The Writing’s on the Wall

Shapes in Motion are the building blocks of engaging motion graphics. They can be used to create paint strokes or masks, and by the end of the tutorial you’ll be using them to create animated write-on titles and other cool visual effects.

Bring Characters to Life

Shapes are the primitives by which any graphic can be created. In this tutorial you’ll use shapes to add visual interest for backgrounds, and also use them to create the facial features of an animated character.

Animate Along a Path

Shapes are so versatile they can even be used as a path for your animations. You’ll learn how to use the Motion Path behavior then apply a custom shape for your visual elements to travel along.

Move Your Graphics to the Beat

Not only can you animate your graphics to music, when they’re built from a shape you have even more control. We’ll show you how to use an Audio Parameter Behavior and a shape to precisely control how your objects move to the beat.

    One of my go to courses. Learning about Text and Masks has really helped me understanding Motion 5. Explanations are clear. Purchasing vs subscription fee keeps the course accessible without further cost. Training is excellent. I refer back to it because it is so helpful. It gets me going in the right direction again when I get stuck. Thanks!

    This is such a fantastic tutorial! Lots of great information and even a packet of goodies with shapes and strokes to add to your own Motion. And for this bargain price, it’s really a gift. Loved it!

    This tutorial is great! Mark Spencer is explaining things so clearly that he really inspires me to learn more and more. The ebook provided with the tutorial is also very handy and useful to check on things you need to remember. Can’t wait to implement the new things I learned in new projects.
