Installation & Setup

Overview

Installing Motion is simple. The script was developed with you in mind. There are no extra files or folders — all you need is the Motion.jsxbin

Mac

Close Adobe After Effects if open. Navigate to your Finder > Applications folder > Adobe After Effects > Scripts > Script UI Panels > Open the downloaded Mt. Mograph - Motion folder, select the Motion.jsxbin and place it in the Script UI Panels folder. Restart Adobe After Effects > On the Menu Bar select Window > And scroll down to Motion.jsxbin and select it. A dockable panel will open into your Workspace and the Motion script is ready to go.

 

Windows

Close Adobe After Effects if open. Navigate to your Program Files > Adobe > Adobe After Effects > Support Files > Scripts > Script UI Panels > open the downloaded Mt. Mograph - Motion folder and select the Motion.jsxbin and place it in the Script UI Panels folder. Restart Adobe After Effects > On the Menu Bar select Window > And scroll down to the Motion.jsxbin and select it. A dockable panel will open into your Workspace and the Motion script is ready to go.

Important

If you cannot locate the Script UI Panels folder. Create a new folder in the listed OS hierarchy. Name the folder accurately with no extra spaces or letters. Restart After Effects and your copy of Motion should work. If problems persist, we’ll work to resolve the issue.

Developer Notes

Thank You

Thank you for purchasing the Motion script. I’ve worked hard to create a high-quality product that will save you time and effort. Please honor my copyright and do not give away the script or share the Update link with others for free.

I encourage you to use my product in all possible circumstances and can guarantee I will work to offer continued support and optimizations for you.

Providing free educational resources and content is important to me. I believe knowledge is the best part of life and shouldn’t be limited by a persons income. I’ve given up free-time and freelance projects that support me to provide the motion graphics community with free tutorials and tools over the last year.

Motion is not only a great tool, but also a way to support future Mt. Mograph content and tutorials. Please help keep Mt. Mograph going by using Motion. If you find it helpful and a reliable tool, spread the word. I am forever grateful for the continued support and your purchase of this product.
