[prMac.com] Asheville, NC - KeynotePro today is pleased to announce the introduction of Fuse* for Keynote '09. Fuse* is unlike any Keynote theme you've ever used before. We began with a structured, layer-driven framework - vibrant color infusing translucent panels from beneath, balanced against high-visibility focal accents - all set into a striking side-dominant arrangement that only hints at the potential energy hidden underneath. Fuse* is available in two distinct Palettes - AC & DC - both framing a range of traditional content, photo and narrative-driven slide masters, with eye-catching charts, tables, and layouts throughout. But these Static forms only tell part of the Fuse* story.
Fuse* truly comes to life in the Fuse* Kinetic themes. Kinetic themes embed Build-In and Build-Out settings for slide-level objects right into the Master Slide - producing a jaw-dropping, motion-graphics inspired feel with little more than a point click. On every Kinetic Master, the Fuse* layouts emerge in choreographed motion, building the principal elements in piece by piece in an arranged, ordered flow. Select a Kinetic Master, add your copy or supporting photography, and press Play to watch it all happen.
The Fuse* themes include 31 master slides - a mix of traditional content and photo-driven styles, along with narrative-oriented additions like the Overlay Caption styles and mirrored Reverse masters for key layouts. The core layouts balance both the bright AC and understated DC palettes against a layer-driven, semiopaque shape architecture and framing elements that naturally push your content to center-stage. Fuse* HD, available exclusively in the Fuse* Pro and Pro Mobile Editions, expands the style into HD format with aspect-optimized 16:9 and 16:10 versions of the Fuse* design.
The Fuse* EP Edition themes - included in the Fuse* Pro Mobile Edition built to take the Fuse* style to the iPhone/iPod Touch or classic-format video-capable iPod in a format optimized for small-screen viewing. Fuse* EP Edition for classic-format video iPods includes 31 complete Master Slides: a wide range of text and photo-oriented designs cross-optimized for iPod and television display. Fuse* EP Edition for iPhone/iPod Touch includes the complete 31 Master Slide base of the HD themes, optimized for viewing on the iPhone or iPod Touch's larger, HD-leaning display.
