Last week's webinar: Advanced Techniques in Apple Motion took a different approach to showcasing what Motion could do. Rather than show features, I created four stand-alone projects: Animated background, Animated Text on a Cover, Simulations and Chroma-key. This webinar was very well-received and is now available in my store.
As well, I have three excerpts from last week. Probably my favorite is a detailed explanation on how to animate text on a curve. However, creating cast shadows and an illustrating particle emitters and simulations are also very interesting. You'll find all of them in the Tutorials & Reviews section, below.
I am fascinated by the lighting tools available in Motion, but I've never presented them in a webinar. These lights can be used for 2D video, 3D sets, even saved as a template and used in Final Cut. I'm looking forward to sharing what I've learned with you this week. And, like all my live webinars, registration is free.
Another new article is based on a question from Jon Gay
, asking how to motion track and blur multiple objects using
Apple Motion. This is useful when you need to hide multiple elements
or want to highlight them. I'll show you both options.
As winter - and the virus - continue seemingly interminably, I am reminded of a quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt: “We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.” Better days are still to come - I like that.
Stay healthy - stay hopeful. And, until next Monday, edit well.
