Izzy Video #429 – How to Create Custom 3D Objects for Motion

Well, you might have noticed that Apple released updates for Motion (and Final Cut Pro and Compressor) a couple days ago.

I was particularly excited about our ability to use 3D objects in Motion now, so I’ve been playing with that *a lot* since the update.

I like that Motion comes with a collection of 3D objects in the Library, and I like that we can download 3D objects from the web and use them.

But of course the next thing I wanted to try was making a custom 3D object and importing it into Motion.

Well, after testing dozens of workflows, I found one that works consistently, and I made this video showing the workflow that I settled on.

I hope the information is useful!
