3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Start a New Hype Pro Document
The best way to learn about animating in Hype is to create a simple animation, such as moving a circle across the screen. Letís start our first Hype document and see what happens. You will soon realize that the tools in the Hype workspace control the CSS properties in our HTML5 based animation.
7. Metrics Inspector in Hype Pro
In the last tutorial, we created our first Hype Pro document and examined the Element Inspector. In this tutorial, we will explore the Metrics Inspector and how to manipulate an element on the screen.
8. Hype Workspace Tools
In the past tutorial, we discussed the most common terms used in animation software. Now we will explore how these terms apply to the Hype workspace and tools.
9. 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.
10. 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.
