I was experimenting with Keynote’s animation tools and decided for fun to make a short animated motion graphic to showcase what the app can do. It’s pretty impressive how much Keynote can stand up to pro animation apps like After Effects and Motion and how fast it makes process. Honestly the most time consuming part of this was trying to get an adequate screen recording (video codecs blah).
I’ve always been a huge advocate of using Keynote for basic prototyping because there are a lot of great animation/drawing goodies hidden in this app and it’s so easy to set a scene up. Same thing goes with motion graphics. Even if you’re not planning on making your final animation in Keynote, it’s an incredibly fast way to audition different effects and narratives.
