Today we added QuickTime support to our animated clipart section. You can now download any of our animations as a QuickTime (.MOV) file.
But what does this mean for you?
If you are using a Mac computer with either Keynote or PowerPoint, these new files will look fabulous. You can download the QuickTime files with a transparent background and even have semi-transparent shadows and reflections included. The transparent versions of the QuickTime files include an alpha channel which defines the transparent areas of the animations.
The QuickTime files can also be downloaded with a solid color background. The solid color background animations will even work with the Keynote App on the iPad.
Things to keep in mind.
- QuickTime files are best used on a Mac computer.
PowerPoint 2010 does have support for QuickTime, if you have QuickTime installed, but we recommend sticking with the animated .gif files on the PC.
- The iPad will only support the solid color background versions.
- The file size for the transparent versions is larger than the solid versions, so go sparingly if you want to keep your presentation file size down.
