We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.

Motion

A professional-grade animation and special-effects creation tool. While very rich, this application is complex and only recommended for users who are willing to invest significant time learning the software in order to create their own intricate text effects or special effects.

Pros:

  • Contains a couple hundred pre-fab special effects for use in video, including smoke, fire and other computer-generated effects.
  • Easy to learn text and titling tools for powerful and unique text effects in your videos.
  • Improved real-time, simplified design environment.
  • Comprehensive layering and masking tools for compositing in 2D or 3D.
  • Integrates seamlessly with Final Cut Studio programs, such as Final Cut Pro.

Cons:

  • Though this version is easier to use than earlier versions, it will require 2-3 hours of instruction to learn the basics.

Help

  • Apple Support - getting started, user's manual, troubleshooting.
