An Awesome Guide to Motion 5 Motion is a robust motion graphics tool and complements Final Cut Pro X. This guide is ideal for editors and students new to Motion who are looking for a quick visual way to learn. This guide breaks down the complex Motion interface by guiding you through the creation of several projects.

The first project will use a prebuilt template to ease you in. You will be challenged to explore with trial and error. The last project will start from scratch but end with over fifty layers that include content, Filters, Behaviors, cameras and more. Use this guide to start using Motion today and give your video projects the competitive edge.


  • Awesome ... Try hopeless.

    I discover in my first task that the example template he is using doesn't exist in my version of motion 5 so I'm improvising from the beginning. Not a great start. Soon things are starting to not make any sense, but no help from Jared. He plows on happily referring to ideas using language he hasn't introduced and seems to have no intention of introducing. I'd like a description of what a 'group' is; as well as why certain things are grouped together that I didn't group myself. Then, as I try to look for answers myself, more groups seem to be created when I'm not looking. They're now everywhere. I delete them and move on. Now he gives an example of a picture 'crunching', a problem that I 'need to sort out' - only the picture I'm using (he doesn't provide the picture he's using) hasn't 'crunched' at all so I miss out on the solution. I move on to task 2 having abandoned task 1. Only it isn't a task, it's a massive overview of the entire software that is completely confusing to read because the previous task was so unhelpful. We move onto another task with none of the files available for use, producing an example that is nothing like an example most normal people would want to do - advertising cars available in a car lot for heaven's sake - and by the time I reach page 40 I have lost the will to live. Clearly Jared has never tried to explain anything to a newcomer before. I should point out that it is completely impossible to work out who this book is intended for. The content, chapter by chapter seems to be for intermediate/advanced users, yet at the end of each chapter is a series of questions to answer which he calls a 'review'. The first question is - 'where do you get Motion 5 from? 1. A shop 2. The apple store ... Etc, etc.
