Quick Overview

Building on our introduction to Motion in "Master Motion," in this session we look at one of the really exciting new power features in Motion (starting with Motion 3) -- the ability to move in 3D space. And we discover that one of the really terrifying new features in Motion is the ability to get truly, totally, hopelessly lost in 3D space. This webinar is designed to introduce you to the first, while preventing the second.



Manufacturer Part Number: LJ-21

This session is for people who have never worked in 3D before. This will take you step-by-step into a brand new world.

Best of all, no special design skills are required to be successful with this lesson.

Audience Level:
