In the process of building a project, it is very likely that your video will be partially constructed or influenced by every application included in the Final Cut Studio line.  You may cut and edit in Final Cut Pro, sweeten the audio with Soundtrack Pro, add some high velocity motion graphics with Motion, export as a high quality MPEG 2 file thru Compressor, then build a complex DVD with DVD Studio Pro.  Becoming aware of the nuances of the workflow between applications is key to getting the most bang for your buck from your Final Cut Studio Investment.

It is possible, while in Final Cut Pro, to open a clip from your sequence directly into the Motion application for manipulation.  After you are finished tweaking the graphic, simply save it and the changes you have made to the clip will be updated in your sequence within Final Cut Pro.


First, right click on a clip in the Final Cut Timeline.  Next, choose the Send To option to open your project into Motion.

Once you have your clip open in Motion, add your effects then save your work in Motion and the clip will be updated in Final Cut Pro reflecting the changes you have made.

Genius DV's training classes will show you how to integrate these applications together for optimal video production.  Classes are small and fill up fast, so call today to reserve your spot!
