Better late than never. Not even out of timezone communications and the search for a stable wifi connection can stop us publishing this week's MacBreak Studio. It's all about text animations in Motion5.
If you're a fan of Motion then you are in for a treat. Andy Neil has published some of his full length tutorials on YouTube. This means of course that you get his great in-depth instruction on building graphics for free!
It seems simple to track a point in Motion and attach an object, right? Wrong, it's not as simple as you think and there are many gotchas along the way. Hopefully this MacBreak Studio will save some of the pain encountered when you try to link things together.
When Mark and Steve recorded this MacBreak Studio, they probably didn't realise it would get eclipsed by the Mac Pro and other announcements from Apple yesterday. Some good Motion tips on behaviors in this episode.
When we think of colour correction with the Apple Pro Apps, the colour board in Final Cut Pro is normally the first thing that springs to mind. Motion however has a lot of built in filters that go beyond the board's capabilities.
