About This Class

Adding animations to your videos can be intimidating. Many programs for creating animations are complicated and have very steep learning curves. Fortunately if you are working on the iPad you can get started in animation using Keynote which is free. Then you can bring those animations in to LumaFusion to use in your videos.

In this course we will talk about several different kinds of animations you can make using Keynote. We will learn how to use both animations and transitions to create a final animation. We will also learn how to create and format shapes to use in our animations. We will learn popular animations like titles, lower thirds, and fully animated transitions. Then we will learn how to bring those completed animations in to LumaFusion and apply them over our video footage. 

There is a lot to learn, so let's get started!

1. Introduction: Hello and welcome to this course on creating animations on your iPad. My name is Ben Nielsen and I'm immediate design educator with over six years of experience teaching creative software and skills both in person and online. Animations can feel complicated and getting involved in a program like Adobe After Effects can feel overwhelming, not to mention expensive. And also it's not even available on the iPad. But you know, luma fusion is by far my favorite video editor on the iPad. And it does have some animation controls that you can use. But sometimes those controls can be finicky and difficult to understand, especially for somebody who is new to animation. But the great thing about working on an iPad is that you already have access to Apple's Keynote Program, because every IOS device can download it for free. So this course will focus on using Keynote to create animations that we can then use in luma fusion, we will spend the majority of our time in Keynote learning all the different aspects of animating there and creating several different animations. And then we'll use luma fusion to put that into one of our videos. You don't need to know a lot about luma fusion already to take this course. This course is really focusing on the animation aspect of it. But if you do want to learn to create videos in them, a fusion, I have a course on that as well that you can access from my profile. I also have a course on the more advanced animation features inside of luma fusion. After you've taken this course, you might want to look at that for some further inspiration. I hope you are ready to dive in and learn less. Get started learning about animations on the iPad. In the next video, we'll talk about the project for this course. 2. Project: The project for this course is going to be to create a video with three animations in it. These animations should be created in Keynote and then brought in as video files into luma fusion, you should make one video with all three animations in it. And then you should upload that to a platform like YouTube or Vimeo. You can set it to private and then take the link for that and share it in the project section for this course, you can't do more than three animations if you want, but you should do at least three to complete the project. The three animations that you should do are first, a chroma key animation that's using like a green screen effect to remove part of the background so that it can overlay on your footage. And don't worry, we will talk a lot more about that in this course. And another one of your animations should use blend modes to overlay your animation onto your footage. There are a lot of different blend modes to choose from, and we will talk more about which ones will work best during this course. And lastly, you should have an animation that stands alone, not overlaid on footage, that would serve as a transition between one piece of footage and another piece of footage. We'll talk more about how to create those as well as we go through this course. If you follow along with me in the course, you will be able to query each of these animations and put them into luma fusion to create your video. At the end of the course, you should have your video ready to upload to one of those sites like YouTube or Vimeo or someplace else that you can then link to in your project for this course, please do take the time to actually complete the project and share it because it really helps you to learn if you follow along with the process as you are learning it, I know it can seem daunting to start it on creating some of these animations. But really the things that we're covering in this course are very simple. Once you take the time to practice them, but you have to take the time to practice them or they will continue to be confusing to you. So please do complete the project that will make this learning experience so much better for you. And if you share it with us, then we can also see what you've learned and we can learn together. So let's go ahead and get started. In the next video, we're going to talk about sketching our animations. You know. 3. Sketching: Okay, so now we're going to talk about sketching. And I talk about sketching a lot. And I think sometimes people get tired of hearing me talk about sketching. With sketching really is a critical and crucial part of design. You really need to sketch before you design anything, and that includes animations. Remember, you do not need to be good at drawing to sketch. All you need to do is be able to make marks on paper that represent your ideas. They don't each represent your ideas in great detail. They just need to be able to represent your ideas. And especially with animation, this is critical because it's so easy to think that we know what an animation is going look like and then go and try and build that in Keynote. And it just doesn't turn out it all the way. We kind of envisioned it. And that's because we didn't take the time to sketch it and really think through the process. So let's go ahead and let's just take a look at how I would sketch. There's lots of different ways to sketch. I like to use sticky notes, little golf pencils just so I can get my ideas out. And that's really one of the critical things is get out as many ideas as you can. So I'll just draw little thumbnails and then I will sketch out what I want to animate. Now, some people might draw like multiple thumbnails and sketch out like frame-by-frame person. They're going to be walking. That'll be like frame by frame sketching. I'm more like two. You just sketch out the idea. So I'll just draw a person. And then I'll just use arrows to show my movement. So I'll just say like that. Okay, so that's just a simple sketch that shows a character walking across the screen. Okay, let's just grab another one. This is y lipstick notes. I can just get another one. They don't cost hardly anything. And I can just get out my ideas. So let's say we're going to sketch out an animation that we're going to do for our project. Let's say a lower thirds animation. And maybe in my head I'm thinking, okay, I want a ball to drop down from the top, and I want that ball to then morph into a bar and then have the name appear. So I would draw a ball and an arrow coming down and then arrows going out to the side. And I'll just draw another shape on top of that to show the bar morphing out. And then I'll just put name. Okay, so that doesn't look good. It's really messy, but it shows me the idea that I want to have. And maybe I think, oh, what would it look like if the ball bounced? So I draw out another one and maybe I don't draw out the whole thing again. I just draw the ball and I drop bouncing a couple times. And that's just the arrows going up and down. And that just helps me to solidify the idea. So it's really important that you do this sketching phase, however you'd like to do it, but I think paper and pencil is the best way to do it, not to try and do it in a digital medium, because the digital medium tends to feel to permanent to us and then we can't throw out our ideas. So maybe I have another idea and I can just really quickly be like, well maybe I want my lower third to come from the side. So I'll just draw an arrow coming out that way and then draw another arrow saying it's going to disappear here. Name. And then maybe I'll have another little box here that's going to pop up. So I'll just draw an arrow popping up, right? And looks messy. You might not even know what it is supposed to represent if you look at it and you had hand drawn it, but because I drew it, I know what it's supposed to represent. And I will have a much better time creating this later if I've already drawn it out. Ok, so for the next one, let's say this is going to be a title that we're going to use the overlay on. So I'm going to want a box to come up. This is similar to the titles that I create for my courses here. So I want this box to draw on. So I'll just do draw, draw, draw to show that it's going to draw out in a clockwise direction. And then I'll put name and draw an arrow to show that the names go to reveal that way. And you can have different ways of showing that you're going to reveal. So maybe if I'm going to like a fading reveal, I'll just put some hashes across there. And that will kind of signal to me what kind of emotion I want in that. Ok, so hopefully you're getting the idea of just the way that you do these sketches in a very rough manner just to get your ideas out. And I really want you to