Hi Andy, firstly thanks for another great tutorial for Motion 5.

One thing though, after building the effect and testing it in FCPX I then went back into Motion and tried to adjust the values for the Fade In / Fade out but unfortunately Motion kept crashing. I first noticed this when I clicked back on the small BLUE markers for the Min Max settings in the behaviours Tab for the Widgets. I have sent some crash reports to Apple. But wondered if you had experienced this problem, if not have you tried to go back and re-adjust the setting for the Fade Widgets ?

Regards

Fred

Simon Ubsdell applies his his VFX and motion graphics expertise to cleverly working around those limitations by exploiting the best of Motion's behaviors, filters, lights, cameras, blend modes, refractions, and more -- along with everything you'll need to customize the effect to your liking, and to deepen your own Motion skills.
