Here’s an awesome script that I’ve used for years but never posted. It lets you export Illustrator paths as shape files that can be imported into Apple Motion. Yes, you can import .ai files directly, but theyre not editable. Paths exported this way are editable in Motion.
And speaking of Motion, we finally have a way to truly round-trip between FCPx and Motion! And it wasn’t Apple who gave it to us. Who, you ask? Well, Automatic Duck of course!
