Automatic Duck to Ship Automatic Composition Import FCP

New Plug-in Suite imports OMF Compositions (December 05, 2001)
Automatic Duck, Inc., today announced it will release during the first quarter of 2002, Automatic Composition Import FCP, a software plug-in suite for Adobe After Effects 5.5 and Final Cut Pro 3.0. Based on the 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.

According to the company, Automatic Composition Import FCP transfers an entire Final Cut Pro timeline into Adobe After Effects and imports all the media necessary to 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.

Highlights include:

  • Layers are kept separate,
  • Clips maintain their individuality (and their names)
  • Speed changes are translated
  • Media handles come in
  • Timeline is reconstructed


    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
