Goals Create shapes with the Bezier and BSpline tools
  Apply and modify generators from the Library
  Add outline and drop-shadow styles to text
  Customize and save a gradient preset
  Preview and apply LiveFonts
  Create particles from text


Manipulating objects and images with filters, behaviors, and particles can give your projects a professional, high-quality look. Now that you understand how to use those tools, it's time to focus on conveying information as well as attracting attention. A motion graphics composite without titles is like a movie without sound. It may be interesting to look at, but it's very difficult to convey the who, what, where, when, why, and how without words. Of course, we're not going to settle for plain old white text, either. Motion's Library includes generators to create background objects from scratch, gradients to add a splash of color, and LiveFonts to bring your text to life.
