sending to motion something that was already done in motion
on Sep 1, 2007 at 4:55:09 pm

OK, here is a situation, so in FCP 2 i did my edit, and I selected one part of it and send it to motion, did some effects, saved it there, and so in FC timeline after rendering I see the result, this works fine. but then I what I want to do is to send the same sequence coming from the motion, to a new motion project, i mean let's say I did titles on the video, and this final result fades out to something else on my timeline, so then I select both of the videos, with titles and one it fades to and send it togather to a new motion project. What happens is that new motion projects shows black screen where it is supposed to show my video with titles. Am I doing something wrong?

Howdy,

If you want to edit an already-created Motion "clip" (something you've already sent to Motion) then right-click on it and choose 'Open in Editor'. That will open it in Motion.

You can't embed Motion projects within Motion projects, so sending something twice doesn't work.

[specialcase] "You can't embed Motion projects within Motion projects"

You can import one Motion project into another Motion Project by importing or dragging from the File Browser inside Motion.

Howdy,

Doing a drag-and-drop as you described imports the contents of another project, but it's not embedded. i.e. it's not a procedural relationship, it just copy/pastes the stuff into current project.

Thanks. I think I see what you mean. If you drag the project into another project's group and all of the parameters are applied the the group is that procedural?

Howdy,

By "procedural", I mean this: say you have project A and project B. When you embed project A inside project B, you're making a reference. If someone were to make changes to A, you would see them reflected in the embedded version in B.

Motion projects embedded in an FCP sequence work this way.
