TOPIC: Motion made titles/effects/... have no audio?

Motion made titles/effects/... have no audio? 15 Jul 2015 07:57 #66494

Made a title in Motion, added some 'Toon' sound-effects - but shared to FCPX no sounds at all ... did I miss some checkbox to ckeck?

AFAICT, titles and effects do not have audio in FCP X.

You can, however, export as a movie in Motion with alpha channel, and import that into FCP X, and then you get the audio; of course then you'll have to edit the title text in Motion every time you use it, export, import, which is a hassle.

Thanks for your suggestion - in this case, the convenience to type the title in FCPX is more important than the audio.

Our workaround:
I created an audio-file with the correct timing (there's an INsound and an OUTsound for some lower-third), so, I can apply the audio track by setting the skimmer at the beginning of the title, Q, done.

Tell me it's not still true... surely. I've created a title sequence with funky audio effects for my new video podcast in Motion, and found it's silent when applied in FCP. I can't find any mention of this limitation in the Motion User Guide.

Actually, it is mentioned in the guide.  "Note: Audio files saved in a Motion template will not be available in Final Cut Pro."

Thanks Ben... you're right. I'm rather dismayed to discover this limitation though.
