Keynote Animations 4.0
Jumsoft today released Keynote Animations 4.0, a one-of-a-kind collection of 150 animated objects with transparent backgrounds designed to add pizazz to Apple Keynote presentations and Pages documents. The company says it is the third major revitalization of a Keynote add-on program in the past months--earlier releases included Keynote Stills 3.0 and Keynote Photos 2.0. Jumsoft's revised animations package contains 50 new movie clips for layering over or under Keynote theme layouts or electronic text files generated in Pages. Within Apple's Keynote, these animations can be changed in size, rotated, increased or decreased in opacity, fitted with shadows or even overlapped with one another to create extra-special special effects. The full collection of 150 now includes animated illustrations applicable to the fields of business, science, education, engineering, law and many more. Keynote Animations 4.0 requires any version of Apple Keynote or Pages and is available as a download for $45 (upgrades from v3.x are $25).
