Motion v.s. Shake
on Mar 2, 2006 at 9:24:57 am

I've heard Shake is the preimere compositing program for films, but I haven't heard much about Motion in this regard, or even what it's main function and use is.

Is Motion much of a film type compositing program, or, from my experience, is it more of a program for designing DVD Main menu's?

What are the Strength's of Motion? And what are the practical applications of Motion?

Thanks for any advice,

Will Keir

There is no comparison between Motion and Shake. Motion is primarily a motion graphics programs to create show opens, titles and killer particles.

Shake is a heavy duty video / film compositing tool.

The two apps compliment each other, but do not replace each other, similar to how Motion compliments After Effects very nicely.

Motion can be used for film if you have the right hardware. It has float color and is capable of 4K resolution with high-end hardware, but Shake is preferable for film-res images.

I can see using motion for snappy title sequences, credit crawls, maybe jazzing up trailers. That's the kind of thing that it seems to really be designed for. As a compositor, it's lacking a lot of the features that more powerful tools like Shake or Combustion have.
