Chris Northcross created a new topic ' What's new in Motion update?' in the forum. 4 years ago

Just updated FCP X, Motion & Compressor but haven't had a chance yet to take more than a cursory glance. Has anyone kicked the tires to see what's new yet in Motion?

I had the same problem as you Shane. What I wound up doing was updating my apps via the purchases page. When the updates finished, the lone hold out update popped up in the updates window.

Once everything updates, my updates page was completely blank. No applications updated in the last 30 days or anything like that showed up. Just a "no updates available". But my applications updated and installed.

Hope that helps.

Chris Northcross replied to the topic 'What are you hoping for in 10.3?' in the forum. 4 years ago

- A non keyboard way to select a secondary storyline. It is annoying to have to click on the boundaries of a secondary storyline every time I want to edit something into it. I can select a clip within a secondary storyline simply by mousing over and hitting the "c" key. I would like to have a similar ability to interact with secondary storylines

- A way to assign a keyboard shortcut to toggle between proxy/optimized media

- SVG support for FCPX/Motion

You are showing an effect that has been done with Trapcode, a 900 (yes: nine-hundred) dollar plugin for After Effects.

(Just did a spit take)

When did that happen?

Hey, just FYI for those who prefer free open source stuff, there's Natron. Figured I'd throw it out there just for the heck of it.

BWT - If you're looking for documentation for Natron, your best bet is the Nuke user guide.

Just pulled down the BlackMagic Design Fusion Beta for Mac. Just popped my head in for a bit and its a bit different from what I'm used to (Nuke, Shake and Blender's compositor - which is a bit different itself.)

Curious to hear your opinions.

So what are you using now Scrubelicious?

If you're interested in nodal compositors that work with FCP X, you might want to give Conduit a look as well. It's free and you can use it a a stand-alone application or a plugin that works within Motion 5 and FCP X.

A course for serious work you will need the studio version but for $995 what more do you need?

When you say 'serious work' do you mean 4k output?

Right now I'm using Blender when I need a nodal compositor and Motion and FCP X for my more routine day-to-day routines. I'm interested to see what Fusion on OS X is going to look like. I'm really curious to see if it's XML workflow will work as well with Resolve as FCP X does (or, for that matter, if it will work well with FCP X.)

Chris Northcross replied to the topic 'Hide text without masks' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hmmm...I thought about it but can't come up with a way around masking the text. I'm curious to see if anyone comes up with a mask free solution.

MsJustine,

I think the image above is a mock-up created by true story for illustrative purposes. They do not currently exist within Final Cut Pro.
