This week's webinar - Cameras, Sets & Drop Zones in Apple Motion 5.5 - wraps up my four-part series on Apple Motion 5.5. In this session, we'll look at ways to add eye-catching movement to 3D text using cameras, create 3D sets with camera moves and lighting, then create visually stunning 3D templates that we can use in Final Cut Pro. I'm looking forward to building the demos! Expand your creative options about how to use Motion! Registration is FREE.
I have two tutorials this week. For Final Cut editors, I look at how to change the colors of objects in the frame using both color masks and the Hue/Saturation Curves. Both provide lots of options, but only one provides outstanding results.
For Premiere users, I take a closer look at captions; importing, exporting and handling timecode. This grew out of an email conversation last week that got me taking a closer look at how captions REALLY work inside Premiere.
By the way, I am now covering short tips and techniques

Spring is less than four weeks away, but the crisis in Texas reminds us that there is a very fine line separating normal life from catastrophe. So many things we take for granted become essential when they are missing. Now, more than ever, we all depend upon each other. None of us stands alone.
Take care, stay safe and, especially, stay healthy. Until next Monday, edit well.
