- Hi, I'm Ian Robinson. Welcome to Motion 5 essential training. In this course, I'll show you the ins and outs for using this real time motion graphics application. We'll take a look at the different ways to animate objects in a project using traditional key frames and Motion's very own animation tools known as behaviors. We'll use the text design tools to create graphics as simple as a lower third, or complex as a title open. We'll learn the finer points of text animation, like text on path movements, and animating individual characters in a word.

I'll show you some of Motion's most exciting features like replicators, particle systems, and generators, to create original animated art from scratch. Finally, we'll take a look at how to animate all of these elements in 3D space. I'm really excited to show you what Motion 5 is capable of, and to share with you some of my Motion graphics tips and tricks, so lets get started with Motion 5 essential training.
