With Pro Import AE for Adobe After Effects, your digital desktop has never been more powerful or compete. Translating a sequence from an Avid or Final Cut Pro editing system, or a project from Apple's Motion 2 takes just seconds, importing all your media and clips in one step. Effects are translated and recreated for you and your timeline becomes a composition in After Effects, ready for you to take your vision to the next level.

Features at a Glance

Slip your shots in After Effects using media handles
Not only are your edits translated, your media is imported -- All the media referenced by your sequence. This means you can actually slip and trim your shots in After Effects!

Layer name maintenance, what you had is what you get
When you import your sequence, the layers in After Effects are named after the clips you had in your Avid or FCP timeline. No dealing with odd media file names.

Advanced interface offers powerful control over import
You can choose the direction layers "step" in AE, choose to use Avid render media, verify FCP media timecode (Timecode validation only available on Mac), override composition settings, and more!

No duplicate media files
After Effects uses the same media files as your NLE, so no additional storage space is required.

Not only are many parameters translated into After Effects, but keyframes are too!

Save time and money
Even the most complex sequences import in just seconds. The time you save is enormous, soon you won't be able to work without it!
