Advanced Apple Motion

Course Summary

In our Apple Motion Intermediate training course we take a deeper dive into keyframe interpolation, filters and effects. We will explore the use of masking in our compositions, as well as look at extended use of behaviors. Furthermore we will use emitters and replicators to add depth to our projects. Lastly we will explore the world of 3d compositions in Motion including light layers and cameras.
After this introductory training session, participants should understand most of the features Motion has to often in terms of compositing and motion graphics. Additionally students should understand how 3D layer groups function, as well as cameras and light layers.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be fluent in the software and have the necessary resources for creating compelling compositions. In addition to creating assets for use in Motion, attendees should be able to create resubale,

adjustable motion graphic templates/titles and transitions for use within Final Cut Pro X.
