Using Keynote To Create Narrated Videos

You can use Keynote to create a presentation and then record yourself giving the presentation. Your voice and the timing as you advanced from slide-to-sldie will be recorded. You can then export this as a video. This is a good way to quickly get information into video format for distribution on YouTube and elsewhere.

    “I’ll upload the result of this example so you can see it if you like.”

    Looked all over for it. Where is it hiding?

    Tim: It is at https://macmost.com/j-appleinteresting (the link is in the video at 5:42 when I’m saying that).

    Hi, thanks for the straightforward demo. I have a Lavalier mic – can I use that to record the voice-over? Is it going to be better quality than the built in iMac mic?

    Peter: Hard to say as there are different quality mics. But try it both ways and compare.

    Hi again. I can report that both on a test Keynote presentation and a Voice Memo the lavalier produced a warmer, more intimate quality to the voice, without the harder, echoey ambient sound of the built in (Late 2012 iMac). It’s an inexpensive Boya BY-M1, recommended to me by a school IT guy who does a lot of student interviews and presentations

    Peter: Great! Yes, I’d imagine it would beat a 2012 iMac. I wonder how it would stack up against the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, which is supposed to have great mics. I doubt any in-body mic will ever be as good as a decent mic you can get closer to you though.

    Can I do a video instead of an audio voice-over in Keynote?

    Gerry: Like showing a live video of yourself like I do in my videos? That would require software like ScreenFlow or Camtasia. OBS will do it too,
