Comments and Ratings for Motion

Terrific software at a terrific price (5.3.1)
01/02/2017 12:30:58 5/5 By RickTorn
I have been creating videos professionally for over 30 years and I am astounded that Apple are marketing such a powerful piece of software at this price. I have been a long time user of After Effects which costs more than FCPX and Motion put together. Yet this software provides me with about 90 % of all my previous AE professional needs. But even better when combined with FCPX it allows me to create FXs far faster than I used to do with AE as there is so much prepared content that can be adapted so that I am finishing effects when I would still be sketching out my basic structure within AE. For me personally, I found the change from Premiere and After Effects hard, they were my go to edit systems that I could produce work at high speed without thinking about the interface. I found that FCPX and Motion were quite steep learning curves because I kept assuming everything worked as it did in other NLEs. I suspect a new editor will fins it easier to learn than an experienced editor with pre-conceived ideas about how a traditional NLE system works. But once I was up to speed FCPX and Motion were a revelation. So smooth, fast and powerful compared to the systems I have been using previously. I think both programmes run exceptionally well with the latest Mac OSX, multi-layers with effects and colour correction are handled so easily. Even better a one off payment, no monthly rentals and if FCPX and Motion upgrades are like other Apple software, no major price hikes for some time to come.

Buggy after update! (5.3)
19/01/2017 07:37:02 3/5 By Speedydev88
Disapointed with the update. It seems to have gained some bugs that have not been fixed! One of the most anyoing bugs for me is that the animations I create look fine in the app but when I render it out it dosent animate opacity on keyframes on text outlines or drop shadows. This used to work fine before! Come on Apple, simple keyframe animation effects should work. Please test all the features before you release updates in the future. Back to AE for the time being.

Disappointed (5.3)
02/01/2017 06:56:00 2/5 By Shadow-007
Simply put, disappointed. Motion 5 keeps crashig on my Mac. Worse than that, any unsaved work is lost forever. I migrated to Motion 5 from Adobe Animate but it looks like I’ll have to go back again. Deeply dissapointed that I spent a lot of time going through the Lynda.com training sessions in order to use Motion 5 but, because of the program’s instability, I will stop using Motion 5 unless Apple can issue a very quick fix for this crashing problem. Was also thinking of migrating to Final Cut Pro from Adobe Premier Pro but will wait now until I read more reviews on FCP and Motion 5 which suggest that the instability problems have been fixed. I would urge anyone who is thinking of buy Motion 5 to wait untl this program is safe to use.

Keeps crashing (5.3)
10/12/2016 10:59:00 1/5 By Solipsia
I have the latest Mac, latest MacOS, latest version of this software, but it crashes every 10 minutes making it near unsuable.

TERIBLE DONT UPGRADE - APPLE HAVE SCREWED US (5.3)
26/11/2016 11:35:00 1/5 By lightlyfrozen.com
How have apple release such unstable operating system and at the same time made their proffesional apps unusable! It is a disgrace, might as well be using windows. Motion crashes constantaly at least twice every 40mins. I’ve given up on sending the crash reports if I wasnt in the middle of two animations that I started after upgrading. I would have trashed this stupid app and down graded back to the previous operating system which doesnt lock up on the top of the range latest 5k iMac.

Crashes constantly (5.3)
25/11/2016 13:35:00 1/5 By Odylih
This is a real worry for me as I often use Motion and now it randomly crashes without displaying a crash screen. Please fix.

Incredible and crazy for such a low price. (5.3)
25/11/2016 10:20:00 5/5 By Chris wickland
I don’t know why no one has left a review. This piece of software is a very very powerful tool to be used in conjunction with other video editors such as final cut pro and imovie. This humble priced piece of software will do visual effects up to a standard and quality you would get from software that would normally cost you thousands. All I can say is this. If you want to do some cool and impressive video efx from simple to complex with 3d animation etc etc. Then this is the package for you. It is the best £40 I ever spent. Do not for one moment think that this package is not upto the other packages worth £thousands. This really is quite incredible for the price.

Crashes constantly (5.2.3)
24/10/2016 23:06:00 1/5 By Chrissie_c
Will crash at the slightest provocation, even on pathetically simple projects. Yes, I’ve done all the reinstallting and deleting caches & preferences. Crash Crash crash crash crash

Performance (5.2.3)
15/08/2016 16:47:00 2/5 By Qwerty Uiop Asdfg
Really great program, but constant crashes make it pretty much unusable, which is a massive shame. I used to make little animated loops for VJing on it a long time ago, it can output some nice stuff but takes 10x the amount of time it should as you have to wait for it to freeze and unfreeze, I recently opened it again to simply sync a few songs with a 10 minute 720p video, and still constant freezes even with the most basic project setup. P.S. I have a top of the range macbook pro that is capable of playing and projecting 8+ layers of HD video at once, with multiple dynamic effects on each, so it’s not my computers fault ;)

Utterly unusable as a professional application (5.2.3)
08/08/2016 16:35:00 2/5 By Cetighorn
I use Motion to make credit sequences for films, and had good results. BUT this latest version is utterly incapable of WYSIWYG rendering and has made a mess of my latest credit sequence. It’s not a complex sequence: I have used two different weights of the same font, a little bit of opacity keyframing and that’s about as complex as it gets. When it creates the finished ProRes422 file, Motion switches between font weights at random, sometimes in the middle of words! I have exported the project eight times without changing any settings myself, and every single export is randomly different. I have checked the forums relating to this project and no-one has found a satisfactory workaround, and no fix has been issued. This issue has cost me about six hours in trying to find fixes and workarounds for a process that should take two minutes. I have now written off Motion as unfit for professional use and will switch to the industry standard application for this kind of work in future.
