Selecting Clips or Sequences to Send to Motion
The Send To Motion Project command behaves slightly differently depending on
Â One or more Browser clips: The selected clips are sent to a new project in Motion; the
Motion Timeline remains empty and the clips appear in the Motion Media tab.
Â A sequence in the Browser: A new Motion project is created with an identical track
and clip layout as your Final Cut Pro sequence.
Â One or more clips in a sequence: A new Motion project is created that contains only
the clips you selected in your Final Cut Pro sequence, occupying the same position
and track layout as your original selection. This method has an additional option
called Embed Motion Content, which allows you to replace your selected sequence
clips by embedding the Motion project in their place.

In Final Cut Pro, do one of the following:
Â Select one or more clips in the Browser.

If you used the Send To Motion Project command with sequence clips, you can
