Chapter 1. Motion Basics

1. Motion Basics

Motion 4 allows you to create simple text graphics or complex animations for your visual projects (documentaries, features, news, digital signage, and so on). With an easy-to-learn interface and rich tool set, Motion is your in-house special effects solution.

The incredible compositing power of Motion is organized into two main windows: the Canvas and Utility windows. Each of these windows is composed of multiple panes in which your project creation and modification is performed. Motion also has a built-in dashboard window, the Heads-Up Display (HUD), that provides quick access to often modified parameters.
