Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting sources from Final Cut Pro X, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Creating Backgrounds.
…If you have a source clip inside of Final Cut Pro 10,…you'll want to get that clip out to use in a motion graphics application.…However, that clip may need to be looped.…If you take a look here at this original clip, watch what happens.…When it gets to the end here, it's going to jump back to the beginning.…Let's make sure we've got it looping.…There we go, loop playback is on.…And look at the jump back.…Well, there's a little shift and bobble there.…I like the movement of traffic through the scene.…It's creating reflections that move around.…
