    Media Composer Round-trip to Apple Motion

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have any experience or insight regarding workflows incorporating Media Composer and Apple Motion5?

    I'm editing a short film shot with a DSLR that unfortunately has some sgnificant noise in a few low-light shots. I have Neat Video installed in Motion 5 (which is brilliant), but I'm not sure what the best workflow would be to export from Avid and import back in. I don't think Motion 5 knows about AAF...

    Should I just wait until the film is edited and color graded in Avid and apply the noise reduction later on, or should I try to export my raw shots and then bring them back following noise reduction?

    Thanks everyone!

    I can see a lot of alternatives here, especially with the new Media Composer 6 version.

    Importing the origin clips to Motion 5, do the adjustments and export to a mov file, maybe Prores HQ, that Avid can ama link is one of all the alternatives.

    -or you could just use BCC's denoise plug in.  You'd stay inside Avid and avoid two needless recodes.
