How To Create Video Travel Maps With Apple Motion

Instead of using iMovie travel maps, you can create an animated travel map using any background map you have and trace a detailed route onto it. The video will show the route being drawn onto the map. You can even add a graphic or icon to follow the path.

    Can't this same thing be largely accomplished in Keynote using the move along a path feature (which you aptly covered in a MacMost video a number of years ago)?

    Art: Wait for it. The next in this short series is for Keynote.

    Gary, in Motion Preferences (or Settings) under the Project tab, you can change the annoying (if it is) behavior of newly imported objects entering at the playhead position by choosing "create layers: at start of project"

    I'd love to see more tips on using Apple Motion to create effects you can import to iMovie.

    Gary, Great video. I used Motion once before for an effect for a FinalCut Video. It seemed so complicated (I followed a youtube video step by step). The explanation you presented was great. Look forward to more ways/ideas and techniques for Motion. Thanks. Ken
