All times are Los Angeles PST.


Last week, in Webinar 306, we explored the edges of 3D space by using lights for our projects. This week, we go deeper into 3D with a look at cameras and sets. Just as we can capture scenes with cameras in real-life, we can use cameras in Motion to capture motion graphics as well.

NOTE: In fact, everything we see in the Viewer is through a camera, it’s just that Apple hides that fact until we are ready.

Join Larry Jordan as he explores adding depth and movement to our projects using cameras and sets. As part of this process, he also shows how to use drop zones in Motion to prep a project for final customization in Final Cut Pro.

This session will show how to:

  • Add a camera to 3D text
  • Build and light a simple set
  • Add and modify camera moves
  • Use multiple cameras with multiple sets
  • Use drop zones for greater flexibility in Final Cut

Cameras provide another way to add movement to our projects, while sets make it easier to add depth. This will be a fascinating session you won’t want to miss.


This is an advanced-level session. Some knowledge of Motion will be helpful. All you need to watch this presentation is a web browser.

Registration is FREE! Everyone is welcome!!
