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 Behaviours 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 colour, or add multiple strokes using a gradient outline.

Advanced Colour Correction

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

Optimised 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 optimised 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 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.

360° video.
A new spin on your projects.

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