I have a template Animation with built in, FX that I would like to work on FCP X o motion?
Is there a way to accomplish this. I understand that Automatic Duck was absolved by Adobe... how can I do this?
To my knowledge, there's no way to bring AE effects or animation pre-sets into FCPX or Motion. You can render out your clips from AE with the effects or animation built-in and bring them into FCPX (that's what I do all day), but I'm not sure there's another route. You might try playing around with going into Premiere via an embedded AE project, but as far as I know, Premiere doesn't access AE effects or behaviors unless you open the AE project.
I cloud but it is a restaurant menu that i am using for different clients. It is essentially a template animation that i wish to keep using in fcp x /motion instead of Ae..
i don’t subscribe to adobe cs and i really don”y want to pay them.
But it is a simple animation..
No instagram member, so I couldn‘t see that. Was that a solution?
Because I know AAE longer and better than Motion, I use it. I‘d think you could easily rebuild AAE animation templates in Motion, but then it‘s the same one-way and cul-de-sac. Unfortunately, with Catalina Adobe has unceremoniously shut down their Pro-Import, so there doesn‘t seem to be a direct way to open pre-composed compounds from FCP in AAE, unless you buy APP for this roundtrip workaround purpose alone (proposed as a „what‘s. new“ feature in AAE CC 2020).
So it isn‘t getting better at all. If it weren‘t for Mocha, I‘d cancel my AAE subscription now. Not into motion graphics, but if I were, I used Motion, and I rigged and published all templates for FCP, because everything else made little sense.
I had a look at the template and this is not difficult to do in Motion.
If you want to get rid of AE I think you need to invest the time to learn Motion, at least so much to recreate what you need.
The super big pay-off of investing some time now (best time ever?) is that you can build it as a template Motion that you can modify in FCP by publishing the parts you want to modify, like text or bg images or colour of shape elements. If you're too daunted to learn on your own why not get a turorial by eg. Ripple Training on rigging in motion. You will save so much time down the track..
