Im using fcp for editing. Ive seen a pos cast where Richard Harrington makes a lower 3rd title in photoshop which can be exported and used in fcp.

Is there a way of doing this using video in after effects and exporting it so that the lower 3rd animation can be used in fcp?

Ive got an animated cog that I want to use as part of the name strap Id like to bring this in to fcp and add the name of the person. Is this possible? Or do I need to export the clip and do it all in after effects?

Thanks for any help

I wouldn't do that -- you'd spend a lot or needless time rendering in AE. Once you have the animated lower-third backgound built in AE, RENDER (don't export! Learn to use the AE Render Queue!) a QT movie in either the PNG or Animation Codecs. I recommend Animation since it's a lower third. Render with an Alpha Channel, Millions of Colors plus, and Straight (i.e. not premultiplied).

If the above sounds confusing, there is plenty of information in AE Help.
