10 More Great Apple Motion Templates

Macs have kept their reputation as the machines of choice for those in creative fields – and hey, why let them take the title away? After all, there’s a ton of creative apps on the Mac that can help you make just about anything you want, and Apple itself has quite the portfolio of pro creative apps that are exclusive to the Mac. Take, for instance, Motion.

The sidekick to Final Cut Pro, Apple Motion is a great and relatively affordable way to make cinematic effects and animations from your Mac. It’s a lot to master, though, if you’re starting out, but that’s where templates come in. Our parent company Envato’s VideoHive marketplace has a ton of great Apple Motion templates that can make it simple to produce high-quality animations in Motion on your Mac. We’ve looked at some great Motion templates here before, and now’s the time for another look at what VideoHive has to offer.

Flipping Cards

Here’s a snazzy way to show off some pictures and text, in an animation that’s reminiscent of a Keynote transition with a lot more 3D. You could build an extended version as a picture gallery, but it’d likely be better as a quick intro or overview to show what’s coming up in your video.
