During NAB 2016, we spoke to Automatic Duck co-founder Wes Plate about the upcoming release of Xsend Motion, which converts XML from Final Cut Pro X to a Motion 5 project, building a bridge between the two applications. The software, which costs $99, is now shipping, but if you buy it before June 8, it’s on sale for $79.
“We have been working on Xsend Motion for a long time, and while it was great to announce at NAB that it was coming, we’re thrilled to finally have it available,” says Plate. “The day after it shipped a customer wrote to me that Xsend Motion ‘really saved our bacon.’ Xsend Motion is already finding its audience.”
Xsend Motion, which reads XML exports, or is able to process projects directly from the Final Cut Pro X Share menu, is also able to translate clip transforms, speed changes, and many third party filters. It can be purchased through FxFactory.
