Importing an OMF Composition is Effortless with New Plug-in Suite

for Adobe(R)After Effects(R)5.5 and Final Cut Pro 3.0

Automatic Duck, Inc., a software development company targeting the nonlinear editing and effects industry, today announced the upcoming release of Automatic Composition Import FCP, a new software plug-in suite for Adobe After Effects 5.5 and Final Cut Pro 3.0. Based on the award-winning OMF Composition Import, Automatic Composition Import FCP enables users to transfer an entire Final Cut Pro timeline into After Effects and import all of their media and clips to recreate projects in one easy step.

"We're very excited about bringing our Automatic Composition Import technology to Final Cut Pro users," said Wes Plate, Automatic Duck, Inc. President. "Automatic Duck has taken the power of OMF and applied it to Final Cut Pro, bridging the gap between Apple's award-winning editing software and Adobe After Effects. The amount of timeline information a user is able to translate with Automatic Composition Import FCP is nothing short of revolutionary."

"Final Cut Pro 3.0 is the industry's first video editing solution to deliver professional-quality, real-time effects without the addition of specialized hardware," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations. "Automatic Composition Import FCP streamlines the process of importing projects into After Effects from Final Cut Pro and we're excited to see two of the most powerful QuickTime applications work together so smoothly for unprecedented interactivity. The ability to move projects between the editing and compositing stage and preserve keyframe and clip data delivers an incredible productivity boost to video professionals using the Mac."

Automatic Composition Import FCP will revolutionize the workflow used by Final Cut Pro editors and graphic designers who import projects into Adobe After Effects 5.5, by streamlining this previously time consuming process. In just seconds, Automatic Composition Import FCP transfers an entire Final Cut Pro system timeline into Adobe After Effects and imports all the media necessary to easily recreate a project, such as clip timing and layering information, including many effects. Even keyframes and animating parameters are translated and rebuilt in Adobe After Effects.

"The rich integration enabled by Automatic Composition Import FCP makes this product a must-have for today's digital artists using Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects 5.5," said Steve Kilisky, Adobe After Effects Sr. Product Manger.


Automatic Composition Import by Automatic Duck, Inc. is expected to ship in Q1 2002 and will be available for purchase through selected resellers or the Automatic Duck website at
