Using 3D Cameras, Sets & Lights in Motion 4
This is an advanced title that builds on what Larry Jordan already covered on Motion and takes you deeper into the world of 3D space inside Motion 4.
A camera provides a specific point-of-view from which to view your project in 3D space. Additionally, Motion 4 allows us to build sets, that is, groupings of visual elements, which the camera can move around, between, and through to create ever more complex effects. Adding even more excitement, we can add lights to provide dramatic highlights.
In this session, we will look at how to create cameras, lights, and sets, then animate them in 3D space. While many of these features also work in Motion 3, all our demos will be in Motion 4.
This tutorial builds on earlier Motion sessions.
You should be comfortable working with the Motion interface and have a general understanding of creating 2D motion graphics. If you need an introduction to Motion, please purchase this tutorial first: "Master Motion: Even if Motion Graphics Scare You"
To simplify finding the information you need quickly, we have added more than 40 Chapter markers to this tutorial.
