The images and diagrams are the key to this amazing book. The author really understands how to explain complex topics so become so easy. Also, the price is very reasonable compared to the content it delivers. I really can recommend that book for anybody who wants to get their feet west with this amazing app from Apple. I'm hooked and ready for the Motion 5. This whole "Graphically Enhanced Manual" thing is a bad direction for learning. The author says that he actually purposed to keep your hands off of the application as long as possible. Instead of touching Motion itself with a guided tour and instruction, we spend dozens of pages listening to the author ramble about file extensions!

In this video tutorial, we learn how to use lights and motion keyframes to create a cool flipboard animation. You can spend hundreds of dollars downloading animated flourishes on the internet… or you could just make them for free! There are many ways to create abstract, cloud-like effects in Motion and this tutorial series shows us just one. A time-lapse is a series of pictures taken across a span of time and put together to create a video.

Thankfully, there are built-in tools in Motion that can help you create time-lapse fast. Volumetric lighting is essentially light rays that can be seen in 3D space.

Using Motion you can create volumetric lighting with native effects. This tutorial by Final Cut King is exactly that. Using a series of color keys, you can easily composite your own sky backgrounds into your video. Sometimes the best way to give your motion graphics a custom look is to simply add more layers. The following video tutorial shows us how to create a spinning Sci-Fi powerball with an electric center.

One of the newest features to be integreated into Motion is the ability to create 3D text. Unlike After Effects, users of Motion have the option to create 3D text without any 3rd party plugins or hacks. Want to learn more about Apple Motion?

Particle Collision Tutorial Created By: Simon Ubsdell In this tutorial, Simon Ubsdell shows us how to create an intersecting particle collision effect in Apple Motion.

Walking Dead Effect Created By: Final Cut King Using the built-in motion tracker, you can easily track points within your footage. Departure Board Tutorial Created By: Note: Layers are available in the Motion Source menu if they have source footage items that can contain motion or if they are composition layers. You can precompose a layer to make it available in the Motion Source menu. Current Track The active tracker.

You can modify settings for a tracker at any time by selecting the tracker from this menu. Track Type The tracking mode to use. When tracking position, this mode creates one track point and generates Anchor Point keyframes for the source layer.

When tracking rotation, this mode creates two track points and produces Rotation keyframes for the source layer.

When tracking scale, this mode creates two track points and produces Scale keyframes for the source layer. When tracking position, this mode creates one track point on the tracked layer and sets Position keyframes for the target. When tracking rotation, this mode creates two track points on the tracked layer and sets Rotation keyframes for the target.

When tracking scale, this mode creates two track points and produces Scale keyframes for the target. Parallel Corner Pin tracks skew and rotation, but not perspective; parallel lines remain parallel, and relative distances are preserved. This mode uses three track points in the Layer panel—and calculates the position of the fourth—and sets keyframes for four corner points in a Corner Pin effect property group, which is added to the target.

The four attach points mark the placement of the four corner points. Perspective Corner Pin tracks skew, rotation, and perspective changes in the tracked layer. This mode uses four track points in the Layer panel and sets keyframes for four corner points in a Corner Pin effect property group, which is added to the target. Raw tracks position only. For example, you can copy and paste the keyframes for the Attach Point property to the Position property for a paint stroke; or, you can link effect properties for the Stereo Mixer effect to the x coordinate of the Attach Point property using expressions.

Tracking data is stored on the tracked layer. The Edit Target button and the Apply button are not available with this tracking option. You can add track points to a tracker by choosing New Track Point from the Tracker panel menu.

Motion Target The layer or effect control point that the tracking data is applied to. After Effects adds properties and keyframes to the target to move or stabilize it. Change the target by clicking Edit Target. No target is associated with a tracker if Raw is selected for Track Type.

Analyze buttons Begins the frame-to-frame analysis of the track point in the source footage: Analyze 1 Frame Backward : Analyze the current frame by moving back to the previous frame. Analyze Backward : Analyze from the current-time indicator backward to the beginning of the trimmed layer duration. Analyze Forward : Analyze from the current-time indicator to the end of the trimmed layer duration. Analyze 1 Frame Forward : Analyze the current frame by advancing to the next frame.

