I have been using AE Cs4 for basic titles and lower thirds. I have also been doing a little 3D, But I want to know if there have been some really strong improvements in M5 over M4. Sorry, but if it is good, I will use it as a stand alone. I am not going to FCP X for a while.

Well if you don't count the powerful new publishing and rigging options that turn Motion into a full-fledged development tool for effects for Final Cut Pro, the vastly improved keyer, several other new items, full-floating point processing, full color management, and a complete code rewrite - then sure, same tool :-)

Mark, people are just having a hard time getting used to the new workflows and they are so frustrated that their old workflows are gone that they do not even notice the awesome changes. Motion 5 isn't the After Effects killer that everyone was dreaming on, what it is, is a HUGE step forward in getting there.

For me and my business, we could never use After Effects. It's to slow and does not have the content / ease of use. I'll say this thought, After Effects wins because of the community.'

Oh, and get ready for the flood of new Motion Graphics artist wanting a cheap way to get a LEGAL version of their software, $50 price tag is going to be great for Motion.

I love to edit in FCP. Then I select the clips I want to work with in Motion and do Send To Motion. Then I add my graphics and Motion and then just return to FCP and there it is. I'm not happy about the missing "Send To Motion" feature.

Seeing as how you had your hands on Motion well before Tuesday I would say that I would trust your guess on what will and will not happen at Apple in regards to Motion. Any idea on when it will come?

Great point. Like many others I'm busy investing all my time learning After Effects because

1 the way it seemlessly works in a CS5 workflow
2 the huge online community behind it

But if the Motion community grows exponentially, this entire scenario may change.

I'd love to get a detailed, up to date, and objective analysis-comparison between Motion 5 and the latest AE.
I'm sure there are many advantages in using Motion 5 that novices like myself aren't aware of...

Local is the new global
