Apple Motion: Nitro Effect with Motion

Chapter: Titling

Topic: Titling Animation

Here is a quick tutorial on implementing using the ‘Nitro’ LiveFont to make a text object explode onto the screen one character at a time. With the introduction of Final Cut Studio 3.0, Apple no longer includes the LiveType application as part of the Final Cut Studio bundle. I’m guessing this is because many of the features in LiveType can now be accomplished using Apple Motion 4.0. Since LiveType is no longer part of the Final Cut Studio bundle, I thought I’d share a quick exercise that I would normally teach in LiveType. For you LiveType fans, don’t worry, upgrading to Final Cut Studio 3.0 won’t erase your old LiveType application.
