making cogs
on Apr 28, 2010 at 10:47:13 am

Hi,

I am trying to create cogs that I can turn in Apple Motion 4. I don't know the programme that well, only how to play around with the templates so I've been searching online and can only find tutorials on how to do it in After Effects.

Can anybody give me any quick pointers on how to do this?

Many thanks in anticiaption

Jess

Go to the Library tab and then to content, Gadgets. Check out Belt Drive.

Are you having a hard time locating the tutorial Mark posted a link to or the pre-built cogs in the
library?

Sorry, the pre-built cogs, which sound just what I need!

To find them in Motion go to the File Browser. Click on the Library tab or hit the Command and 2 keys to open up the Library. Look for a folder called "Content". Click on the Content folder. Click on the Gadgets folder. Locate the "Belt Drive" asset and you have some cogs. Hope this helps and best of luck.

Hey, Jessica. If you think THAT was great, you ought to buy Stephen's training DVD, "Moving with Motion". It's getting great reviews!

No need to thank me, Stephen. Just send commissions. ;-)

Funny you should say that Mark, I saw it on Stephen's biog earlier and I am definately thinking of getting my order in. You should still have words with Stephen though, I reckon the going rate is about 15%!!!

Clicking the link to mark P.'s tutorial from within his post didn't work for some reason; can you post another link, Mark?
