Keynote 6 and transparent backgrounds

Posted on: Nov, 2013 By: Mike Weber
With the introduction of Apple Keynote 6  and OS Maverick release there have been many updates.    We have encountered a glitch using Mac and QuickTime movies encoded with a transparent backgrounds  in the new version.  Using previous Keynote versions to open  with their transparent backgrounds works.

While awaiting for Apple to institute a fix for this issue and support for QuickTime alpha channels, you can customize QuickTime to a color scheme that will apply to your image or to the white version.  We can only hope some of the lost features of the previous version get added back in a future  update.  We will continue to a formulate a plan or method to circumvent this problem to enable you to create professional business presentations.

Has the transparent background issue with QT videos been fixed with Keynote 6.2.2? I'm hearing it has but i can't get it to work in ver 6. Thanks.
