  • Been a while and I’m starting a new Motion project. Questions…

    OK, so I have a 3 minute DVD presentation project (hooray!) and I’ve decided to do it in Motion. I’m going to have questions over the next few days, I’m sure, and I already have a basic one:

    I have a photo and I apply the shrink/grow behavior to it. I have it shrinking from big to small, right? I want it to shrink down to a specific size and then stop. The behavior just keeps going. If I trim the behavior in the timeline to stop at the point I want the animation to stop, it snaps back to the default size.

    How do you easily set these kinds of behaviors to stop at a specific point?

    I remember the end offset function in the Inspector, but that doesn’t seem like an easy way to do what I want. You have to tell it how many frames from the end of the clip you want the animation to stop with no visual clues?

    Am I missing something obvious?
