  • Sync Motion Project in Final Cut?

    Posted by Jeff Krieger on May 14, 2021 at 4:19 pm

    Hey, novice Motion user…more of a FCPX user…is there a way after I publish a Motion project to Final Cut, drag that project/generator into my timeline, make changes to it…is there a way to go back into Motion and make changes there so it will then show up in my timeline in Final Cut? Kind of like linked files with Photoshop and Illustrator? Thx.

    There are five types of Motion projects, four of which “sync” automatically with FCP, yes. Namely all but the regular Motion project since that can’t be imported into FCP directly either way.

    So if you created e.g. a title, saved it, used it in FCP, reopened it (either via FCP or the Finder), changed it, and saved it again, those changes would be immediate in FCP. Merely any previously used instanced of said title, generator, whatever in any given project would need to be replaced by the (now) new master from its respective browser. Existing instances of a Motion element in a project/timeline are (fortunately) not affected by changes.
