Motion is an amazing app for making motion graphics and other animations for your video projects. In this 5-hour tutorial you'll learn everything you need to know to confidently incorporate Motion into your Final Cut Pro workflow.
Produced by Michael Wohl
, our Star Final Cut Studio Trainer, this tutorial begins with an overview of the Motion workspace that takes you through all the major editing windows while showing you how file management works in Motion 4.
You'll move on to get deep instruction in creating Text & Shapes, using Generators, Behaviors, & Filters to automatically create animations, and working with items in your project to create drop shadows, skews distortions, and other creative effects.
Animations wouldn't exist without keyframes, so there's a detailed section on how to tween items to create your own custom animated presentations. The tutorial ends with a focused exploration of Particle Systems and Replicators - two of the most powerful (and complicated) tools available inside Motion 4.
You'll also learn how to use Motion 4 to drop the background out of Green Screen shots, and even motion track items on screen to assist you in the process of creating complex matte effects.
