What is Mt. Mograph Motion 3.24?




Mt. Mograph Motion 3.24 is a plug-in for After Effects that was created by Matt Jylkka, a professional motion designer and educator who runs the popular YouTube channel Mt. Mograph.


Motion 3.24 is an update of the previous version, Motion 3, which was released in August 2019. The update adds some new features and improvements, such as:



  • A new tool called Warp, which allows you to warp and distort layers with mesh deformations.



  • A new option to apply textures and gradients to layers with the Texture tool.



  • A new option to draw paths along layers or masks with the Trace tool.



  • A new option to convert raster images to vector shapes with the Vector tool.



  • A new option to flip layers horizontally or vertically with the Flip tool.



  • A new option to link layers with expressions or keyframes with the Parent tool.



  • A new option to pin layers to other layers with advanced options with the PinPlus tool.



  • A new option to make layers look at a target point with the Stare tool.



  • A new option to break text into individual characters or words with the Text-Break tool.
