Motion 5.x: Add the Illusion of Depth [video]

Posted on by Larry

[This is an excerpt from a recent on-line video training: 3D Space in Motion 5.1, which you can download from our store. You can also access all our Apple training when you become a Video Training Library subscriber.]

Motion 5.x creates amazing motion graphics – but it can also be intimidating to editors that are not familiar with how it works — especially, when it comes to creating effects in 3D. Even for something as complex as 3D, the best effects are composed of simple steps that are combined to create stunning visuals.

In this short video tutorial, host Larry Jordan shows how to add the illusion of depth by rotating images in 3D space, without adding cameras or even switching into 3D space itself. This is a very easy technique to add a dynamic look to info graphics or opening titles.
