Motion 3 105/3D in Motion-this has the usual great system of small bits of info in short movies, one bit per movie. Not five or ten pieces of info in a 30 minute movie. It's easy to re-run in case you just didn't get it the first or second or tenth time.
The instructor, Jim Kanter, has a pleasant speaking voice and he speaks in a calm and conversational way. It doesn't seem that anything was left out and he never seemed rushed or hesitant about the instruction.
This volume is still valid for Motion 4 so that's a plus as well.
Great job, well done, thanks

I watched this amazing 3D Motion video. Jim Kanter uses a simple and easy to follow method
to demonstrate how to create the 3D effects in 3D space. It is most interesting and stimulating. I would like to watch more of his video in 3D. I look forward to create some of my own work. Many thanks to macProVideo for producing such an interesting video.

Jim goes a long way to demystifying 3D in Motion. In a clear and concise fashion the tutorials are just what you need to tame those unruly lights and cameras. Many thanks for the effort in producing Motion 3 105.

Really cool, to see the possibilities of motion. But 2 little remarks: 1) The training speed is al little slow. Jim is a perfectionist. In a training is the final layout not always important, but the way you do it. It's learning tool. 2) Motion is very slow on my MACPRO system, so I can't do any of this cool stuff. And that's very frustrating. Maybe you can help? My MacPRO struggles with M3, and I'm not the only one.

Thank you for producing Motion 3 105: 3D In Motion. I am only through the first couple of chapters, but have already learned enough of the basics regarding 3D to take my graphics to the next level.

Motion 3 105 is what I have been waiting for. It gives basic instruction on cameras, lights, camera movements, etc. in 3D space and explains how to use each of these in production editing and final view release. If you are new to 3D Motion... this is the tutorial you need to get up and running quickly. I highly recommend it. If you are a seasoned veteran, this is a great review of the features of Motion 3. I promise you will learn a few new tricks.

It is a great pleasure to watch 3D in Motion Tutorial for theory and praxis are fully covered. It would be a great help to the student to be able to obtain the video clips of the famous video wall for training.

Wow, this was not what I expected. It really explained a lot about working in 3D space. Foundational concepts, not a bunch of flashy tricks. Solid information. Textbook. There were some decent tutorials to work through, I think if the video files used were downloadable, I might be more inclined to work along with the tutorial. I would definitely purchase more Motion-oriented videos from this trainer.
