Modifying a Final Cut Pro X Title in Motion
The presets in the Final Cut Pro X Titles Browser were created in Motion. You can modify
these presets in Motion, then save them as new title effects in Final Cut Pro.

• If the title is a Final Cut Pro X preset, choose “Open a copy in Motion” from the shortcut
A copy of the project opens in Motion, and the duplicated file appears in the
Final Cut Pro Titles Browser.

The original project opens in Motion.
If the preview image used when creating the effect in Motion was saved with the project,
that media appears in the template.

• To save the updated Motion-created template as a copy, choose File > Save As, complete
the save dialog information, then click Publish.
Note: When a preset Final Cut Pro title is applied to the Final Cut Pro Timeline and then
modified in Motion, the saved changes do not affect instances of the template in the
Final Cut Pro Timeline. However, after the modified version of the preset is applied to
the Final Cut Pro Timeline, any subsequent changes made in Motion to the template
affect instances of the title in the Final Cut Pro Timeline.
The template is saved and appears in Titles Browser in Final Cut Pro.