Note: While analysis is in progress, the Analyze Backward and Analyze Forward buttons change to a Stop button, with which you can stop analysis when the track drifts or otherwise fails. Reset Restores the feature region, search region, and attach point to their default positions and deletes the tracking data from the currently selected track.

Tracker control settings and keyframes already applied to the target layer remain unchanged. Apply Sends the tracking data in the form of keyframes to the target layer or effect control point.

Motion tracking options These settings apply to a tracker, a group of track points that is generated in one tracking session. You can modify these settings by clicking Options in the Tracker panel. Track Name The name for a tracker. Tracker Plug-in The plug-in used to perform motion tracking for this tracker.

By default, this option displays Built-in, the only tracking plug-in included with After Effects. Channel The components of the image data to use for comparison when searching for a match for the feature region. Select RGB if the tracked feature is a distinct color. Select Luminance if the tracked feature has a different brightness than the surrounding image such as a burning candle carried through a room.

Select Saturation if the tracked feature has a high concentration of color, surrounded by variations of the same color such as a bright red scarf against a brick wall. Process Before Match Temporarily blurs or sharpens an image to improve tracking. Blur reduces noise in the footage. Usually a value of 2 to 3 pixels is enough to produce better tracks in grainy or noisy footage.

Enhance exaggerates or refines the edges of an image and makes them easier to track. Note: After Effects blurs or enhances the layer only for tracking. This blurring does not affect the motion source layer.

Track Fields Temporarily doubles the frame rate of the composition and interpolates each field to a full frame to track motion in both fields of interlaced video.

Subpixel Positioning When selected, keyframes are generated to a precision of a fraction of a pixel. When deselected, the tracker rounds off values to the nearest pixel for generated keyframes. The image data that is searched for within the search region is the image data that was within the feature region in the previous frame, rather than the image data that was in the feature region at the beginning of analysis.

If Confidence Is Below Specifies the action to perform when the Confidence property value is below the percentage value that you specify. Note: To determine an acceptable confidence threshold, track the motion and then examine the Confidence values for the track point in the Timeline panel for problematic frames.

Specify a confidence value that is slightly larger than the largest confidence value for the problematic frames. Select Continue Tracking to ignore the Confidence value. This behavior is the default behavior. Select Stop Tracking to stop the motion tracking. Select Extrapolate Motion to estimate the position of the feature region.

Select Adapt Feature to use the original tracked feature until the confidence level falls below the specified threshold. At that point, After Effects adapts the tracked feature to be the contents of the feature region in the frame preceding the one that has low confidence and continues tracking. This command is available only if you choose to use the older After Effects tracker plug-in.

Note: To show or hide motion paths in the Layer panel, select or deselect the Display Motion Paths option in the panel menu of the Tracker panel. The panel menu is the menu that you access by clicking the icon in the upper-right corner of a panel. You can also use commands in this menu to add a new track point, reveal the current track in the Timeline panel, and toggle whether the feature region magnification is enabled.

Each tracker contains track points, which are property groups that store the tracking data after tracking has been performed. After Effects groups trackers in the Motion Trackers property group for each layer in the Timeline panel. You can rename trackers and track points and modify and animate their property values in the Timeline panel just as you do for other layer properties and property groups.

You must click Apply in the Tracker panel to apply the property changes to the target. Feature Center Position of the center of the feature region.

Apple Motion 2 New Features Manual

Feature Size Width and height of the feature region. Search Offset Position of the center of the search region relative to the center of the feature region. Search Size Width and height of the search region.

Confidence Property through which After Effects reports the amount of certainty regarding the match made for each frame. In general, Confidence is not a property that you modify. Attach Point Position assigned to the target layer or effect control point.

Attach Point Offset Position of the attach point relative to the center of the feature region. You can resize or move these items independently or in groups by dragging using the Selection tool.

Track point components and Selection tool pointer icons A. Resizes region To turn on or off feature region magnification, choose Magnify Feature When Dragging from the Tracker panel menu. To move the feature region, search region, and attach point together, drag inside the track point area avoiding the region edges and the attach point , or press the Up, Down, Left, or Right Arrow key.

