Use the Motion Inspector to add 3D rotation or position changes.

There are two ways to add perspective to any element in Motion:

  • The Inspector
  • The 3D Transform tool

To use the Inspector:

  • Select an element in the Layers panel.
  • On the left side of the Interface, click Inspector > Properties.
  • Twirl down Position to move the selected element horizontally (X), vertically (Y), or to or from the viewer/camera (Z).
  • Twirl down Rotation to rotate the selected element horizontally (X), vertically (Y), or to or from the viewer/camera (Z).

Personally, I find myself using Y rotation the most of all these settings.
