[Walter Soyka] "Look in your Macintosh HD > Library > QuickTime folder, and you'll see a file called Motion.component. This component allows the system to present Motion files as QuickTime-accessible media, which were rendered on-the-fly (and under-the-hood) by the Motion rendering engine. Any QuickTime-aware application could "import" .MOTN files this way"

That component did the work, then. I have an MXF component that does virtually the same thing for FCP7. It worked with Quicktime and basically married all of the disparate P2 information through XML, but presented the information to FCP via Quicktime.

So while it is certainly a function of Quicktime, the instructions that the component carries out are probably via some sort of language. In that link you sent, it said it gave him a flattened file, which means that the component is running a translation, it isn't simply saying motion is a codec.

And then going FROM FCPX to Motion is different again, as things need to be timed and layered and sorted which seems to indicate some sort of language that's being used. I don't know, it's speculation on my part, but QT components aren't available in FCPX as there's no QT API like there used to be.
