1. Snow Flurry Emitter in Apple Motion
One of the great features in Apple Motion is the Particle Emitters, which has fully customizable parameters to achieve just about any effect. Let's use a Particle Emitter to add snow to our Winter Berries clip. Because the scene is a closeup of the berries, we need large and fluffy snowflakes.
2. Tumult Hype and Pro Intro
Hype and Hype Pro by Tumult are Mac OS X applications for creating keyframe-based HTML5 animations and interactive content which can be used on desktops, smartphones and iPads. Most of the time, one thinks of using Hype to create website interactivity.
3. Animation Software Terms
When using animation software, there are several common terms with which you need familiarity. Although there are slight differences in the use of these terms between software, the basic definition does not change.
4. Background Clips in Apple Motion Project
After creating a mockup in Motion for the basic scenes of our Winter Wonderland template, we can start to build the three animated background clips for the template. Remember that our mockup had four scenes, with a different background image for each scene 1 through 3.
5. Image Preparation for Holiday Intro Video
In this tutorial, we will begin to work on the four-scene holiday season motion graphics intro video, by preparing the three images that we chose for our video in the last tutorial. We know that our video dimensions in Motion will be 1280 x 720 pixels and the images are 1920 x 1280 pixels.
6. Why Hype 3.5 and Pro
In the next few tutorials, we will take a close look at Tumult Hype Pro and take note of the features and tools for creating HTML5 interactive animation for all modern browsers and mobile devices.
7. * Article Index - Animation Main Index
Tutorials and articles about ScreenFlow, iBooks Author, iMovie, Flash, After Effects, video marketing.
8. Apple Motion Defocus Filter
In this lesson, we will begin working on the scenes for our Winter Wonderland opener, by adding the effects that will animate the scenes. For the first scene, we will use the Defocus filter, which will act as a nice beginning transition. Let's apply this filter to the Scene 1 group.
9. Whiteboard Video Scribe Animation - Preparation
If you are interested in making a whiteboard or video scribe animation in Motion and don't know where to start, this tutorial may help. There are two types of simulations used in a whiteboard animation. One is a drawing simulation and the other is a writing simulation.
10. Winter Wonderland Opener - Image Import
In this lesson, we will set up our new project and import the photos that we have chosen to use in our Winter Wonderland holiday opener video, in preparation to add the effects that will animate the still images.
