Looks like Automatic Duck is returning. No word on what products will be made, but it looks like there MIGHT be updates to Avid to AE, and possibly competitor to xto7 and 7toX. And also perhaps a way to get Avid to PPro, and PPro to Avid.

You can go from Avid to PPro already, but I don't know if you can go from PPro to Avid.

I wonder how this impacts their relationship wit Adobe.

Looks like website is being rebuilt.

[edit] - wes plate is a king - this just set me off on a tangent -

I'll just point this out off a recent job because I hadn't fully internalised it (at all):

you can now select a clip in the premiere pro timeline and paste it directly into the timeline in after effects.
you can select a clip in the after effects timeline and paste it directly into premiere pro.

a bunch of stuff like masks and keyframes work in both directions.

This is awfully interesting and madly efficient where assets are going from prep to delivery where key shot parts originate in the edit, and assembled parts live in AE.
to have the ability to source shot assets after the fact and plug back in in either direction is bonkers useful and enlightening.
If you have a situation where key shot assets are being curated in the edit going into AE as an ongoing process, that kind of fluid roundtrip is surreally satisfying.

I think people are overly hung up on the notion and efficacy of the monolithic shell AE dynamic link. To all intents and purposes you have live multiple object copy and paste which is as, if not more, useful in actual practise?

for kicks, and I had no idea until two weeks ago, you can also export an entire after effects project with all assets to premiere pro. to flat timelines.
It's an interesting way to dissect stuff. If you want to quickly interrogate the footage assets of an existing AE piece.

Maybe they can do an FCPX to Motion and vice-versa too. ;-)
