Gary - Very nice tutorial, appreciate it as always. Question - is there some way to add some text, make it transparent, and mask out the rest of the slide so that the dynamic background is only visible through the text part?
Juris: Not that I can think of offhand. You could do it by building that graphic in a graphics app like Pixelmator or Photoshop, and then just covering the slide with it.
Yep, that works fine with Photoshop, creating a png image with a solid background and a transparent hole. Also, playing around with PS Chroma Keying plus the Keynote dynamic backgrounds exported to movies can make for some intriguing effects. Thank you, sir!
Is it possible to create a dynamic background in Keynote and export it to PDF and have that PDF show the movement? When exported the pdf becomes still. I am making a cover for work for a lookbook I share with clients.
Troy: No. PDFs don't really support animation.
