Introducing Motion, the only motion graphics package with real-time previews, procedural behavior animation and Final Cut Pro HD integration.
Apples high-performance motion graphic design and production application lets you explore new creative territory using self-propelled behavior animation, character-by-character title animation and a powerful new interface. Motion integrates seamlessly with Final Cut Pro HD and DVD Studio Pro 3, making it quicker and easier than ever to create motion graphics for film, video and DVDs.
Real-Time Instant Gratification
Motion is fine-tuned to maximize the hardware and architecture of the Power Mac G5 and Mac OS X Panther. The result? Real-time on-screen responsiveness and interactivity that feels like a dedicated system. Move and resize video layers interactively, add filters at full resolution and watch keyframe and behavior animations come to life instantly. If youre using Motions advanced particle generator, you can adjust the angle, color and rate in real-time while the effect is playing.
New procedural animation technology called behaviors creates movement and simulations without keyframes. Simply drag and drop one of over 40 customizable behaviors onto type or graphics. There are four kinds of behaviors: basic, text, simulation and parameter. You can customize and combine them to create unique effects. For frame-by-frame control and precision use Motions innovative, powerful keyframe toolset with Bezier and B-spline controls.
Industrial Strength Templates
Motion templates are professionally designed for applications such as broadcast news, entertainment, event video, corporate presentations and DVD motion menus. You can customize them to your needs or cut and paste individual elements to build new ones. Presets for text styles, gradient colors and particles for rain, smoke and fire provide a solid foundation for creating a custom look quickly and easily
Motion works in perfect harmony with Apples suite of professional applications including Final Cut Pro HD, DVD Studio Pro 3, Shake 3.5, Soundtrack and Logic Pro 6 to give you an uninterrupted production workflow. For example, you can modify Final Cut Pro HD cuts, layers, blend modes and motion paths in Motions timeline. Or if youre working in Final Cut Pro HD, you can even launch Motion right from its timeline. When youre ready to create your DVD, you can drag and drop your completed Motion titles, DVD motion menus and animations onto DVD Studio Pro 3. Whats more, DVD Studio Pro 3 automatically encodes your Motion projects to MPEG-2, so you dont have to.
