motion 3.. is it that good?
on May 25, 2007 at 1:43:26 pm

Hello all,

I am sure my question has been asked before and I have searched the archive, but couldn't find anything similar so I'm afraid I must ask it..

I am on the verge of purchasing an upgrade to FCS2, and a powerful incentive to do that is the 3D capability of motion 3. Does it truly deliver? Also, does it do true 3D?

I'm asking this because I will need to, at some point, create an 3D animation in which the camera becomes a rolling pool ball and ends up in the pocket, looking upward.. I am going to do this with a variety of stills and video (not wireframe animation from scratch).

Inputs and comments are appreciated.

Motion 3 doesn't do 3D in the way you're describing. Think of it as 2 and a half D. Super Paper Mario 3D. 2D objects (except for some particles and maybe a few more things) in 3D space.

There're also no cast shadows, and the camera doesn't simulate depth of field. (Thanks MacBreak)

Sounds like you want a proper 3D modeling and animation app.
