I guess if I was a video editor I’d feel a little betrayed since it’s clear FCPx doesn’t have a lot of features pros need to do their jobs. If Adobe did something similar with After Effects I’d cry my eyes out.
It looks like Motion 5 has much more integration with FCPx as far as publishing animated elements (and even effects) and being able to easily switch back and forth between the applications. This would be good for people familiar with both applications and give FCPx users more flexibility with Motion 5 templates. The user base for FCPx and Motion 5 may get a lot bigger since it’s so affordable. Offering Motion 5 templates on VH might be a good idea but only if the (quality) Author base is there.
I created a template in Motion 4 that is being sold on the other template site and I guess it’s doing ok sales-wise. My intention was to create more Motion templates but I just never put in the effort because I’m so comfortable with AE (my BFF ). However, Motion was VERY easy to learn and intuitive, so I may need to widen my social circle a bit more
I’m definitely considering upgrading Motion, if only I could clone myself so I can do AE at the same time!
Apple has always done stuff like this. I guess they’re thinking ahead, but you’ve got to wonder sometimes if they’re not thinking a little too far ahead.
They definitely seem to lean against the serious pro market at every turn. I’m still quite gutted that they ditched Shake, y’know.
But they won’t have done this by mistake. They have some kind of game plan. Maybe they’re leaving the pro market to Avid etc. and realising that the prosumer / fanboy market is soooo much bigger.
But I would have to ask the question: What’s the point of having some serious color correction tools if you can’t have your program hooked up to some seriously properly calibrated broadcast monitor?

Wasn’t imovie and final cut express fanboy / prosumer territory? They ruined a great pro app that “was” practically the norm in the industry.
Disappointed. Premiere Pro here i come. Not a fan of avid, never was.

I work as a video editor and downloaded the app, looked at it and saw it was missing SO MANY PRO FEATURES that I called and got a refund. I am really sad about the product, not so much that the product is awful for pro users but that Apple is basically telling pro users to bug off – all we care about are semipro and hobbyist.
I guess it is time to look at premier and avid since it looks like they want to develop and support pro users.
It is a sad day considering that many of the most “hard-core” apple users I know feel absolutely betrayed.
Business is business…better tons of imovie fans upgrade to a “pro” version of imovie for a good price, then few few nerds looking for multi cam stuf,xml,matrox, cross platform integration…
I was reading that for the new release of PPro cs5.5, engineers over Adobe, called pro editors of Avid and Final cut seat them and edit with PPro, and listen what they miss in they workflow with Premiere .Adobe add those features
Pro Cs5.5 have new feature present in final Cut 7 like the drag and drop in the program window, and the match frame (really great),and the powerfull right click a clip and open after effect composition,apply your effects, and render from PPro timeline, with Cuda acceleration if you have it.
I was looking forward to the new FCP , but now I can tell you that Premiere Pro CS 5 .5 is the best NLE option my small home workfow right now.
