ripple tutorial updte 7 oct

It's a Tuesday which means a roundup of Ripple's tutorial threesome. We have the weekly MacBreak Studio on locking fonts and a couple of seasonal spooky tutorials!

So what if you are the designer of Motion graphics and you don't want your editors altering the fonts when they use your graphics. In this new episode of MacBreak Studio, Mark Spencer shows Steve Martin how to publish Motion templates controlling what you can change in FCPX and what you can't.

A technique that will be very handy if you have a set of editors working on a project and you need to keep to a consistent graphic style.

As always, great information from the guys at Ripple, if you would like to know more about Motion, make sure you check out Mark's excellent tutorials. If you are new to the application, we can recommend this:

Getting Started in Motion

 

 

Steve on his own shows us a trick with retiming and markers. Have to say this is one effect in FCPX we have never used and we are going to give it a good try out when we can. Maybe not on a horror film though!

 

Finally Mark (still in a Halloween mood) shows us how to make swinging text in Motion.
