My Pitt Video: Keynote 6 Compatibility

With the My Pitt Video (Panopto) Recorder for Mac OS X 10.6 - 10.9, presenters have the ability to capture their Keynote slide presentations.  The My Pitt Video (Panopto) Recorder has had compatibility with Keynote up to Apple's free update to version 6 which was released on October 22, 2013. The latest update is not compatible with the My Pitt Video (Panopto) Recorder because some features from iWork '09 are not available in the initial release. At this time, we suggest that users do not upgrade to Keynote 6 if your workflow includes capturing Keynote slide contents with the My Pitt Video (Panopto) Recorder for Mac OS X. Users are encouraged users to continue using Keynote 5 for capturing slides, as you are able to have Keynote 5 installed along side of Keynote 6.

If you still wish to capture your Keynote presentation, or you've already upgraded to Keynote 6.0, you have a few options:

Capture your screen

You may capture your screen while presenting in Keynote.

Note: doing this will capture what is being shown on your screen. However, it will not create events for each individual slide, nor index the content from the slides.

Present your Keynote presentation in Office for Mac PowerPoint

Within Keynote, you have the ability to save your presentation in PowerPoint format. Doing this will preserve slide indexing, and allow viewers to search for terms in the My Pitt Video (Panopto) Viewer.

To do this, open your Keynote presentation. Once open, choose File->Export from your menu bar. A dialog box will appear in Keynote from which you should choose PPT and click Next. You will then be given the option to change the document name and storage location. Please note that all slide transitions may not be available in Office for Mac PowerPoint.
