New

Object tracking made easier.

Motion uses machine learning to easily track faces and objects in your scene. Use the Match Move behavior to mirror their movement and add emitters, replicators, text, and shapes to produce realistic results.
New

Add cinematic flair. After the fact.

Create amazing depth-of-field effects with footage shot in Cinematic mode on iPhone 13. Use the Cinematic tool to choose your focus points by clicking in the canvas. Adjust the depth-of-field effect instantly using a slider, or use behaviors and keyframes to animate it over time.

Your graphics in Motion.

Designed with editors in mind, the streamlined interface and incredible performance of Motion let you create and play back titles, transitions, and effects in real time. Take the guesswork out by seeing your designs without the need to render.

3D Objects

Quickly import USDZ 3D models, then easily and precisely adjust their position, rotation, and scale using Behaviors or the Keyframe Editor. For even more stunning results, add cameras to a scene or combine objects with emitters, replicators, cameras, and more.

New

Neon Filter

Add an eye-catching glow to any image, shape, or text element with the Neon Filter. Enhance the effect even more by animating its intensity with keyframes. Or combine the filter with tracking behaviors to make moving objects really shine.

Optimized for Apple silicon

Create visual effects in the blink of an eye with Motion on the new MacBook Pro. M1 Pro and M1 Max accelerate ProRes performance and free up the processor for intensive tasks like rendering particle systems and complex behaviors. And using the Apple Neural Engine, Motion can track objects and faces, even in ultra high-resolution 8K video, at incredible speeds.

Powerful design tools.

Motion features a real-time design engine that lets you see your work immediately, along with a deep set of tools and content for creating and animating complex motion graphics.

A 2D and 3D view of your titles.

Easily create beautiful 2D and 3D titles that you can animate with drag-and-drop behaviors and intuitive text animation tools.

Stunning effects.

Just drag and drop to assemble impressive animations, with a choice of more than 200 filters and effects built into Motion. Then fine-tune your work with precise controls.

360° video.
A new spin on your projects.

Motion features a robust 360 VR motion graphics workflow with real-time visualization for a VR headset, so you can design 360° titles, generators, and filters that perfectly map to your VR scene. Instantly apply those effects to your Final Cut Pro timeline and export a video optimized for YouTube, Facebook, and other popular video destinations.

3D

Instantly transition from 2D to 3D space by adding a camera or cameras to any 2D project while preserving your 2D groups. Animate and adjust the cameras to create smooth, realistic 3D movement.

Shadows

Set up point lights and spot lights to cast shadows across objects. Fine-tune shadow appearance by specifying colors and edge types. When you set your elements in motion, shadows animate dynamically with the movement of objects and lights.

Reflections

Turn any shape, video plane, or paint stroke into a reflective surface. Add blur to soften reflections and use the Falloff feature to fade reflections as the object moves away from the light.

FxPlug

FxPlug is a powerful Apple‑designed plug‑in architecture for filters and effects. Choose from more than 130 built-in FxPlug filters and generators. And explore the thriving ecosystem of third‑party FxPlug effects that work in Motion and Final Cut Pro with custom interfaces and incredible real‑time performance — with new FxPlug4 plug-ins enabled for both Intel-based Mac computers and the power of Apple silicon.
