Do you have access to After Effects?
Shatter is fabulous for this kind of thing.

We just don't have the depth of experience around here in Motion so trying to search the tutorials for Motion effects won't get you much help.

I hope others will chime in over the next few days with some helpful suggestions. You might also try the Motion forum at although most of the wonks post at both locations.

Please let us know if you figure it out and how you satisfied yoru client's demands.


This is my standard sigfile so do not take it personally: "For crying out loud, read the freakin' manual."
