Hi guys, this is emeek77 and this is just a quick update. Somebody emailed me the other day. He wanted to know how to do more specific advanced tutorials in motion. I want to try and get to some of that. But, I want to show a little 30-second project that I am working on that is a lesson that I am going out through right now for motion three. All the elements in this would probably take about four hours of tutorial to explain everything how it was done from taking the mats and making the mats and animating the cameras. And we render this project up for you. And what I am going to do is after it renders, I am going to play it through and that you look at it. It has got some cheesy effects in it and it is really short. But then, I am go over here and show you what involved in this project so you can understand why I try to keep it simple here on Youtube. I want to try to maybe include some advanced tutorials and motion on my website www.finalcutstudio.com. But here on Youtube, it is just too hard to get into this really complicated tough effects tutorials.
Even though I would loved to be able to show you guys how we do some of these stuff, it is just really not practical here on Youtube. As you can see, I am already done rendering here. And I want to point out if you look right up here, I am using over 5 GB of RAM right now working in motion and final cut in color. As you can see, I actually have a final cut in color closed. I only got motion open at the moment and you can see I am using over 5 GB. They recommend 4 GB for a final cut studio. But I am telling you guys, when you really get into and start really pushing your machine, you will max out your 4 GB using motion. I can see right here, I am already over 5 GB and I just rendered out a complete 300 frame project and it is just 300 frames and I was able to render all in to RAM. But, if I did not have 5 GB of RAM, I would not have been able to render this whole 300 frame scene. I would not be able to render all of it. I would have only got about 200 frames if I had about 4 GB of RAM. So the last hundred frames or so probably would not got rendered and I just have to deal with it. But luckily, the more RAM you got, the more stuff you can render in. If it takes 5 GB to render 300 frames of this project, it would probably take 10 GB to render 600 frames so you see where I am going with this. RAM is really important when it comes to motion. So now, let me play this project for you.
I guess I could turn the volume down a little bit.
And that is that. You have seen how quick it was, you have seen how fast it was. There is just a few iPod type effects and camera movements as you can see as we go through. Nothing special. Kind of cheesy. Does some cool effects and making that like dancing. We have to create a mat and mask it, key frame it and all that good stuff. But, there is not much going on, I mean, it is just what – 15 seconds spot, you know. But anyway, let us just go over here to the project, layers tag and let me show you. We have got 1, 2, 3, 4 cameras, animated cameras and when I started to pulling open this tag, you can see this is just the first dance tab for the guy who has turn his head. We have our movie, we have our mats. And see, just going down and open up some more layers. You can see this is the second layer, dance layer. It goes on and down there are all kinds of elements, down, down, down. Now we get to the third layer. Let us open our third layer and you can see what consist of our third layer. All these image masks and levels and meters and get down to our title and see the title and then we got the start the burst particles and stuff. So as you can see this is a huge, huge, huge project and it is just 15 to ten seconds. So this is why I really can not get in to more advanced tutorials because as you can see there is too much to get in to for Youtube. So if you really want it guys I can make a few and put them in my website but this is the main reason I try to keep this simple. So I hope this explains things and will see you next time.
