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

In Part 2 of a tutorial with its origins in a recent thread in Creative COW's Apple Motion forum, longtime VFX artist, editor, software developer, and business owner Simon Ubsdell plays with some variations on the theme of animating the dials of a slot machine. In particular, he says, "I want that really nice slow-down effect that you have with some slot machines, where you agonizingly discover that you’ve got the wrong value, and that you’ve lost still more money."
