Automatic Duck Pro Export FCP Offers Significant Improvements to the Final Cut Pro to Avid, Quantel and Pro Tools Workflow ¨ (September 04, 2008)

DMN Newswire--2008-9-4--Automatic Duck (, the creators of timeline integration software for digital media artists, announced today it will demonstrate its newly enhanced version of the company’s flagship Timeline Integration solution for Final Cut Pro users – Pro Export FCP 4.0 during IBC 2008 this month in Amsterdam.  At its stand #7.K21 in the Plug In Pavilion, Automatic Duck president, Wes Plate, will be on hand to meet European customers and partners and highlight all new developments with the Company.

Automatic Duck users continue to champion the advantages of the Company’s timeline translation tools, often hailing the critical role ‘the Duck’ plays in their everyday workflow.  Rob Birnholz, owner of Absolute Motion Graphics, a post production house in Orlando, had this to say about Automatic Duck:

"I'm a very solutions-oriented guy; I approach each project as a workflow challenge to be solved.  It's critical that all the tools I use blend together,  and this is one of the key things Automatic Duck does for my workflow.  Final Cut Pro plays a big role in my everyday work.  Being able to pre-build segments in Final Cut -- real time playback is very important for me -- then export my builds instantly is a huge time saver.  Automatic Duck ties my entire workflow together.  It’s a no-brainer!"