take this next step to sketch out a bunch of different ideas for the three animations that you want to do for your project. Okay, so let's try another one here. Let's say I want a van to go across. You know, I love those vans. And so make a van. And maybe it looks like a bus in my drawing or maybe it doesn't look like anything at all. But I know I want it to just chug across here, right? And maybe this is going to be my green screen one. So my background will be green, maybe I'll write that in green. So I know that. And it's just going to drive across to take some time, sketch out a bunch of different ideas to get three good animations, you're going to need a bunch of different sketched ideas. And a lot of those ideas you'll decide that you don't really like, so you will throw them out. And that's really one of the biggest benefits to sketching is throwing out bad ideas instead of wasting time making those bad ideas in your animation program. Ok, so go ahead and sketch. And in the next video we'll talk about the basics of animating in keynote on the iPad. Okay. 4. Basics of Keynote Animation: Alright, so now that we've sketched, we're going jump into Keynote and we're going to learn the basics of how animation works in keynote. A lot of people know in a program like Keynote or PowerPoint how to add animations in a really simple way. But most people never take it to the next level to actually learn how to modify those animations to really get the result that they want. And this is critical. If we're going to use the animations in video, we're not using these in a slideshow. We're actually going to use them part of the animations in our video. So the first thing that we wanna do is have a document and I've just opened up a new slide presentation here. And just to Y1, we don't need any of the themes or anything. We're just gonna work with this and we're just going to go ahead and select anything that's on here and delete it because we don't need any of this. We just need a simple object to start out with. And that's the first thing you have to have something to animate on the slide. So let's go ahead and hit the plus. And then we're just going to choose to put into shape. So we'll jump over to the shape options. And there's a bunch of different options here, but we want a basic for now. But you can see there's different things under like geometry, objects, animals, nature, food, symbols, education, arts, science, people, places, activities, transportation, work, ornaments. There's so much here that you can use. So you can always look through there for what you need. But for right now let's just use a circle. And once you have an object, then you can start to animate it. So to do this, we need to go into the animation options and there's two ways to get there. One is hit the menu and then choose animate. The other is to tap on the object and then choose animate. Either of those would get you here. And so now we're in the animation view, but were selected on an object. So we're actually going to animate on the object. If we are not selected on an object, say I just click on the slide somewhere. So I just select it and then we get the option to add a transition and we'll talk more about that later, but transitions or animations between slides. So let's go ahead and click on the object. What we can see here, right off the bat is there are three options for different types of animation. There is a built-in which will bring an object onto the screen. There's at action and action is something that will happen while the object is on screen and there's ad build out, a build out. We'll take the object off the screen and you get different options depending on which of these use select. So let's go ahead and let's add a built-in. You click that you get the built in menu, which has all the options for different built in animations. Unlike a more advanced program like aftereffects or black magic fusion, you can't make up your own animations. Inside of keynote, you can make slight modifications to the different animations that they give you. But you can't just come up with your own animation out of your head. You really need to take what's in your head and translate it into the different animations that they provide for you. This has the benefit of being very simple, and it has the drawback of not being very customizable, but it is a great place to start learning the basics of animation. You have many different options to choose from. So let's just try one here and see what happens. Let's choose the lion. And you see it just flies in from the side. So that's why it's a building a comes on to the screen. It's important to understand how these different animation options work, because these are the controls that you have available to you. So it's good to familiarize yourself with them so that you know the different options that you might want to use based on the sketches that you had. So for example, we saw that fly in animation, which brings that object in onto the screen. But you might be looking for something else. So for example, there's fade and move, which is similar but not the same. So you've got some different options for different things that you can do. Another example would be the WIP, right? Going do something similar, but It doesn't move there, it's stationary while it's coming in. So depending on what you sketched out and how you want your animations to take place will determine which of these animation options you choose. Alright, so we can leave that there. Let's just say that we use to fly in and we'll exit out. Once you've chosen one, then that will appear here. And your little timeline, you have your building, your action and your built out. When you tap on one of those, you actually get a few parameters that you can change in. This is where you can make adjustments, where it says change up at the top and we'll actually let you change the whole animation. So if you decide you don't like that animation, you'd like a different kind. You can change it there. Then you have the duration, which is going to determine how long the animation takes. So if we want this to fit on faster, we can just drag that back to say 2.5th. It goes much quicker. If we wanted to take longer, we could drag that out, say to two seconds. Push play, and it flies in much slower in many of these different animations, you can determine the direction. So for example, this one, we have a number of different directions that we can choose from, including random. And depending on which animation you've chosen, you may have more or less parameters that you can adjust. So it's good to get familiar with the parameters that can be adjusted on each of these animations as well. Ok, delivery. This is something that is really for text. So you've got by paragraph by paragraph group or buy highlighted paragraph depending on how you want your texts to come on. And then you have your Start option. This determines when your animation begins currently we have on tap and after transition on tap means that if we were presenting the psycho presentation, we would need to tap it to make the animation happen after transition means it will happen immediately after this slide transitions onto the screen. If we had another animation currently here, we would have the option to play after previous, but because this is the first one, we don't have the option right now. And then you can also set a delay. So if I choose after transition, I can then set a delay for the amount of time I want to wait after the transition, before it happens. Generally, we won't use on tap because we're making a video, we're not going to actually be using this to present, so the ontop doesn't do us much good. Let's go back here. So those are the options and then of course you can delete it. So let's just take another look here and see what it looks like to add an action. So you can see these are a different color and there are different options here than we had on the built in. So for example, let's say that we really wanted it to jiggle. After it comes in, we can choose the jiggle and it just gives it a little bit of movement there. Then when we hit x, we go back and we can see this. And I want you to see when you add an action, it breaks it down into a smaller timeline because you can add as many actions as you want. You're limited to one build in and one build out, but its many actions as you want on an object. So you can add another one. Say we want it to flip after it jiggles and we hit X. And you can see these two are together. Then we hit the back arrow and we can see we have a fly-in multiple actions and we don't yet have a build-out. So let's go ahead and let's adjust these so that you can see different kinds of things that you can change. So this one has duration and then it has intensity. So there can be a small or medium or a large jiggle will keep it at medium for now. And then we go to the start and we want change that to after build one thing, go back. And then we'll go to flip and we'll see what we can do there. Flip has a duration and then a direction controls. But unlike the fly-in, it only has two options. It can flip laughter, it can flip, right? Can't flip up or down. Then you can choose the number of flips that it does. So you could decrease or increase this if you want to. And then of course you can choose on tap. We're after build-to. Okay, so