Hi all- a friend recommended this forum yesterday to me.

I'm an independent musician, interested in filming/editing/effecting/etc some of my own music videos. Mainly due to budget, TBH. I'd rather spend time making music than working on videos, but I can't afford to hire the real professionals i need.

I'm proficient enough in FCPX (ie i can edit together a bunch of clips and get something that looks decent), and I own motion although i haven't actually used it.

So first question, could someone point me towards a good basic toturial for motion? I honestly don't really know how to use it or what it's capabilities are.

second question is realted to creating animation effects like in this video:

I don't want to recreate this or anything, but I'm interested in this kind of thing. Is this possible in FCPX or motion? Or would someone use After Effects for this kind of thing?

Thanks all! Sounds like most people here are maybe real filmmakers, so if these kinds of questions are too basic for this forum, I apologize!

Thank you!!
