Newbie question; Importing motn. alpha into FCP?
on Jul 17, 2008 at 3:31:02 am

Hi all,

I used a moving lower 3rd template in Motion that has a background layer that can be replaced with video. I was able to do that, but instead of making a ton of clips to import back into FCP, Is there a way to save a .motn and import it into FCP with the alpha?


In reading previous posts, it seems that from within Motion I can make a QT w/alpha (Animation w/Millions of colors), but is there a way to save a Motion project file and import it into FCP (without using a QT file)?

Also, whichever way you guys say is the best, could you tell me what I need to do in Motion (step by step) to make sure the background will key out.

Thanks in advance!

Bill

Check your manual regarding Motion Templates- assuming we're talking about Motion 3/Final Cut Studio 2.

(I won't be able to access FCP for a few days)

Yes- it would show you how to create templates in Motion with alphas that you can use for what you want to do in FCP.

Check out this Stephen Smith tutorial right here in the Cow Library. It is nothing short of GREAT.
