Working in 3D space

Motion goes to great lengths to make the transition from the 2D world into the 3D world as easy as possible. Let's get started by looking at our project. Press F5 to open the Project pane and you will notice we have one group that has four words on it. Now these words have been moved around and positioned in 3D space, if you open the Inspector and look in the Position data, you will notice they all have x, y, z data. And now it's done using the adjust 3D Transform tool. So, let's make sure that's active and de-select any other words.

The easiest way to switch a scene to 3D is to click on New Camera in the toolbar and you will get some options, whether you want to keep the scene as 2D or switch to 3D. Let's choose Switch to 3D. Notice the icon for the group has changed, notifying us it's now a 3D group. And there are some other controls on the canvas. Let's check out this pulldown menu in the upper-left corner. Click on Active Camera. That's our view right now...
