I am having trouble sending a film sequence that was done in Final Cut Pro 7 to Adobe After Effects CS5. I have downloaded a free script from Popcorn Island, but all it seems to do is make it unable to add transitions in the AE timeline as seen below. Is it safe to say to go with software as Automatic Duck?
i really just want to use AE to color, and add transitions. Thank you for reading.
Yikes, you sure you wanna do that? That sounds incredibly painful. Why not do your color in FCP or Motion or Color? And there are a zillion fxPlug transition effects that are much easier to do in FCP. May I suggest that you may not be using the right tool for the job? FCP should be your last stop, not AE.
If you really want to, it's a free country... There's Automatic Duck Pro Import AE and Boris XML Transfer. Duck is time tested and everyone who uses it, swears by it. Boris is cheaper, but it's very new.
