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 creating templates for Final Cut Pro is the exact same process as creating templates for Motion. So in the previous movie we already created our template that we can use for Final Cut Pro. I know it's going to work in Final Cut because if you select your Text layer and go to your Inspector under the Text tab, you'll notice down here Publish to FCP is already checked by default. So now when I load that template into Final Cut Pro, it will automatically work. So let's go to Final Cut Pro. Next time you have a project open, go to Sequence and choose Add Master Template.
Scroll down to your CustomPlate and choose it and click Open. Now you'll notice when you go to the controls, we have our drop zone where you can just drag your footage right into the drop zone. And if you want to change your text, double-click and change your text. Same thing with the episode title that I had here before. Let's go back to the Video layer, you can just drag it and drop it right into your timeline. So Final Cut will use your template just like any other piece of footage. So templates for Final Cut.
