  1. Hi Deyson,

    Great tutorials and freebis thank you very much for sharing that. One question instead of the text/font Twitter logo can a normal png (with duplicates to get a more 3D look) be used as well to create that ? Would love to make something similar with a color soccer club logo.

    Regards and greetings from Frankfurt

    1. Hello, Tobias! Thank you so much for the kind words! You can use anything you want instead of the font or text. What I would do is create a new group and add an image or a drop zone. With a drop zone, you could add any image you want from inside of FCPX. This would make a great idea for a new tutorial! πŸ™‚

  2. Deyson, When I try to import the twiiter logo into Motion it dose not come in as the logo. Either nothing happens or just the web address comes into the project.
    and for that matter how do you get any logo’s into the text box?

    1. Hello Tom, You should not need to import a logo. First, you will need to install the FontAwesome Font and then use the Cheat Sheet from their website to grab the twitter code. You will then need to paste that code in the text area for the twitter logo to appear. You can see more details on how to use the Font Awesome font at 10:00 into part 1 of the tutorial video. If you still have questions, please share a screenshot and I can guide you better from where you are. Thank you for your valuable time and have an amazing day! πŸ™‚

  3. I have the Ripple Training tutorials on Motion and they are terrific but I think watching yours should be a prerequisite. I’m not sure how you did it but now I understand everything Mark Spencer was trying to teach me. I’m also very happy you left in your mistakes. They answered some of my questions about, is this a bug or do I need a new video card.

    1. Wow. Thank you for your kind words. Mark is a huge inspiration to me, so putting my name in the same sentence with his is a huge honor. πŸ™‚
      I like the idea of mistakes, Nick Campbell, which does amazing C4D and AE tutorials, leaves in all his mistakes and it makes me think “Hey, they make mistakes too” . πŸ™‚

      I am very happy you like and I plan to create more. Thank you and have an amazing day! πŸ™‚
