    is it possible to play an mp3 within a keynote slide while showing a movie at the same time?

    i've got a slide with a flash animation and i'd like to play music along with it. i was able to place both the flash file and the mp3 file but the mp3 just appears as an icon and won't play.

    hi chut. john here. try clicking an extra click after the icon appears. (sometimes, it works for me as it reads the mp3 file as the next "build" in the presentation)

    hope it works. looking forward to your presentation on monday.

    It is possible. Go to edit > place > choose ( chooese the file ). The problem is when you change slide the music file also stops. As a work around I play iTunes in the background.

    im trying to do this trick. as in now.

    1. export keynote presentation as quicktime.
    2. create a new keynote presentation (blank)
    3. copy-paste .mov to slide 1.
    4. add the music (mp3)
    5. export it again as quicktime.

    ill let you know in a few. hope it'll work.

    does anyone here have any idea if you there is a software that we can add in Keynote which makes 3D animations of objects? Is this possible with Keynote? Any suggestions here? Thanks

    For 3D animation, what I do is create it as a Flash file, and put it in Keynote.
