Exporting Presentations as a Flash Movie

New to Keynote 2 is the ability to export files in Macromedia Flash format. This allows the presentation to be viewed in any Web browser that supports Flash (that is, virtually all browsers), as well as the Macromedia Flash Player 7. The presentation will appear in the Flash Player at full size, and will act as an interactive slideshow. Because the Flash format is a bit more efficient than Quick Time, the file size will be smaller. The drawback is that the presentation will not have the same fidelity as the QuickTime version. Slide builds will usually work fine, but Flash can't replicate all of Keynote's transitions correctly, embedded QuickTime movies won't play, and custom bullets will not appear the way they do in Keynote or QuickTime. Flash playback may be better in some situations, however, so it is an option you should consider.

To export a presentation as a Flash movie

1.
Open the Keynote file that you wish to export to Flash.

2.
Choose File > Export.

The Export sheet slides down from the top of the document window.

3.
Click Flash.

4.
Click Next.

A Save sheet appears, prompting you for the name of the exported Flash movie and where you want to put it on your hard disk.

5.
Click Export.

The Flash file is saved.
