About Motion and Motion Graphics

Motion graphics are a type of visual effects work most commonly associated with title sequences and show openers, bumpers and interstitials, and interface design such as DVD menus. Motion graphics are also frequently used in technical settings for simulations of moving systems such as traffic patterns or scientific models.

Sophisticated motion graphics artists often combine traditional layout and design techniques with tools borrowed from special effects work such as keying, masking, compositing, and particle systems to create dynamic moving designs.
