    Before I upgrade – can anyone confirm whether Motion 5 roundtrips with FCP7 , in the same way Motion 4 does?

    Thanks,

    Ken.

    It does not.

    Thanks – but that’s a shame – I use motion for all my titles in FCP7 – but FCPX doesn’t give me many of the edit tools I need at present – so I’ll stick with Motion 4 until FCPX gets revamped….

    Cheers,

    Ken.

    Change is hard but without change you can’t make a dollar.

    Perhaps, if it’s change for the better – but if you want that discussion here’s the place:

    May I jump in here and ask this:
    1) ignoring round-tripping,
    can I buy/use Motion 5 as a stand-alone to create graphics, render them out THEN import finished projects into FCP7?
    2) does M5 recognize M4 projects?
    3)does loading M5 DELETE M4 or can they co-exist, like FCP7 and X?
    thanks

    Stephen is right on – in fact, if you think about it, Motion 5 is absolutely the deal of the century.

    I do just what your asking.

    Mark said it best, Motion 5 is seriously the greatest buy I have seen to date.

    I will “fourth” that! Is that a real word?

    I have not jumped on the FCP X bandwagon just yet and will leave it for a while till it gets the tender attention that it needs to make it a workable editing platform (for me). I am more than happy with FCP 7.

    Motion 5 at £29.99 (UK) is a steal and you can use it alongside Motion 4 (see Apples site https://support.apple.com/kb/HT4722?viewlocale=en_US bottom section for tips on doing so).

    For me so far it seems quicker but more testing needed. The advantage is I can get used to the new interface for the price of a few pizzas and just export as a movie and drop into FCP 7.