let's go ahead and let's just play that through. So we'll just hit the Play button at the top. See this flies in jiggles, flips to exit the preview. Just pinch your fingers together. You see, you see how you can string these actions together to make more complex animations. So one thing I would really recommend doing is just going through pointed object on the screen, going through all of these different options so you can see what they do, see what parameters you can adjust on them. And that will give you a better idea for how you can translate the ideas that have been in your head and you put into your sketches into this slideshow, which can then become a video that we can put into one of our video projects. Keep in mind that some animations are only available on certain objects. So for example, there's the right ON animation, which can only happen if there's a stroke on the object, not just a solid fill. And we'll look more at that later in one of the example videos. And there are also some animations that only apply to text because text gets special types of animations. And if you apply an animation to an object and it looks like it's not doing anything or it's not doing what you would expect it to do. Chances are that's because that animation was built for text. A really important part of animating in Keynote and animation in general is trial and error. You have to be willing to try things out. Cfd work and when they don't work, try adjusting, changing them. And especially in keynote because you can adjust very little manually, you often have to just try several different transitions and adjust a few parameters you can in order to get the result that you want. Remember keynote has the advantage of being quite simple. You don't have to deal with keyframes or splines or anything like that that you'd have to deal with in a more advanced program, but it comes with limitations. Another thing that I really want to show you here is the Build menu. So if we tap this menu in the top right, while we're in the animation mode, we get this build order menu and this is where we can actually see things and rearrange them. So if I grab number three here, I can actually drag that up and make it number two. And number two will become number three. And if we add a bunch of different objects, we could arrange those here. We'll see this build order panel quite a bit. And you can see you can adjust when it starts and you can adjust the delay from here. So this is a very, very useful one to have and you can preview from here as well. So without going into the full preview, you can see what would happen. You can also hit the Select button to multi-select different animations, just them all at once. And then remember if you want to create a transition on a slide, you just need to not be selected on an object while you're in the animation mode and then choose add a transition. Transitions can help you move between things. The most useful transition for our purposes is going to be the Magic Move transition. Magic Move transition will morph what's on one side into what's on the next one. So we'll need to use that from time to time when we run out of our ability to animate on an object on a single slide. We then need to move to another one. And we'll see that as we go throughout this course. But just be aware of this Magic Move transition. Because we don't have another slide just shows it fading out. But that's where it is when you need it. And of course there are some other transitions. A lot of them are to God a to be useful to us, but some of them might be as we go along. So also experimented to transitions and see the way that they impact different things. Hit none for now, to get out of the animation mode, we just hit the done button. And then we can actually come in and, you know, adjust our objects. So in the next video, we'll talk about adding and formatting shapes. 5. Formatting Objects: Now that we're back out of the animation mode in Keynote, let's talk about adding and formatting objects on the screen because objects are what we are going to be animating. So we need to be able to build those out according to the sketches that we've made. So I'm just gonna go ahead and make a new blank slide to start with. And you make a new blank slide by pressing the plus in the bottom left. And you can choose whatever you want. But of course we're just gonna go with blank because we don't want any of this other garbage on the screen. And then we add an object by hitting plus. And we can choose from a lot of different things. Like I said before, I showed you all of these different categories that exist, as well as the shapes, which also for some reason includes texts. There are things like graphs and tables, and you can bring in images. What we really care about is just this shape one though, because we're basically going to shapes or text. So let's say that we just wanted to create a little face here. We're just going to hit the circle and then we get the circle just like we did before. And then in order to modify that, we can change its size by any of the handles Walt selected. So I'm just going to drag up and try and keep it in a circle. And then I can drag it around. These little snapping guides show up to help me know when I'm in the center. If you go up to this menu that says where you can change a lot of things, including the snapping. If you go under guides, you can turn those on or off. So if I turn off the center guides and then drag this around, I don't get that snapping anymore. So if for some reason you're snapping is not working, just go in here, go to guides, make sure these are all turned on so that you get the benefit of having those snapping guides. Okay, then if we want to format the shapes so we would like it to, I don't know, maybe be yellow and we can maybe we wanted to make a smiley face. We can go to this paintbrush tool. And the paintbrush tool is the format and the arrange. So you have arranged, which is what's on right now. That's where we can adjust where things are. There's text options which we don't have any checks so that when do us any good right now and then there's style and this is where we really want to meet. So say we wanna change the color. There's some style options right here, but we can also just go to fill. And then we have different options. There's these presets. You can scan through those different options. There's also color which gives you all these little swatches. Or when you swipe over, you can get your color wheel to select what you want. And there's also an eyedropper tool down at the bottom. The eye dropper tool, you just drag around to find what you want. And I'm going to undo that because we made it white and we don't want it to be white. Okay, let's go back in here to the format, go to the fill. You can also choose gradient or you can fill with an image. For us, we're just going to be going to color and let's just select a yellow here. Bring up our saturation. Okay, so now we've got this yellow circle and there are other things that we could change about this as well. So let's go back to our format and you can see we have this border option that's going to give a stroke around the outside of our shape right now it's just 1, but we can drag that up. And remember there is a really useful animation called right on that only works if there's a stroke. You can also change the color of the stroke. So let's say we didn't want it to be black, we wanted it to be red. Change it to that. And you can also change the style. So this is where you can give it a brush stroke or make it dotted. There's a bunch of different things you can do here. We'll just leave it normal for now. You can also do things like add a shadow. We don't want to add in any shadows while we're doing our animations. Because shadows involved transparency and transparency tends to cause problems, especially if we're doing something with a green screen chroma key effect so that we can take out the background. So we probably don't want you adding any Shadows. The other thing was Shadows, is shadows do not animate like a shadow. They animate like an object. And so when you animate with a shadow of a shadow doesn't move in a natural way and it can feel really awkward. So we mostly want to leave the shadow off. With reflection, which is basically just a shining shadow. We don't really want to actually opacity because again, that introduces transparency and that tends to cause problems when we bring it into luma fusion. And then title and caption is where we can add a title to this object. But we don't need to worry about that because we don't have any accessibility needs here. We're just making a video out of this. So nobody is going to be looking through this as a slideshow. Okay, and so that's basically what you can do with an object like this. So let's go ahead and let's just build out a couple of these so you can see we'll add in some eyes and a mouth for this smiley face. And in a circle. You make that circle white. We can tap on that circle. We can use copy and we can just tap over here. We can choose paste those eyes. Let's paste another one. And we'll make this one black. Composition it. You can zoom in by spreading your fingers and you can zoom out by pinching. We'll zoom in, tap on it. Copy, come over here, paste. And now let's go ahead and see if we can find something for the