    I don't like Motion 5 as well as Motion 4, maybe because I know it. I downloaded Motion 5 on my new mac air, but I want to download Motion 4 from file share from my Mac Book Pro. Do I have to dump 5 then download 4?
    Do I have to share the entire Final Cut Studio, or just the motion CD's.
    I was hoping Motion 5 had more ready made templates, like 4 but I didn't find any.

    By default, motion 5 does not download with additional content - just the software. If you go the menu bar and search for the download additional content selection, more content should be available via software update. I'm not sure how this material differs from motion 4, but if you have a speedy connection, you may want to check it out first.

    If it is only about the templates, you can import them into 5. No need to reinstall the whole shebang.

    Ryan - loved your promo and the music you chose for it. Did you create that in Motion 5? I am on Motion 4 and wondering about changing to 5 but still use FCP 7 is that possible? Please advise.

    Yes, that is possible. I have Motion 5 while also having FCS 3.

    When you download Motion 5, FCS will be put into its own folder. There's no other change to your FCS. It'll still run perfectly.
