User Interface Controls

Motion has thousands of different parameters that allow virtually unlimited creativity and flexibility. However with so many different settings to adjust, it might seem daunting to master the whole interface. Fortunately, there are only a small number of user interface controls to modify those myriad parameters. This chapter describes each of those controls in specific detail.

Many parameters are actually compound parameters, where making an adjustment changes more than one setting. Such parameters can be identified by a disclosure triangle next to the setting name. Clicking the disclosure triangle exposes a more thorough set of controls, allowing you to set individual aspects of the parameter’s value with greater specificity.
