    The big difference I see between them is Motion 5 is $50 and you keep forever, while After Effects is $20 a monthly fee.. Is there a absolutely huge difference between the two programs? I'm working on a project that requires some graphics FCPX can't do alone and I'm trying to be cost effective.

    Motion 5 integrates well with FCPX. If you don't need all of the bells/whistles/dohickies that After Effects has (along with the steeper learning curve), get Motion.

    One thing I'm trying to do in particular is bring life to still images such as the video in this link.
