Automatic Duck Xsend Motion

The missing piece between Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5: Xsend Motion from Automatic Duck.

Xsend Motion converts your FCPX timeline into a Motion project in just seconds, translating Transforms like Position and Scale, opacity and blending modes, titles and many third party effects as well.

A new Motion project is created pointing to the same media files used by Final Cut Pro, no new media is created. You can easily adjust your footage in Motion, everything is live and not baked-in.

More indepth demo showing an entire project translating, how to send a section of a timeline via a compound clip, also how to send Motion work back to Final Cut Pro X.

You can send an entire project from FCPX to Motion, or you can export the contents of a compound clip to XML and translate that into Motion. Your Motion work can be exported back to FCPX as a QuickTime movie or published as a Generator, Xsend Motion fits into your workflow. Any time you have a clip or set of clips in FCPX that want to use in Motion, Xsend Motion is the tool you need to send those projects across.

Xsend Motion integrates with the Final Cut Pro X Share menu as well as with XML exports from FCPX 10.2.1 and later, including Final Cut Pro X 10.3.

Automatic Duck Media Copy 4.0

Automatic Duck Media Copy is a very helpful utility that reads Avid AAF exports or XML files from Final Cut Pro 7 or Final Cut Pro X and copies the media files referenced by the project to a location you specify. This makes it very easy to identify and copy the media you need for a specific AAF or XML File. You can archive the media, or perhaps send to another computer.
