Portland, Oregon - September 9, 2015 - Red Giant is partnering with software powerhouse Automatic Duck to bring users two new products: Automatic Duck Ximport AE and Automatic Duck Media Copy 4.0. Both leverage Automatic Duck's rich experience in transferring projects between host applications and locations. Ximport AE instantly transfers entire timelines, including cuts, third-party effects, transitions and more, directly from Final Cut Pro X to Adobe After Effects. Media Copy 4.0 uses AAF and XML to vastly simplify copying and moving media files from any Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X or Avid Media Composer/Symphony project. The addition of Ximport AE and Media Copy 4.0 to the Red Giant collection of software plug-ins for visual effects and motion graphics artists are just the first of more exciting products to come between the Red Giant and Automatic Duck collaboration.
"Automatic Duck is one of those iconic brands in post-production that has made a huge impact on the work of so many artists." says Aharon Rabinowitz, Red Giant's head of marketing. "Its workflow solutions have helped countless editors and motion graphics designers work faster so that they can spend more time on the creative aspects of their projects. We're truly excited to work with Automatic Duck to create products that are the best in their class by addressing what artists truly need to get the job done."
