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 the first chapter of our "Fast Track" with Apple's Motion 5, we're going to look at creating a lower third animation, that will give you all the basics you need to move onto more complex projects. 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.
