Not sure what you call it but it seems like lots of folks are using the procedure these days. Is there a template or something to use rather than moving each individual graphic?

Also looking for a poor man's shine for logos. Found one on a tutorial but didn't bookmark it.

Thanks.

After another cup of coffee and cigarette I may have resolved my issue. See, I'm just using 3d without a camera. So if I used one is it just a matter of flying the camera through all those images? I'll try it and see. Will the flying of the previous images have to be redone with the addition of the camera?

Yes, exactly. You position all the various objects in 3D space, and then animate the camera rather than the objects (although you can of course animate the objects as well as the camera).

Animating a 3D camera can take a bit of getting used to, although Motion's camera framing behaviours do help a lot. I can highly recommend the tutorial package Mastering Motion's Camera by our very own Mark Spencer.

There are many ways to do a "logo shine" here is one. Duplicate you logo. Add a levels filter to the logo and drag one of the top triangles of that filter all the way over so it makes the logo 100% white. Then add a mask to the white logo that is at a slant. Increase the feather so it is nice and soft. Then drag the mask over to one end of the logo and add keyframes. Then move it over to the other side of the logo and then you have an animated shine. Drop the opacity of the all white logo so it is not too intense. Hope this helps and best of luck.

Thanks again. What I did was to combine all the graphics into a group. Then animated the group past the camera which worked well.
