In apple Motion 5.4 and up you can now make changes to your project in terms of resolution and themes etc.
One item you can’t change however is the framerate in which your project is running. Having your project in 1 frame rate vs the rest of your projects or footage in another frame rate can cause serious issues when compositing.
I Normally dont go into a lot of Plugins with my lessons, but this is a special case that lets me do and make things in FCPX and apple Motion that I normally couldnt do at all.
Screen replacements using Mocha. I had actually finished these hours before I left for Thailand, however never posted my process on them.
I was given the raw 6k footage from a red Dragon via USB drive and tracked each of the screens using Boris Mocha. For a scene or two where we had a finger covering the image, I had to separately track that out.
Keyframes are an animation fundamental. If you are new to animating. or to keyframes this lesson is for you. In this lesson we explore what keyframes are, and how to start using them in Apple Motion to create compelling motion graphics
Behaviors are one of the great features in Apple Motion. It allows me to create complex animations that can be applied to several properties and formats of text layers.
In this tutorial I cover the following topics:
What are Text behaviors?
How are they different from regular behaviors?
Different types of behaviors
Using Text behaviors
Applying text behaviors
Adjusting text behaviors
Modifying text behaviors
Duplicating text behaviors
Retiming text behaviors
Creating a custom text behavior

A collection of mObject tutorials.
The reality is clients want and expect eye catching 3D graphics nowadays. In After Effects you are limited to using the raytracer which sucks, using Cineware which can be time consuming, or springing for Element3D.
But what if you dont want to pay a monthly fee to Adobe?
Apple Motion is a one time payment that offers full 3D text out of the box with reflections and shadows.
And if you want to spring for MOTIONVFX mObject, it works very similarly to element 3D!
Ever wonder what it takes to create an animated lower third to be used as a template?
Heres a process video that I put together of one of the last projects I was just working on to create a couple lower thirds that can be adjusted on the fly in after effects.
