Slowing down animations in a template project
on Jul 14, 2011 at 5:26:49 pm

Hi Creative Cow Friends,

I'm new to Apple Motion (newest version). I decided to use a template project to add to a FCP project I'm working on. I've figured out how to go in and edit the "Text Goes Here" fields and figured out the drop zones. However, I'm getting stuck when it comes to the animations that are included in the template. I choose the template that has arrows shooting all over the place and I want to slow the arrows down. I can't figure out for the life of me how to do this.

Any help and direction would be wonderful.

Signed,
Frustrated

Sorry I don't have the link - but there's a MacBreak Studio podcast that addresses this in Motion 4 and will probably help. These podcasts are a great resource.

Otherwise, select the particular "arrow" and look in the inspector window to see what parameters you can adjust. You may get a speed or duration field you can experiment with. Templates are sometimes quite tricky to adjust as there are so many elements interacting.
