Additional Behaviors

Audio, Camera, Motion Tracking, Particles, Replicator, Shape, and Text behaviors are
designed specifically to be applied to their respective objects: Audio files, cameras, particle
emitters or cells, replicators or replicator cells, shapes, and text.

Using Behaviors

Even a relatively simple Motion project can contain numerous parameters. Keeping track
of them can be difficult. Often, you might want to modify a variety of parameters
simultaneously. Finding and changing them individually would interrupt your workflow
and slow you down.

Rigging allows you to map multiple parameters to a single control. For example, you can
create a single slider that changes the size, color, and tracking of a text object, while
simultaneously adjusting the Throw Velocity of a background graphic. Similarly, you can
create a checkbox that controls shadows and reflections for all objects in the project.

This chapter explains how to create and modify rigs to organize and simplify your workflow.
