The third dimension in Apple’s Motion – and beyond

apple motion 3D tutorial

In this tutorial from Motion guru Fox Mahoney, he takes a deep look into the advanced 3D features using fonts in the application. This is pushing Motion’s 3D capabilities to the limit.

In this installment, you will be creating an animation on a 3D surface. This project will demonstrate a different way to manipulate the Front and Back Edge “sizes” of a 3D Text object, using Multiple materials, create animated “textures”, touch on specular images for the custom “finish”,  using a custom bump map, and animating the environment to achieve an interesting special lighting effect.
