    I'm making a keynote presentation and it all looks great, but when i export it to a ppt to view it on a pc all the fancy animations drop off.
    is this normal? or will my preso only look good on a mac?

    Unfortunately PowerPoint doesn't support those cool effects, especially 3D ones :(

    As far as I know, no you can't. OpenOffice may support Keynote's feature better than PowerPoint but simply, PowerPoint can't display those effects because it doesn't support them.

    You could export it to QuickTime. I've had pretty good luck porting to Windows that way. Choose manual advance.

    It doesn't work with Linux though--it just plays straight through like a movie in my experience.
