Keynote for iPad –Animating Photos on a Slide Part 6

Did you miss part 5? Keynote for iPad – Animate a Chart, Graph, or Table on a Slide

Animating photos on a slide is an easy process with Keynote. There are two major approaches you can employ. You can use builds to add or remove elements from a slide. You can also use the Magic Move transition to create more elaborate animations.

Let's explore the build process.

1. Tap the animate button . Keynote prompts you to select a slide or object.

2. Tap a photo on the Canvas that you want to animate.
iPad_Sample_16
Buttons appear near the object, indicating any build effect that has already been applied. If no build effect has been applied, both the build in and build out buttons are labeled “None.”

Design Tip
Be sure your photos are high enough resolution. You'll typically want to size them so they are double the size of your design canvas. For Keynote on the iPad, make sure your pictures are at between 2,000–4,000 pixels wide. This will give you flexibility to size or zoom an image.

3. You can now choose to add an effect that reveals (build in) or removes (build out) the chart. Tap the “Build in” or “Build out” button, depending on how you'd like the chart to move onto or off of the slide. The Build In or Build Out window appears.

4. Tap the name of an effect from the Build In or Build Out window. You can scroll to choose from any of 13 effects for chart or graph builds.
iPad_Sample_17
Once you choose an effect, a preview animation plays automatically. You can click the play button in the Build In or Build Out window to repeat the preview.

5. Once you've selected an animation in the Build In or Build Out window, you can customize it.
  • To change the duration of a build, tap the Options button at the bottom of the Build In or Build Out window. You can then drag the duration slider to adjust the speed of the animation.
    • Many effects in the Build In window have additional options such as direction or Up and Down choices.
iPad_Sample_18
• To specify when a build starts, tap the Options button at the bottom of the Build In or Build Out window. On Tap begins the animation when you tap the slide. After Transition lets you set a time interval with the Delay slider.You may need to scroll in the window to see all options.

Changing the Order of Builds

As you add multiple builds to a slide, you'll notice that they have numbers that indicate their build order on the slide. The build in numbers are yellow and the build out numbers are black.
The default numbering is based on the order that you added the animations. You have complete control however and can reorder things, as you like.
  1. Select any object on the canvas that you've applied a build to.
    2 Tap the animate button in the toolbar.
    3 Tap an existing Build In or Build Out button.
    4 In the Build In or Build Out window, tap the Order button. The numbers on the slide and in the window indicate the order of animation.
    5 In the Build Order window, touch and hold the right end of an item. You can now drag it to a new position.
iPad_Sample_19
If you see three yellow-colored dots on the upper-right corner of a slide thumbnail (in the slide navigator) it means that a build has been applied to a slide.
Interleaving Builds

In Keynote, you can interleave animation elements, so that multiple events take place concurrently. For example, you can have a block of text and a photo animate concurrently. You can change the order in which objects move on and off a slide at any time, even interspersing

In order to interleave a build, you must have more than one Build animation applied.
  1. Select any object on the canvas that you've applied a build to.
    2 Tap the animate button in the toolbar.
    3 Tap an existing Build In or Build Out button.
    4 In the Build In or Build Out window, tap the Options button.
    5 Choose one of the following options to link two animations together.

iPad_Sample_20
  • With Build # – Let's two builds happen at the same time. You can also set a delay for the second object with the Delay slider.
    After Build # – Let's you create a hierarchical relationship. One build occurs immediately after the other finishes. Again, you can set a delay for the second object with the Delay slider.

To preview the animation, click the Play button in the Build In or Build Out window.

Keynote for iPad – Creating Builds to Reveal Text Part 4

Did you miss part 3? Keynote for iPad – Designing with Magic Move

The most common style of animation on a slide is a build, an animation that sequentially reveals the slide content. When used appropriately, builds can focus your audience’s attention on the current topic.

Builds are often used to reveal lines of text as you click. Some effects animate the entire text box at once; others break up the text by word or character before animating. All text animation is controlled within the Inspector window.

