Is any of this method available on the iPad with iOS? I’ve got a friend who’s a nascent video editor putting together school presentations for classrooms. She has iPad capabilities only. Thanks
Chris: You can't do it with exported video because you can't export transparent video on the iPad. You can just stick with the built-in text titles for iMovie or see if another video editing app will fit your friend's needs better.
Does this technique in Keynote work for bringing it into Final Cut Pro?
Travis: Yes. But in FCP you have the option to do a lot more with text using the built-in titles.
Chris, if you want to do this solely on iPad, set your background color to a pure green color. Then when you export the Keynote slides and bring them into iMovie, you can add them as green/blue screen clips to remove the background.
Many thanks for this excellent advice! You solved several of my most puzzling problems.
