Have you ever selected a clip in Motion, then looked at the source media controls in the Inspector? Yeah, me neither. But there’s some cool stuff there. Take a look.

To show this pane:

  • Click Media in the Project pane.
  • Select the clip you want to review.
  • Open Inspector > Media (see screen shot).

This pane allows you to change:

  • Alpha (transparency)
  • Color space
  • Pixel aspect ratio
  • Field order (interlacing)
  • Frame rate
  • And more…


Here’s an Apple Support page with more details.
