From Mad Men to Game of Thrones, the most iconic television shows of today also have the most iconic opening credits. Luckily, the tools to create them are not out of reach for aspiring editors. Created by Apple, Motion is a surprisingly affordable yet powerful motion-graphics tool that makes it easy to create cinematic 2D and 3D titles, fluid transitions, and naturalistic effects in real time. In this hands-on and in-depth course, students learn to create sophisticated title sequences with Motion for their own video projects. Using the tool’s core features, students also explore compositing, animation, motion-graphics design, chroma keying, particle effects, motion tracking, and visual-effects design.
