macbreak studio 174 shapes masks apple motion

We're sure this new short tutorial from the MacBreak Studio guys will open a lot of creative possibilities by showing readers how to use shapes and masks and their conversion in Motion.

In a glacially slow week for industry news as either everybody is on holiday or working, it is good to know that our normal duo of Mark Spencer and Steve Martin are still cranking out the tutorials.

In this latest episode of Macbreak Studio, Mark shows Steve (although we are sure he already might know this!) how to convert shapes into masks and vice versa. Very handy information for those who need to do a lot of cutout work with Motion graphics.

Don't forget to check out Steve's and Mark's training books for FCPX and Motion.
