Quantizing in Motion

On this episode of MacBreak Studio, I show Steve Martin of Ripple Training some fun ways to think about using the Quantize parameter behavior.

Hi Mark,

Great video.

Did you post the Motion file anywhere with the full clock?

I'm hoping you can help me. I thoroughly enjoy Mac Break Studio and have one of Mark's courses on Motion. I'd like to try more, but when I try most motion projects, my computer works so hard and the "real time" playback is so far from the finished product that sometimes it is worthless.

The final blow was when I was going to purchase one of the Toolboxes from Ripple training the other day and noticed that the recommended requirements seem greater than my present computer.

I've decided to upgrade and don't know what system would be better for me.

I have an iMac 21.5-inch, Late 2009
Processor 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 16 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256 MB
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)

Can you recommend a system for FCPX and Motion? Is there an iMac that will be up to the task? You both seem to be working with a MacBook Pro. Is that better? I don't need portability and pretty much just edit my personal fishing videos and like to create stuff with Motion.

Any information you can give me would be appreciated. I'm sure this kind of information would be appreciated by the many folks that follow you.

Dan, Motion will work great on any new iMac or MacBook Pro. The key is to first get the best graphics card and second get as much RAM as you can.
