    First of all, I have searched the forums and google for this but didn't find anything and I apologize there is something on this topic.

    I have a keynote presentation I've been working on and saved it to .ppt. When I opened it in Powerpoint 2007 via Bootcamp, most of the transitions went away.

    Is there anyway to export all the transitions to Powerpoint?

    Powerpoint does not support all the transitions that keynote does. Therefore when keynote exports to powerpoint it removes transitions that powerpoint does not have.

    So you are sort of stuck in regards to getting the fancier transitions to be exported, if you stick to simple transitions (I favour these anyway) then you should be fine.

    Aww :(

    Is there any other way around this?

    I guess I'm being too picky. Oh well. I guess it doesn't matter...

    But how do I know when a certain transition does work? Will most of the 2d work?

    Most, if not all of the transitions in Keynote are OpenGL-based. Windows won't be able to deal with them.

    Oh ok that makes sense.

    I know that Windows has Direct X instead right?

    Oh well. Thanks guys.

    It's as simple as the two programs having different transitions, and implementing them differently. You'll just have to make new ones with PowerPoint (or export your Keynote presentation as a QuickTime movie.... not ideal by any means).
