Interesting thought's from Alex Gollner. "Adobe After Effects has become the Avid Media Composer of motion graphics generation. It is the default choice of those who make money from 2D animation. It i

Is the Adobe Creative Cloud debate dead?
by Neil Sadwelkar 2 years ago
I checked the 'Adobe Creative Cloud debate' forum here at the Cow. And the last post there was Oct 2017. In the entire 2017, there were 3 posts at that forum. As many as this forum sees in an hour on
Re: Is the Adobe Creative Cloud debate dead?
by Jason Watson 2 years ago
I think the debate is largely dead. It's been almost five years since Adobe went CC only, and judging by how well it's worked out for Adobe, they aren't going back.

I'm just curious about this. It's been a while since we've talked about it here, and I know that business has changed for a lot of you over the years, so just laying it out there. Anybody selling foot

In my experience with friends and colleagues who have tried their hand at stock footage, it's not been a very pleasant nor profitable experience, both in terms of jumping through the hoops of any part

High Sierra and DVDs

For those who still need to burn DVDs for clients - what are everyone's plans for making DVDs after High Sierra hits As I understand, no 32-bit apps will run under High Sierra, so that counts out DVD

If I remember correctly, all the CS6 apps were 64-bit, so Encore at least should probably still work.
I want to start with a B&W still image and then convert to colour as video starts

As the subject says - I like the look of the sketch lower 3rd template in Apple Motion 4. It has a background like sketch paper with a hand drawn box and text that appears as it runs. There is a built

by Jason Watson 6 years ago
Put a Hue Saturation filter on the clip and keyframe the saturation to '0' at the point where you want it to start gaining color. Then move forward in time to where you want it to be full color and ke
Smoother motion in Motion 4
by Nikko Koetsch 6 years ago
Whenever I make movement and motion paths in motion it always seems to come out a little jerky. I create a motion path then I use keyframing to turn the arrow in coherence with the motion path. I trie
Re: Smoother motion in Motion 4
by Jason Watson 6 years ago
Without seeing your project it's hard to know exactly what the problem is, but you should be able to get smooth motion. Here are a couple things to try with what you're doing: Instead of manually alig
Bending an object to follow a motion path in Motion 4

Motion 5 upgrade? Compatibility?

I recently started a new position and have gone back in time. They're running FCS 2, FCP 6 and Motion 3. However, we're making the leap to CS6 for PP and AE. However, I really like Motion and the clos
Re: Motion 5 upgrade? Compatibility?
by Jason Watson 7 years ago
While I think there is a way around this, whenever I have tried a 'send to motion' (from fpc7) it sends it to Motion 5, which doesn't work, at least in my experience. I've always found the round-tripp
Masking question for Motion 4
by Michael West 7 years ago
Good morning: This is for Motion 4. I made a martini shaker. As it moves upward the cap covering the spout will come off and fly away. As the top comes off, I would like it to reveal the spout. How do
Re: Masking question for Motion 4
by Jason Watson 7 years ago
It seems to me that you should be able to have the spout visible (in the layer timeline sense) the entire time, as long as it is under the cap layer. Your layer hierarchy would look something like thi

There are a number of ways one could go about it- two that come to mind immediately: 1. In Motion make multiple copies of your image, equal to the number of pieces you want assembled. Then mask each c

Motion Shadows don't work with reflective stage

I have 3 lights, a text layer, and a reflective stage made of a color solid. Everything works, except the text layer doesn't cast shadows. Shadows are on for all of the lights, the text layer, and the
Re: Motion Shadows don't work with reflective stage
by Jason Watson 7 years ago
I think it's the image mask that is doing it. When I disabled it the text shadows showed up. I don't exactly know why, but I've noticed that image masks and shadows can be wonky sometimes. I found two
Layering of 3D Groups

I have a little conundrum with a Motion project in 3D. I have a color solid as a "floor" for reflections and then a front overlay with a few effects. The overlay and the floor are BOTH in 3D space and
Re: Layering of 3D Groups
by Jason Watson 7 years ago
Sorry, I meant moving the text layer as in moving the group it was in. Since it's being masked by that rectangle, moving just the text layer wouldn't make a difference, beyond losing the mask. (And wo
