Apple Motion Tutorial Oscillating a shape

Apple Motion has an oscillating behavior that can bring life to a painted object.

This is a great method for creating an animation without having to manually add keyframes. The oscillation behavior can be applied to any parameter within an object.  In this example, I've chosen to oscillate the Y parameter for the brush angle.  Check out the rest of this Apple Motion Oscillation Tutorial.
  1. Start by clicking on the paint brush tool at the top of the menu bar.
