We typically will slate our Final Cut Pro projects when they are not the final deliverable. A great workflow is to create the template in Motion, save it as a template, and then it becomes available in Final Cut Pro.

The first step is to create the slate in Motion. Use individual text layers for the different lines of information. You can add your logo to the slate at this time. Once you have your slate the way you want it, save it as a template, and be sure to check the box to collect the media. This way if you did include a graphic/logo in the slate, it will stay with the template in the templates folder.

To use the template you will need to select it from the Master Templates (located in either the Video Generators or off of the Sequence menu. Once open in the Viewer go into the controls tab, and change the information fields to describe the project you are creating it for. Last of all bring the slate into your timeline.

I have three slate templates. One basic slate that displays the information only, another that has color bars before the slate, and the third has color bars and a 10 second countdown. Technically I only need the last one, and I could just trim it as needed.
