My free Apple Motion webinar: Exploring animation behaviors

It took me years before I got my mind around Apple Motion. I spent a long time trying to learn how to do complex multi-layer keyframed motion graphics like I used to make in Adobe After Effects. I clicked with Motion once I had a more straightforward task: make a simple plugin for Final Cut Pro X.

After making many Final Cut plugins and motion graphics sequences with Motion, I’ve come to know it well. One of the two sessions I taught at the 2015 FCPX Creative Summit was about using Motion’s behaviors for animation.

I’ll be teaching a webinar version of that session on Tuesday called “Exploring Apple Motion Behaviors for Easy Animation“:

The real power behind Apple Motion is behaviors. Behaviors use the power of complex calculations and real-time rendering to produce results in minutes that would take hours to create and modify using keyframes or complex math. Behaviors can control almost everything in Motion — including graphics, text, particles and cameras. Alex will show behaviors controlling graphics and particles and show how much fun you can have by playing with behaviors in Motion.