mouth. Just go and scan through a couple of the see if there's anything that looks like it might be useful. Narrowed seen anything that would make a good mouth. So I think the best thing we can do is make kind of a crescent shape out of circles, since there isn't a crescent shape here. So let's grab another circle and its current size that up. Now it looks like a surprise ways, let's duplicate that. By copying pasting. Let's change the color just so we can kind of see, we'll change it to our yellow color. So let's go here and fill. And then the color will swipe over here. And we'll actually use our eyedropper tool to get the exact same shade of yellow. We'll just select that yellow. And this is helpful for us because then we can kind of see what it would look like. So I think we want to spin that and make it a little bigger. Then we need to actually cut out this crescent shaped. So let's grab our objects. Select over both of them. And then when we go to our Format menu, we can go to arrange. And we'll actually see these combined shape options. So wonder the combined shapes we want to choose one that will let us subtract the front from the back. There we go. And I'm going to move that in. And we've got our little smiley face character and zoom back out here. So now that we've made a little character, we know a lot about how to format the shapes. Let's just go ahead and practice what we learned last time by adding a simple animation here. Let's grab our little circle here, and we're just going to give it a little jiggle animation so that the eyes will move a little bit. It will go to our animate at action, and we'll go give it that little jiggle. And let's select our other one. And we'll add the same thing to it. And we do that. We then want to come here and where it says start, we want to choose with build one. We want that to happen with build one. And then on build one, we want to go into that and choose after transition so that these will happen right away. Okay, let's play that and see what it looks like. Okay, so it just gives him a little bit of motion, a little bit of animation to that character. So now you know how to format shaped, you know how to change the fill and the border. You know how to take two shapes and merge them together to create a new shape. And you know how to duplicate a shape so that you can reuse it somewhere else and then add animation to it. And that's basically what you need to know about formatting shapes. In the next video, we're going to take what we've learned and we're going to go ahead and we're going to start building out a tidal animation. 6. Making a Title Animation: Alright, now that we know how to make and Format objects in Keynote and we know how to animate them. We basically have all the tools that we need in order to create an animation. So let's go ahead and we will click Plus making new slide and we're going to make a tidal animation now. Now this animation is going to be what I call a white on black animation. And the reason for that is that we're going to use a blend mode to combine this in luma fusion with our video clip. And that will allow it to act as an overlay. But in order to do that, it works best if we do a white on black, now will all make sense in the next video when we actually look at how we would bring this into luma fusion. So let's go ahead and we'll start by making the background of our slide black. So we'll hit format. We have no objects or anything selected. And so that will allow us to change the background of the slide and we'll change it to black. The next thing that we're going to want to do is go ahead and make it rounded rectangle. So this will be very similar to the animations that you see in front of my class. Videos. Rounded rectangle will come out and then text will appear inside it. You probably remember me sketching out something very similar to this in the sketching video. So let's go ahead and grab my rounded rectangle. I'm going to go ahead and change out the colors so that we can see it. I want this to be just a stroke. So let's go to style fill. And we're going to use no fill from the presets. So now there's no fill there. And we'll turn on the border and we'll make that white. We'll go ahead and we'll bring that border up quite a ways. We do have this little green option here. Let me zoom in so that you can see that that enables us to determine the roundness. So we can drag that left to right to make it less round or more round. Alright, let's go ahead and we will make this bigger just by dragging out. And I want this to be a rectangle until it would be plenty of room and let's center it. So we've got our rectangle. And now let's go ahead and add our text. We'll just add into the different objects that we need. And so let's say text in the text, Let's change that text color so we'll go to the Text Options. Text color, white will make it much bigger just by raising the size. Unfortunately, keynote does not have a really quick way to change the size. If you hold down though it will speed up. Of course, we can change the font as well. Let's go down here. We'll choose my favorite quicksand. And then we'll just type in something here. Introduction. Now that's probably too big. So let's go back to Format and we'll just bring down the size. Okay, if that's looking pretty good to us, I think we can go ahead and animate it. I might and round the corner just slightly. And then let's click Animate. Now what I like to have here is a built-in with that right on animation that I talked about before. So we'll click Add built in, and we're just looking for line draw. And that's going to draw that out. Just like that. So that's going to be our built in. To x and we tap on this. We of course want this to start after the transition with no delay because we just want to start right away to duration of two seconds. So that seemed to be fine. And there's clockwise and counterclockwise, so we can change that. But of course we want to be clockwise because that's how it was in my sketch. And there's this acceleration option. This is a really important concept in animation, which is called ease in and ease out. And our eyes expect things to start out moving slower than move faster and then slow down again. And that's what ease in, ease out ease doing. So let's just look at it with none. You can see how that looks. We'll preview it. So you see the speed is even the entire time. Then if we go back and we change acceleration to ease in, ease out, see that it begins slower and speeds up and then slows down again. And that's just more natural to our ISO. Anytime there is an option for acceleration controls, you probably want to use them inside of keynote. It just makes it easier on the eye, makes it make more sense to the viewer, and isn't quite as jerky for them. So we've got that. We don't need to worry about the delivery here. Now we don't need any actions for this. We don't need it to flip or juggler anything in the middle. We just did. We'll need it to build out in the same manner. We just want the line draw. But in this case we're actually going to reverse it. So let's go back to line draw build out. And we're going to counterclockwise. Let's just see how that looks. That looks pretty good. I think that's fine. In the middle, we'll add in our text animation. So let's just say after build one, even though we'll switch that later to come after the text animation, Let's tap on our text at are built in and there's a few different options we could use here. I think keyboard might be the one that we want. Bring that out. It uses a cursor. The other option might be WIP. So there's a lot of experimentation here. I think I like white better in this case. So we'll hit X there. And let's look at our parameters for WIP, duration of 1 second from the left. The left is what I liked. That kinda makes it give the feeling that it's being written. And we want it to start after build-to, but we'll change that in the animation panel. And that's about all we can adjust here. There's a lot of different directions we could adjust it on. We really just want it to come from the left. So let's go into our bills and we will just drag that number three up into the middle. Now let's go ahead and preview from the top so that we can see how this is looking. Okay, so let's go ahead and let's click on our text again. And we're going to want this to fade out at the same time that the line is going away. And it looks like our options for fade or fade and move or fade in scale. So let's see what each of those looks like. Okay. We didn't scale. I think I like fade and move better. Let's go ahead. Let's chaplain feet and move. We'll have this start with Bill 3. So we want that to happen wall the line is going away instead of after the line goes away. And we may need to adjust the delay to get it at the right point, but we'll see about that. And then there's this travelled distance. So that will determine how far it goes. Let's click Play to see how far it's going. And it's really going farther than we want. So let's just go ahead and we'll just take that travelled distance, way down, maybe like just 10 percent. We don't really want it to move very far away. Now let's try plane that through a lot of animation involves just playing it through, seeing what it looks like, seeing where things happen and changing them. Okay. I like where that feed is better, but