Today’s session isn’t for everyone, but it will show how to create some fascinating effects!

Motion has, hidden inside it, a very capable particle system which allows us to move a cloud of just about any graphic objects. In this week’s session, we will combine particles with Motion’s built-in simulators to direct how a particle cloud moves through space in new ways.

Simulators allow objects to orbit around, be repelled by, or attracted to other objects. This allows us to add life and movement to an otherwise generic floating cloud of particles. Today’s webinar looks at a topic we haven’t covered before: the intersection of particles and simulators in Motion 5.

Join host, Larry Jordan, as he shows how to:

  • Work with an existing particle systems
  • Create a custom particle system
  • Use a Motion simulator
  • Combine simulators with particles to create unusual cloud movement

This session will expand your thinking of Motion and provide opportunities for new visual effects useful in commercials, infographics and education. Plus, these tools are just plain fun to play with.


This is an advanced-level session. While no knowledge of Motion is required, some knowledge of how Motion works will be helpful. All you need to watch this session is a web browser.