Design Tip
The key with text animation is to find a tasteful balance of animation that enhances the audience's concentration (as opposed to distracting them).

To Add a Text Build

Keynote offers several builds that can be applied to text. These range from subtle transitions that work well for bullet points to dramatic reveals for title slides.
1. Tap the animate button . Keynote prompts you to select a slide or object.

2. Tap the text on the Canvas that you want to animate.
iPad_Sample_09
Buttons appear near the object, indicating any build effect that has already been applied.

If no build effect has been applied, both the build in and build out buttons are labeled “None.”

3. You can now choose to add an effect that reveals (build in) or removes (build out) the text. Tap the “Build in” or “Build out” button, depending on how you'd like the text to move onto or off of the slide. The Build In or Build Out window appears.
iPad_Sample_10

4. Tap the name of an effect from the Build In or Build Out window. You can scroll to choose from any of 21 effects for text builds.
Once you choose an effect, a preview animation plays automatically. You can click the play button in the Build In or Build Out window to repeat the preview.

Customizing a Text Build


While the build animations are ready to use, Keynote does allow you to change the speed, timing, and order of a text build. These options give you greater control over your presentation.

Once you've selected an animation in the Build In or Build Out window, you can customize it.
  • To change the duration of a build, tap the Options button at the bottom of the Build In or Build Out window. You can then drag the duration slider to adjust the speed of the animation.
iPad_Sample_11
  • To specify when a build starts, tap the Options button at the bottom of the Build In or Build Out window. On Tap begins the animation when you tap the slide.
    After Transition lets you set a time interval with the Delay slider. You may need to scroll in the window to see all options.

  • To build a text block in segments, you can click the Delivery button. Depending upon how you've formatted your text, you'll see choices like All at Once, By Paragraph, or By Bullet.
iPad_Sample_12
The Delivery option is only available after you've applied a build in or build out effect.

Using the Cell Pattern Effect in After Effects

One of the easiest ways to create seamless backgrounds is to use effects within After Effects. The Cell Pattern effect generates a loopable pattern based on cellular noise algorithms. With 12 patterns to choose from and several controls over size, contrast, and speed, you'll find the effect very versatile

1. Choose a method from the Cell Pattern pop-up menu. Some patterns are sharp and angular while others are more organic. Experiment as you can change methods at any time.
Figure 7_6
Here are three of the twelve cell patterns. From left to right, Plates, Pillow, and Tubular.

2. Adjust the contrast of the effect to create the desire pattern. You can use the Invert checkbox to swap values of luminance. The Contrast/Sharpness slider modifies the overall detail level of the cells.

3. Modify the randomness of the cells with the Disperse slider. The lower the number, the more uniform the pattern. If you increase Disperse above 1.0, be sure to set the layer to Best quality.
Figure 7_7
Different Disperse values were used to modify the Cell Pattern. A value of 0 creates a uniform shape. Increasing the value to 0.50 adds more randomness. A greater value of 1.50 starts to create very irregular shapes.

4. Adjust the size and position with the Size and Disperse sliders.
The key to making an animated background is the Evolution option. As you animate evolution, the pattern will change over time. By default, revolutions are progressive, which means each cycle is an entirely unique value. There is a way though to create a seamless loop point.'

5. Under Evolution Options, check the box next to Cycle Evolution. This will ensure that a revolution for the Evolution slider makes the pattern repeat.

6. Add a keyframe near the start of the composition for Evolution for 0x and one at the end for a full number (such as 2 x). By using full rotations, you'll create a loopable pattern.
Figure 7_8
Using full rotations with the Cycle Evolution option enabled will create a loopable pattern.

Tip: Want a Different Looking Background? Randomize it
You can get a different pattern by changing the Random Seed slider. Do not keyframe this value; rather drag to choose a different starting pattern. You can also adjust the Size or Offset settings.

