Apple Community Summit 2024 Presentation 

Out of This World Presenting

With James Dove

This session explores how you can use Keynote and Images  to create a profession video for your classes. You can use this session to help you build your own in class video teaching tool or as a live presentation to present content to your class.



In Keynote you can now add USDZ models. The effects can be really dramatic when you add animations and MagicMove



Here is a some simple steps to follow in creating your own:   

  • Open Keynote and get a blank slide 
  • Drag and drop your USDZ file onto your Keynote slide 
  • On iPad Two Finger Tap Transition on the slide or on Mac tap Animate and select Magic Move 
  • Tap Done 
  • Tap Duplicate and move, wheel and resize your 3D element
  • Tap Play to check the speed.
  • Go back to magic move settings and change the speed. 
  • Experiment with animation builds and Live video. 

See what you can build: 


I have found that creating content in this way engages students and encourages learning. . However even better is when students make and share their own knowledge creating their own Keynotes. Great for Humanities, Science, Design Technology and Languages.

Here is an example of what can be created.