I want you to give this a delay from its start. So that happens more when the line is coming to the middle here. So let's delay it by about 2.5th and then we'll see what that looks like. So again, you're just playing it through over and over again to see what it looks like. There. I like that. The last thing that we wanna do is leave this on screen for a minute so we need to change our delay. So let's go to our Build Order Panel and where we have the rounded rectangle line draw out. Let's go ahead and give it a delay. So it's going to be after built to, but we're going give it a delay of two seconds so that it remains on screen for two seconds. Now let's preview. So now we have a pretty clean and good-looking title animation that we can use here. It's not very difficult to make an animation like this. As you see, you can adjust the parameters and you could do different things. You don't need to use a rectangle. You could use just like an underline or you could just use the text itself. There's a lot of different modes you can take with your title animation. But remember to do the white on black in order to be able to use the Blend Modes once we get to luma fusion, in the next video, we're actually going to go ahead and talk about how we can apply our animations in luma fusion. And that will help us to make more sense as we make more animations. Why we take certain routes depending on how we want our animations to display. When we get to luma fusion. 7. Applying Animations in LumaFusion: Okay, so now we've jumped over into luma fusion. And the reason we're doing this now is that it's very useful to understand where we're going as we continue making animations. I wanted to show you how to make that first title animation first before we got here to luma fusion. But at this point it's really useful to understand how we can apply these animations over footage in luma fusion in order to understand the choices that we're going to make about the color that we do things in Keynote. So I have a clip here that's just me talking. And then I have four different keynote animations that are stacked on top of it. And we'll just go through each of these one-by-one. So we'll start at the bottom here. I'll turn on that eyeball on the left and then we can just drag through to see how it rolls. So as we go here, this is a lower third social media handle. So the icon draws on moves and then the handle types out. It's fairly simple. I'm gonna go ahead and mute this track here so that we can play through that and you can see it in real time. So you can just have this come up, show your social media handle. Pretty easy animation there. And how does that happen though? How does that come out of keynote and get hearing dilemma fusion? Well, let's take a look at, I'll click on this clip and we'll click Edit. And the way that we're doing this is actually with a blend mode. Let's jump over here to frame and fit clothes outside and position and go to blend. And you can see we are currently on screen mode. So let's go ahead and change that back to normal so you can see how that looks. So this is a size down clip and it's black. So normally it would just be black all the way across. But we use screen. And screen allows the darker parts to be made transparent and the lighter parts to stay opaque. So using that screen option allows us to basically completely eliminate the black and show just the white parts. And that's why we just did that white on black animation in the last one. Oops, actually input now my end, which is very similar to screen, you can play with the different blend modes to see which one gives you the best result. Okay, Let's turn that one off and let's go look at the next form. Okay, so this one is a lower thirds. You saw me sketch out something that looked a lot like this with the ball dropping down, creating the lower third. So let's go ahead, let's play through and see what that looks like. Go to bounce. Bar comes out, named comes out and disappears. Okay, so let's go in and let's look at what's happening here. So we're back in framing fit. And if we look here at the blend mode, this is actually set to normal and 100% opacity. So what's happening with this one? Let's go over here to Effects. And we can see we've got a Luma Key set. So let's turn the limbic key off and you can see everything is now white. So using the light Luma Key, which is here under the keys option, that was able to screen out the white part. And because there wasn't any white in my actual lower thirds, I'm able to screen out just the background and create exactly that look that I want. So when that is on, you can't see any of the background. You can only see the Lower Thirds Title. So that's the light Luma Key. We're going to see several keys as we go through this. A key just basically means that you are creating a mask to cut out part of the image. So let's turn that off and we'll turn on this next one. This is a subscribe animation. And the reason I'm showing you this one is to show you when a key doesn't work very well. Let's go ahead and watch it in. You'll see there's kind of some problems with this. I mean, the halo maybe isn't a huge problem in the case of subscribing might actually draw better attention to it, but it is not a very clean edit. So let's go ahead and look in the edit mode here and see what we've got. Here we have a blue sky key on this and we turn that off. You can see it's all white there. Let's actually open this up here. We've chosen the blue sky key, and then we've changed the key color from blue to white. And there are several issues that we're having here. So let's back up. So you can see as this comes on, There's actually a fade in on the animation that we've put on this circle. So that fade in causes it to not key out very well because it's trying to key out the white, but because it's fading, It's blending, it's not all read yet. So that just makes it look a little awkward as it comes on. And then we have this halo around the whole thing. And there's a problem because we're trying to key out white, but we're also using white for the subscribe. And that just causes a problem because we have to adjust our key to keep our text showing, but not show the background. You want to avoid using the same color for your background that you are using in your animation. In this case, having a white background and white text. That's an important thing to avoid just because you won't be able to get a very clean look out of that because you'll try and take away the part that you want unless of course, you want your background footage to be showing through in part of the image, which could create a cool masking effect. Okay, let's go look at the last one. Turn that off, turn this on, and this one you can see here on the timeline is green. So let's play it through and see what's happening. Okay, so low voice bubble pops up. Let's click on that and then let's go look at it. So we've got a green screen key. Let's turn that off and you can see that this is all green. And using this really bright green is a great way to get a colored that is not probably in your animation and get a really clean key out of it. So let's look at this. We open this up, turn it on. There's some different things you can do here using the eyedropper tool. We've selected the exact green that we used and there's no green in our actual animation. And so that makes it look really clean. There is one part here at the very beginning where it looks kinda wonky because it's fading in as it's coming. And you can see the text kind of disappears for a second there because the phage just causes problems with the key. But for the most part, this actually looks really clean because the green is very different than the blue. We can adjust things here to make it look different, right? So this edge blur radius, we put that up, you can see that we start to bring in more grains. We want that down to bring in less green. There's also the erosion distance which will cut that in more or less. We don't need it to be cut more in because it's fine the way it is. And then there's the hue range. And depending on where you go with that, it can change what gets taken out because this is pretty stark. Contrast doesn't make that much difference no matter where we put it until we drag it so far that it's taken out all color. And that's basically you just apply that chromo key and then you use the Eyedropper tool to select the color that you need. And that's how you bring in these different animations in order to make them overlay with your footage. So hopefully that gives you a concept of kind of where we're going here. So as you're building out your animations, you can make those color choices based on how you want them to appear over your footage. Then of course, there's the other kind of animation which doesn't overlay on footage. And in that case, the background should just be whatever you want the background to be in the actual film, then the background can be just whatever you want it to be because it won't overlay on top of anything. So now that we know how that works in the next video, we're going to jump back and we're going to start making a lower third animation in Keynote. Okay. 8. Making a Lower Third: Now we're going go ahead and we're going to make the lower thirds animation. We're not going do this one black on white. We're going do it on white