Designed for video editors, Motion is a powerful motion graphics tool that makes it easy to create cinematic 2D and 3D titles, fluid transitions, and realistic effects in real time.

2D and 3D Titles 
• Import 360° media and design 360° titles, generators, and effects
• Build 3D titles from scratch, design them with easy-to-use templates, or instantly convert any existing 2D title to 3D
• Easily create beautiful titles that you can animate using more than 100 drag-and-drop behaviors and intuitive text animation tools
• Customize 3D titles to create endless looks with over 90 Apple-designed 3D materials including various metal, wood, and stone surfaces 
• Vector-based characters scale, skew, and rotate with pristine sharpness, while the modern engine in Motion lets you design in real-time

Motion Graphics for Final Cut Pro
• Save any title, effect, transition or generator and access it directly in Final Cut Pro
• Customize Final Cut Pro titles, effects, and transitions by opening them in Motion
• Create Smart Motion Templates with any combination of single parameters and rigs, which let you control a group of parameters with a simple slider, pop-up menu, or checkbox in Final Cut Pro

• Add the Tiny Planet filter when adding 360º video to a non-360° project to create interesting spherical looks
• Harness a thriving ecosystem of third-party FxPlug plug-ins with custom interfaces for tasks like advanced tracking, advanced motion graphics, and more

Effortless 3D
• Transition from 2D to 3D space by adding cameras
• Create 3D scenes within a 360° project for ultra-realistic 360° environments
• Set up realistic shadows that animate dynamically with the movement of cameras and lights
• Track objects or groups of objects with drag-and-drop ease by applying the Camera Framing behavior
• Selectively define focus as an object moves in 3D space
• Turn any shape, video plane, or paint stroke into a reflective surface in 3D space

Breakthrough Speed, Quality, and Output 
• Import wide color images, view them on supported Mac computers, and then export in standard Rec. 709 or wide Rec. 2020 color space 
• Export standard or 360° projects to Apple devices and publish directly to YouTube and Vimeo
• Send to Compressor to access advanced options for custom encoding like HEVC

Ottimo strumento di animaziopne grafica

Semplice, veloce ed economico, uso Motion per animare elementi grafici di qualsiasi tipo: video didattici, infogrfiche animate, titoli, loghi, sottopancia.
Ho avuto modo di confrontarlo in fase di produzione con progetti paralleli su Adobe After Effect, che è senza dubbio un software di livello superiore, ma che proprio per questo si è rivelato essere inutilmente più complesso di Motion nella gestione delle sequenze e più lento nelle fasi di preview ed esportazione.
Numerosi, seppure limitati (se paragonati a quelli per AE), i template in commercio sviluppati per Motion, ma non ho mai avuto difficoltà a trovare qualcosa che si adattasse completamente, o solo in parte, alle produzioni realizzate.

Un ottimo prodotto. Funziona molto bene in combinazione con Final Cut Pro . Non ha forse le stesse caratteristiche di Adobe After Effects ma ha degli ottimi presupposti per candidarsi ad essere un’alternativa . Al momento lo trovo utile e complementare e forse piu immediato e semplice nell’utilizzo , anche meno flessibile. Lo sto usando con soddisfazione in molti dei miei progetti e devo dire che sono felice di averlo acquaistato.
