Give Your Titles Depth

Creating 3D Titles in Motion is an immersive tutorial that walks you through what can be created using Motion’s incredible 3D Text options. Starting with a simple title, you’ll begin building your 3D title layer by layer to achieve just the look you’re after.

Build with Raw Materials

Creating the perfect title can be time consuming, and you don’t want to repeat all of that work if you’re going to use it as a thematic element. This tutorial will show you how to build custom materials from scratch, and save them as a preset that can be applied to any 3D title you’re working on.

Apply Custom Textures

Even though Motion has a plenty of materials, finishes, and effects for creating custom 3D titles, sometimes you need something more organic. By the end of this tutorial you’ll understand how to apply custom textures recorded from the world around you, then apply them to your text.

Add 3D Titles to Your Scenes

One of the greatest aspects of 3D Titles is the ability to incorporate them into a scene. By using more organic looking titles, you can quickly convey information without interrupting your audience’s immersion in the story. This tutorial provides some fantastic tips for matching light, shadow, and camera movement, to pull off this effect seamlessly.

    I have used numerous methods to keep up to speed with Motion and FCP X, Ripple Training is by far the best resource available. Being able to download the videos and watch them on a plane or a long commute is a great advantage. I recommend this site every time I am asked about a resource for learning.

    I honestly don’t think I would have ever learned Motion to the extent I have without Mark’s great ability to teach and instill encouragement to dive right in and learn. I’ve done several of the Ripple tutorials, and if you plan on doing professional titles using Motion, then this one is a must. You cover a lot of ground, and in the end not only can you create great looking, animated 3D title sequences, but you also gain a better understanding of how 3D works in Motion. As a bonus, you experience Mark’s professional workflows and learn about the third party apps he uses to achieve his goals. Yet another fantastic learning experience from a great team of teachers. Thanks guys, and keep ’em coming.

    Creating a unique look to my productions is valuable for my brand. Though I’m competent with FCPX, Motion has always been a bit out of reach for me. I tried Mark’s “Titles” training title replicating his steps substituting words with my project names along the way. Talk about the proverbial “OMG… this really does work” results. First, Mark Spencer is clear and concise with just the right amount of explanation along the way to keep the learning curve powerful and moving forward efficiently. After each lesson, I had a (new) useful title in my personal collection in FCP’s Titles tab. When Mark (showed) how to turn logos into type, then turn those typefaces into 3D title sets with effects my world opened even wider. One client job and a plugin, tutorial, stock item is paid for. Well, this TITLES course by Mark is a must have and I have enjoyed a huge ROI. My videos have become more classy. That feels very good. Thanks Ripple.

    This has to be about the best training I’ve used thus far on Motion 5’s 3D features.
