How to export videos with transparent background from Keynote app?


Question

I'm pretty new to Keynote app and I've created a series of animated presentations I'd like to export as video with a transparent background. I'm using its latest update version 6.5.3, so far the most recent one. Perhaps I'm missing something, but it turns out I simply can't find which settings to tweak in order to do that.

Bellow are the actual version's export as Quicktime video options, it seems there's no option to include transparency. By choosing the "Custom" option only allows to set a custom crop size for the video.

Actual version video export options

In older versions an option to include transparency was available.

Older versions video export options

My slideshow presentation was created using only one slide with the background color set to 0%, this seems not to help as it results on a video with plain black background after export.

Any help appreciated.

I had this same issue, but I've just found a solution! In Export options, select "Format > Custom", then choose at Compression Type: "Apple ProRes 4444".

Follow these steps and Keynote will create a transparent background MOV file.

Cheers!