7. To create a richly layered background, blend multiple layers with the Cell Pattern effect applied. You can stylize the background with the Colorama effect and a vignette as well.
Figure 7_9
Stacking multiple instances of the Cell Pattern effect can create depth and visual interest.

Keynote for iPad – Designing with Magic Move Part 3

Did you miss part 2? Keynote for iPad – To Customize a Transition

An easy way to create visually stunning animations is with Magic Move. You apply Magic Move to two instances of an object on two slides. Magic Move can animate changes (such as scale, position, or opacity) between the first slide to the second.

Note
The easiest way to use Magic Move is to create the first slide and then let Magic Move duplicate it.

1. Create a slide and arrange all the text and graphic objects, as you'd like them to appear.

2. Tap the animate button. Keynote prompts you to select a slide or object.

3. Select the desired slide

4. Tap the name of the slide transition that appears next to the selected slide (it may be None).

5. Tap Magic Move in the Transitions window and tap Yes, when prompted to duplicate the slide.
iPad_Sample_06
The slide is duplicated and a second copy appears in the slide navigator.

Note
You'll notice star icons next to each object. These indicate that the Magic Move transition has been applied to those objects.

6. Arrange the objects how you'd like them to appear.
iPad_Sample_07

Design Tip
You have lots of flexibility when using the Magic Move transition. You may choose to modify the objects on the first slide (so they appear to move in to their landing positions on the second slide). You can also animate the objects on the second slide to add emphasis to one or more objects.

To make things easier, you can use a two-finger pinch gesture to zoom out and see the slide and your work area. This can be useful to have elements transition completely off of the slide.

7. Adjusting the timing of the effect is easy. Tap the original slide in the slide navigator and then tap Magic Move to open the Transitions window again.

8. Tap Options at the bottom of the Transitions window.
iPad_Sample_08
  • You can set a duration for the effect between 10 and 5.00 seconds.
    • Choose whether to start the transition when you tap or automatically after the previous transition. You can also set a delay for how quickly the transition begins after the previous slide.

Fixing Faded Historical Photos

A common problem with old black-and-white or sepia-toned photos is that they fade over time. You can use a Levels or Curves adjustment, but both commands often introduce color artifacts into the image. A few extra steps are needed to get the best results.

1. With the Eyedropper tool, sample the color tint if you want to retain it in the finished piece.

2. Leave the photo in RGB mode but strip away the color. Choose Image > Adjust > Desaturate or press Shift+Command+U (Shift+Ctrl+U).
Ch11-Fig-51-Fading-Historical-2
3. Perform a Levels adjustment and restore the white-and-black points. Drag the black Input Levels slider and the white Input Levels slider toward the center.

4. Add a Solid Color fill layer by choosing Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Click OK. The Foreground color you previously sampled will load automatically.
Ch11-Fig-52-Fading-Historical-3
5. Set the Color Fill layer to use the Color blending mode. Adjust the Opacity slider as desired.

Keynote for iPad – To Customize a Transition Part 2

Did you miss part 1? Keynote for iPad – Introduction to Animation

All Keynote transitions can be customized. The options vary with each transition offering its own choices. The primary reasons to change the transitions options are to avoid repetition and to control the pacing of the presentation.

1. Tap the Options button in the Transitions window

2. In the Options window, drag the duration slider.
iPad_Sample_04


Design Tip
You can choose duration of .10 to 5.00 seconds. Slower transitions are more dramatic, but should be reserved for special use. A value of 1.00 – 1.50 seconds is a good value for most transitions.

3. If you’ve selected a transition with directional controls, drag the arrow to set the direction from which the new slide moves in.

4. Choose when you want the transition to start (you may need to scroll the list).
iPad_Sample_05
  • On Tap – The transition is applied when you tap the screen.
    After Previous Transition – This option can be used to create a self-running presentation. Be sure to set the Delay timer so there is enough of a pause so the slide can be read before the transition occurs.

