where one slide replaces another in the same plane. For example, Slide A can dissolve into Slide B. Five of the transitions are 3-D transitions, where Slide A is replaced by Slide B with an effect that appears to occur out of the plane of the slides. An example of this is the Flip effect, where the slide spins 180 degrees on its vertical or horizontal axis, revealing the next slide. All of the transitions are detailed in Table 9.1.
