How to Use Motionworks MovieType
Using Motionworks MovieType is very easy and intuitive. You simply drag and drop the presets and tools onto your objects or scene. You can then tweak the settings and parameters to suit your needs. You can also mix and match different presets and tools to create unique combinations.
For example, if you want to create a sci-fi text animation, you can start by choosing a type preset that matches your style. Then you can add a camera rig preset that gives you some dynamic movement. Next, you can apply a light rig preset that creates some dramatic shadows and highlights. Finally, you can add a material preset that gives your text some metallic or glossy look.
You can also use the tools to further customize your text animation. For instance, you can use the type tools to change the font size, kerning, tracking or alignment of your text. You can use the camera rigs to adjust the focal length, depth of field or motion blur of your camera. You can use the light rigs to change the color, intensity or position of your lights. You can use the material tool to modify the color, reflection or bump of your materials.
You can also use the seamless floor tool to create a realistic floor for your text. You can use the reflective sky tool to add some reflections to your text or environment. You can use the background tool to add some gradients or textures to your background.
