Your graphics in Motion.

Designed with editors in mind, Motion’s streamlined interface and incredible performance lets 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.

New

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

Stroke Filter

Easily outline the edges of any video, image, or text element with the Stroke Filter. Create a custom look by choosing from a solid or gradient color, or add multiple strokes using a gradient outline.

Advanced Color Correction

Fine-tune hue, saturation, and brightness with the same advanced color wheels available in Final Cut Pro. Target and adjust specific color ranges by using the eye dropper with color, hue, and saturation curves. Then, view your pristine graphics in stunning HDR on Mac or Pro Display XDR.

Optimized for Mac Pro

Design and create faster than ever before with Motion on the new Mac Pro. Motion takes advantage of all the GPUs in your Mac and uses up to 28 CPU cores in processor-intensive ProRes workflows. Motion is also optimized for the Afterburner card to accelerate ProRes projects, so you can design motion graphics and watch your results instantly in groundbreaking 8K resolution.

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 or share to YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo.

Tiny Planet. A twist on perspective.

Create mind-bending effects with 360° video in non-360° projects. Adjust tilt, pan, roll, and field of view for spherical looks and animations. Then apply keyframes for perspective-inverting effects that change over time.

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.
