I am trying to learn Apple's Motion 4, which is pretty complex. I'm looking for some free online tutorials to learn the ins and outs of Motion. Where can I start?

I found rippletraining to be very helpful. Larry Jordan is also a good starting point.

Alex4D puts out some really cool, easy to learn from, Motion templates. Sight-Creations is another great resource to find Motion templates.

You're also going to find lots of good starting material on YouTube.

If you didn't know, you can also save YouTube search queries and subscribe to them in Google Reader. I find a lot of good stuff there too.

Lastly, I want to mention Vimeo. The quality of videos you're going to find there is really astonishing. Check out the group Motion tips & tricks
