1. 3D Transform and Distort Tools in Motion
In this tutorial, we will continue the holiday project by adding the first part of the 3D rotation of the holiday text. It will rise from the snow to a standing position. This is a simple 3D task in Motion that doesn't even require the use of 3D cameras.
2. Animation Behaviors in Motion Project
Now that we have imported our layered Photoshop image into our Motion project, we are ready to create a blinking lights animation. We will draw some colored circles that we will then animated to blink using Motion behaviors.
3. Moving Graphics in 3D in Motion
In this tutorial, we will build the second half of our text animation for our holiday Motion project. We will continue to use the 3D Transform tool in Motion to move our text graphic in 3D space.
4. Importing Photoshop Images into Motion
In this tutorial, we will continue to work on our holiday animation in Motion. In the last tutorial, we created the graphic elements in Photoshop, which we will now import in to our Motion project.
5. Finishing the Holiday Animation in Motion
Now we will work on the shadow text in our Motion project. We want to use the Distort tool to adjust the height of the shadow text to reflect the movement of the holiday message text. We will also add a fade in transition to the shadow text over the first 10 frames.
6. Motion 5 101 - Overview and Workflow Guide
This free video tutorial, entitled Motion 5 101: Overview and Workflow Guide by Michael Wohl is a good introduction to Apple Motion 5. It will give you an understanding of what you can create with Motion 5 and how it integrates with Apple Final Cut Pro.
7. Adding Glow Filter in Motion Project
In this Motion tutorial, we will add the Glow filter to our circle animated light. The Glow Filter will soften the edges of the circle to match the soft edges of the Bokeh lights in the background.
8. ScreenFlow Annotations and Nested Clips
In the last tutorial, you learned how to add text to a marketing video short and build the company logo with a combination of text and an imported logo graphic. We can use ScreenFlow’s Annotations feature to draw the line under the company name and complete the logo.
9. Remove Movie Clip with ActionScript 3
Now that we programmed Flash to move our movie clip from the Flash Library and place it on the stage, we can work on the ActionScript that will close this movie clip. The easiest way is to create a Close button and add ActionScript to go with it that will remove our movie clip from the stage.
10. Add a Hyperlink to a Button in Adobe Flash CS3 Professional
Many readers have asked how to create links in Flash movies that will take your visitor to another website such as your eBay store. In most cases, this link will either be a button or a text link. In this tutorial, we will take a look at how to create a button link in your Flash movie.
