Creating green screen animations with Keynote

Last year I used to keep my magic move Keynote lesson and the green screen lesson separately but this year I saw some potential to merge them.

Students created two copies of an animation using shapes in Keynote. The first version would have a picture or coloured background. The second version would have a green background. The idea behind this is that students would export both animations as movies before importing them into Green Screen by Do Ink. 

When using Do Ink the first version of the animation would be on the base layer, the green background version would be the top layer and the student would position themselves in between. This allows students to step inside their animations.

Below is an example of how this works.
