BBC News animation using Apple Motion and Final Cut Pro X

Thursday, 19 January 2017

I visited BBC New Broadcasting House in central London last week with Iain Anderson. As we were being shown around the BBC News headquarters, we happened across an animator working on a piece about Trump's inauguration day. He was editing it in Final Cut Pro X with plugins created in Apple Motion 5, both commercial and custom. 

Iain and I gave him some tips in making plugins - including replicator sequence behaviours. He also showed us BBC-branded plugins he made for Final Cut Pro X titles and animated graphs.

We also were happy to talk to others at the BBC on the latest developments in Final Cut Pro X workgroup collaboration.
