One on One Training in Apple’s Motion – Creating a Generator

Recently I had the opportunity to show Charlie from LightLeakLove.com how to set up an FCPX generator for his Light Leaks products. In this video, we go through the basics on how to rig different options, publish parameters and set up a Generator.

Please excuse the city noise as Charlie was traveling at the time of this recording.

We used ScreenHero to do the screen shared session while I was in Florida and Charlie was in Brazil. Screen hero is great since it allows us both to control a screen at the same time with each mouse cursor labeled with the user’s name.

Thank you Charlie, for letting me share this video session with the world.

Please let me know what you think or if you have any requests for future sessions. Thank you and have an amazing day!
