Apple's Motion is one of the best compositing applications on the market today, the problem is it is easily the most misunderstood as well.

In Lesson 1, Kevin P McAuliffe is going to walk you though launching the application, what you need to understand in the project window, and importing your footage to work with. Most of what you are going to learn in Chapter 1 can be applied to Motion 4 as well.