so that we can use that Luma Key. So what we wanna do is just not involve any white in the lower third generation. So I've just made a new blank slide here, just like we've done before, and it's white so we can leave the background as it is, will be using that Luma Key. And so we don't want to use any white when we are creating this. Now this is going to be the one where the ball drops down and then it turns in to a rounded rectangle bar. We can't actually transform that shape with an animation. And so we're going to need to actually use that magic Move option. In order to use the magic move, there needs to be an object on each slide that is the same type of object so that it knows something to move around. That can sound a little confusing. But the reason it's important is this. When we have that ball dropped down, we don't want it to be a circle because ultimately we are going for a rounded rectangle. So we actually want it to be a rounded rectangle so that when we do the magic move, Tino knows to change that dropping one into the long bar, one that can sound confusing until you see what's happening. Basically, you just need to know that's why I'm going to use the rounded rectangle instead of the circle. But we can make a rounded rectangle look just like a circle by rounding it out. So let's go ahead and grab one of these. Let's change its color. I'll just grab a nice kind of pale orange color here. That's fine for now. We can always change that later if we want to. And I'm going to drag this in to make it a circle. The very next thing that I'm going to do is actually go ahead and duplicate this slide so that I know I have the same object on the next slide. I'm going to tap on the slide and choose Duplicate. Now I have two slides that are the same so that when I make the magic move, this we'll work on our first slide. Let's take our object and we'll drag it over to the side and down into where we think the lower thirds would be. Now let's animate it. We wanted to drop down and balance. So let's go ahead and tap on it, create an animation at a building. And in this case, I think we're looking for one called drop. Here we go drop. And you can see that it actually bounces a little bit on the drop. And that's really important to create a real feeling to it. You wouldn't want it to just drop down and stop because that's not how things actually dropping when something drops down, it's going to bounce a little bit. So let's see what we can modify on this one. So we've got a duration so we can make it drop faster or slower. I think 1 second is fine in this case. And then we can choose it to happen after the transition. So we want it to happen immediately. Unfortunately, we can't adjust the bounce, so we just get whatever bounce it gave us. We can kind of make an adjustment to the Bounce by changing the duration. So it can bounce faster or it can bounce longer. If we were to lengthen it out there. We can kind of do that, but we can't adjust it directly. And that's obviously way too much bound. So we're gonna go back to 1 second, and I think that's fine. Okay, the next thing that we wanna do is go to our next slide. Tap on this rounded rectangle and we're actually going to round those corners back out. Drag this down here. We're actually going to drag it off the screen a little bit, just make this bar. And we wanted to be mostly lined up with where that is. So I'm just tapping back and forth to see how close they are. They're very close there. So then we come here and we add the transition and we say magic move. And we can see that then it just grows out so that magic move is a really nice transition to have 0. Then we'll say x. And it will ask if we want to duplicate this slide. We already duplicated the slide in order to make this happen. So we can click Cancel there because it's already going to what we want. Now transitions are funny because we can't really set the timing on them. Transitions always going to happen on the tap. But when we export this as a video will be able to set it so that transitions happen automatically. So we'll see that a little bit later on in the course. Okay, let's go on to slide number 5 here and we're just going to add in our text. So let's hit Done. We'll come back here plus and text. So go ahead and just make that quite a bit bigger, just like we've done before. And let's edit the font. I'm going to go back and use quicksand again. You can of course, use whatever you want. Now let's type this in and we'll just put my name here, my brand name. And it's going to want to capitalize that, which normally you would do. But I don't normally capitalize my brand name here and we'll just bring that size back down. Actually don't mind that color of text on that color background. That's okay. But we could try a different color if we wanted to tap on this color, so it gets light gray. Let's just try a complimentary purple here. Too bright, little darker. And we can use the guide to get it in the right alignment there. And then we want to add an animation to this text to bring it in. You can try out different things just to see what they look like. For example, that compression one, I want to see how much I can adjust the size of that so there's bounce on and there's duration, but it doesn't look like I can really adjust how far out it is if it could be closer than I would do it, but it's coming from so far away. So I'm going get rid of that one. So I'll just go here and hit Change. And in this case, the WIP does involve a little bit of transparency. I think when it comes on. Maybe not, but even if it does, because it's on a another color that's not involving transparency, that would probably be fine. Let's try and move in. Moving has a little bit of a bounce to it. I think I like that one, but you can see there's a lot of different ones that you can do. Some of these get to be a little bit crazy. For example, this flame one, I went necessarily use that these are pretty intense, but in the right thing, if you're doing some kind of a parody video or something like that, you might want it. The skids not too bad if we could slow it down, it might work. Try slowing it down to a second. That's not too bad, but I think I actually like to move in better. So let's go ahead and change it again. And you didn't just try a bunch of different ones. Moving is similar. A little speed that one up a little bit. You can see we can turn the bounce on or off. We want that little bounce on the end so it feels natural. 2.5th. And then of course we want to change this to be after transition. So as soon as the transition ends. It will come up. Unfortunately, there is no way to do with transition, so you can't set it up to happen at the same time. So basically, once the transition happens, then the first object can move in. Now let's hit Done. And the next thing that we wanna do for our Lower Third is actually add a place for the organization or the tagline something underneath. Let's add in another rounded rectangle. That's just as place where you would put in your organization that you've got a, another little piece. So the reason I've done this, I want to show you that Let's zoom out here. You can group objects together. So let's select over these guys. And then we'll choose group. And then you can animate them as a group. So we just want them to pop on after the text comes up. So now we can tap on that group, animate it. And we can animate multiple objects together to build in. And I'm just looking for the pop one, I think. Yeah, that looks okay. Let's see what we can adjust here. It looks like just the duration, but I think I just wanted to take a little bit longer to pop up. That's too long. Tried just 1 second. And then we'll have that happen after Build one. So after the first text comes on, then that will happen. Let's preview. There we go. Okay, let's watch it from the top. Go to the first one and hit the Play button, bounce. And then I have to tap to make it actually morph to x comes out. All right, so the next thing that I wanted to do in order to make these disappears, actually do another slide again, so we'll duplicate it and we want those all to disappear as a group. So we want to make them a group. And one thing that happens is when you group stuff together, the animations on it disappear because it's changed into groups. So if you see we opened up this animation. We have a couple of these animations already on our duplicate slide because they copied over. But we need to be out of our animation panel. And then when we select them, we group them together. And then if we go to animate, you'll see there are no animations anymore because that group has no animations on it. So let's add a build out here. We're just going to let it move out. And it moves out across the other side. But we want it to move out from the right. So let's watch that. Okay, and because these slides look exactly the same, we don't need a separate transition on them. They don't need two more for anything. Let's watch the whole thing through. Tap to transition to after transitioning it, and it moves out. It took a second. Let me just make sure that it's on. So it's saying it's on tap. We want that to be after transition. And now that's all ready to go. We've now made a lower third with a bouncing ball that morphs into a rounded rectangle with text on it. And then another rounded rectangle that pops up to display more information underneath. And at some lower thirds you've just want one piece of information and some lower thirds you want to. So this would be an easy one to modify. You could just get rid of that second part if you didn't need the organization or the website or something else there. And that's how you'd go about making a lower third. And then you would apply this using the Luma Key option in luma fusion to make the white disappear. In the next video, we're going talk about making one of those transition animations that just exists on its own and doesn't go over the top of other footing. 