[David Mathis] "Curious to know why Motion has not been developed further. This program has a great potential but other than change in the color scheme of the interface with a slightly different location of tools, there has been a few things that could add to the value of the software, just not implemented as of yet."

I think Ron Brinkman's thoughts vis-a-vis Apple and Shake are relevant here:

Particularly this idea:

"Apple isn’t about a few people in Hollywood having done something cool on a Mac (and then maybe allowing Apple to talk about it). No, Apple is about thousands and thousands of people having done something cool on their own Mac and then wanting to tell everyone about it themselves."


Why would Apple develop Motion all that much further? It already does what thousands and thousands of people need to do something cool on their own Macs.

Why spend more effort the extra effort to develop for the needs of only a few?

(By the way, this is why you should be concerned about the disruption of developers of high-end software by mass-market vendors.)


[David Mathis] "It would be nice to have expressions for the power user base."

Behaviors are deceptively powerful, especially when combined. Is there something specific you're looking to do that you feel cannot be done? I'll volunteer Simon to help you out!
