Automatic Duck, the creators of Timeline Integration Engine software for digital media artists, has announced new enhancements to Pro Import FCP, its flagship import tool for Final Cut Pro users. Pro Import FCP 2.0, which will be generally available in Q1 2006, will enable digital media artists to import OMF files from popular digital audio workstations (DAWs), such as Digidesign Pro Tools, into Final Cut Pro.
Additionally, Pro Import FCP 2.0 adds significant new features to enhance the Final Cut Pro workflow, such as import capability from Adobe Premiere Pro, the ability to decompose sequences during import, and the ability to translate Avid Title Effects into Final Cut Pro text generators. These features new to version 2.0 are designed to further simplify, and greatly accelerate, the workflow process of importing designed content from disparate editing systems directly into Final Cut Pro.
Pro Import FCP 2.0 will be available in the first quarter of 2006 and will be priced at $495 for new customers and $195 for an upgrade
