Posted on by Larry


[This is an excerpt from a recent on-line video webinar: “3D Space in Motion 5” which you can download from our store. You can also access all our training when you become a member of our Video Training Library.]

A hidden strength of Motion 5 is its ability to manipulate objects, backgrounds, cameras and lights in 3D space. But, working in 3D can be really, REALLY confusing. This online webinar presents a variety of techniques you can use immediately to add 3D depth and movement to your motion graphics; without getting lost.

In this short excerpt, host, Larry Jordan, illustrates how to create the illusion of depth-of-field using a 3D camera in Motion 5, then how to adjust the focus point to create a “rack-focus” effect.
