Grouping Layers and or Objects in Motion

Grouping is an effective organizational tool, that keeps the various elements of a project easily navigable. That is as long as you remember what you grouped with what. For example you very well may group the background, graphics and titles separately within the master layer. Having only what you need open makes the interface much less distracting. When trying to group layers or objects in Motion it is better to use the grouping function than adding a layer and trying to drag the layers into the layer individually. It would be very easy to alter the order of the layers that way.

Grouping in Motion is similar to nesting in Final Cut Pro. Simply highlight the layer or objects you wish to group, select the Object menu, and Group function. The key command for Grouping is shift+apple+g. All you have left to do is name the new layer

Ungrouping is done the same way, but by selecting Ungroup off the Object menu or option+apple+g.
