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.
Keyframes 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!
