Automatic Duck Xsend Motion is a bridge between Final Cut Pro X and Motion

Xsend Motion

What is Xsend Motion?

I’ve always been a big fan of the Automatic Duck tools and they’ve been known to have one of the coolest logos in the industry. But more importantly, their tools have always helped get your projects from one host to another, like a bridge between two cliffs. The Automatic Duck tools have been workflow godsends for so many people in the industry. Xsend Motion creates a bridge between Final Cut Pro X and Motion, and if you’re a power user, this is very obvious to you that this was missing! Wes Plate of Automatic Duck is back with a new product that translates those Transform parameters, titles, blend modes and more, from FCP X to Motion.

Here’s a little video to give you an idea how it works.

Xsend Motion Reviews

There have been a few reviews out in the past week since it was released and they have been very positive. Don’t believe me? Here it is from some others.

Buy Xsend Motion from Automatic Duck

You can download a demo and try Automatic Duck’s Xsend Motion for yourself. There are a couple of things you need to know.

  1. It’s Mac only, but that should be no problem since FCPX and Motion are also Mac only.
  2. It requires Noise Industries FxFactory to run (free download).
