MacBreak Studio: Publishing Motion 5 Templates to FCP X

On this week's MacBreak Studio, I show host Steve Martin how to design a quick title in Motion 5 and publish it for use in Final Cut Pro X. Motion 5 really is a dream fx tool for FCP X editors.

am trying to create title in motion 5.0.5, but after saved them in new category i open them in final cut x (10.0.5) and just see a red icon, same thing happen if i just open a title in fcx and try to "open a copy in motion", without doing anything, just opening and saving but still cannot use in final cut.

Not sure what the issue is, David - are you starting with a Motion Title project? Are you going through the Publish process? Does the new title appear in User/Motion Templates/Titles?

Mark - I really enjoyed the introductory Motion tutorials that I purchased through RippleTraining. I'm starting to work on graphic elements for home videos that I'm editing and have created an open as well as a generic bump in which I wish to publish certain values that I may want to change depending on how I end up using the bump graphic in FCP X. The problem is that "Publish Template" does not always appear in Motion's File menu. It appears that others have also run into this problem. I'm trying to publish these original graphics as "RT Classic Generators". Like I said, sometimes I can publish the Motion graphic and other times I can't. The Motion help file says something to the effect that "Publish Template" only appears for "standard Motion templates". Apparently I've created something that isn't a "standard Motion template" but I can't imagine what it is.

Any idea on what I may be doing wrong? Thanks.
