Motion 4 Lesson 7 Review

  1. 1. How does Motion let you know that recording is enabled?
    The Record button turns red and glows, and all keyframeable value fields in the Inspector turn red.
  2. 2. What parameters of a layer or group will be keyframed when recording is turned on?
    All keyframeable parameters will be keyframed by default. You can change the recording options by double-clicking the Record button and selecting the checkbox to record keyframes on animated parameters only.
  3. 3. How many keyframes do you need to create animation?
    At least two.
  4. 4. The position of a video is keyframed at 1:00 and 5:00, but it does not move. Why?
    Because the keyframes have the same value.
  5. 5. You want to set a keyframe at 3:15 for the scale of three layers that are each in different groups. How can you set it for all of them at once?
    Command-click each of the layers to select them; then click the Animation menu in the Properties tab of the Inspector for Scale and select Add Keyframe, or Option-click the menu.
  6. 6. When you set a keyframe with recording enabled at a frame that is not at the beginning of a layer, what does Motion do automatically?
    Motion automatically sets a keyframe at the beginning of a layer if recording is enabled when you change the value of a parameter at any other point in time.
  7. 7. When setting keyframes manually, which do you do first--set the keyframe or change the value--and why?
    Always set the keyframe first and then change the value when setting keyframes manually; otherwise, the value will change for the entire duration of the layer, not just at the keyframe.
  8. 8. What parameters can be keyframed?
    Any parameter of any layer, group, or effect that has an Animation menu in the Inspector.
