Your graphics in Motion.

Designed with editors in mind, Motion features a streamlined interface that lets you easily create titles, transitions and effects for Final Cut Pro.

HDR

Design motion graphics in stunning High Dynamic Range with Motion. View HDR images on any recent Mac that displays an extended range of brightness. Or heighten your experience with the new Pro Display XDR, which connects with a single Thunderbolt cable to reveal the stunning beauty of your HDR effects.

Advanced colour grading

Adjust hue, saturation and brightness with the same advanced colour wheels available in Final Cut Pro. Use colour curves and hue/saturation curves in combination with the eye dropper to target and alter specific colour ranges. And precise keyframe controls let you adjust colour corrections over time.

Optimised for the all-new 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 optimised for the Afterburner card to accelerate ProRes projects, so you can design motion graphics and watch your results instantly in groundbreaking 8K resolution.

360° video.
A new spin on your projects.

Motion features a robust 360 VR motion graphics workflow with real-time output to 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.

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 behaviours 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.

Comic filter

Give any photo or video a comic book aesthetic. Choose from three styles to instantly create colour, greyscale or monochrome artwork. Then refine the effect by adjusting ink edges, fill and smoothness.

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 colours 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.
