If you’re looking for a FCPX to AE workflow, this handy app should be in your video editing toolkit! ClipExporter2 can export your entire FCPX project into After Effects.
Video editors who need to send a project to a motion designer or compositor can utilize ClipExporter2 for Final Cut Pro X to make this a simple process. ClipExporter2 can export timelines in FCPX to After Effects, as well as create Nuke files from FCPX projects. You can specify the amount of handles you want to give each clip in the export, so you have some room to adjust clips in these apps.
Want to single out just a clip to do some heavy post work, like green screen, compositing, or tracking in another application? Use ClipExporter2 to export raw video clips as QuickTime self-contained or reference movies.
Admittedly, the app isn’t faultless — retimed clips (speed changes) are not supported, and many FCPX effects are discarded upon FCPX to AE export. However, it’s still worth your time to download the free trial in order to see if the app works for you as a FCPX to AE workflow solution.
Here’s ClipExporter2 in action.
