Learn how to create stunning motion graphics and animations for video production. Author Ian Robinson explains how to format and animate type with the Transform Glyph tool and explores Motion's real-time 3D tools. The course also covers working in 3D space, creating depth with lights and shadows, keying green screen effects, and working with particle systems. In addition, Ian offers practical advice on integrating Motion into a professional video workflow and explains how to work smarter using rigs and templates.
Hello, everyone! I want to talk to you about next steps. Now we've covered the essential tools you'll need to get up and running in Motion, but if you want to push yourself, there are definitely plenty of more resources out there. For instance, if you're taking this Motion course, you should probably look at taking the Final Cut X Essential Training Course. You'll get a wonderful overview of absolutely everything about Final Cut, and you'll be able to actually integrate the use of both of the applications.
Now if you are an old-school Final Cut user and really miss Final Cut 7, there is a great training series on migrating from Final Cut 7 to Final Cut Pro X. Now if you're really hardcore about Motion, definitely keep going and learn some more by taking my Motion: Principles of Motion Graphics course. In there we will actually use some of the applied principles for creating motion graphics in general and take advantage of all the tools within Motion and cover some of the more advanced features like dynamic transitions or particles in depth.
Now there also some really awesome short courses that Chris and Trish Meyer have in the library on Motion for Lighting Effects in Post and Natural Lighting Effects. And finally, I just want to take this time to thank you for checking out this course. I hope you take this information and get inspired to create something new and exciting.
