Learn how to create shapes, rectangles, ellipses, and lines using shape layers.
- [Voiceover] You can create shapes right inside of Motion…using a couple of different tools,…and each tool is aptly named.…For example, if we go ahead and move our mouse to…the middle of our interface here,…you can see these are a bunch of different create tools.…In the leftmost one here,…notices there's kind of a rectangular looking box with…an arrow next to it, so if I click and hold here,…you can see if I want to create a shape called a rectangle,…it is the rectangle tool,…so of course if I want to create something that's circular,…it's the circle tool, and you understand, okay?…So here, I'm going to go ahead and create a rectangle…and we're going to go ahead and create a lower third,…so this is a graphic that appears in…the lower one third area of the scene.…
So here, I'm going to create the rectangle,…so once I've actually clicked on that rectangle object,…I can go ahead and hover over my canvas here…and if I click and drag to the right starting from the left,…I can create this rectangular shape, okay?…
