After Effects & FCP Integration
on Oct 26, 2009 at 2:21:23 pm

Hey guise,

I'm starting a new big project that will envolve a lot of effects and working with animators etc.

The look of it will some how be like the movie:






any how it will use After effects and also materials from 3d animator.

Well my first question is about the integration between AE & FCP.

Im coming from the ADOBE CS4 environment (premiere Pro).
Where I could just select few clips on the time line and edit them in AE going back to Premiere.. and back to AE change the composition and it will auto update on Premiere.

I saw something like that between FCP & Photo shop.
Will this be the same thing with FCP & AE?

what is the recommended workflow ?
Will I be forced to export uncopressed QT send it to AE then re-import back to FCP etc?

Is there a recommended tutorial on that subject?

Not that easy.
You have this free script that lets you export a basic cuts sequence to AE. No way back:

For a more pro solution, Google "AutomaticDuck".

THANKS!.

I'll try the script later on.

The AutoDuck - is very expensive!! costs like the hole NLE program! :D

what about the traditional work flow?
Just export uncompressed QT to AE

and then importing final video to FCP?
which formats are recommended?

It will be great to hear from ppl that use AE with FCP.

[Ariel Brener] "Just export uncompressed QT to AE "
People is using Prores as intermediate codec and for mastering.
The new 444 (YUV/RGB) supports Alpha Channel.

Ariel,

I use AE and FCP every day. I find the best thing to do is organize your work flow with folders to hold your elements your moving back and forth.. I also make sure my projects all have the same type of settings and codecs to limit the re-rendering. If you take your time and pay close attention and try a few things you will develop your own system that works well. Every project I have has folders AE, FCP, MOTION, Approval Movies, Elements, Masters. etc. I know this sounds basic, but it makes an incredible difference to my work flow using all these different tool sets. Like everything in life, its trial and error, you will get there, once you get a system going you can use scripts or automater to help with the speed.
