I have been a seasoned Adobe After Effects and Sony Vegas user for many years now (well for at least 3 years) and ever since I got a Mac, I've been wanting to try out some Apple alternatives for software, and I've got to say, I've been pleasantly surprised. The new final cut seems fine, although a wee bit slow on my 2010 Macbook air ultimate especially, but Motion is excellent. Although it doesn't have the cool rotorscoping tools of after effects cs5, it's actually faster, just as powerful, and with millions of templates, easier to use too. For titles especially, it is a breeze. And most of all at literally 5% of the price of AFter effects, unless you are a professional with many AF add-ons, I have to recommend motion. here's my first project (it was a school project + tropfest entry) using motion for the titles and final cut x for everything else http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFGasUnypX8&feature=channel_video_title please also comment, give advice and share your stories of using Motion!
