Apple Mac Motion

( Duration: 3 Days )

In Apple Mac Motion training course, Participants will create brilliant titles, transitions, effects, and more with Apple Motion, the motion graphics companion to Apple Mac Motion X. In this course, they will learn the fundamentals of motion graphics and develop skills in compositing, animation, and the world of 3D. They will also explore new intelligent templates to quickly and flexibly create high-quality effects, titles, transitions, and generators, and you will learn to create rigs to adjust related parameters with a single control.

By attending Apple Mac Motion workshop, Participants will learn to:

  • Create Smart Motion Templates and publish them to Apple Mac Motion X
  • Create parameter rigs to quickly adjust related parameters with a single control
  • Behavior-based animation
  • Use keyframes to create animation
  • Create content with Generators, shapes, and paint strokes
  • Stabilizing and tracking media
  • Animating cameras and using advanced 3D features

  • Knowledge of OS X and basic computer navigation
  • Basic knowledge of editing and motion graphics terminology is highly recommended
