Reversing glows?
on Jan 22, 2006 at 11:03:04 pm

Hi guys i'm using motion 1.0 for the first time, like the program pretty easy but i'm having one problem. I'm using the heavy glow behavior under text sequence and it looks great on the left side of the screen. I tried using it on the right side of the screen for some text but i want the glow to come in right to left. How do i do this?? I tried changing under behaviors sequence control direction to right to left but it just ends up reversing the type on and everything, i just want the glow and text to open from right to left. I hope I explained that clearly and would like to thank anyone who takes a look at this post.

In Motion 2.01:

- Select the Heavy Glow behavior

- Open the behavior in the Inspector

- Open Sequence Control

- Change Traversal to "Custom"

- At start of behavior set a Location keyframe at 0%

- At end of behavior set a Location keyframe at -100%

This should reverse the direction of the glow from right to left. I haven't used Motion 1 for a long time and recommend the upgrader to 2.01 ASAP if you are planning on using Motion with any regularity.

You need to change the sequence controls to custom and keyframe from -100% to 0.
