Rendering Motion Projects for Use in Final Cut Pro

If necessary, you can export a Motion project to a QuickTime movie and import it into Final Cut Pro. This method is less flexible than importing Motion projects directly into Final Cut Pro, so you should usually avoid this option. When you export the Motion project, choose the Animation codec for lossless compression and to include an 8-bit alpha channel. The alpha channel makes it easy to composite the QuickTime movie with your footage in Final Cut Pro.

Important: When importing a QuickTime movie that has been exported from Motion, set the alpha type for the sequence clip in Final Cut Pro to black.
