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.
In this lesson we look at sequence presets, and look at spatial and temporal resolution of timelines in Adobe Premiere Pro.
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.
Tour of my 4k rig.
Recently I’ve been shooting a lot of different projects from stock video, to events, corporate videos and interviews and some personal projects and I’ve had people ask me about my setup.
In this post, I’ll be giving you a tour of one of my common rig configurations.
Drop zones are a great feature of Apple motion that lets you use special placeholder your compositions to easily place or replace graphics and video. In this tutorial, get to know drop zones and why they are such a handy feature to have.
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

Filming in other countries- Mexico
This will be a series of different posts depending on where Im traveling. This year Im traveling to Mexico, Canada, and Thailand. Im going to try and work on my reel, learn about filming, and generally see and capture as much as I can while out and about. I’ll be talking the Following topics for each country:
- Where Am I going?
- What am I doing?
- What am I bringing?
- What did I want to bring but didn’t?
- Why didn’t I bring it?
- Customs/Duties/ laws
So let’s get started
What works and what doesn’t
The Sony a7s and Atomos Assassin are a great combo when shooting together. Though some might say the a7s ii is a better camera because of internal 4k I say yes and no. While its true the a7s ii can record 4k internally it does so in a more compressed lossy format. Theres just no way around that. Being a newer camera it is also priced more than the a7s. Because I wanted a high quality signal in 4k without having to buy an Black magic Ursa (which is heavy and media is still expensive!) I still stick by my decision of of picking up the assassin and a7s. Recently I was in Mexico and decided it was a great opportunity to test my equipment overseas and see how it performs as well as see if I could make a kit that was versitile and easy to work with.
