Masking Video In Keynote With a Donut

It is easy to put an image in a shape and mask the image using Keynote. But you cannot do the same with video. However, you can place a shape or image on top of a video. So by using the right shape, like the donut shape, editing it, and positioning it just right, you can put video in a circular mask.

    Another option is the 2D donut chart as a mask. By using only 1 segment / column of data while hiding the Data Point Names and Values. This allows easier percentage based control of the inner radius. Thanks for all the videos!

    Good tip!
    Instead of the doughnut I found an easier shape to work with to get that circle - in the last category in Shapes, "Work", five lines down, not sure what the symbol represents...

    LzR: If you hover the cursor over the shapes in the selector, a tool tip appears with the name. I think what you are using is "Fire Department" -- looks like a seal or badge.
