In older versions of motion, you used to be able to customize what your export! Now, in Motion 5, it's got the pidlyest section of exporting options! Is there anything else I can do??

Thanks guys,

Yes, you lost the ability to do the Animation codec. One of many reasons why I'm still on Motion 4.

I believe, but I'm not sure, you have more codec options in Compressor which you can send your Motion project to. I'm assuming someone on that version will clarify this.

[AJ Robinson] "Compressor=more money."

You're kidding, right!!??? ;-)

Compressor is a complete steal at its current price - I'm not sure how you could justify not buying it!

Stephen is quite right - except that the best way to do this now is to use the Export using Compressor Settings rather than Send to Compressor as it saves quite a few unnecessary steps.

You can of course use any codecs and settings that are supported by Compressor (including Animation) which really gives you a lot of flexibility, so I'm not sure you're really losing anything that you didn't have before. Unless of course you don't have Compressor installed ...

Regardless, that's another $50 bucks I don't have. Since mowing season is over, i'm broke again.
Plus I'm not really doing any real videos so I don't exactly need that right now, I was just wondering.
I see now, apple took it out of motion and put in another program- to make you buy it. Right?

Yup, that's the way it works ;-) Cunning, huh?!

That is true, but they lowered the price so it is cheaper if you are a new user to buy FCPX, Motion & Compress. Then it was to purchase Final Cut Studio 2.

I think you can do a work around if you where to export as an image Seq. Then build it in FCP.
