Use Final Cut Pro X with Keynote to Make Videos from Slides

Watch this video to see how you can use Apple Keynote with Final Cut Pro X to make videos from your slides.

This is one example of a workflow. There are other ways to do it. I just really like this one.

I hope you find it helpful. Enjoy!

    Hey, thanks Bernie!

    I love this Izzy. Very well done. It sure beats how I have been doing this- doing a screen capture of the keynote while I narrate. I always lost some video quality. Will Keynote also export embedded video in the presentation slides?

    Just curious, is there a reason not to use the voice over function in Keynote? It maintains the correct timing when you convert the presentation to a Quicktime.

    John, That’s definitely another option. The main reason I like the method I demonstrated is that I think it’s easier when you’re doing multiple “takes”.

    I guess it’s just easier to be more precise. I think a lot of the recorded slide videos out there are difficult to watch because people just hit record and talk. If they did multiple takes, the videos would be tighter and easier to watch.

    Just my thoughts… Thanks for the question!

    on a somewhat related note – I do a LOT of having to convert PowerPoint presentations to video and when working in FCP6, I nearly ALWAYS ended up removing ALL of the animations, transitions, etc., and converting the slides to JPEG, as even the Mac version of Office didn’t do a very good job of exporting the presentation to QT.

    However we STILL have a number of clients who want to have their animations, transitions, builds, etc. as part of the video. Does keynote import these types of slides from PPT well enough that the method you demonstrate here could be used now with FCPX?

    Hi Izzy. I am simply amazed at how well done your tutorials are. I am french from Quebec, and I did not find any french tutorials coming even close to yours.
    Congratulation and many thanks.
