In Motion 4 Essential Training, Ian Robinson shows how to start building outstanding motion graphics and animations for video production. He demonstrates how to build custom text animations with the new Adjust Glyph tool and explores Motion’s amazing real-time 3D tools. Ian highlights working in the 3D space, creating depth with lights and shadows, and using reflections to add realism. He gives practical advice on how to integrate Motion into a professional video workflow, round-tripping with Final Cut Pro and sending a final project to Compressor. Exercise files accompany this course.
If you use Motion to create your DVD Studio Pro project, it's very easy to go back and make changes, and have those changes update back into DVD Studio Pro. So let's go ahead and import a Motion project. If DVD Studio Pro isn't already open, go ahead and launch it. Let's click to Import button, go to Chapter 17, and we'll just import 17_03, and you'll notice the file imports right into DVD Studio Pro. If we select it, it interprets the file as a QuickTime video file, and will give you a little preview if you scroll through, and unfortunately since it is interpreted as a QuickTime file, it does not support the use of drop zones, or editable text.
But that's okay, because DVD Studio Pro has a plethora of different button styles that you can easily drag- and-drop to add to your project. If you want to go back and make an edit in Motion, all you do is Ctrl-click on the file, and say Open with Editor. This will automatically launch Motion, and open the original project, then if you make any changes, it will update back into DVD Studio Pro once you click Save in Motion.
