Tip #663: Motion Cinema Workspace

Evan Fitzer

Control + Option + U displays the Cinema Layout. Control + U displays Classic.

Cinema view displays a larger Layers on the left and larger Inspector on the right.

First a quick note to let you know how much I enjoy these Inside Tips. So nice to have them in my inbox each morning. My tip isn’t really a tip, per se. Just pointing out that Motion has two different UI layouts available. The Classic Layout, and Cinema Layout.

  • Select: Window > Window Layout > Classic/Cinema (shortcut: Control + Option + U).

I now use the Cinema layout almost exclusively. I find it more balanced and pleasing to the eye. As well, I think it’s more intuitive and easier to navigate. In the end though, it really comes down to personal preference.

Larry adds: OOH! I like this a lot! This puts Layers on the left and the Inspector on the right. I had forgotten this!
