Reel Rants / new plugin
Ximport vs XtoCC
Automatic Duck announced today a plugin for After Effects users to quickly take a project from Final Cut Pro X to After Effects. There is a 14 day free trial and you can keep it for $199. Visit their site at http://www.redgiant.com/products/automatic-duck-ximport-ae/
Personally, I use Motion for all of my graphics, but I know a lot of you love After Effects.
Alternatively, for $49 you can use XtoCC (formerly Xto7) from Intelligent Assistance to do pretty much the same thing- along with going to Premiere and Audition.
Lastly, let's not forget about Clip Exporter ($109 in the App Store)
Feel free to leave in the comments what you prefer and why.