9. Making a Transition Animation: All right, Now it's time to make a transition animation which will just exist on its own. It won't overlay our other video footage in luma fusion, so we don't have to worry about keying out any part of it. We're just going go ahead and hit the plus button. Make another blank slide for somebody like this. I like to use these in my travel vlog video is just to transition from one day to the next. Just to have a little fun like animation in the middle to show that there's been a change in time or something like that. So for this one, I am going to make a little scene of the sun going down and the moon coming up, just to show that night has come. So let's go ahead and hit plus, we'll just make a little scene here. I want some hills and I think a circle is going to be the best way to do that. Half the size. And let's make that a green color. And we'll duplicate it. But I can copy. And coming over here and hitting Paste. We're going to need a square for the sky behind it. So let's go ahead and make that there. And then we'll just drag that out to be a rectangle over the whole thing and then we need to take that to the back. So under our format, we have this arrange option and this is where we can drag it through the order. So let's move it behind our hills. Now we'll change our color to a nice sky blue. Let's see. Something like that. Now we need a son, and I think this is where we might need to go looking into some of those other shapes. Let's hit plus, and let's look through our shapes here. Let's try nature that seems like it might have a sun in it. And there we go. There is a son. Let's change it to a nice yellow or orange. When we animate it, we're going want it to go behind these hills, but right now it's on top of it you can see. So let's go ahead and we will drag it behind using our arrange. And we're just going to push it all the way back. We don't want to go behind the sky because then we won't see it anymore, but we do want it to go behind the hills. All right, so now let's add some animation to this. And we want this to be a built out. Could we actually want it to disappear? So let's go ahead and I think we can just do the move out. Course. We want to change the direction of that so that it goes from the top. Let's just see what that looks like. Let's give it a little bit more time. Here we go. Now when that happens, we're going to want this to morph into a night scene, duplicate this slide. We can delete the sun because we're not going to need it. Let's leave the animation, go here and delete the sunshine. And then we want the color of these to change. Let's go ahead and change the color. Because we want it to look dark now. So let's go to our darkest green and a dark, dark blue. So we go from this salinas to here, and I don't know if a morphing animation is the best one for less for if there's something else. And let's see if the Morph transition we'll do what we need. That's pretty good. A sun of course, will go down first. Wipe might actually work well if we do it from the top, Let's see. I would like it if that could happen at the same time that the animation is happening. But unfortunately, that's just not going to be possible. We'll keep it like that for now. Then let's go over here and we want to go out of our animation and we want to add in a moon shape. Now we already have a moon shape up here that we made before. We'll just copy that. Come down here and paste it using two fingers, we can rotate that. So I'm just going to rotate it 45 degrees. Put it about where our son was. Go back to Format, Style and will change its fill to be that yellowish gold color. Okay, and then we want that one to pop on after the transition. So let's animate it and how to build in. Of course, we want it to come from the bottom. And we need to put it behind the hill. So let's leave the animation pane tap on our moon format, arrange and we'll drag it behind the hills canal. Let's watch through this. Could play out and disappears. Hope we need to change our timing. So that's really important that you remember to set your timing up correctly. So let's go ahead and go to our panel and choose after transition. Alright, now let's watch through it all again. Okay, and the last thing I think we want here is to set the sun animation to after transition, so it happens right away. And then on this one we want to have some stars twinkle into existence. So let's go out and we will add a star. I think there's some stars on the basic one. Probably stars. And it looks like we can modify this. Let's drag those in just a little bit. And we'll make these more of a think whitish color. And we want those to kinda twinkle into existence. So let's add an animation to them. And the reason I'm adding the animation first is because I want to be able to copy it and keep that same animation. See what the orbital looks like. Okay, that might be what we want, but that's probably too much spinning. So let's try and lower the duration and see if we get less spinning. Yeah, it's just too much there and we can't change the number of times that it spins. Let's go ahead and change it from orbital. We'll try the scale option. Spin. Twist in scale. So sometimes it can just be a little bit difficult to find what you want. Oh, let's trace shimmer. That might actually be great. First start the little bit much, I wonder what we can adjust on it. Not much. Think the shimmer is probably too much. Maybe sparkle. They just give it too much to, we just want a little bit more subtlety to it. A twirl. Maybe we can adjust the number of times at twirls. Localize counterclockwise, no adjustment on the number of times. So this, you can see it, It's an experimentation. You try different things to see if you can get what you're looking for. And we might be going back to the pop one here. I think the scale is probably where it's going to be because I just wanted to be more subtle than that. Turn a little balance. Okay? So now we go out. We can copy this a couple times. 0 first. Let's go ahead and make that happen after. So we'll say after build one. And then we'll go out. We'll copy this, and we'll just paste it a few times here so that we get a few stars. Let's go back to your enemies. Let's see what this looks like when we preview it. Moon comes up, stars come in. Perfect. That's pretty much exactly what I wanted here. So let's watch through this. Sun goes down, sky changes, moon comes up and stars. So that would just show like the transition tonight. And this is just one example. There are so many things you could do with something like this. You can make your own little animation just to give kind of an animated transitional field to your video. So go ahead, take some time to work on this. It can take quite a bit of work to figure out which animations are the right ones to use on something like this. But take some time, figure out how to make the thing that you sketched be the thing that you have here in Keynote. And in the next video, we're going to talk about exporting these out as video files that we can use in luma fusion. 10. Exporting Video Files From Keynote: Now that we've completed our animations, it's time to go ahead and export these as video files that we can bring into luma fusion. This is a fairly simple process, but you need to know a few things before you get started. First one is note what slides you want to export. So for our first video, we're just going to export this introduction slide, and it's just going to be a single slide. So let's make sure we know which slide that is. It's number three. All right, then let's go up to our And under here we're going to choose Export. Many people don't even realize that they can export a movie out of Keynote or PowerPoint, but it's a very useful feature. Let's go ahead and hit movie. And then we can choose our resolution. Now this will by default be 1080 P, but I always like to go up to 21, 60 p or for K, even though I generally export my timelines out of luma fusion in 1080, I'd like to have the extra resolution. I don't know if this is true or not, but it feels to me like I get a better key if I'm using the green screen or a different chroma key when I actually use the fork. And that may be because of the higher resolution, I'm not sure. But also if I do want to do it for k timeline, then I will have it available to me. Next, choose the frame rate. I always do 30 frames per second because that's the type of project I use. But if you're filming your other footage in 24 frames per second, you can change that here. Slide range is the really important one. Come here. And we're going to choose three to slide 3, then go to next slide after. So this is important if we are exploiting multiple slides, and I'll normally leave that at 0 seconds, so it