automatic_duck_icons.pngEver needed to import your Avid sequences into Final Cut Pro or vice versa?  Automatic Duck makes plug-ins that translate edited sequences between Avid & Final Cut Pro, and even After Effects, Pro Tools, and other digital video editing tools.  In one step, Pro Import FCP imports your Avid OMF composition, builds all your video tracks, assembles your master clips and recreates many of your effects inside Final Cut.

The accuracy of the translation will amaze you.  Not only will all your layers come across in one import, but many Avid effects are translated into FCP equivalents.  Avid Picture-in-Picture parameters are turned into Scale and Position adjustments in the Motion Tab.  Superimpose effects are turned into Opacity settings.  Even keyframes are translated.

Automatic Duck also offers Pro Export FCP which integrates your Final Cut Pro system with Avid, along with Pro Import AE which transfers your Avid, Final Cut Pro, or Motion projects into After Effects and saves you time.  Media Copy is another of Automatic Duck's powerful applications used to move or archive sequences or projects.  You can learn about all of Automatic Duck's products at their website.

Mike Willats of Minds Eye Creative uses Pro Export FCP, and had this to say:

Having worked with Disney for so many years, I have several projects that have evolved year to year on Avid. There are many times I will return to sequences from years past to help complete my work.

This year we had to move everything to Final Cut Pro. I used Automatic Duck FCP Pro Import 2.0 and it has made this process seamless, allowing me to re-create these sequences in FCP with no problems.