5. To apply another transition, just select another slide in the slide navigator.

6. When you’ve set up all the transitions how you want, tap Done in the top-right corner of the screen.
If you see a yellow-colored triangle on the bottom-right corner of a slide thumbnail (in the slide navigator) it means that a transition has been applied to a slide.

Design Tip
If you want to reuse a transition, you can duplicate a slide. The new copy is easy to modify, and will already contain any transitions or builds you've applied.

A Great Article on Industrial Design

CHIPPENSTEEL chair zieta prozessdesign inox
Over the centuries, we've welded metal, beat it into shape, bent it, melted it. But until recently, we've never inflated. Now that too is possible, thanks to years of painstaking work by architect Oskar Zieta and materials scientist Philipp Dohmen, both researchers at Zurich's ETH (better known as Einstein's alma mater).

The two call their work Free Internal Pressure Reshaping--FIDU, for short. But the process might seem familiar to anyone who's ever blown up an inflatable raft. Zieta and Dohmen are exhibiting their process--and its promises--at next week's DMY Berlin International Design Festival, which celebrates cutting-edge design. But if you can't make it,

Keynote for iPad – Introduction to Animation Part 1

Once you've built a presentation in Keynote for iPad, you'll likely want to enhance it with some inspired animation. Adding movement to your slides doesn’t just keep your audience’s attention; it transforms a static presentation into a compelling and persuasive display piece.
With Keynote, you'll find a wealth of options available to animate your presentation. You can create several types of slide animation, including builds—elements that animate one at a time onto a slide—and cool transitions between slides that go far beyond the simple transitions used by other programs.
  • Transitions – Using a transition lets you add an animated effect as you switch from one slide to the next.
    Magic Move – An easy way to create object movement is the Magic Move transition which animates an object between two positions.
    Text Builds – A practical presentation technique is to control the flow of information to the audience using text animation.
    Object Builds – Keynote can reveal (or remove) objects on your slide, such photos or shapes, with animated transitions.
  • Charts Builds – Keynote offers special transitions to reveal the data in a chart or graph.

Add Transitions between Slides

Keynote offers a category of animations called transitions. These animations are used between slides and are meant to signify a change in topic for your audience. Although Keynote offers several transition options, good design practices call for using the right transition mix in a presentation.

To Add a Transition


Transitions are applied to the first slide in a transition pair. That means you should apply the transition to the slide that appears first in the slide navigator. You are essentially transitioning from the selected slide to the next slide in your presentation.
1. Tap the animate button . Keynote prompts you to select a slide or object.

2. Tap a slide's thumbnail in the slide navigator.
iPad_Sample_01
A button appears next to the slide to identify which transition has been applied to the slide. If you've not applied a transition yet, it is labeled None.
3. Tap the arrow button or the name of the transition that appears in the button.
iPad_Sample_02

4. Swipe the Transitions window to see a list of available transitions.

5. Choose a transition effect.
iPad_Sample_03
Once you choose an effect, a preview animation plays automatically. You can click the play button in the Transitions window to repeat the preview.

Lens Correction in Photoshop CS5

By their very nature, lenses add distortion to the images they capture. I've posted a new tutorial over at TipSquirrel.com that addressed how to fix lens distortion for both stills and video.

Ch11-Fig-42-LenCorrex4

“One of the commands in Photoshop CS5 that received a major makeover is the Lens Correction command. It’s no longer buried, rather it sits proudly near the top of the filter menu. Adobe now ties the filter to specific lenses in the file’s metadata. You can even create your own lens profiles with a great utility. Visit http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lensprofile_creator/ for full details.”

Adobe DSLR Class Archive Online

connectdslr
If you missed the free e-seminar on using Adobe Creative Suite for DSLR video, you can check it out here. We cover Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and Bridge. Be sure to check out the part on using Photoshop to color grade video files nondestructively.
I'm also amazed at Premiere Pro's ability to handle native DSLR video with no transcoding or rendering (good stuff!).

We focus a lot on DSLR video, but all video pros and photographers will learn something. You can watch the class here online (give it a minute to load).
