    Happy New Year!!! So I bought this map image as a vector image. I imported it into Motion as a PDF, but my client wants me to add the same red color to Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I’m at a loss on how to do this. Can someone here give me step by step instructions? I need to create this as a template for FCPX.

    Thanks so much!!

    You’d have to do it in a vector editing program. In Motion there is no way to edit inside of a vector.

    If you’re on Windows you can use Inkscape. It’s a free, open-source vector graphics editor that has saved me many times with my limited graphics and design skills.
