The Motion interface has been redesigned specifically for Final Cut

Pro editors, with a familiar look and feel that makes it easy to

switch between the two applications. A new single-window layout puts

all the tools you need at your fingertips, and redesigned icons make

it easy to identify options at glance. The darker look of the new

interface is designed to enhance color perception as you work with any

combination of video, stills, and motion graphic elements. Many

filters now include onscreen controls for direct, intuitive

manipulation of effects. And keyframe editing is much more accessible

thanks to a new view that displays the Keyframe editor below the


Motion features new intelligent templates that let you work quickly

and flexibly with high-quality effects, titles, transitions, and

generators as you edit in Final Cut Pro. Create Smart Motion Templates

with any combination of single parameters and rigs, which let you

control a group of parameters with a simple slider, pop-up menu, or

checkbox. For titles, define fixed durations for intro and outro

sections, and Final Cut Pro adjusts the title body to fit the timing

in the middle. Or set up templates with multiple aspect ratios to have

Final Cut Pro automatically use the correct layout based on the frame

size of your footage. Publish templates to Final Cut Pro simply by

saving them.

Save steps when you're working with a large number of parameters.

Rigs let you adjust related parameters with a single control - a

slider, pop-up menu, or checkbox. For example, change the colors of

all the objects in your project in one step, or apply a complicated

logo to a scene with a click. Set up rigs with drag-and-drop ease and

change them at any time. Because rigs let you switch quickly among

options in real time, they are ideal for Smart Motion Templates used

in Final Cut Pro.

Final Cut Pro includes a rich content library featuring titles,

transitions, effects, and generators, most of which are Smart Motion

Templates. Open any of these templates in Motion for further

customization, then publish your modified template to Final Cut Pro by

saving it. The new template is available for use immediately.

Creating chroma keys has never been easier. Just drag and drop the

Keying filter for an instant chroma key that is accurate for most

projects. If the blue- or green-screen background is unevenly lit, or

if there are other problems in the original footage, use onscreen

controls and a simple slider to adjust the key color and edge

softness. For additional adjustments, instantly access advanced

controls, including an intuitive color wheel.
