5 Software for Creating Motion Graphics

If you have attended several music events such as Synchronize Fest, Soundrenaline, or We The Fest, perhaps you have been exposed to Isha Hening's motion graphic work. Motion graphics can be said to be a form of animation, which combines graphic design with audio. Usually, motion graphics are widely used for advertising media, or as a complement to appearances at music events.

Motion Graphics 1

The motion graphics creation cycle involves several production processes - from drawing sketches to combining three-dimensional models in complex dynamic scenes. There are many elements needed in motion graphics , scripts, audio and even design and animation itself. To create a motion graphic work , supporting software or applications are needed. Here are 5 recommended software for creating motion graphics. 

Motion Graphics 2

1. Adobe After Effects

Adobe After Effects is software for creating digital visual effects and motion graphics , developed by Adobe Systems. Usually, this software is used in the post-production process for making films, video games, and television production. However, Adobe After Effects can also be used to create animations. Unfortunately, Adobe After Effects is not suitable for creating 3D model animations.

2. Cinema 4D

Slightly different from Adobe After Effects, Cinema 4D is a 3D modeling software , animation, motion graphics and rendering application developed by MAXON Computer in Germany. Cinema 4D has features for animating, lighting, texturing, rendering, as well as other general features of 3D modeling applications . There are four types of Cinema 4D according to individual needs, namely Cinema 4D 'Prime', Cinema 4D Broadcast, Cinema 4D Visualize, and Cinema 4D studio.

3. Maya

One other motion graphics software is Maya. Maya is software for creating animation and modeling that is often used in Hollywood films. Actually, Maya is 3D graphic design software that can be operated on Windows, Mac, and Linux. If you look at it at a glance, Maya's user interface really looks like it's for professional motion graphic designers and animators. However, Maya has very high 3D rendering and animation capabilities.

4. Apple Motion

Motion is a software application produced by Apple Inc. This application can also be used to create and edit motion graphics , titling for video production and film production, and 2D and 3D compositing for visual effects. This software is connected to Final Cut Pro X, so Motion can be used to create Final Cut Pro effects, generators, transitions and video titles. This application is only available to users of Apple products.

5. Blender

Blender is one of the most well-known and widely used motion graphics software choices, especially for developing 3D models. In fact, NASA has used this software to create various kinds of public models . Blender can be obtained for free because it is open-source . This software supports all 3D concepts as a whole starting from modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, video editing and 2D animation pipeline.
