More Product Info


This best-selling guide to Motion 4 is appropriate for beginning to intermediate level courses that focus on creating motion graphics for film, TV, video, or DVDs.
Students will create eight sophisticated projects including a 3D show promo, a network-style title sequence, a DVD motion menu, and an actual temp effect used in Overture Film’s Traitor. Each chapter represents a complete lesson, with a commercial-quality project to work through. It starts with the fundamentals of motion graphics and quickly moves into compositing, animation, motion graphics design, visual effects design, and the world of 3D. Lesson goals and time estimates help students plan their time, and chapter review questions summarize what they’ve learned and prepare them for the Apple Certified Pro Exam. The companion DVD contains all the lesson and media files needed to complete the step-by-step, real-world projects in the book.

 **Please note: There is an Apple Pro Training Series Product Guide posted to the Document Library that you can print and share with your professors.
