The real-time engine in Motion 3, a component of Apple's Final Cut Studio 2, gives motion graphics designers the freedom to continually experiment and adjust while they work. Ian Robinson explores how to get the most from this unique application, while also sharing his own essential motion graphics techniques. Along with teaching the fundamentals of video and audio work, he looks at Motion 3's new 3D tools in depth. Ian demonstrates the use of behaviors to create organic movement in particle systems and camera moves without keyframes. He also discusses effective integration with the other Final Cut Studio applications, and much more. Example files accompany the course.
So you have got a client that has watched a lot of commercials, and they like the look of the car commercials where all the graphics are tied to it as it whizzes around the scene. Of course they have shot some stuff and they want you to do the same. Well, with Motion 3 it's pretty straightforward. If it's not already open, we are on the 02_Applying_ Match_Move Project. Hit F5 and open your Layers tab. Turn on the Match Move text and its Underline. Click on Underline, go to Add Behavior, Motion Tracking, Match Move.
Open the Inspector, and you'll notice it automatically assumed the source was the layer below. Well, that's not the case, so lets drag it out. Now drag the Track Move video into the Source well. The anchor point that's going to use for the Match Move needs to be attached to an area of the car that's very distinct. So I'm going to drag it to the gas tank right here on the edge. Now click Analyze. One of the things I love about the Match Move in Motion is the fact that it analyzes once, and then you can take that data and apply that to everything else in the scene.
Rewind your playhead to the beginning. Now select the text. Go up to Add Behavior, Motion Tracking, Match Move, and you'll notice this little pull-down. Go ahead and click it and choose the Underline Match Move option. This is taking the Match Move data that is already been analyzed from the Underline and applying it to the text. Now close your Layers tab, F5, and hit your spacebar, and enjoy the move.
So as you can see, with Match Move in Motion 3, creating some complex graphic effects really isn't that hard.
