One of the frustrations of publishing Master Templates from Motion 4 to FCP7 was the fact that dropzones and text entry/tracking were the only controls that transferred between the apps. With Motion 5 and FCPX that's all changed, welcome to rig building.

What with the Easter Holidays happening after the big SuperMeet announcement, there hasn't been much FCP news out there. This gives us an ideal opportunity to feature another training company publishing FCS3 YouTube tutorials.

Try out this quick and easy bezier freeze frame effect in Motion. If everybody could cut out figures as rapidly as geniusdv what a happy NLE world it would be!

We thought Conduit was dead, how wrong we were. This $199 plugin from DV Garage is on its second version and now works inside FCP, Motion, After Effects and Photoshop. In this video Kevin Hansen shows Mark Spencer how to pull and then refine a key using the plugin. If you have ever had trouble with chromakeying or greenscreen then this might be just what you need.
