Chunkalized learning.

In our innovative, patent pending “chunkalized” step-by-step learning environment, each section is presented as a series of clear, easy-to-understand “learning chunks”. You must verify that you comprehend and have completed each step and action in the process before your virtual instructor moves on.

Hands-on training.

To master any software, you must do, not just watch. PowerStart is the best kind of hands-on training there is- guided by expert instructors, you build the tutorial projects yourself. There are always opportunities to take time and experiment so you are actually comprehending each tool and each action youre executing.

“In-context” learning.

Unlike other products that cover tools and concepts in a jumbled, unrelated order, each and every concept and action presented on this DVD is in the context of completing a real world task. So, when working on your own projects, youll immediately be able to put what youve learned to work.


Learn at your own pace. Quickly move through sections you understand, make your virtual instructor go over difficult concepts as many times as you need without worrying about other students or the time limits of a class. You have total control.

High Quality.

We use proprietary production methods to deliver crisp, sharp, high quality visuals to your computer screen, unlike fuzzy, headache-causing DVD video discs and VHS tapes. The movies on Motion PowerStart are huge, so you get the whole picture.

No one learns alone.

No one should have to learn alone. Our “Ask a Question” button will allow you to post your question on our Motion forum for thousands of others, including our own industry-leading instructors, to answer. You can ask questions, offer advice, and share tips in a collaborative, organized online environment on the very topic that you are currently learning.

Created by the top experts.

The Motion PowerStart course was created by Michael Wohl and, the world leader in desktop movie training. We have more experience in Apple digital media software training than anyone else on Earth!
