How to manually select the Match Move source?
on Jul 10, 2009 at 3:37:49 pm

Heya,

I'm doing what I thought would be a very simple operation. I'm trying to match move a text to background video. I've done this with importing the text from photoshop, no problem.

But now I'm trying to match move using the text tool in Motion as the top layer, and the background video as the source. When i select the Match Move behavior for the text, it doesn't select the background layer as the source, and the source window in the HUD says 'none'. How can I select the source for the Match Move manually?

Cheers!

The source layer always defaults to the layer/group below the object with the Match Move behavior applied. To fix change it just move the image you want as your source into the source well from the Project pane or timeline. Hope this helps.