goes right into the transition. But if there needs to be a pause between slides, you would do that here. Go to next build after has a 0 seconds. We don't really need to worry about that because everything should be set up to not be on tap. But if something is on tap, it will happen after 0 seconds, which is probably the best option to go ahead and hit Export. And it's going to run through this and actually produce each of the frames that we need, then the share will pop up and we're just going to go directly into luma fusion. So now we've actually imported this. You can see it's called Presentation 7. We should probably have given it a name, but we now have this and we can go ahead and drag that down over the top of our footage. We'll go ahead and we'll turn that track on so that we can see it. There you go. We're not going to look into keen then are right now we'll look at that in the next video. Let's go ahead and export our other videos first, we're going to want to get these ones for the lower thirds. That's going to be 4 through 6. Let's do it again. Go here, Export, Movie. Going, leave the settings the same. Choose four to six. Keep it at 000 and export. So you can see now I have presentation 7 dot one that Andrew here. Not on. We can see it play through there. Okay, let's go to our last one. And this is going to be 7 and 8. Export Movie. Leave the settings the same, change to 78. Export luma fusion. Here you can see presentation, so in two, and I'm actually going to drag that one down here because it's a transitional one. Click Play. There we go. So that is how you go about exporting a video file from Keynote into luma fusion. And if you ever need to find those files, they are just here under imported so we can back out here. This is the folder structure in them effusion, it's imported and then other app. Then you're going to see I have a bunch of different keynote ones. So now that we've exported and imported our footage into lumber fusion, we next need to export the file from luma fusion that we can then upload to something like YouTube or Vimeo. So let's go ahead and do that in the next video. 11. Making the Project Video in LumaFusion: Okay, so now let's go ahead and get this file setup to export. You can use any footage that you want for your underlying footage here it doesn't really matter. I just have this footage here. I've turned the audio off. It's just to show that you can overlay your footage. If you have a project you're working on that actually needs animations like this, then that is a great way to go about doing it. But let's go ahead here. I'm just going to use this existing footage and then delete these other ones that I put on here from the example video. And then we're gonna go ahead and turn on or second layer. And then we're going to go ahead and bring these in. So first off, we swap these and I'm going do the title 1 first. And when I split this clip just by hitting the scissors and drag the remaining clip behind so that I have that transitional piece and then I'll put the lower third over here. This is very similar to something I might do in a YouTube video where I'm going to have an introductory thing with the title, then maybe a low animated introduction. And then I'll go back into talking and I'll put in my lower third with my name on it. So let's go ahead and see what we can do here. We're going to tap on the clip itself. And then just like we saw earlier in the course, we're going to go in and adjust the blend mode. And the blend mode technique will be affected by how dark or light the footage underneath it is. So let's go ahead and see what we've got there. We're going into frame and fit and then blending. The thing that we want, probably screen. And we just want to drag through and see what it looks like there. That's quite good there. Now, the contrast between this and the actual footage is not great. So we could resize this and put it over a darker part so we can see how that looks. But I think in this case, we'll just leave it over the top of everything. We can just double-tap a slider and luma fusion to return it to its default. So all we did there was just used the screen to take out the black and leave the white. So Screen blend mode, but you can mess around with other blend modes to see what gives you the best effect. Now for this animation, we don't need to worry about it. It's just a transition animation. It's not going over anything. We don't need to key anything out, so we can just leave that there. And then on this one, we're going to want to use a key. So let's tap on that. Go to Edit. And then we're going to go over to the color and effects. And here we're gonna go to q0 and we're going to try the light limbic key again because I went seem to work well last time. But that one does not seem to work well this time. And this is just a trial and error to see what you get. That might look good if we were going through some kind of retro feel, but that wasn't really the idea. We can try adjusting the luma range here to get just the white and see if that clears it up. So you can see everything disappears when we go down to black, but everything pretty much comes in. So we're still getting some edge lawyer there. So we're going to try the other options here, the erosion distance and the edge blur radius. Okay, I think it looks best with no edge blur radius. We just want to watch and see how that looks with the ball falling down. Because we might need a little bit of a blur there. Okay, That's looking pretty good. So we just use the key. If we'd been using a green screen instead of a white one there, we would have done a green screen key. And the reason we would want to use a green screen key instead of a luma one is if we were using white in the actual animation itself, That's when I would normally go with a green. Otherwise, I think the White works pretty well because this light Luma Key seems to do a good job at masking out the background of the video. So that's all for that. Then all we have to do is export this video so we can hit the Export button in the bottom right. You can choose to export it as a movie and we'll just save it to our photos for now. It wants to go to for k. We're going to just do it at 10 ADP. And I'll just keep the file size down 30 frames per second. And video quality for web in this case, that's fine. If you were doing this for something else, you might want to bring that up to a standard or even quality. But for what we're doing here, Webb will be fine. We just want to be able to see your animations when you share your project. All right, the audio quality, we don't need any audio quality at all. So I'll just take that all the way down to lower the file size. Video codec, H.264 is what we want. Video and audio. We just want Video, MP4, It's just what we want, tells us what the file size will be. And then we hit the Export button. It then we'll take a moment to export that video depending on the length, of course it will take longer or shorter. Once that's done, it says it's saved to photos. So we can actually go to our photos and see that. So here we are in photos and we can play through the animations. This gives us a chance to check the key, see how it's looking, see if there's anything that we need to change before we actually upload it. Okay, all those animations are looking good, so that's no problem. And remember the footage behind it doesn't matter. All we're looking for in this project is to see the animations and how they could overlay on footage. But whatever footage you want to use is fine to go ahead and export your projects, upload them to YouTube or Vimeo or another video sharing site, and then share that link in the project section for this course. In the next video, we'll go ahead and we'll wrap up the course. 12. Course Wrap Up: Thanks so much for watching this course on creating animations on the iPad using Keynote and luma fusion. I hope that you've enjoyed this course, that you've had some fun and that you've learned something along the way. If you are feeling a little overwhelmed or confused right now, don't worry, that's fine. Especially if this is your first time learning about animation, it can be confusing at first. Don't hesitate to re-watch the videos and continue practicing. Practicing is the best way to learn, especially with many of these things that require trial and error, like applying the different animations, two objects inside of keynote, this is true, even if your practice looks bad, you will be learning something about the way you apply those animations. And your animations will continue to improve as you continue to practice. If you have any questions, please put those in the discussion section of this course and I will do my very best to answer them. I really look forward to seeing your projects as well and answering any questions that you might have about those projects. Remember that I have other classes on luma fusion as well that you can take, as well as other iPad apps like Affinity, Photo and designer. You can check those out on my profile page. You can also check out my Ben designs YouTube channel where you can find weekly design videos. And my Ben designs media, Instagram where I do weekly lessons on design principles. So go ahead and check those out if you want to continue learning more. Thanks so much for watching, and I will see you in the next course.
