Learn how to create some really cool motion graphics with Laughingbird Software. In this video, I'm going to show you how to create MOTION BACKGROUNDS using The Graphics Creator.

Create your own motion graphics with The Graphics Creator by Laughingbird Software (for both Mac and Windows).

In this Tutorial Tuesday video, you'll see how to use the 'integrated' PEXELS video clips to create really awesome motion backgrounds.

You'll also see the new CINEMAGRAPH package from Bryan Mullennix of CrackerClips. Cinemagraphs are like moving pictures (think Harry Potter portraits) and they're perfect for background images.

I also show you a free tool called "Handbrake" that will help you convert your video into an MP4 that looks amazing! Great for uploading your creations to Facebook or Instagram! You can download Handbrake free here:

Here are the Handbrake settings I'm using in this video:

Try using these same settings and adjust from there only if you need to!

• Format: MP4
• Align A/V Start

--- In the DIMENSIONS tab ---
• leave everything as default

--- In the FILTERS tab ---
• leave everything as default

--- In the VIDEO tab ---
• Video Encoder: MPEG-4
• Framerate (FPS) 30
• Check "Constant Framerate
• Quality (Constant Quality) 1
