The new Matrix film is almost upon us, so here's an Apple Motion tutorial on how to make that famous text effect.
When the first Matrix film was released, it triggered off a lot of lookalike cascading character animations. With the new film Matrix Resurrections being released in December, you can be sure the text technique will become popular again!
In this tutorial, the flowing text is built up from emitters and a file is discovered that makes the process even easier. It also shows how behaviours can control individual text characters in Motion for Final Cut Pro.
However, if you don't want to build your own, you can download the free Final Cut Pro Matrix plugin here.
Also worth noting that the the scene of the man in the street in the trailer below looks very similar to scanning the environment when using AR spaces in Clips on an iPhone!
And maybe more 'Bullet-time' effects in 2022 perhaps?
