You can now download a
30-day trial version
of Motion from Apple’s Web site. The software, which integrates seamlessly with Final Cut Pro HD and DVD Studio Pro 3, enables you to add effects to your digital video and “explore new creative territory using self-propelled behavior animation [and] character-by-character title animation.” Motion, which you can purchase by itself for US$299 or bundled with Final Cut Pro HD and DVD Studio Pro 3 for $1,299, requires Mac OS X v10.3.5, an 867MHz G4 or G5 processor, 512MB RAM (2GB recommended), 10GB hard drive space, a 4X AGP slot and a high-end ATI or nVidia video card. Apple offers a Motion Compatibility Checker that you can download and run on your computer if you’re unsure if it meets those minimum specs.
