DMN Newswire--2010-6-7--
  Automatic Duck (, the creators of timeline integration software for digital media artists, announced today the immediate availability of Pro Import AE 5.0 for the Mac.  Debuted at NAB 2010 last month in Las Vegas, Pro Import AE 5.0 is a major new upgrade to the industry-popular timeline translation tool for After Effects users that offers compatibility with Creative Suite 5 (CS5) from Adobe, which also launched at NAB 2010.

With this announcement, users can begin taking immediate advantage of Pro Import AE 5.0 and its powerful timeline translation capabilities, as well as new support for Motion 3 and 4 project import.  Additionally, Automatic Duck designed Pro Import AE 5 to continue supporting earlier versions of Adobe’s Creative Suite, including CS3 and CS4.

“It was very important to us that we deliver a CS5-ready solution for our customers as close to the CS5 launch as possible.  Our good friends at Adobe worked closely with us to ensure that we could deliver on our promise and create an enhanced solution that simply makes After Effects users lives’ that much easier,” said Wes Plate, president of Automatic Duck.  “Pro Import AE is one of our most popular solutions, and with the support of our users and beta testers, we continue to find ways to improve the workflow, streamline it, while staying current with all the new evolutions in the market.  And judging from the reactions we received at NAB 2010, we think our customers will be very pleased with what we’ve done with Pro Import AE 5.0.”

Automatic Duck Pro Import AE 5.0 offers users a broad range of enhancements, including support for Adobe CS5 and such new developments as:
 - 64-bit compatible plug-in supports After Effects CS3 through CS5;
 - Support for Motion 3 and 4 project import;
 - Option to replace Final Cut Pro proxy media with R3D files;
 - DPX/Cineon sequence support from Final Cut Pro;
 - Support for MXF4Mac and other MXF QuickTime components;
 - Improved text import with font, color, size and style info (CS4 and later);

What Beta Testers Have to Say 
Beta testers have always played a significant role in the development of new products, and as importantly, in the continued development of existing Automatic Duck solutions.  Here’s what beta testers have to say about Pro Import AE 5.0:

“After Effects can work in 32 bit uncompressed space, giving total control to visual effects and color grading. Since my clients work and deliver using Final Cut Pro,  Automatic Duck Pro Import AE is the natural bridge between editorial and finishing in our workflow.”

Joost van der Hoeven, Senior Audio-Visual Designer at

“As a Colorist with Apple Color, being able to ingest Avid project in Final Cut Pro is a must!  Also, with the lack of compositing in Apple Color, Pro Import AE 5.0 allows me to finish projects with ease, efficiently and with a lot of control.”

Fred Fleureau, Film & Television Colorist
