Obsolete Text Behaviors

In Motion 4, Apple made significant changes to the text behaviors. The Sequence Text behavior was revised, and the Crawl Left, Crawl Right, Scroll Down, and Scroll Up text animation behaviors were replaced with a new, single behavior called Scroll Text. When projects created in earlier versions of Motion that contain the older Sequence Text behavior or a Crawl Left, Crawl Right, Scroll Down, or Scroll Up behavior (from the Text Animation category) are opened in Motion 4, the older versions of the behaviors appear.

Because the Text Sequence presets are based on the Sequence Text behavior, the presets were also revised. When projects created in earlier versions of Motion that contain the old versions of the Text Sequence preset behaviors are opened in Motion 4, the older preset behaviors also appear.

This appendix details the settings and options for these behaviors, and the workflow associated with the old Sequence Text behavior.
