I am looking for recommendations for the most efficient method of doing a lot of text that ends up in a Final Cut timeline.
I have 8 hour long shows to add about 50 graphics and titles to each show. A lot of the text needs to be different fonts, sizes and colors with a some of them needing full screens of text. Most of the design work begins in After Effects for the animated backgrounds, but making 400 renders (8 shows times 50 graphics) is not efficient.
I have used LiveType for shows like this in the past, and the workflow was pretty decent. I am using a new MacPro running Snow Leopard, so I have looked for solutions other than LiveType. So far I have been making templates in Motion, which works slick in some instances. Boris Title 3D has been used also, but is cumbersome. Most of the text is used on top of the AFX created backgrounds. A while back I seen a product that, I think was a standalone product that made the creation of multiple text pages easy. I thought it was made by DV Garage, but I can't seem to find info on the product.
So.... any suggestions?

Thanks!

I've never used it, but there's MoType.

I've not used AutoMotion, but perhaps it'd help.

Thanks for the replies. AutoMotion sounds promising, I am looking into it now.
