Now you can easily animate in 3D using Motion and Final Cut Pro X!
Eneo3D combines Apple Native 3D SceneKit and Apple Motion FxPlug to create a powerful 3D Animation tool for Motion and Final Cut Pro X. The Eneo3D FxPlug generates a self contained 3D scene where you can make Objects from 2D, Import Animated Models, apply Materials and Geometry Modifiers, Create Titles with Physics for Collision and Bounce or perform Explosions, Twists, Bends, Bubble and so much more!
Since Eneo3D needs a lot of GPU ram, (4GB or more recommended) a Smart Workflow is to Export a ProRes 4444 QT clip to stand in for the Generator instead of populating your FCPX Timeline with several 3D Generators. The Apple Motion application is the host for the Eneo3D FxPlug and is the best place to access the complete range of incredible tools. Use Motion to Export your QT clips to FCPX for the best workflow performance.
It's not required, but you can use the Free Apple App Xcode for a wide range of 3D Model editing capabilities including UV Surface Map assignments and Export to SceneKit scn.
Use Sets and Props from Popular Vendors like Daz3D, Poser, TurboSquid, CGTrader, SketchFab, SketchUP, Thingiverse and More!
We often use the free Daz 3D application to create animated Models for export to Collada dae and Import to Eneo3D.

Ratings and Reviews
I need to bend and curve the tltle baseline and cap line. This does the job.
The geometry mesh feature for glossy text reflections is pretty cool. I'd say this is worth it for the typography features alone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
