New Trace Animation Effect in Apple Keynote

Apple released the new Keynote in October 2014, in line with its new OS X Yosemite.

What got me curious is its new Trace Animation effect.



I created a Keynote presentation slide to test the new Trace Animation.

  1. On a slide, insert a text box with texts, and go to Animate on the top right.
  2. Click Add an Effect under Build In tab.
  3. Scroll down all the way under Special Effects till you see Trace.
  4. Click on Trace. 
  5. Enjoy the the cool trace effect.
To see exactly how it traces, slow it down by increasing the duration.

You can use the effect bullet point by bullet point.  Select By Paragraph under Delivery.

Trace animation works on shapes too, but not on tables, charts and media.

Try it yourself and let me know what you think.
