Commerical Templates for Motion 2?
on Mar 30, 2006 at 5:55:34 pm


I know vfx has 3 DVD collections of Motion 2 templates you can edit (like the templates Apple ships with Motion 2), but they're HD. I know I can edit them to work, but does anyone know of another company selling SD templates for Motion?

this will sound lame... but it would be nice if when in a pinch for time, or creatively stumped... I could just go to some ready-made templates I could use for :30 or :15 spots. Or, sometimes I figure out how to do certain kinds of animations, etc. from the templates... or, I can just peruse them for ideas. The VFX templates are nice, as are the Apple ones... but it would be nice to have a larger selection and preferably in SD (since the VFX ones are in HD only)

Most of the VFX templates are little more than Jumpbacks. I have yet to find any commercially available templates that compare to the ones that come with Motion2. The only thing wrong with those is that there are so few of them. You very quickly burn through the repertoire and you are soon left having to come up with something new.

Which is OK but when you are up against commercial timescales (ie it usually has to be done by yesterday) it's not always possible to sit down and create.

I would be more than happy to pay good money for good templates that do my work for me. And that is to come up with imaginative ways of making still or moving images transition onto the screen, dance around the screen and then transition off.

Give me 1-2 minutes where all I have to do is drop my boring corporate footage into the placeholders, a reasonable spattering of garnish for good measure et voila - you got me sold.

You take my money, I take the glory and everybody's happy!
