Motion 5 101 - Overview and Workflow Guide
This free video tutorial, entitled Motion 5 101: Overview and Workflow Guide by Michael Wohl is a good introduction to Apple Motion 5. It will give you an understanding of what you can create with Motion 5 and how it integrates with Apple Final Cut Pro.
Finishing the Holiday Animation in Motion
Now we will work on the shadow text in our Motion project. We want to use the Distort tool to adjust the height of the shadow text to reflect the movement of the holiday message text. We will also add a fade in transition to the shadow text over the first 10 frames.
Moving Graphics in 3D in Motion
In this tutorial, we will build the second half of our text animation for our holiday Motion project. We will continue to use the 3D Transform tool in Motion to move our text graphic in 3D space.
3D Transform and Distort Tools in Motion
In this tutorial, we will continue the holiday project by adding the first part of the 3D rotation of the holiday text. It will rise from the snow to a standing position. This is a simple 3D task in Motion that doesn't even require the use of 3D cameras.
Adding Glow Filter in Motion Project
In this Motion tutorial, we will add the Glow filter to our circle animated light. The Glow Filter will soften the edges of the circle to match the soft edges of the Bokeh lights in the background.
Animation Behaviors in Motion Project
Now that we have imported our layered Photoshop image into our Motion project, we are ready to create a blinking lights animation. We will draw some colored circles that we will then animated to blink using Motion behaviors.
Importing Photoshop Images into Motion
In this tutorial, we will continue to work on our holiday animation in Motion. In the last tutorial, we created the graphic elements in Photoshop, which we will now import in to our Motion project.
Motion 3D Animation - The Graphics
Animation in 3D can be confusing but Apple Motion has easy to use controls that help you easily create professional grade animation. In this next few tutorials, we will build a simple Motion intro for the holiday season.
Motion Preset Particle Emitters
In the previous tutorial, we started our study of a Motion particle system and learned the simple parts of that system, the Cell and Emitter. In this tutorial, we will take a look a some of the preset particle emitters in the Motion Library.
Particle System - Line Emitter
In the previous Motion tutorial, we examined the Shape parameter, which controls the emission area for our snowfall particle system. From the various options, we decided to use the Line option for the Shape parameter to create our snowfall.
