Keynote Animation in iMovie: Step-by-Step Tutorial

***NOTE: If on macOS Catalina, make sure you’re running 10.15.2 or later!

In this step-by-step tutorial I show you how to take your iMovie video-creation skills up a notch by incorporating slick animations made with Apple Keynote.

iMovie is a pretty capable, cost-effective video editing application that covers the basics pretty well. But iMovie is limited when it comes to graphics. Luckily, there’s a powerful video graphics and animation tool pre-installed on your Mac: Apple Keynote.

Keynote is more than just presentation software. It’s a video graphics and animation powerhouse (I call it After Effects Lite). But what’s really exciting is the fact that you can export sophisticated, dynamic video animations from Keynote and use them in your iMovie projects! This capability opens up all kinds of creative possibilities for your iMovie videos.
