Start the (com)Motion.

Ho-lee... In a special Sunday announcement today, Apple whipped the sheet off of Final Cut Pro HD, Shake 3.5, a beta for something new called Xsan (Storage Area Network), and – here's the cool part – Motion, a new product which seems to be a direct shot across the bow of Adobe After Effects. Now, it doesn't seem as fully-featured as After Effects, instead sitting somewhere between Shake and LiveType, but for $299 it delivers such sweet little morsels as particle effects, and it's tightly integrated into Final Cut Pro. Nice. Looks like the last piece of my Adobe video arsenal may be on its way out the door.
