You’ll also see how to import images, clips and Photoshop layers to incorporate externally created content to enhance your Motion projects. From there Michael guides you through his strategic use of Layers and Clip Order to manage and organize the various assets aggregated within a project.

Then you’re off to creating Shapes and Fills. You’ll see how to make Bézier and B-Spline shapes using Motion's built-in toolkit with their cool possibilities for fills and outlines.

Next, Michael picks up his virtual palette and creates an informative section of videos on Lines and Paint Strokes. Learn all about the extremely versatile Airbrush and Image Brushes and see how to employ the Complex Image brushes and Advanced Stroke Control techniques.

The last section in this tutorial explores Masks and how to create them freehand using the Bézier and B-Spline tools.
