it was all done in motion (the animation that is) and i would appriciate any comments on it.
this was my first serious project with the FCS, had a lot of problems because of that.
the project is made from very large (~300mb) PSD's containing layers which make up the elements + time (for cycles etc.). this makes the motion files very heavy.
i started working in fcp with the live motion files, until fcp stopped loading. then i had to work only in motion and render .mov for fcp. but in the end, we made it.
eventually, i dont think motion is the right app for this kind of projects. with the selection of AE, Shake and Motion, it seems like i must master all of them, or at least AE. motion2 felt some what 'lightweight' or ill adapt for my needs.
Thanks! it actually is all hand made (all 5212 frames). Tal had to draw all the images in Painter X, and certain frames for the loops, and i composed it. it took about 3 months, but i learned much, i think next time it would take half.