Hold Shift while pressing an arrow key to move by an increment 10 times as large. To move only the feature and search regions together, drag the edge of the feature region, or Alt-drag Windows or Option-drag Mac OS with the Selection tool inside the feature or search region.

Motion 5 - How it Works

To move only the search region, drag the edge of the search region. Note: Offset the search region center from the feature region center in the direction in which the tracked feature is traveling. To move only the attach point, drag the attach point. To resize the feature or search region, drag a corner handle. To make all of the sides of the region match the length of the longest side, and to resize the region relative to the original center point of the region, Shift-drag a corner handle.

Note: To restrict the movement of the track point to the x horizontal or y vertical axis during tracking, resize the height or width of the search region to match the height or width of the feature region. For example, you can apply the track to the position of a light bulb and to the effect control point of the Lens Flare effect. In the Tracker panel, choose the tracked layer from the Motion Source menu.

Choose the track that contains the tracking data you want from the Current Track menu. Click Edit Target, and choose the target. In the Tracker panel, click the Apply button. Correct a motion track As an image moves in a shot, the lighting, surrounding objects, and angle of the object can all change, making the once-distinct feature no longer identifiable at the subpixel level.

Also, if the search region is too small, the tracked feature may leave its bounds from one frame to the next. Learning to choose a trackable feature takes time. Even with careful planning and practice, the feature region can drift away from the desired feature. Re-adjusting the feature and search regions, changing the tracking settings, and trying again is a standard part of automatic tracking.

You may need to track the shot in sections, redefining the feature region in places where the feature changes and the region drifts. You may even need to choose a different feature to track, one with movement that closely matches that of the feature to track, and use the attach point offset to place the target.

You can fine-tune the keyframes of the motion path in the Layer panel as you would any other motion path. Modifying the motion path is most useful when you want to manually change the motion tracking data before applying it to a target. In some cases, it may be easier to manually modify the motion path created by the motion tracker than to get a perfect track.

Motion source and its motion path A. Keyframe marker Correct drifting by adjusting the feature and search regions Move the current-time indicator to the last well-tracked frame.

Alt-drag Windows or Option-drag Mac OS the feature and search regions only not the attach point to the correct location. If you are correcting the track for one frame, go to step 4.

If you are correcting the track for several contiguous frames, adjust the feature region and search region if necessary, and click Analyze.

Watch the tracking to make sure that it is accurate. If the tracking is not accurate, then click the button again to stop tracking, adjust the feature region, and begin again.

When you are satisfied with the track, click Apply to apply the keyframes to the target layer or effect control point.

Correct drifting by modifying tracking settings Move the current-time indicator to the last well-tracked frame.

In the Tracker panel, click Options. Change settings in the Motion Tracker dialog box as appropriate. See Motion tracking options. If the tracking is not accurate, then click the button again to stop tracking, adjust the settings, and begin again.

See Tracking and stabilizing motion for more information about using the point tracker for stabilizing motion. For video tutorials, details, and resources about the Warp Stabilizer effect, see this article on the Adobe website. Steve Forde Stabilize with the Warp Stabilizer effect To stabilize motion using the Warp Stabilizer effect, do the following: Select the layer you want to stabilize. After the effect is added to the layer, analysis of the footage begins immediately in the background.

As analysis begins, the first of two banners displays in the Composition panel indicating that analysis is occurring. When analysis is complete, the second banner displays a message that stabilization is occurring. You are free to work with the footage or elsewhere in the project while these steps are occurring.

The Analyze button remains dimmed until some change takes place. Click the button to reanalyze the footage. Note: Analysis does not take into account any masks or effects that are applied directly to the same layer.

Pre-compose and place them in the upstream composition if you want them to be analyzed. Cancel Cancels an analysis in progress. During analysis, status information appears next to the Cancel button. Stabilization Stabilization settings allow for adjusting the stabilization process. Result Controls the intended result for the footage Smooth or No Motion. Smooth motion default : Retains the original camera movement but makes it smoother.

When selected, Smoothness is enabled to control how smooth the camera movement becomes. No Motion: Attempts to remove all camera motion from the shot.
